Great Ways To Make Money For Travelling

While traveling shouldn’t be made about money, it’s no secret that to do so, you need to have some form of expenditure so that you can survive on your travels. You may have read our post ‘I’m too poor to travel’, which tells you why you don’t need mountains of cash to travel, and you don’t -- however, there are limits to how little money you actually need because you need to eat and pay for places to stay. This can become a problem if you’re not earning enough to put money aside so that you can travel, so here are some great ways to make money for traveling.



Sell your stuff
A moderately easy and fun way of making a quick bit of cash is by selling any creations you make on Etsy. So, if you’re skilled knitting or making occasion cards, then consider popping them up on Etsy so that you can make some extra money to put away for your travels.

Alternatively, you could rummage around your home and find belongings that you no longer need or want anymore and sell them online to make some cash too. Every little helps!



Sell your stocks
If you’re a sensible person with your money, then it’s likely that you’ve put some money into stocks for a rainy day. While traveling might not seem like a reason to sell your stocks, it’s all about what you actually want in life rather than keeping your stocks for something else. Plus, if you’re selling covered calls, it’s likely that you will be able to travel for longer and still have money left over at the end!


Get rid of unnecessary bills
Everyone has them. Some sort of bill that you signed yourself up for that you don’t really need like a magazine subscription, or that gym membership. Take a look through your direct debits and standing orders to see if there’s anything that you can eliminate!

Not only will you be helping yourself find a way of saving money for traveling, but you will also be helping yourself financially too!



Work as you travel
Finally, an option that many people choose to do when traveling the world is by working as they travel. It’s easy to get some bar or server work in many places around the world, so if you’re taking an extended amount of time off to travel this is definitely something that you should consider! If you’re lucky enough to be able to work from home with your current job, speak to your boss and see if they are happy for you to do this while you’re traveling!


Try these four ideas so that you can make some extra money for traveling!
