Traveling is the experience of a lifetime, right? Many people fund their travels by working abroad in jobs such as bar work or fruit picking. If you would rather not spend time working and missing out on experiences, you will have to find a way of working that does not involve being tied to set hours or locations. Here are the top 6 ways to earn money as you travel.
Speak to your existing company before you commence your travels and see if they will let you work remotely. It could be a great way of earning some money on your journey and you will maintain a relationship with your employer too. This could help you land a job when you have finished exploring the world.
Rent Out Your Home
If you own your own home, then you could try renting it out while you are away. This could pay the mortgage as well as giving you a little extra income for your travels. Speak to your local real estate agent who will be happy to help you set this up. For a fee, some of them will offer to keep an eye on your home while you are gone too.
Rent Out Your Car
There is no point in your car being sat in your garage or in a parking lot if you can be earning money from it while you are away. It is free to list your car on Turo and you can set the price per journey yourself. This will give you a great passive income while you are traveling.
Earn money through online trading. All you need is an internet connection and laptop or mobile device to access the world of financial trading. Whether you focus on currencies, shares or other assets such as commodities or cryptocurrencies, online trading is potentially an effective method of accruing income whilst travelling. For beginners, easyMarkets is a notable example of a broker that provides educational materials, an easy-to-learn interface, and risk management tools to help you in your trading journey.
Get paid to be a house sitter. This is a win/win situation as it means you will get free rent as well as being paid for your time. Often, people will pay house sitters if they know they are going to be away for some time. Companies often pay house sitters to look after empty office buildings, but they will allow you to stay on the premises.
Why not advertise your freelancing services on companies such as Fiverr. You can offer anything you want to do such as typing, transcribing or freelance writing. If you have worked in a profession such as accountancy or the legal industry, you could freelance in these areas. Companies will pay for anything from a couple of hours of work to an ongoing arrangement leaving you the freedom to travel and earn money as you wish.
These are just a few of the ways you can earn money while you are traveling. There is a whole world to explore while you are earning it.
