Your money can go farther when you travel

cost of living impact on travel therapy

A quick follow up to Patrick’s last post about 3 Reasons to Consider Travel Rehab and Therapy Jobs.

Another reason the money can be so good for travel therapists is the cost of living differences across the country.

Why?

Well, if your permanent residence is in a state with a relatively low cost of living like Oklahoma or Arkansas, then the money you make in high cost of living states like California  or Washington D.C. is going to be worth a lot more back home, when you go to buy a car or house for instance.

And conversely if your permanent residence is in a high cost of living state you can travel to and live in low cost of living areas and make major purchases there and scope out cool, new potential places to live, without committing to them.

This rule holds true whether you are a physical therapist, PTA, occupational therapist, COTA or SLP. Use sites like Payscale.com to see the difference for yourself.
