Travel Therapy Resources

Great Reads to get you Started

Here are some of my go-to reads that I recommend to new travelers or those thinking about starting to travel.

Find a Travel Therapy Job

Go to the Travel Therapy Job Board to look for your next travel therapy assignment. 

The Guide To Travel Therapy

Do you want all of your travel therapy questions answered in one place? The Guide To Travel Therapy is a six-hour course that takes you on your travel therapy journey from the planning phase, to finding a job, to being successful on the job. The course is created and hosted by ME (Julia) and includes a BONUS private Facebook group. If you want to start traveling or are a newbie traveler, this course is a MUST!

Connect with my Recruiters

If you are a therapist who is looking to connect with the current recruiters that I am using for jobs, please fill out this recruiter’s contact form.


Nomadicare is a company, owned by a veteran occupational therapy traveler Laura Latimer, who vets recruiters and pairs them with travelers. If you are struggling to find a recruiter, definitely check out Nomadicare!

Recruiters who have passed the interview and received the Nomadicare stamp of integrity will have gone through over two hours of interviews and vetting! Nomadicare knows the companies who have exclusive contract locations and benefits. They use that information to help fill your needs and get to your dream location faster!

Travel Tax

www.Traveltax.com is your go-to location to have all of your tax questions answered. Please do not rely on recruiters, other travelers, or friends/family members to give you legal and tax advice. Speak to a tax professional, whether it’s somebody local or Travel Tax.

The Traveler’s Conference

The Traveler’s Conference, aka TravCon, is an annual conference of healthcare travelers. The conference is for travelers, by travelers and focuses on providing education, networking, collaboration, and FUN to the community. Mark your calendar to attend next year!

Scanner Pro

Scanner Pro is an app that I use to scan, collect, and send documents. Whether it’s a copy of a TB test or my state licenses. I use this app to scan them into my phone as a PDF and store. I can then extract them as a file and send it to needed recipients.


Furnished Finder

Furnished Finder is an online website designed for traveling healthcare professionals. Travelers can input their contract location and information on the site. Then, vetted hosts can contact travelers with open properties. Unlike other housing sites, this site is specially designed for travel healthcare housing.


Airbnb is a trusted community marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique accommodations around the world. If you are interested in hosting travelers or listing space in your home on Airbnb please read this blog: How To Start An Airbnb In Your Home

HomeAway & Vacation Rental By Owner (VBRO)

HomeAway and VBRO are vacation rental sites that have 1 million property listings worldwide.

Extended Stay America

Extended Stay America has no lease terms and you get the comforts of a hotel and home. Stay for a week while you find an apartment or the whole duration of your contract. The Extended Stay America hotels that I have stayed at have varied and offered different amenities at different locations. My best advice to read reviews on the hotel before booking to get a better sense of the hotel itself. The Traveling Traveler readers can get a special discount on 30+ day stays (up to 50%). For the most current ESA promo codes, please check out this page: Extended Stay America Promo Codes.


Packing can be a significant challenge as a traveler. I love by the motto “less is more!”.

I made some great packing guides that are available here:

Whether you are packing in a suitcase, car, or box, packing cubes can be a great way to help you stay organized while you travel. I especially like the designs from EZPacking because they have a clear design, which makes it easy to see what you have packed in the cube.

Car Rental

Turo is my new go-to site for renting cars on assignment. It’s like the Airbnb of car renting. Individuals rent out their cars by the day, weekend, week, or long-term. I’ve rented cars daily or by the weekend while traveling. I also saved over $500 on an assignment by renting a long-term car from Turo, versus a traditional car rental site. If it’s your first time renting a car, you can save $25 on your rental by booking this affiliate link Save $25 on your first ride with Turo.

Continuing Education


MedBridge is an online continuing education and patient engagement provider for Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Athletic Trainers, and Physical Therapists. It is like a “Netflix of CEU’s”. As a subscriber, you have access to hundreds of online CEU courses as well as live webinars. The courses range from evaluation to treatment and from pediatrics to geriatrics. Courses also include topics that deal with compliance. The Traveling Traveler readers can use promo code “TravelTherapy” to receive up to 40% off annual subscriptions.


Many of you ask where I buy my scrubs since I’m 5’9″ and tall people know the struggle. I have been wearing Figs and Jaanuu scrubs lately and love them! Figs are more of your traditional looking scrubs, with anti-wrinkle and antimicrobial (is that seriously a thing?) fabric. Jaanuu scrubs are more trendy and stylish while maintaining the comfort and function of a uniform. Both can be purchased in long/tall sizes. All of the pictures that you see in me, wearing scrubs, are either Figs or Jaanu

MeetUp helps you connect with like-minded individuals wherever you go. The site is comprised of groups that as the name implies, meet up. There are groups for everything from having brunch, to hiking, to writing, and painting. Meetup can help you to connect with others with similar interests in your new assignment location.
