Freelance while you travel

Freelance jobs you can do while travelling

If you’ve ever dreamt about travelling the world, you’ve probably also thought about how to fund it.

Many people think they would have to win the lottery to do it. At a minimum, they would expect to have a lot of savings.

But while savings are always recommended, you don’t need a fortune to travel the world.

Instead, you can freelance while you’re traveling, which would provide you more than enough money to fund your travels.

Though this will take a certain amount of time and effort to set up, it’s completely within your reach.

If you’re wondering what kind of freelance jobs you could do, here are a few roles to consider.


Copywriting is one of the most common freelance jobs on the market.

It’s primarily driven by low barriers to entry and high demand for skilled copywriters. So, if you’re adept enough with a keyboard and a dictionary, then you can carve out a great career.

If you’re looking for a freelance job that offers different things to work on, this is one of the better options.

With copywriting, you can work across different industries, so it’s possible to create content solely on topics that interest you.

With the number of other copywriters out there though, you’ll need to make sure that you stand out from the crowd.

Legal translation services

While you might not immediately think about legal translation services, it’s something that many firms need.

These are typically international firms or smaller companies expanding into new markets. Most of these outsource their translation, as it’s often only needed during specific periods.

However, with the volume of potential clients that you can find, you’ll have more than enough work on your hands.

Legal translation can be difficult to break into, but it can be more rewarding than anticipated. And if you don’t like or understand law principles, then you could try medical translations, among others.

Graphic designer

Companies constantly have to advertise themselves, which means that they always need marketing materials and somebody will have to design them.

Though larger companies have in-house teams to do this, most smaller companies won’t have the budget for it.

They subsequently opt for freelancers, as this will be a more financially beneficial option for them.

That’s where you come in. All you need is a decent amount of creativity and be technologically adept to start on this path.

Like many other freelance jobs, you’ll need to pick up a few things to become a graphic designer. But most of these will be software, so you won’t have to carry them with you when travelling.

Wrapping up

Travelling the world might seem like a fantastical dream.

But if you put in the work and plan things right, it could be much more achievable than you think.

While you have to put in the time and effort to develop skills and obtain clients, it’s well worth it.

After all, who wouldn’t want to work from a beach?
