Picking fruit, flowers, and vegetables on farms is one of the most popular jobs among travelers. It is just fun to pick the fruit in the sun with several travelers. There is a lot of work to be found here in the summer and you will earn good money with this job.

You also really get to know the culture of a country this way. We picked grapes at a South African wine farm and picked tomatoes in Italy, for instance.

Number 4: Street artist

Show your talents on the street, play the guitar, sing a song or do something else that you can do well or enjoy doing. For many people, it is very difficult to step out of their comfort zone and become so vulnerable on the street, but that is not necessary.

People actually enjoy seeing street artists and if you do it in busy places, you can really make good money with it.

Be careful, though, as this is not legal everywhere!

Number 3: Teach

Many schools are open to travelers who want to give language classes to local children. English is, of course, the most requested language, but for other languages, it is certainly worth a try just as well.

Number 2: Vlog or Blog

By uploading travel vlogs on YouTube you can really earn very good money during your vacation. There are YouTubers such as Funforluis who have been traveling for years, covering their expenses from their YouTube income alone.

By writing travel blogs, you can also make good money from the advertising income on your own website or as a guest blogger on someone else’s. You can also earn money with affiliate marketing.

Number 1: Online freelance work

If you have a computer with you, this is by far the best way to make money. You simply provide your skills as a freelancer to companies. You can do this via Upwork, for example. This way you can make yourself available for any job you are good at, such as Graphic designer, translator or video editor, for example. The best thing about this is that you can work wherever and whenever it suits you and you make very flexible hours, therefore. 

So don’t hesitate any longer, book a flight now and go on a trip! ✈️
