Top Ways To Make Money While Travelling


With summer here, it’s possible that you’re off on some travels or you’re thinking about heading off soon. There are a whole host of things that you should prepare before you go to ensure you have an excellent trip, but what about getting things in place that will allow you to keep making money while you’re away? Check out this short list of totally top tips to help you keep making that cash while you’re on the road.

Working Online

This is probably the most obvious way to make money online and there are dozens of ways to do it. The benefit to working online these days is that you don’t need to worry necessarily about your company laying you off or needing you to go to the office as most online jobs include you being your own boss, so you set your hours, days on and off as well as where you work from. With so many places having coworking spaces set up now these days as well, it’s easy to see how this is a way to make money on the road that is not just popular and growing, but becoming a massive way of life for many.

Online Subscriptions

If you are a fan of playing various games online such as casino games or the like, consider online subscriptions. These are great for when you want to play USA lotteries from abroad, especially since you just need to load a user account with the funds to purchase your e-tickets each draw period. Perfect for those who are too busy as well and at risk of forgetting some weeks. After all, you have to be in it to win it!

Teaching English

This is probably one of the most popular ways for people to make money while travelling and for good reason. Teaching English often doesn’t need any real qualifications except to be a native speaker. While this is true of many countries, many more countries are beginning to tighten controls on foreigners teaching English, so be sure to check requirements. Some countries need nothing aside from being a native speaker while some others need as high as a masters degree (in anything) in order to be considered for a role.

Volunteering Exchanges

While not a way to make money per se, this is a great way to save money and will help what money you do have go a lot further. Volunteering exchange websites such as workaway or help exchange (also known as help x) are great ways to find volunteering opportunities around the world that often include room and board in exchange, and sometimes pay if you’re lucky or can lead to paid jobs.

So if you’ve been looking for great ways to make or save money while travelling, consider one  – or a few! – of these great options. So get those bags packed, the wild world awaits!
