How You Can Afford to Travel Non-Stop + Job Ideas & Helpful Tips
How We Work Online: https://youtu.be/Jz2-LjjNpME
This video is all about how to travel full-time, and long-term with tons of tips for finding cheap and free accommodation, keeping a daily budget, and earning money as you travel.
The first thing we suggest is looking up the cost of living in some of your favourite destinations. You can stretch your dollar by traveling to countries with a cheaper cost of living, or with a weaker currency than your own.
A few websites to help you with this research are:
– Numbeo: https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/
– Nomad List: https://nomadlist.com/
– Currency Exchange: https://xe.com/
Your next step is to reduce your expenses. One of the most costly parts of travel, aside from getting to your destination, is accommodation. Here are some ideas for finding work exchange opportunities (volunteer in exchange for free room and board), and free/cheap places to stay.

– House Sitting: we made a video with our favourite house sitting sites here: https://youtu.be/OLM5IakKCYk
– Home Exchange: https://www.homeexchange.com/en/
– Couchsurfing: https://www.couchsurfing.com/

Working Holiday Visas are another great option to consider if you want to earn money (not just volunteer) when you travel. They’re typically only available to people under 30 (sometimes 35). Check the application guidelines for the country you want to visit to learn more!
If you’re too old to apply for a working holiday visa, you might consider finding online work, or becoming self-employed.
