Many people dream of traveling the world but worry about how they will finance it. Earning enough money to travel without an income could require many years of saving money. This can make traveling unattainable for some people because of the financial and time limitations.

However, there is one solution that could make your dream of traveling the world much more attainable – You can earn money while you travel!

Earning money as a traveler could give you the freedom to travel for longer, do more activities and even give you the tools and confidence to leave home in the first place.

Below is a list of tips to help you earn money as you travel.

Earn Money as a Traveler

1. Teach English online

Teaching English online allows you the flexibility and freedom to work from anywhere. You can design your own schedule and teach as much or as little as you choose.

There are a plethora of companies offering online teaching positions and depending on the company you work for, your experience level and how many hours you work, your pay could range from $10-$50 per hour.

In order to teach English online, you will need:

·       A TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certificate or equivalent.

·       To be a native English speaker OR fluent in English with a qualification to show your proficiency.

·       A laptop with a reliable internet connection.

·       Flexibility and availability.

Depending on the company you work for, you may also need a college degree.

2. Become an English teacher in a foreign country

Instead of traveling continuously, many people choose to teach English abroad and travel during school holidays. This gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture, learn another language, make friends and build relationships, while still allowing you to earn money to travel.

One of the most popular foreign countries that you can go now for teaching English is Poland. For teachers living in Poland, you will benefit from long summer holidays, lasting more than 2 months. You will also receive time off in Winter and Spring. This allows you to earn money throughout the year and then travel extensively during the holidays.

If you are interested in traveling and exploring Europe, teaching in Poland, or another European country, could be a great way to do this.

3. Become a content writer or copywriter

Content or copywriting is another flexible profession that allows you to work from anywhere. You can choose to be freelance, meaning you can work for as many, or as few clients as you choose. You could also take on more work at certain times and work less or not take on any work at other times. This allows you to design your schedule to suit your travel plans.

Freelance writing does not usually require any qualifications or experience and getting started is easy. You can also work at any time of the day or night and will not have to worry about different time zones.

There are a huge number of writing jobs available, based on your qualifications, experience, and interests. Pay can vary hugely from $0.01-$1 per word.

4. Start a travel blog

Getting paid to travel may sound too good to be true. However, successful travel bloggers can make money in a number of ways, including through affiliate links, brand partnerships, and by creating their own products. Setting up a successful travel blog can take time and commitment.

To make your blog financially rewarding, use social media as a platform for your blog, identify your target audience, do your research, and post quality content.

Focus on posting photos and videos that are eye-catching, attractive, and capture the essence of what you are trying to portray. When filming videos, plan in advance and use a video editing app to help you. We have some great tips on how to effectively edit your travel videos.

5. Do short term work at hotels and hostels

Hostels and hotels around the world often offer short-term jobs to travelers. You could work at a hostel for a few days, weeks, or even months.

You could provide services such as cleaning, cooking, working on the reception, handling the website, teaching yoga, or organizing events.

Hostels and hotels may offer you free accommodation and meals as payment or may pay you cash.

6. Do seasonal work

Seasonal work is work that only happens during a certain season. Travelers who work as seasonal workers will work during one specific season and use their earnings to travel during the rest of the year.

Some seasonal work options include a ski instructor, surf instructor, dive instructor, working at a summer camp, and fruit picking.

Seasonal workers are often provided with accommodation and food as part of their work, as well as being paid with money. This gives you even more opportunity to save money as you will have very few outgoings.
