If you are super lucky then you also get to go travelling with the family on all expenses paid holidays in exchange for looking after the kids.

5. Rent Out Your Properties

When you’re not going to be home, why not make some money off of it? It’s just sitting there, gathering dust and not really doing anything, so it’s a good idea to use it to your advantage. You can rent it out during the times that you are not going to be there, and there are many sites that let you list properties for rent so you won’t have trouble advertising it. You can look at the advice of someone like Kevin Canterbury Redstone Capital Management founder and real estate expert, if you want to know more about why this is a great idea!

You could make quite a lot of money without actually doing anything, so it’s a win-win for everyone involved.

6. Work trade

Okay so this isn’t exactly going to earn you money whilst travelling but it will help cover your costs. In most countries there are lots of work trades you can do, just have a look online. How it works is that you work for free board and food. Work can involve anything from picking apples on a farm, painting a house or building a fence.
