February 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 148

If you want to travel for an extended period of time but have figured out that your budget isn't going to last then take a look these handy tips. Take note that you will probably have to look into a working Visa for some of these options.

1. Summer Camp

Summer camps are great. You work for about 8 - 10 weeks and get free accommodation, free food and some pocket money at the end of the summer.

Programs such as CCUSA offer to organise the whole thing for you for a fee of about $400. This money can easily be made back by the pocket money you get at the end of the summer.

2. Teach English

Teaching English abroad is also a great way to earn some extra money. Do a Google search on how to get involved in this. There are many companies available that are able to set up work in countries like Japan.

3. Work at a Ski Resort

While the money usually isn't that great you get fantastic perks while working with a ski resort. Most ski resorts offer a free seasonal lift pass so you can do all the skiing or snowboarding you want. They are usually offer half price discounts at ski resorts close by as well so you can enjoy doing some travelling on your days of to explore the region. Other perks include discounted food and accommodation.

4. Volunteer

There are some great volunteer programs around that usually offer free food and accommodation in exchange for about 4 hours of work, 5 days a weeks. Take a look at the following websites:

5. Online website

Take a look at staring an online travel blog for a little bit of extra cash while travelling. Or you could try your hand at web design.

6. Fruit Picking

Fruit picking usually relies on the season and has contracts for a couple of months at a time. During off-peak season you may be able to find work as a packer instead of a picker. A working visa is required but its a great way to earn a little bit of extra cash.

7. Work in a Hostel

Ask around at the next hostel you stay in and see if they are looking for any new staff. You could even ask to help out at the hostel in exchange for a free room.
