Living life on a limited budget, especially when travelling, can be challenging. Making money on the go is a great idea but there are lots of ways that you can get things for free while you travel. With a bit of careful planning, you can find inventive ways of getting by on next to no money. We’ve put this list together with some great tips on how to do this.
Accommodation can be the most expensive thing about travelling. Everyone wants to find somewhere decent to stay that doesn’t break the bank. Luckily, we have some solutions to this!
People are always looking for someone to house-sit for them and this can vary from a couple of weeks while the owner is on holiday to a couple of weeks while the owner is on an extended trip or a sabbatical.
There are also lots of employment opportunities that offer free accommodation. The most common are hotels or holiday camps. Earn some money and bed to sleep in at the same time!
Jobs that require you to travel are a great option to see the world without using a staggering budget!
While there are lots of opportunities you could pursue, cruise ships are a great way to travel to multiple countries, while making money and having your accommodation sorted.
You could also aim for a job delivering cars across parts of a country. It sounds simple but it’s a fantastic way to see a country while getting paid for it!
If you are looking to party for free, it’s not actually as hard as you might have thought! The best way is to organise an event that has a corporate sponsor who will foot the bill in the name of promotion.
You will need to ensure that they get their money’s worth and that their brand, logo or message is plastered all over the event.
Think about the different things you usually need for a party and consider how you could use these to promote your sponsor. For example, you can easily and cheaply get items such as branded plastic cups made up that’ll keep the drinks flowing and keep your sponsor happy!
Going out for dinner is one of life’s joys, especially when you’re travelling. You get to try so many new things and I think we all love to do it when we can. However, you can get free food in a variety of ways. Similarly to travel and accommodation, you can search for jobs that include your meals. There are even options of becoming a food critic, if that’s something you’re interested in.
Okay, I’ll admit it, this one can be a little hit or miss. Not everything you find online for free is actually worth having! If you take the time to search though, there are a few little nuggets that will make it all worthwhile. Just make sure you’re discerning – don’t take junk just because it’s free!
