If you are a person that is yearning to take a trip but you do not think that you can afford to spare the money to take the trip, you should consider looking in to ways of earning money while you are travelling or while you are on holiday. There are many things that you can do to earn money while you are away.
Rent out your home
While you are on holiday, consider giving your room or your home out on rent for a short term to someone who is travelling to your town and looking for accommodation. This will help to bring in some money while you are travelling so that you do not feel the expenditure as much. You can do a similar deal with your car, your laptop or anything else that you will be leaving behind during your trip to help you to earn extra money and you will be surprised to see that you will have many takers.
Document your adventures
Many people do not know that YouTube and Google will usually pay you for views on an original video that you make and therefore if you document your trip and your adventures and upload them to YouTube, you are likely to get paid for views. You should focus on things that other people are unlikely to focus on and also target your videos to the right crowd. One example is that you can do a video blog on dog friendly accommodation in the area you are travelling to by asking questions and interviewing different houses, guest houses and hotel in the area after which you can share your video to dog groups on social media.
You can also do a small video on rail trail accommodation that you can then share with people looking for budget vacation ideas which is sure to get you many views. YouTube will then pay you money for every view that you bring in.
Like this, documenting your adventures can not only be great fun but can help you to bring in money to cover extra money. If you are clever enough, you might even be earning money from your travels but at the beginning, let your focus be to cover the cost of your trip so that you are not spending any of your savings on your trip. If you really get the hang of it, you could even end up being a professional travel blogger which can bring in a lot of money on the long run.
