Traveling tends to be a wonderfully rewarding experience, only it can be a real strain on your bank balance. Fortunately, the digital age provides plenty of opportunities for making money online.

Here are some top tips for jobs you can do that will mean you can work while traveling the world.


Fiverr is a freelancing site where you can pretty much sell any service. Whether you’re a marketing whiz or have an exceptional talent for drawing people as woodland fairies, there’s someone out there that is willing to pay for your niche services. And Fiverr will connect you.


If you have a talent for writing, Upwork offers gigs to content writers and markets. There are also jobs available for programmers and illustrators, but it is primarily a platform for freelance writers.


Teaching is a great way to earn a bit of extra cash and it’s rewarding too. In the age of Skype, it’s never been easier to set up a lesson from abroad. If you don’t have the qualifications then that’s no problem, there are plenty of people who will pay for lessons from a native English speaking.


If you have musical talent, why not have a go at busking? Research the country’s laws and find out where you can busk without a license. Even if you make no money, it’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.


Alternatively, you can always give up on the money cycle altogether. Instead of trying to earn cash, why not volunteer in exchange for a free stay? Workaway is a wonderful option for this.
