How to make money and reduce costs while Traveling

Traveling is fun, liberating, opened his eyes and life changing. It is also expensive. Unless you saved for years have stopped, or are lucky enough to be well / has a well paid job, most people who want to travel the long term have to find ways to make money and reduce costs along the way. Here are some ways to do this ...

Working holiday visas

If you are between 18 and 30 years, get a working holiday visa is a good way to travel and make money at the same time. I got a backpack, while in Australia. It allows you to work for six months at a time over a year.

Travel companies can meet the visas for you and then just a case of application of the tax code, when you arrive, you can do online and have a couple of weeks to arrive. Also need to set an Australian bank account, again, is very easy to do on arrival.

If you want to stay longer in Oz, there is also the option of completing three months of agricultural work during this first year to qualify to stay for the second consecutive year.

Australia, New Zealand and Canada are among countries where obtaining a working holiday visa is an easy and convenient option.


Surprisingly, this has nothing to do with dogs! WWOOF stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. This is an increasingly popular option for those wanting to learn new skills, experience different cultures and basically just help while not having to worry about incurring huge costs of living.

Organic farms worldwide invite people to come and stay with them for free, in exchange for some hours every day. Some hosts even offer meals. For information on WWOOF organizations in different countries.


It's amazing how many volunteer projects out there seem to cost more than luxury rides for some five-star resort. But there are many options for volunteering their time to allow for free, while some or all living expenses covered. If you are between 18 and 30 and live within the European Union, the European Voluntary Service volunteers sponsors a variety of projects - from working with young people to conservation projects. Accommodation costs and expenses are covered.

There are some projects large turtle conservation in Greece, as the Group Katelios in Kefalonia and Archelon, the Sea Turtle Protection Society of Greece.

Teaching English

Before I knew otherwise, I had always assumed that the purpose of teaching English in another country that would have to speak the native language as well. However, schools in countries like China and Japan take native English speakers to help with language classes - and need not speak Mandarin or Japanese.

No teaching experience is necessary either, but that level of higher education seems to be a mandatory condition. There are courses you can take which are specifically provided for education abroad, such as TEFL. Another option is Japan JET Program, which recruits graduates every year to assume duties as an assistant at schools across the country.

A cooking

Dining out can be very expensive. While it is ideal to discover the local culinary delights, if you're on a limited budget and need to stretch your money as long as possible, eating out every night is usually inaccessible.

Fortunately, many shelters are equipped with kitchen, allowing travelers to cook their own meals. Costs are further reduced if you can get a group of tabs with shopping and take turns cooking.

Obviously, it is more affordable to eat in Southeast Asian countries like Thailand, where meals are ridiculously cheap. But again, there are always cheaper options to eat out in restaurants, wherever you are in the world.
