Creative Ways to Make Money as You Travel

If you have caught the travel bug and you want to spend more time travelling, then a regular job might not work for you.

When you have a typical 9-5, you can’t simply jet off whenever you feel like it, no matter how much the hills of Nepal or the beautiful beaches of the Maldives might be calling you. 

However, there are many creative ways of making money while you are travelling, that may be worth your attention, including the following:

Sell photos

If you are able to take a decent photo, why not invest in a good camera, and start selling photos of things you snap when you are travelling. You can sell photos online for royalties, or, if you are able to print them, you could sell snaps to other people who are on vacation too. Taking a course or two in travel photography would help, but if you have an artistic eye, you do not necessarily need to undergo any training at all.

Travel writing

If you love to travel and you can string a decent sentence together, there is no reason why you could not pursue travel writing, whether in a magazine or on your own blog. Your passion and your ability to travel to new ad interesting places are what really matters, so why not give it a try.

RV technician

RV technician jobs are ideal for practically minded people who like to travel. Yes, you will probably need to spend a few years working onsite to gather the skills you need, but once you know how to repair motorhomes and you have plenty of experience, you can definitely make money by repairing people’s RVs as they travel allowing you to do more travelling too.

If you are a great musician or actor or you can do something creative for a crowd, then you could earn enough money to keep you on the ross or in the air, by simply busking in big towns and cities in the locations you are visiting.

Water sports instructor

You will need to get qualified, but it is worth doing if it means you can take groups out for surfing expeditions, snorkeling, jet-skiing, or any other activity on the water. It is so easy to make money at the beach by doing this, and it gives you the opportunity to get out and do things you love even more, for free too.

Passive income

Passive income is income that you earn even when you are sleeping or chilling out on the beach. You need to build passive income up over time by putting in the hard work to develop products you can sell. From writing ebooks to creating your own vlogs, there are so many ways of generating passive income that, if you plan to travel a lot in the future, it is definitely worth looking into.

As you can see, there are lots of creative things you can do to make money while you are on the road, so what are you waiting for?
