5 Ways To Make Money Traveling in 2018

There are different ways to make money when travelling even if you are local. You can make money both online and offline if you are seriously committed.

Today, we will be looking at a list of Five Ways To Make Money Traveling in 2018


1. Drive for Uber or Lyft.

Another set-your-own-schedule business is driving people around. All you need is a car and some spare time. Just sign up with Uber or Lyft and start driving people around. It can still be a fairly lucrative way to earn money as a side business idea on nights and weekends. But before you dive head first into this side business idea, do your homework and calculate the costs of extra gas, mileage, tires, wear & tear and usage on your vehicle.


2. Moving Service

Do you have a truck? You could sell your services helping other people haul stuff to the dump, or even picking up large items at places like Home Depot. If you have time on the weekends, and are okay lifting heavy boxes and furniture. It’s not easy work, but most people tip the movers as well.


3. Turn your car into a moving billboard

If you don’t mind having a large commercial sign on your car – or having it “wrapped” in ad material, you can earn up to $400 per month with FreeCarMedia.com.


4. Turn your photography skills to cash

If you’ve checked photographers prices lately you know they can be prohibitive. If you’re good at photography, you might be able to photograph a special event or two for at least $100.


5. Become a tour guide

Live in a destination where travelers frequently visit? If there is a particular area of your city you know especially well, you can be hired to give tours. You could be a hiking guide of the trails in your area. Or give tours of local bars, or museums. And it doesn’t have to be long — an hourlong tour might fit perfectly into someone’s vacation schedule.

People will pay a lot of money for a good tour. A local hiking guide in my area charges $135 per person for a 4 hour tour, with a $450 minimum.


The bottom line

If there is something you enjoy doing, you can find a way to make money doing it. If you didn’t see anything on this list that got you excited, that’s ok. There are millions of ways to earn a few extra bucks. Think about things that you find easy, but others find difficult. Then either teach them to do it themselves, or have them pay you to do it for them.
