Are you tired of your corporate job? Most people think that traveling is a luxury for the rich and that you can also travel for vacation a few times a year. And that’s just not the case!
We’ll tell you a secret – you can travel relatively cheaply and make money while on vacation. Here are ways to work remotely while traveling the world.
Earn Money Passively
The first remote work possibility is the easiest one. Passive income is the money you can earn without actively working for it. If you have a phone, a laptop, or both, there are numerous passive income opportunities at your disposal.
Mobile apps like Honeygain are an easy way to earn passive income. With Honeygain, you get paid to share your internet connection. That’s all there’s to it!
You agree to share your internet connection (Wi-Fi or mobile data), and researchers and scientists use your internet bandwidth for many important data-driven projects. And Honeygain rewards you for helping them!
If you download the Honeygain app, create an account, and let the app run, you can make around $40 monthly from anywhere in the world.
Sell Travel Photos
Most of us are mesmerized by beautiful photos of our dream destinations that we see online. The authors of these photos are earning money passively – and we’re inviting you to join them.
Are you good at taking pictures? Do people enjoy looking at the images you’re so eager to share after returning home from a trip?
Grab your phone or your camera and start shooting. After applying conservative editing, upload your photos to sites such as Alarmy, 500px, Shutterstock, or others and earn money.

Become an Online Tutor
Do you get along with children and teenagers? That’s your sign to become an online tutor while you travel! There are many websites where you can earn money online by teaching kids and teens from anywhere in the world.
Many school kids struggle in Math, Physics, Biology, or even English, so put your skills to the test! Becoming a tutor is one of the greatest online businesses, as you’ll have both a consistent demand for knowledge and income.
Tutor.com, Preply, and Classgap are among the many websites to make extra cash for online teaching!
Karma points for helping kids are guaranteed, too!
Try Affiliate Marketing
There’s a good possibility you’ve used Pinterest before for some travel, cooking, or Halloween costume inspiration. It’s a wildly popular social media app that has over 400 million users every month. Nearly half of those people make over 75 thousand dollars annually from Pinterest alone.
In affiliate marketing, you make money by advertising someone else’s product or service. You upload a photo of a product onto your Pinterest with a link to an online store. If someone buys that product using your link, you make money!
The more followers you have and the more product links are “pinned” to your profile, the more money you can earn without putting in much effort. You could even test some products while traveling and then “pin” them to your profile as a recommendation!
Join them from anywhere worldwide and earn passive income with virtually no overhead costs!
Get Paid to Take Surveys
Swagbucks is a portal that rewards its users in points for doing simple tasks online. You can shop online, watch videos, and complete paid surveys from anywhere worldwide. Why not watch a video while waiting for your train or flight or complete a survey while waiting for your dinner?
Swagbucks pays you in Swagbucks points. You can redeem those points for gift cards or PayPal cash. Choose gift cards from over 1,500 retailers, including but not limited to Amazon, PayPal, Tesco, and others.
Don’t Let Your Money Sit Around — Invest It!
Generating passive income through investing in the stock market is an excellent way to make money while you travel the world!
Check in with your local investment experts to learn about investment basics and learn more about relevant investment opportunities, such as dividend investing and real estate investing.
Most importantly, remember to invest only the money you’re not afraid to lose and examine investment opportunities to avoid falling for a scam!
Create Content for Other Businesses
User-generated content (UGC) is growing in popularity because it allows people to make money through their phones. UGC is original content created by a product user for a company.
The company that sells the product then uploads the content to its social media platforms. It includes videos, text, photos, reviews, or even a podcast if you’re into it!
Begin by contacting the brands whose products you enjoy and offer your services, or research any job listings looking for UGC creators. Either way, the business will require a portfolio of your previous work.
That’s why browsing social media for inspiration and creating content for any product you have at home is a good idea.
While traveling is a great way to broaden your horizons, it doesn’t have to tighten your wallet. Choose between affiliate marketing, selling travel pictures, GigWalks, Swagbucks, or Honeygain, and earn some cash while on vacation!
