♥ How to Travel the World for Free: 10 Ways to Save ♥
https://www.couchsurfing.com is a website that connects you to locals who have a free couch or room to stay in. My friend and I stayed in Madrid for 5 days using couchsurfing and it is a great way to see a city through the eyes of a local.
2. Teach English
Ben and I have our TEFL certifications. TEFL stands for Teach English as a Foreign Language and it’s a great way to earn money while traveling! Some schools even pay for your accommodation and flights on top of payment! UCLA has a great class we did and I’ve heard JET is a great program if you want to go to Japan.
Woofing stands for World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms. There are farms and retreats all over the world who need help and will offer you room and sometimes food for labor! It’s not always easy, so choose wisely. We lucked out staying at Mana Retreat Center in NZ and made great friends! Check them out here: https://manaretreat.com/
4. Working Holiday Visas
Not only can you travel for free, but you can make money as well! If you’re a US Citizen and under the age of 30, you can work in Australia and NZ for a year and earn money legally! We did in NZ and it was a blast! You can fund your entire trip, trust us! We did it! For NZ: http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/stream/work/workingholiday/

5. Stay with friends
Do you have close friends living abroad? Go visit them and spend some quality time! Just remember to be a good houseguest!
Au pairing is a live in nanny, so if you work well with kids, it’s the perfect job for you! Accommodation is usually paid for plus you’ll most likely get paid too!! Some families will even take you on holiday!
7. Work for company that allows you to travel
Cruise Lines, Summer Camps, Flight Attendants all get to travel the world for free and get paid. Plus, there are plenty of non-travel related companies that have opportunities to live and work abroad. My friend is currently in London doing Accounting.
8. Trade services
Do you have exceptional skills? Use them as trade for accommodation! Some great skills to trade include photography, videography and travel writing.
9. Peace Corps
If you are a US citizen, the Peace Corps may be a great way to travel the world for free. It is a government funded volunteer program and if you can commit 2 years, this is a great opportunity. Check them out here: http://www.peacecorps.gov/
You can get free accommodation taking care of someone’s house while they are away. There is a small fee (about $20-$30) to use these sites, but that’s for a whole year. Sounds worth it to me! Check out these great resources: https://www.trustedhousesitters.com/us/ https://www.mindmyhouse.com/
