Traveling can be expensive, but I have a few ways to help fund your vacation while you’re on vacation. After all the sight seeing is done you can allocate however much time you’d like to working a little bit. I should note, most of these require that you drive to your destination as you will need your car.


Rent your room

If you aren’t using your room you might as well rent it out right? Through Airbnb you can rent out your apartment or house while you are traveling the world and having a great time. Sounds like an easy way to help fund your vacations. This is a great option, whether you fly or drive.


Drive people around

You can give people rides to their destinations through Uber and Lyft. This is a great way to make a little side money while traveling, and you can also learn about the area from your customers. Whether Uber or Lyft is higher in popularity will depend on the area.


Grocery shopping/delivery

Shipt is a grocery delivery service. If you sign up to be a Shipt shopper you can grocery shop for other people. This is also a great option if you prefer to be more active because you will be walking around the store instead of sitting in your car the entire time.

Stores partnered with Shipt include:

  • ABC Fine Wine and Spirits
  • Central Market
  • Fry’s
  • Harris Teeter
  • H-E-B
  • Kroger
  • Meijer
  • Publix
  • Western

You can easily check for these stores in the areas you are traveling to by using Google Maps.


Deliver Food

Maybe you’re not a fan of grocery shopping. Through services like Uber Eats and Grubhub you can deliver food. Unlike Shipt, you’re delivering food from restaurants.
