5 Ways To Travel Full-Time On A Budget


Most people dream of the freedom that comes with full-time travel. The ability to pick up and go whenever you want is a powerful one, but it can also be expensive if you don’t know how to budget for it. Luckily, there are lots of ways to save money while traveling full-time. Here are five tips for keeping your costs down while still enjoying your travels:

Find A Job To Supplement Your Income

One of the best ways to travel full-time on a budget is by finding a job as a traveler. And while this may sound like an oxymoron, there are actually many opportunities out there for those who want them.

In fact, there are some companies that specialize in recruiting employees who wish to work remotely and travel frequently. They’ll help you find jobs in different countries around the world where you can earn money while exploring new places and cultures! If you don’t find anything through these websites (which I highly recommend), then another option is just going straight up asking local businesses if they need any help with anything–maybe they could use some extra hands at their restaurant or bar? The possibilities are endless when it comes down what kind of work will fit into your schedule as well; from bartending all night long until dawn breaks over world-famous beaches on tropical islands all throughout Southeast Asia, cooking delicious meals for travelers passing through town during dinner rush hour every day at 3 PM sharp…and so much more!

Get Your Health Insurance Before You Leave

One of the most important things to do before you leave is get your health insurance in order.

It’s crucial that you have a plan that will cover you abroad and if something were to happen while traveling, such as a car accident or getting sick, it would be disastrous if your insurance company refused coverage because they didn’t think it was necessary or because there was some fine print they didn’t read before signing up.

It’s also good practice not to rely on credit cards for medical expenses; while they may seem like an easy way out of paying cash upfront and having no out-of-pocket costs later down the line (which can often be hundreds or thousands of dollars), some providers will charge interest rates upwards of 20{a6d4e250f4dbd7c38290d51a301669b0b15c2bd58d8474132f85a8137f152abc}!

Save, Save, Save

Now that you’ve decided to take the plunge and start living your dream life on a budget, it’s time to get started saving money. You may have already cut back on all of your expenses, but there are still ways to save even more money.

Here are some tips for how to save in each category:

  • Rental/Mortgage – Look for an apartment that costs less than what you’re currently paying in rent or mortgage payments and move there before relocating full-time. This will help offset some of the costs associated with moving away from home (including transportation). Be sure not to sign any leases longer than one year because those tend not be as flexible as short term lease agreements which allow people more freedom when traveling abroad or switching jobs frequently due to unforeseen circumstances such as family emergencies back home etcetera…

Learn To Cook And Plan Ahead

One of the best ways to save money when traveling is by cooking at home. Cooking your own meals will save you money in two ways: first, it allows you to eat healthier and second, it stops you from eating out all the time! Eating out can be a lot more expensive than cooking at home (especially if you’re ordering delivery or going out for dinner) so this tip is especially helpful if your budget is tight.

Planning ahead can help make sure that nothing gets missed when it comes time for mealtime. If there’s something specific that someone wants in their lunch or dinner–for example, if they have allergies–it’s important not just because it shows thoughtfulness but also because then there won’t be any last-minute trips back into town just so someone can get something else instead of whatever was already planned out at home earlier in the day!

Travel With Other People To Cut Costs

Traveling with other people is one of the best ways to save money on travel. You can split costs, share expenses and save money on flights!

  • Find a travel partner: If you’re not traveling alone, it’s easier to find cheap flights and accommodation as well as sharing activities like meals or tours. You’ll also have someone else to talk with if you get lonely in strange cities or countries where English isn’t spoken widely (or at all).
  • Split costs: When you’re splitting costs with another person(s), it’s important that everyone knows what they’re getting into before they book anything so there aren’t any surprises later on in case something goes wrong (which happens sometimes). This includes things like how much each person pays per night while staying at hostels/hotels; who pays for transportation tickets (trains/buses etc); whether food should be shared equally among everyone involved or if someone wants their own meal every day instead; whether anyone will pay extra money upfront so everyone else doesn’t have worry about carrying cash around while traveling abroad…etcetera ad infinitum!

Full-time travel can be done on a budget if you plan ahead.

Traveling full-time is a big lifestyle change, and while it can be done on a budget, it’s important to plan ahead.

  • Make sure you have a good health insurance plan before you leave. You don’t want to be stuck with huge bills because of an accident or illness while traveling. If your current provider won’t cover all your needs while abroad, consider switching insurance companies now so that they have time to process everything before your trip begins.
  • Save money by finding a job (or two) back home that supplements what you earn from writing about travel full-time


I think that full-time travel is a great way to see the world, but it can be expensive. Planning ahead and saving money are key to making your dream of traveling full-time a reality.
