Traveling for Free! (Or at least for cheap)
You may be familiar with the quote, “Traveling is the only thing you can buy, that will make you richer.” Chances are you agree. Unfortunately, despite the cultural enrichment and life experience that comes with travel, you have to pay to get where you want to be.
Traveling for free could be achieved for the prepared, the efficient, and the wise. For those looking for a free place to stay, if you have your own property you could use a website such as HomeExchange.com. This site basically acts as a home-swapping service. You can post pictures of your home and where you are located. The site will match you with people looking to visit your city and voila! All you have to do is fork over the air fare.
You also have the option of putting your language skills to use. Fluent in English? Offer your knowledge in exchange for room and board in another country. You don’t have to pay to stay there and will be able to interact with locals, students and even business professionals looking to improve their English skills. Interested in applying? You can do so through Diverbo.
Or look to someone like Brian Kelly, also known as The Points Guy. The sight has over 5,000 articles which give tips and advice in regards to which credit cards offer the most travel points and which loyalty and dining programs to participate in.
Looking at a road trip? Look at Transfercarus.com . This site serves to get rental cars back to where they need to go. You get transportation for as low as 5$ and the car gets where it needs to go, what a bargain!
