Making money while you travel to live self-sufficiently abroad

Comments (0) Lifestyle


Travelling is at the top of many people’s bucket list. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend an extended amount of time somewhere tropical? After a year of little-to-no international travel, many of us wanted to hop on the next available flight available following the easing of restrictions.

Whilst going on short holidays just requires some saving, if you opt to go travelling for extended periods of time, then you will need to find a way of financing your trip.

If you want to live out your dream of travelling, then read on to find out how you can make money and become self-sufficient abroad.

  1. Get a job abroad

A seemingly obvious one to kick things off, but if you’re serious about living abroad then you may need to seek out employment.

You can do a quick Google search for fruit picking jobs, bar work or otherwise to find a way to make money abroad.

Sites like Indeed are great for job searching.  

2. Remote working

Following the Covid-19 pandemic, home working has doubled.

If you’re one of the lucky ones that can work remotely, you can still continue to work abroad. By taking a laptop and phone with you on your travels, you can still earn your monthly paycheck whilst experiencing new cultures.

If your current job doesn’t allow this, you may wish to look into vacancies at companies that do allow remote working, such as digital companies for example.

3. Trading

If you’re considering moving abroad, now could be the perfect time to take up trading. By using programs like Mt4, you can analyse financial markets and profit from your forex trading to fund your travelling.

4. Become self-employed

If you are (or are planning to become) self-employed, then you can dictate how you work. This includes were you work! If you’re serious about travel, then consider setting up your own business.

This could be doing anything – the world is your oyster as long as you can put together a sensible business plan.

5. Freelancing

Similar to the above, another great way to make money is by freelancing. If you have an in-demand skill, use this to your advantage.

Whether it’s content writing, SEO consultancy or freelancing trades work – if you have a valuable skill, you can use it to fund your travels.

If you don’t know where to start, sites such as Upwork and Fiverr offer plenty of job opportunities for freelancers.

The bottom line

Although upping sticks and moving somewhere abroad may seem like a distant dream, the reality is that you can enjoy tropical climates if you are able to become self-sufficient financially.

Whether you choose to trade Forex, take on freelance work or opt for traditional fruit picking – you too can become self-sufficient and enjoy the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of with a little bit of creative thinking.
