Nov 16, 2015 —  Traveling the world is an exciting adventure that can be filled with new and memorable experiences, expanded horizons, and self-discovery. However, unless you have extremely deep pockets it can also become an expensive endeavor.

Many people try to save up money and then splurge on a big trip or stretch on a budget to make a trip last a little longer…ultimately leaving the bank account drained until they can save and do it all again.

However, given our internet economy there are a multitude of ways to continually generate some extra cash during your travels so you won’t be broke when you return home. Here are some ideas to help keep your bank account afloat:

Freelance Gigs
If you can write, code, fill out a web form, take a survey, post on social media, or do simple data entry, there are tons of online freelance job opportunities out in the world. Check out sites like Upwork or even Craigslist for tons of opportunities. You might even make some new friends in the process.

Online Gambling
They say “it takes money to make money” and if you can pony up some extra cash you can try your hand at any casino game you could possibly think of…all from your mobile phone or laptop. Online casinos have something for everyone these days - you can play casino games online with great bonuses, wager on sports, play bingo, and even wager on celebrity events or award shows.

Daily Fantasy Sports
Similar to the gambling theme (although up for much debate whether it’s actually “gambling”) is daily fantasy sports. With the rise of hugely popular sites like Draft Kings and Fan Duel you can play in a fantasy sports league every single day of the year – and win money while you’re doing it. With a little bit of research and passion for the right sports you can easily earn some extra cash – and make a visit to any sports bar that much more exciting.

Busking
This one only works if you actually have some talent. Musicians, singers, and street performers throughout the world can always be seen on streets, subways, parks, and major public squares spreading their talent and bringing smiles to faces in the crowd. If you have some skills why not spread some joy and earn some extra pocket change.

Teach English
This requires a little more advance planning but English teachers are needed in every non-native English speaking country…and it usually requires very little formal training. Do some research on “Teach English Abroad” programs and you’re sure to find a number of opportunities. With a small amount of work each day and lodging sometimes included, teaching English can help defray the costs of a trip abroad.

With a little bit of effort and some creativity you can easily find you can easily find ways to earn some extra money during your travels. How you choose to spend it is then up to you.
