Want to Get Paid to Travel?

October 05 2015

If you love to travel, getting a job can sometimes be, well, limiting. After all, you can’t exactly take off at a moment’s notice to travel the globe. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have the best of both worlds- traveling the world while also making money.

That is why we’ve put together these travel-friendly jobs:


What language do you speak? Want to teach others to speak it? If so, go forth and live the life you’ve dreamed. Going abroad to become an English teacher is a pretty common job. All you need is a certificate saying you are qualified to teach English as a foreign language. It’s as easy as that. You can even take the course in the comforts of your own bed.

Travel Guide

One of the more obvious ways to spend your work days traveling is to become a travel guide yourself. Go on a cycling tour through France. Visit museums. Talk to tourists and locals alike. Learn about history. Absorb the culture. Experience what it means to discover people and places. Oh, and get paid to do it.

Diving Instructor

If you love the ocean, you may want to consider becoming a diving instructor. Spend your days in the sun and sand and tropical blue waters, living life to its fullest. The Asia pacific area is where most opportunity is in this area, so if you love the water and adventure- this could be your dream job.


Nurses are awesome. Traveling nurses? Just as awesome, but meant for those who love their profession, but equally love to travel and enjoy a change of scenery. Stay stateside taking temp jobs in different areas. Go abroad and do the same. Help others. Travel. Get paid.

Stage Hand

If you love music and think of yourself as a roadie, pay day or not, consider helping out (paid, of course) as a hired hand. There’s lighting, instrument care, and more. Honestly, there’s a lot to be done each day on each stop to make sure things go as planned. Why be a roadie for free when you can be a roadie and get paid.

All five of these are a few of many awesome jobs available if you think outside of the box. If you telecommute, you might even consider being a digital nomad of sorts. Travel, work as usual, it’s all in a day’s work.
