Many of us like to travel just about anywhere, but what we have found out is that not only is it fun, but it takes a big damper on our wallet! Did you know that there are ways to travel abroad for free? By following a few tips listed below, you should be able to find some ways to not only save money, but see the world for next to nothing.
Volunteer your services
Did you know that there are organizations out there that you can join, and in exchange you can get free rent, and more? For example, the program called the Caretaker’s Gazette allows you to search for people looking for caretakers. In exchange, you’re going to be able to get everything from free rent and more.
Well, not literally but what you can do here is that you can search out places all across the globe in the United States. They will offer their homes up for free. Why do they do it? It’s a great way to meet people from across the world, as well as give people a great way to connect, and make friends. Many couch surfers hope that you do the same for others. You can find some on the site, CouchSurfing.com.
Join the Peace Corps
What you’re going to find with many of these programs is that you’re going to have to stay, and work for quite some time. With the Peace Corps, you’re going to be able to work in many countries such as Africa, Asia and more. Open to all ages, you can learn a lot about their program at PeaceCorps.gov.
Join the United Nations
Like the Peace Corps, the United Nations volunteer program is always looking for people to join the program. You get everything from your airfare to living expenses. In exchange, you will help people around the world. You can get more information on their site located at UNV.org.
Try out organic farming
Known as WWOOF, the world of organic farms allows you to go to other farms across the country. In exchange of helping people on the farms, you will get everything from living expenses to food and more. You can find more information on WWOOF.org.
Just be simple
While travel is going to cost you some money to an extent, find people that are traveling on Craigslist. Some people will take you to a place in exchange for help unloading items and more. Be creative, and think of ways to travel. If you have to, start biking and camp out as you go. There are so many opportunities that you can take advantage of to save money.
