Share this post for good karma 😊

Travel doesn’t become an adventure until you leave yourself behind. Wondering how to travel the world for free? This Is How You Can Travel Around The World For Free.

 

Part 1: Volunteering

Volunteering can be a great way to see the world while doing your bit to help. Here are some ideas…

Go Wwoofing!: Get FREE lodging and food in exchange for working on a farm.

Help the UN: UN volunteers are assigned all over the world.

Join The Peace Corps: 2 years of travel opportunities to Asia, South America, and more!

Join VIP: Volunteers for Prosperity need people with professional skills to help in developing countries.

 

Part 2: Who Needs A Hostel?

House Sit: Feed the cat, water the plants, stay in the house for free! Visit www.mindmyhouse.com 

Couch Surf: Find a couch…sleep on it for free! Visit www.couchsurfing.org

House Swap: Swap your house with someone else! Visit www.homexchange.com

Freeload: Find a couch…sleep on it…return the favor! Visit www.globalfreeloaders.com

 

Part 3: Leave Your Comfort Zone

Organize A Group Tour: Good at planning? Why not try your hand at organizing a travel group.

Join A Boat Crew: From handyman to entertainer, there are lots of opportunities to see the world while helping out on a yacht or cruise.

Take A Challenge!: Feeling brave? Then an adventure charity challenge could be for you. You find the sponsors, they will do the rest!

Part 4: Do Short Term Gigs

There are lots of opportunities for short-term working abroad – from moonlighting as an English tutor, to part-time work as an au pair- you can even pick up work as a fruit picker on a wine farm!

With many of these types of short-term positions, you will get free accommodation and food + some nice spending cash to explore the area.

Part 5: Getting Around

Hitchhiking is a great way to get around a country. Just stick your thumb out and wait for a lift from someone going the same way as you. There will be lots of drivers who will be glad of the company for a few miles!

Part 6: How to Fly For  Free?

Collect Air Miles: Use a credit card that offers Air Miles as a reward for spending. Redeem them against flights!

Flights As A Gift: Ask family and friends to club together to get you flights for your birthday/Christmas etc.

Get Bumped!: Airlines generally over-book flights, as they know that not everyone will show up. If you are booked on a flight that is particularly crowded, then volunteer to be ‘bumped’. You will get onto another flight and be given free vouchers to use against future flights.

Work For An Airline: Take a short-term job with an airline a few months before you go traveling, and you will generally get perks… such as access to FREE flights!

Part 7: Just Win It!

Ok, it might be a long shot… but you have got to be in it to win it right?

Sweepstakes, giveaways, prize draws – there are loads of competitions you can enter which give away trips/holidays, so why not enter some and try your luck!

*Just don’t spend any money or it defeats the purpose!
