5 Realistic Ways to Travel the World for Almost Free

If you ask most people why they do not travel often, they will tell you it’s because traveling is costly. For beginner travelers, even going on a first trip can be a challenge. However, traveling is not always as expensive as people think. With just a few tricks, you can experience the delights of the world for almost free.

Here are 5 realistic ways to travel the world without feeling a pinch:  

Get a Job Abroad

If the money you are making at your current job is not enough to support your trips around the world, try getting a job overseas. There are endless jobs abroad that can earn you good money while also allowing you to travel the world like hostel work, house sitting, driving, tour guide, cruise ship work among others.

Sign Up as an English Teacher Overseas

Unlike some of the jobs listed above that are often seasonal, many countries around the world are constantly in need of English teachers. In fact, in places like Asia, the employer will even pay for your flight. Thanks to technology, now you can even teach English virtually.

Work in the Travel Industry

Working in the US travel industry can also offer you opportunities to visit many destinations across the world for almost free. As a pilot, flight attendant, cabin crew, travel agent or a manager for a larger hotel, you can see the world at the expense of the company.

Fly for Free

There are a few ways you can get free flights to various parts of the world. One of them is signing up for travel credit cards. The more you use the cards, the more points and other bonuses you will be able to collect. These can be redeemed later for free flights.


World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms is a program whereby you can sign up to work on farms overseas in exchange for free accommodation. You will only need to get to the farm and, the operators will take care of all your expenses until the end of your stay.

While there are other ways to travel the world for almost free, the ones mentioned above are a sure bet that should be at the top of your list.
