Do you dream of jetting off on an endless vacation but can't afford it? With some creative thinking and planning, you can find ways to travel for free.

Imagine discovering ancient ruins in Rome or sipping coconuts under palm trees in the Maldives with zero travel costs. Even if this seems too good to be true, there are multiple strategies that you can use so your next getaway doesn't break the bank.

Here are 20 tips to help you travel for free worldwide, or at the very least, for much less than you thought possible.

Start a Travel Blog

Plenty of travel bloggers get to go on a paid trip. If you love to travel and don't mind writing about it, this may be your option. As you build your brand and gain exposure, you may have local tourism offices contact you for a visit in exchange for writing about your experience.

In most cases, your employer will reimburse you for the out-of-pocket expenses you incur during your trip. As with having your own site, as you make a name for yourself, tourism offices will also begin to reach out to you.


Some popular jobs include doctors, nurses, web development, chefs, an au pair, and more. You can often find work through websites or ask around when you arrive in a new country.

Work Abroad

Many countries will pay for you to move and teach their children the English language. While a bachelor's degree is nice, it is not a requirement. The only requirement is usually TEFL certification and a valid passport.

Teach English

Another option for traveling the world is to look for work exchanges. Several websites offer this service, like Worldpackers. It can be a great way to see the world while getting work experience.
