People like following other people’s experiences around the world. You also can share your travel journey and adventures with others, and make money while traveling. Decide your destinations, find the most appealing places to go, pack your nicest outfits, be sure you have your selfie stick and GO! Try it yourself, and let them know about yours!
Work remotely while traveling and make money!
Sometimes what stops us from traveling is basically our jobs. However, it isn’t impossible to travel while working + making money! First, you may try and see you if it’s possible for your role to work remotely. That way can keep your current job and travel at the same time!
Otherwise, you may consider another way: There are some positions that allow you to work from afar. This is common for start-up companies, or if you are a social media or marketing manager. This way, you might just as well make money in your home, or in a coffee shop in Italy. Another option is writing for blogs while you are away. For instance, you can contact travel blogs, and offer to write for them. This could be an on-the-road story or a travel log. Real experiences can earn you some good money in this market!
Be an English Teacher
Teach English, learn cultures, travel and make money!
Teaching English opens you a lot of doors: opportunity to travel around the world, learn about different cultures by living like a local, and making money while doing those two! If you love exploring new cultures in an authentic way rather than being a casual tourist, you can consider being an English teacher. This gives you the opportunity to settle down and spend a couple weeks in a place, and get to know the area you are in, in a unique way. It also guarantees an income, which sets it apart from the other ways to make money while traveling.
Become a Tour Guide
Are you one of the people who googles everything about the places they go? Or who loves historical facts, hidden gems and who enjoys talking about them? Well, you are lucky: You can become a tour guide, share your knowledge with others and make money while traveling! At first, you can choose the places you know and love well. This will help you to gain confidence at the beginning. After that, whole world is yours!
There are a couple of agencies who look for guides for a couple of weeks’ spot work. Other option is to organize free tours (don’t worry, you’ll earn some money). In almost every hostel, you can see free tour brochures and people actually joins them! At the end of every tour, people who join will tip you. That can be an interactive way of making money while traveling.
Become a Travel Photographer

The beauty of the world is hidden all around, and think about all the landscapes you will see. Documenting this, with photography or video recordings, makes an opportunity for travel enthusiasts to make money while traveling!
