Traveling and no money? Don’t panic and try to make them. How? Here are 21 ways to do that! May be one or two of them will bring success to you
1. Entertain the Crowd
If you have any talent, and even if not, it is possible to earn by starting to sing, playing an instrument, reciting poetry, dancing hip-hop, showing a pantomime to passers-by on the street. Right, perhaps, you have to deal with competitors or with the police: Make sure that you’re not someone else’s place and do not break local rules. Or learn to run fast.
2. Get a job in a bookstore
If you want an intellectual work – go to the bookstore. But do not forget that for employment in a foreign country you may be required to have a work permit. Therefore, take advantage of alternative: work for berth and meals.
3. Learn to play online poker
Some travelers are financing their trips, earning money on the network. Only do not risk large sums, control the counting so you don’t lose a lot of money.
4. Do massage
Your relatives have repeatedly asked you to massage them and admired your hands? It’s time to gain on this by launching a freelance career as a masseur. You can find clients on the beach and other places where people relax and rest. Agree about cooperation with an inexpensive spa center, buy some aromatic oils and start to work. But remember: all your actions are illegal abroad without a working visa.
5. Recollect everything you learned
Can draw henna designs on hands, cut, weave braids, or make temporary tattoos? Offer your services to others!
6. Tell fortunes with cards
Take on travel a pack of Tarot or any other cards. A little imagination, the absolute self-confidence – and money are in your pocket. Of course, you shouldn’t take it seriously; suggest for a fun to tell fortunes to the bar visitors or people on the beach. But who knows, perhaps, your intuition will help to tell the future correctly.
7. The handicraftsman
You know how to make baskets weaving beaded adornment, knit, or draw pictures? Devote a few evening hours to your hobby and then sell your creations.
8. The peasant for an hour
Agricultural work is the easiest and fastest way to earn. Gathering fruits and vegetables long since attracted hippies, idealists and masochists. For your hard work, you can get not only some money, but also an invaluable reward like a rest on the nature and interesting acquaintances.
9. What does it cost to build a house?
The work on construction is a little less pleasant, but more paid. In return you will not only learn something, but also get a slim figure and steel muscles.
10. Career in a hotel
In some guest houses and small hotels you can agree on free accommodation and some earnings in exchange for cleaning the rooms. The work is not the most pleasant, but will bring money and help make new friends.
11. Competitor of the dishwasher
Cafés and restaurants often require people for subsidiary works in the kitchen. By the way, some well-known chefs, who are nowadays generally recognized, have started their career this way.
12. A role of guinea pig
If you do not usually worry about products’ expiry dates and your health in general, you can for a good compensation sacrifice yourself to the science and participate in drugs tests or other researches.
13. Drive uber!
Yeap that will bring some fast cash, but before check the uber car requirements
14. Sell your blood
Donation is one more way to earn. However, you can’t donate blood often, and not everybody can do it – there are many contraindications.
15. Become a model
You can, staring out the window, stand motionless for several hours? Why not get paid for it? The newspapers often advertise sitters looking for painters or models for photographers.
16. Act in film
For almost any movie, whether it is a picture of an unknown student or the famous Hollywood director, extras are required. Probably, you will sit in a restaurant next to Tom Cruise, give a light to Scarlett Johansson or admire from afar Angelina Jolie; and you will earn money. Besides, you will have what to boast friends.
17. Help nature
In civilized countries, people care about the ecology and reasonably concern to the waste recycling. That is why they are ready to pay for empty bottles, waste paper and other raw materials. Look in the dormitories’ dustbins – a lot of money is buried there. The work is not the cleanest, but in extreme cases, will not allow dying from hunger.
Often temporary workers are needed during sporting events. At one place a ‘boy’ is needed, collecting golf balls, in the other – rooms cleaner after the match.
19. Family/House assistant
Stroll through the private sector and offer your services: perhaps in one yard it is required to cut bushes, in the other – to repair a bicycle.

Of course, the chief editor of National Geographic has not yet knocked your door, but this does not mean that you can’t try to sell your photos and travel notes to less eminent editions. Try to start with small – perhaps a famous writer sleeps inside you? Videos of rare sights and interesting events are not in less demand. And if you are lucky to witness a rare natural phenomenon or disaster, you can count on a considerable fee.
