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 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 are a native English speaker or know any other languages such as French, Italian or Arabic, why not travel and teach at the same time?If it’s English you want to teach, pick a country such as Thailand or Japan. You will gain valuable skills in teaching whilst experiencing the exciting culture. You can either go freelance and arrange your own classes or go for a teaching position in a college or night-school.
#3 Teach an Activity
Do you love to surf? Or scuba-dive into the depths of the ocean? Is the power of yoga what gets you up in the morning? If you are passionate about any kind of activity, why not earn some money from it? For example if you are a certified diver, 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!
#4 Work on a Yacht
Imagine earning a massive wage whilst getting to travel to beautiful destinations all over the world. That could become a reality if you land a job on a luxury yacht. With the clientele usually consisting of the rich and famous, tips can be into the thousands on top of a pretty cushy wage. The most common jobs on yachts are stewardesses and deckhands which involve basic maintenance of the boat, cleaning, setting up jet skis and banana boats, laundry, housekeeping and waitressing. In return, you’ll earn an enviable salary and get to travel to some of the most beautiful locations in the world. Many boat owners fly privately to the boat’s location using companies like VistaJet, so you may even get to experience a luxury plane too. Plus, you might meet some famous celebrities!
