Travel For Free: 9 Ways To Take A Free Vacation

Travel For Free

No money? No problem! Traveling for free may sound too good to be true, but: there are many ways and it is often even easier than you think. Here I show you 9 interesting ways to go on vacation for free.

However, all of the options listed here require a certain level of communication skills. Before your adventure, you should therefore possibly hone your language skills and consider an online language course to get along well on site!

1) Hitchhiking

One of the most classic backpacker means of transport has gone out of fashion in the days of low-cost airlines. It’s so easy: thumbs out, find nice drivers, and get to your destination for free!

Works in many countries, but you should find out about safety and customs beforehand – in some countries, it is too dangerous or even forbidden. In the picture, I’m traveling in South America, on the Carretera Austral in Chile.

2) Sail Along

Sailing across the seas for nothing? It works… but only if you lend a hand. Good Timo hitchhiked from Gibraltar to Brazil last year and experienced a lot.

Sailing experience or a certain basic knowledge and of course the will to help in difficult situations are basic requirements, and you should also be good at “being able to work with people” – after all, you sometimes spend weeks at sea together.

3)Travel with Sugar Daddy/Momma

One of the appealing things about having a sugar daddy at various sugar daddy websites is that hopefully, he is regularly taking you to amazing locations around the world. If he is very wealthy, traveling with him is a given as a sugar baby but it might be worrying especially if this lifestyle is something that is brand new to you. Here you can find some how to find sugar daddy tips that should enormously help you out when traveling with your sugar daddy.

What’s more, when you are traveling with your sugar daddy, you don’t need to worry about your budget, which is the best thing that ever happens to a sugar baby. In this case, sugar babies can only focus on themselves.

4) Couchsurfing

I’ve been ‘hosting’ and ‘surfing’ for almost 10 years now and especially appreciate the great community. However, this is about more than just a free place to sleep: cultural exchange, sharing travel adventures and experiences is in the foreground.

No matter which platform you use for this: you should be open-minded, have a good knowledge of English and initially maybe host guests yourself.

5) House sitting

Ah! Living in a villa in Spain, sipping cocktails all day and swimming in the pool every now and then and all at the expense of others?

Well…it’s not that simple here either. In fact, there are some homeowners who are willing to let someone else take care of their property when they travel – however, they should not be idle and very reliable. There are now many online platforms on which you can get in touch with homeowners who are looking for a home.

6) Home Exchange

If you’re a homeowner yourself, wouldn’t it be great to meet up with like-minded people in sunny Italy or Spain for a home exchange? It sounds weird, but a lot of people are doing it now.

A good option for the annual holiday and you really live like a local on-site – the basic requirement is, of course, that you build up a good relationship of trust with the exchange partner beforehand. Ideal for families!

7) Au pair

Young girls, in particular, may feel addressed here, but should not misjudge this as a pure holiday: there is food, accommodation and pocket money to support the host family.

Being an au pair comes with a lot of responsibility: you take care of the children and often also the household chores. In addition to resilience, special insurance is essential!

8) Volunteering

Whether as a voluntary social year or for other reasons – this way you can do good and in return, you often get a place to sleep plus possibly food.

Volunteering can be a great experience that you can learn a lot from, especially as it allows you to think outside the box and have a cultural experience that will shape you.

9) Work on Organic Farms

The 5 letters stand for “World-Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms” – an organization that places volunteers with organic farms.

For board and lodging, you can lend a hand on farms in 100 countries and gain experience in organic farming and horticulture as well as experience abroad.

10) Online Contests

Are you creative and talented? Then you should consider this possibility – again and again, there are destinations or brands that call for participation in competitions in which exactly these requirements are required! The most well-known example is Australia – here, applications for “Best Job in the World” were called.
