Everyone wants to take a month of holiday and explore new countries traveling around the world despite their age, profession and the savings they have in their bank account. While some travelers have loaded pockets and no financial restrictions, others travel on tiny budgets. It is known that traveling is possible with very little money. Therefore, traveling can be not only about spending, but it can also be about earning. However, the question of how to create a location independent income through not only coaching but also passive income streams is still questionable and needs to be discussed. So here are options how both traveling and earning can be done at the same time and I will review the best ideas, how to make money on vacation.
Have you ever considered the option of taking pictures with your smartphone and selling it? It is a perfect option because you will be taking photos on vacation in any case, so why not to take advantage of it. You can become a stock photographer and upload your photos to such pages as ShutterStock or DepositPhotos. Nowadays, the quality of phone cameras is visionary, there are no needs for the professional camera to become a stock photographer. In addition, you can use some apps to sell your photos:
EyeEm — with this app you can just sell photos that you took with your phone. Upload your breath-taking shots to the app and get 50% commission if the photo is sold to leading brands and companies.
Clashot app lets you sell high-quality pictures, so if you have a phone with a high-quality camera just upload your photos to the app and get from 5 to 80$ per picture.
Mobile apps are an easy way to make money from any location if you only have an Internet connection. By using the Internet, as usual, you can make a difference and earn income. You do not even have to do anything other than registering your computer or phone. A great example of passive income apps can be:
Honeygain — a legit app for earning extra income with no effort. It allows you to reach your unused internet’s full potential by making your device a gateway. Data scientists use Honeygain’s platform to connect to the Internet and Honeygain manages all these connections with strict safeguards to protect all these connections. They pay you at a rate of $0.10 / 1 GB of internet. They payout via Paypal (also, they have a coupon code “secret5” for new users to get a $5 bonus).
Smart Panel — another passive income app to gather data about consumer behavior on the Internet. It can be installed on any device from tablet to smartphones and will allow to add up money for every month you keep the app running. The main idea consists of collecting service usage and information about what is done on the Internet, which pages are being visited, which ads are being watched. Gathered data is used for product and service companies, as it can help them improve their business.
When you are on vacation, your home is empty. Whether you live in an apartment on the coast or a flat close to the city center, why not rent it out on sites like Airbnb. With Airbnb, you can easily rent it and make passive income. You simply register to Airbnb community to become a host, upload photos of your apartment, describe its features, set the price and wait for the first guests. Therefore, if you are not on the road trip and your car is left at home, why not to take advantage of it as well? You can easily rent it on:
Turo — when it comes to renting out your personal vehicle, Turo is one of the best-known options — so much so that it is named as the Airbnb for cars. Turo is available in many U.S. cities and selects Canadian provinces.
Getaround car owners make thousands of dollars per year sharing their cars through the platform. You can earn more than $800 a month renting your car through Getaround (of course, it depends on the car you have).
If you have a skill that includes a computer, then you can work around the world by freelancing. The list of jobs is never-ending including graphic design, photography, web development, videography, writing, SEO, social media and etc. Also, it can be something completely ridiculous, for instance writing a specific name on a sign and taking pictures with it in front of the London Eye. Keep in mind that you are traveling and there are milestones of people who wish they could be you.
A great option for freelancing tasks is Fiverr.com website, where you complete small tasks or make projects to help someone out and use your specific skills. It is a freelance program that helps people around the world connect and show off their talents for extra income. Need someone to design a banner for your new social media page? Look for a social media guru on Fiverr. You can choose the starting point of how much you want to spend for the task, see ratings of freelancers, check their sample work and so on. The payment is always fixed, so no need to count that hourly rate. Also, the marketplace is huge, so everyone will find a task, whether it is making a social media post, creating a video or designing a product. Use your free time by the pool in a useful way!
