4 Ways to Earn Money While Travelling

#1 Working Holiday Visas

Australia, New Zealand, Canada, France, and Singapore are some of the countries that offer working holiday visas. These allow you to stay in a country for up to a year, earning money whilst you explore. Many travellers even admit that they earn more money doing this than they would be working full-time at home, due to higher hourly wages. You can get involved in a range of industries, from fruit-picking and farm work to restaurant and bar jobs.

#2 Teach a Language

If you’re a native English speaker or proficient in other languages like French, Italian, or Arabic, why not travel and teach at the same time? Teaching English in countries like Thailand or Japan can be a valuable experience in itself. Moreover, learning Chinese or Japanese while teaching can be an immersive way to gain language skills, experience new cultures, and broaden your horizons. You can either choose to work as a freelance tutor or apply for a teaching position at a college or night-school.

#3 Teach an Activity

Teaching yoga while traveling is a unique and fulfilling experience that allows you to share the practice of mindfulness and wellness with people from around the world. It offers the opportunity to connect with diverse communities and cultures, enriching both your teaching and personal growth. Whether you’re leading impromptu beachfront sessions, hosting classes in exotic locations, or collaborating with local studios, teaching yoga on the road, such as in Bali, enables you to adapt and learn from different environments and students. It encourages flexibility, not only in your asanas but also in your teaching style, as you adapt to varying skill levels and preferences. Above all, teaching yoga while traveling is a rewarding way to spread the universal message of balance, peace, and self-care, creating a positive impact wherever your journey takes you, whether it’s during your yoga teacher training in Bali or other adventures worldwide.

Perhaps you love to surf? Or scuba-dive into the depths of the ocean? 

If you are passionate about any kind of activity, why not earn some money from it? If you are a certified diver, for example, you could land a dream job in a picturesque destination such as Hawaii, Australia or Mexico.

If you’re not an expert don’t worry, you can practice an activity for a couple of weeks and help a trained tutor with their classes. If that’s not an option, you could hang out in the office and help make bookings. Whatever takes your fancy, it’s great earning money through something you enjoy!
