No Money? You Can Still Travel the World

Everyone dreams of traveling around the world and visiting the most popular places and tourist attractions, but money and limited income always tend to be an obstacle. Well, here's some news for you: you don't have to be extremely rich or have a lot of spending money to travel as much as you want. By using these simple ideas and tips, you can travel as much as you like for cheap prices, or even for free!

Find A Job Overseas

This idea is usually refused by most because the jobs listed below are considered either too hard or they require too much work. Well, keep an open mind because they definitely won't be hard at all. For starters, they don't require a high college degree. In addition, they pay enough for you to fund your travels and also pay for the bills and living expenses. These jobs include, but are not limited to: waiter, bartender, hostel worker, au pair, tour guide and casino worker.

Free Flights

You heard it right and I'll confirm it now: free flights are possible. To find your way through this, sign up for travel credit cards. When you collect miles, you'll be able to fly for free. The thing is that most cards give about 50,000 points upon signing up so you can sign up for an airline card and a few general reward cards, combine the points and be able to travel for many miles-all for free. In fact, it's not only possible to win free miles through this, but you can also win free nights at grand hotels like the Marriott! Just make sure to look properly for the greatest deals and best travel credit cards.


Worried about transportation? A good idea would be to try hitchhiking – it can take you all around the world for free. Just make sure that the country you're visiting is a safe place to do so – Australia, New Zealand and Central America are places where the practice is actually common and it's safe.


If you can't afford hotels or can't find somewhere for your accommodation for low prices, housesitting should come to mind. The idea is that while a family travels or leaves the house temporarily, for whatever reason, they need someone to take care of it and make sure it remains in good condition. That's where YOU come in. They hire you to watch their house for free, and you get somewhere to stay, also for free! There are a few websites to help you find such an opportunity:


Cook Your Own Meals

Eating out can cost a lot of money, can't it? Why needlessly spend money at restaurants when you can spend your hard-earned money on more traveling instead? Instead of going to expensive restaurants for every meal, buy your groceries and make your own food. If you don't have a stable place to stay or if you don't have access to a kitchen, get creative by making simple meals, like sandwiches, which don't require appliances or stoves to prepare.

Sleep in Large Dorms

If you're unable to find any of the previous opportunities or if they simply don't appeal to you, my large hostel dorms suggestion comes next... They are probably the cheapest place you can find to sleep, in any country.

Remember: if you really want to travel and visit as many places as possible, you will have to consider it a priority and save for it. This and using the tips mentioned earlier can get you cheap trips for many destinations around the world.
