Whether you like to travel or not, there are times when you have no other option. Your friends may ask you to go to your home town for a reunion party, or your boss may ask you to travel overseas for an important business meeting- the situations are endless.

However, did you know you can be productive even when you are on the road? In fact, you can actually make some serious amount of cash if you are willing to work for it a little.

1. Blogging

If you are good at creative writing then you can start your own blog is something you should really consider. While you can always blog when at home, you can also spend your time on it when traveling to make some money on the side.

If your blog is even fairly popular, you can generate a good amount of revenue through banner ads, affiliate marketing, etc. What’s more- your blog will continue to generate revenue in the form of passive income, i.e. even without your active participation.

2. Freelancing

Freelancing has become extremely popular today. In fact, there are a growing number of professionals who work full-time as freelances. However, you don’t have to go that far, as you can work on gigs on an occasional basis, especially when you are traveling.

Whatever skill set you have, you can use it to make a decent amount of money depending on how good you are at it. You could be good at designing logos, developing apps, or even doing some extensive online research- there is literally no dearth of all kinds of assignments/projects out there waiting for you to bag.

4. Online Lessons

Technology has changed a lot of things, and education is one of them. Today, students don’t need to sign up for a course that’s offered in a far end of their town, or even in another city altogether. With the power of the Internet, they can take quality classes from professionals from the comfort of their homes. This is where you come in.

Do you have a gifted voice and love to sing? Or maybe you are good at solving algebra problems. Whatever it’s you are good at, you can teach others who are willing to pay a modest price for the same. However, the best part of this is that you can do it while traveling. All you need is a video calling app such as Skype or you can make a course and use a site like Udemy.

There are various platforms on the Internet where you can find your students. Even craigslist may do the trick.

5. Photography

Most websites and blogs are in a constant need of quality pictures that they can use. So, if you have a high-end camera that you know how to use well, maybe you can capture some good pictures during your travel, at the places you visit and sell them online either directly to the businesses, or the platforms dedicated solely to this.

To Wrap-up:

Traveling doesn’t have to be a passive experience. If you are creative enough, you can come up with a variety of ways to use your travel time to turn it into something productive, something that adds value to your life, or maybe just helps make some money. Just don’t forget anything before you leave. Pack your passport, enough clothing and cash, and perhaps a good travel app like Follow that’s great for road trips.
