Are you planning an adventure abroad? It’ll be amazing, but at the same time you’re going to need cash. If you’re savvy and a little bit bold, you can pay for your entire trip by working while you’re away. There’s a lot of ways of making cash out there, so try out one of these tips the next time you travel.
1. Teach others while you travel
The easiest way to make money by teaching is by teaching English to the locals in the area. If that doesn’t sound like your thing, you can teach almost anything. How about cookery, or guitar? Whatever you’re good at, teach that skill to others for cash.
2. Start a blog
Thought about documenting your travels? Why not start a blog? It takes a bit of time to set up and get going, but once you do you can really build up a readership. Once you do that, you can sell advertising space, and write sponsored posts, in exchange for cash.
3. Sell stock photos
If you’re traveling, you’re sure to be taking some beautiful pictures of the places you’re visiting. You can make some money with no extra hassle by selling those photos to stock image websites. People are always looking for stock images that they can use on their websites and blogs, and they’re willing to pay up.
4. Write online
Are you an excellent writer? Then writing for online services could be a great way to make some money in between adventures. Sites such as Upwork are always looking for freelance writers to come work on their platform. You can find your own clients and work whenever it suits you. If you’re a good essay writer, essay sites like Ox Essays, Essayroo, and UK Writings will pay you to write essays, too.
5. Do seasonal work
Wherever you are, there’s going to be work that needs doing within a certain time period. Flower and fruit pickers are always in high demand. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, it’s a good way to earn a little extra money.
6. Work in bars and restaurants during high season
If you’re in a tourist area, get a gig at a bar during the high season. There’s always need for an extra set of hands.
7. Hand make your own products
If you’re crafty, collect items from the area you’re in and create something from them. Sea shell and glass makes great jewelry, for example. Jump on sites like Etsy and make some cash on the side.
8. Tutor students online
There’s always students looking for tutoring. If you tutor online, you can work with students all around the world, widening your customer base. You can tutor grade school students in the subjects they’re struggling in, or help out older students with their assignments.
9. Film your adventures
Ever wanted to try v-logging? Now’s the perfect time. If you’re comfortable being in front of the camera then you can make cash showing people where you’re traveling. Youtube is a good place to start if you want to edit and upload videos. If you want to live stream what you’re up to, a site like Twitch has got you covered.
10. Use affiliate marketing
Affiliate marketing is partnering up with a company in order to promote their product. If you take up blogging or filming yourself, this is a good way to make some more cash on top of that.
So there you have it, ten easy ways to make money while you’re traveling. Now you can fund your travels while you’re on the move.
