Once we’re free to explore the world once again, most nomads won’t want to spend a moment longer at home. Those looking to earn while travelling the world know it’s never too soon to start planning for that next escape. 

Finding ways to fund travel requires a little imaginative thinking. If you’re planning on a globetrotting adventure check out these three great ways to save money and earn while travelling the world.

1. Declutter 

Offloading unnecessary possessions can be a great way to earn a quick buck. It’s also a practical approach to travel preparation –you won’t want it dragging you down. 

And there are plenty of ways to shift unwanted junk with sites like eBay, Depop and Facebook Marketplace. Selling this way may take a little longer than simply sending things to the charity shop or keeping them in your parent’s spare room, but it’s worth the hassle to have a little extra cash in your pocket.

2. Get to work 

It’s a less popular option for tourists who opt for short-term stints abroad or those who don’t stay in one place for too long whilst travelling. 

That said, if you’re looking at spending significant time in a particular place, it’s worth finding a job. 

Full-time work may not appeal if you’re hoping that your travels will allow you to break out of the 9-5 routine, but bear in mind that attitudes to working routines in other nations vary widely than many of us are used to and it can be eye-opening to explore that first-hand. 

Working whilst travelling can also be a great way to meet new people and brush up on your second language. 

3. Take your trade with you 

Even if your current job isn’t something you can take on the road, chances are you have saleable skills. This can bring in a bit of extra cash and help you earn while travelling. 

If you have a creative talent, it can be easy to capitalise on the tourist trade. Think busking in Galway or making street art in France. There are plenty of other freelance opportunities too – travel publications are often seeking writers for reviews and articles. Whilst these might not bring in a full wage, they can certainly be used to bump up your income. 

If you’re looking to convert your skills into a full-time living, whether at home or on the road, it’s worth consulting an agency like Maratopia Digital Marketing. They can help you establish an online presence that cements your reputation and transcends borders. This can make it easier to find work wherever you are in the world. 

We hope that your next adventure comes soon, safely and with all the excitement you could dream of!
