Everybody loves to travel, but lack of funds tends to hold us back.
What if you could travel and earn money at the same time?
Here are 10 ways to make money whilst traveling.
1: Flower, Vegetable or Fruit Picking
Many of the best holiday destinations are close to agricultural areas.
Pay varies depending on country, season and crop but it’s not unusual for farmers to offer accommodation during the season thus saving on boarding costs too.
2: Rent Out Your Car
If you’re going away and leaving your car why not rent it out?
Using Turo you can rent out your car, set a minimum price per trip, have a full tank of gas when you return and its insured up to 1 million dollars and for fire and theft.
Its also totally free to list it!
3: Rent Out Your House!
If you’re not using your car you probably don’t need your house either, so why not rent it out too? With airbnb you’re also insured up to 1 million dollars so you wont need to worry while you’re away.
4: Work in Bars and Restaurants
When travelling to tourist locations in season, bars and restaurants often require additional help. This work will probably be evening work, leaving you free in the daytime to explore.
If you don’t have a work permit you will probably be paid “Under the table!”
5: House Sitting
Maybe you just want to travel and don’t care where. By using Mindmyhouse or Trustedhousesitters you can search for people who want someone to keep on eye on their house and land yourself some free accommodation.
Not only a cheap place to stay but also a great place to network with other travellers. you can also inquire after work as they always need someone on the desk or cleaners, it may not pay much but your accommodation will be free.
7: Flight Attendant
Yes its an obvious one but still good. If you enjoy travelling, international flights usually involve a stay over in which you can explore your destination. You’ll need a good level of English and customer care and you’ll have to study as competition will be tough.
8: Construction Work
If you don’t mind a bit of hard labour you can ask around construction sites if they have any day work. You’ll probably be off the books so be sure that your insurance covers you in case of an accident.
9: Cruise Ships
An ideal way to travel and work at the same time. While you’re sailing you’ll be working but once you dock you’ll be able to explore the destinations. The most likely areas are the Caribbean and the Mediterranean so that’s not bad either!
10: Translator or Teacher
If you know more than one language you can get a job as a translator or language teacher, the only drawback of this being you’ll have to learn a country’s language before you go!
