Ways To Make Money Traveling
Before we get started, it’s important to understand that HOWEVER you decide to make money while traveling will cost you something- whether it be your time, flexibility in your schedule, or missing an activity you really wanted to do . No different than being at home, when you’re abroad, no one will just give you money to sit around and do nothing. The first thing I tell everyone who wants to start a travel blog is how much work it is,
Regardless of which option below you think fits your style and skills best, there will be days you’d rather be at the beach or sleeping in, but instead you’ll have to do the thing that is paying for you to have the life you want in a destination you previously only dreamed of.
That said, over the past 10 years, I’ve had some weird jobs- I’ve worked on a cruise ship in the South Pacific, Au Paired two children, taught English in Europe, and bartended in Australia, While they were all a lot of work, each job was totally worth it because it gave me an income (or free flights) to see the world. I would not have been to 40 countries by my 26th birthday if I hadn’t worked while I traveled.
Without further ado, here are these 11 ways to make money traveling.
Teach English abroad (TESL)
Are you fluent in English? If yes, then teaching English is one of the most demanding jobs all across the globe. Teaching a foreign language is a great way to earn good money, and if you are a native speaker, there are great opportunities for you at school to be hired.
Moreover, you can increase your work chances by taking a TEFL course and getting certified and becoming an English expert.
But it’s there aren’t jobs just for English speakers out there. If you speak languages like Spanish or German you may have to ask the locals about any Spanish or German institute and ask them about any job opportunities there.
