12 Ideas On How To Travel For Free (Almost)In 2022

The masked trips to grocery stores, friend’s houses, and the nearby park just aren’t cutting it anymore. As more of the world eases travel restrictions, many of us consider packing our bags and taking off again.

There are many ways to travel for free with proven ideas that you should know if you want to save some money while exploring the world.

Volunteer On A Farm

You will learn about organic farming and get first-hand experience of working on a farm. In return, you will get free room and board. It’s also a great way to meet locals and form lifelong connections.

Volunteer At A Hostel

If farming isn’t your thing, you can also find volunteer work at hostels in return for free accommodation.

Get A Remote Job

There has never been a better time to travel and get paid by working remotely. The opportunities have exploded since many companies that would not typically offer remote positions listen to what their employees want post-covid.

Teach English

A time-tested way to fund your travel is to teach English overseas. If you are fluent in English, get a TEFL certification to make it easier to land jobs.

Ask For An International Transfer

If you work for a multinational corporation with branches in other cities, ask your company for a transfer or find opportunities for work-related travel. Usually, employers will cover the cost of flights and hotels for an official visit.

Become A Consultant

Working for a management consulting company is another way to have your company fund your travel. Most management consulting firms like Accenture, Deloitte, and McKinsey require domestic and international travel.

Work As An Au Pair

If you have experience working with children and want to live in one place for at least a few months, consider working as an Au Pair or a live-in Nanny.

Leverage Your Skills

Whatever your skills, you can leverage them to make money on the road with sites like Fiverr and TaskRabbit.

Cash In Free Flights Or Hotel Stays

There are tons of credit cards with travel reward options out there that earn you points simply for using your card for your everyday expenses.

Couch Surf

One of the oldest, most trusted ways to travel frugally and meet new people is through Couchsurfing. This site started the original community of travelers who offer up their homes for other travel.
