Teaching English

Teaching English is a great option for almost anyone who wants to travel while making money and working. Many countries need English teachers, with some countries having specific plans for citizens having a good level of English by a certain year, making English a hotly sought after skill that employers want. If you’re a student or on a gap year, teaching English is a great way to add experience to your CV and make new friends along the way. Work place ranges from online classroom settings to teaching children in small rickety shacks in backwater villages – it just all depends what you’re looking for.


Freelancing is one of the broadest and most common ways that travellers make money on the road. If you have any kind of marketable skill, it can be turned into a potential freelancing career. Many people on the road use popular freelance sites like Upwork, Fiverr, People Per Hour or Elance to find work and get paid for using a skill they possess wisely. If you get the right kinds of clients, you can really create a stable and enjoyable career out of freelancing of any kind.

Trading Stocks

It may sound risky, but the way a lot of people make money on the road is by trading stocks. If done correctly with the right kind of stocks, this can be a lucrative way to  make a couple hundred dollars a week which will more than cover your costs when it comes to travelling with accommodation and food, depending where you’re traveling to. Not comfortable trading stocks, or don’t know how? No worries – there are tons of resources online that can walk you through the process so you can start trading for real money.

So whether you’re looking for a long term money-making option to lengthen your travels or you want an actual career you can be proud of with the option to travel, hopefully your interest will be piqued by some of these really cool options for making money while travelling.
