How To Make Travelling Long Term Affordable And Even Profitable
Are you wanting to travel long term in a way that is affordable? Wondering if you might even be able to make some money along the way? Here are three ways that you can do exactly this!
Make a budget
If you are determined to travel for longer than just a couple of weeks, we’re impressed. That takes some serious commitment, and a good dose of wanderlust to boot. But plant those feet on the ground for a few seconds. You need to make a budget if your funds are going to see you through to the end. Figure out how much you have to spend, and then figure out what is going to cost you money. You may need to spend on things like transport, accommodation, food and drink. Plus, of course, there will be miscellaneous things along the way, and any activities you do. Knowing how much you have to spend in each of these areas doesn’t have to be restrictive. If anything, it gives you more freedom to know exactly what you have to work with.
Consider your accommodation carefully
After transport, your accommodation is likely to be your next biggest cost. If you want to be able to travel long term, you need to make your accommodation affordable. One option is to use sites like AirBnB. Sometimes you can find far cheaper places to stay than a hotel of the same standard. Another option, of course, is to take your accommodation with you. If you’re happy to rough it, a tent will do. But if you want something a little more civilized, how about a travel trailer. They have all the same convenience benefits of taking your own car, but with a heck of a lot more storage space. Plus you don’t need to worry about booking or affording hotels and hostels on your journey. You’ve got your transport and accommodation both sorted for the entirety of the journey, right there in your own spacious RV.
Make a career out of it
While getting paid for traveling is kinda tough, there are ways that you can see the world without burning a hole in your pocket. The world of blogging has exploded. More and more tourists boards and hotels are providing the biggest and best star with all-expenses paid trips. For something a little more reliable, how about entering the airline business? Sure air hostesses get to travel as part of their job, but don’t forget that so do pilots. So do holiday reps!
Alternatively, if you don’t want to tie yourself to a career and just want a job, do just this. Go traveling but then start working once you’re out there! You can pick up odd jobs here and there if you are planning on moving from one place to another. Or if you plan to settle in one destination, pick up a part-time job there. If you have skills, put them to good use. Near a river and an excellent kayaker- join the local kayaking school. By the beach and love to surf? Get paid for it by teaching surfing one-on-one lessons to tourists.http://www.ladla.net/travel-tips/how-to-make-travelling-long-term-affordable-and-even-profitable/http://i2.wp.com/www.ladla.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/image00.jpg?fit=640%2C407http://i2.wp.com/www.ladla.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/image00.jpg?resize=150%2C150Travel Tipsbudget travelling,profitable travelling,spacious rv,surfing schools,teaching surfing
