If you dream of ditching your cubicle for a life of working and traveling the world, you’re not alone—according to MBO partners, the number of digital nomads increased by 49% from 2019 to 2020. Between industries that require travel, the uptick in digital jobs, and more companies than ever making remote work possible for their employees, it’s a great time to search for a travel job.

Whether you have a doctorate degree or are fresh out of high school with little work experience, we’ll share 36 amazing travel jobs that fit practically any set of skills.

The categories that we’ll be covering:

  1. Travel jobs that don’t require experience
  2. Jobs requiring travel and no degree
  3. Remote jobs for globetrotters
  4. High paying jobs requiring travel
  5. Jobs with international travel
  6. Miscellaneous travel jobs

That said, some of the jobs we’ll cover may overlap with other categories. Ready to pack your bags? Let’s begin!

Identifying a Travel Job

The jobs within the categories that we’ll be covering vary in the amount of traveling you’d be doing. You may have heard of the terms digital nomad, backpacker, and ex-pat. It’s common for people to use these words interchangeably when referring to workers abroad. However, as you gear up to find a travel job, let’s define this lingo. That way, you’ll sound savvier when meeting fellow travelers.

Digital Nomad

A digital nomad is someone who is 100% location independent. That means that as long as they have WiFi and a laptop, they can work from anywhere. For many, becoming a digital nomad is the cream of the crop kind of lifestyle—you can work at airports in between flights, at cafés, coworking spaces, or anywhere else you desire. Your time is your own versus the type of job where you have set hours.


We’ve all heard the phrase “backpacking through Europe,” but the truth is you can backpack anywhere. Backpacker jobs involve hands-on ways to earn income that typically don’t require a degree. Examples include musicians, working in agriculture, and selling art on the street. The bottom line here is that if you can’t stand the thought of working on a laptop all day, a backpacker travel job may be a good fit for you.


Expats are people who live and work in another country long-term. You may work for a company in that country or work remotely in another country for a business in your homeland. In either case, most expats obtain residency in the country they’re living in since most countries only allow foreigners to stay up to a few months on a tourist visa.

Career-Based Travel

There’s another important category of jobs—career-oriented jobs. These jobs keep you based in your home country but may involve domestic or international travel. Examples include pilots and travel agents. Often but not always, career-based travel jobs require a college degree.

Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s dive into these amazing jobs that will help you see the world.

Travel jobs that don’t require experience

Whether you’re entering the working world for the first time or are doing a mid-life career change, you might need a travel job that you can learn on the spot. We’ve compiled some great employment options for you here that won’t ask for a resume packed with experience.


Potential income: Varies depending on the country, starting at minimum wage or free accommodation.

If keeping a clean house comes easy to you, being an international housekeeper could fund your travels. It’s unlikely that you’ll get rich doing so, but there are plenty of people willing to hire housekeepers with good work ethics.

Some people might hire you under the table to keep their house clean or to manage the cleaning of their Airbnb rentals. In these cases, you might receive free board in exchange for your time. In other instances, you could housekeep for a hostel or hotel.

Websites like Workaway and Worldpackers are a great starting point for dipping your toes into the international housekeeping world.

Hostel Temporary Employee

Potential income: Free accommodation or potentially an hourly rate around minimum wage.

While a hostel may hire you to be a housekeeper, they offer lots of other opportunities. Jobs you could do include being a receptionist, developing and executing hostel activities, or working at an onsite bar/restaurant.

Hostels don’t usually expect their workers to stick around for long; they most commonly “pay” you by offering an (often shared) room and occasionally board. However, if you sign a longer-term contract, you might get an hourly wage.

Often, the best way to find hostel jobs is by visiting them in person. You can also keep an eye on Hostel Jobs for listings. Do you need a little more experience before signing up for a hostel job? Hostelz illustrates how such work can boost your resume.

Bartending and Waitressing

Potential income: $1,000 – $3,000+ per month, depending on tips.

Bartending and waitressing is not only a great way to keep you financially afloat while traveling, but depending on where you work, you could make out well with tips.

Touristy areas are more likely to hire foreign bartenders and waitresses since they want people who speak English. However, having a grasp of the local language and any other languages will boost your chance of securing a job.

Australia is a popular place to work in the service industry because they offer special work visas for people up to 30 years old. Regardless of where you are in the world, some restaurant owners may pay you under the table if you don’t have a work visa.

Join a Geological Expedition

Potential income: $20+ per hour if a U.S. company hires you.

Taking part in an archaeological or geological undertaking is a great way to work alongside scientists and perform meaningful work. You’ll have the chance to get close to historical places and artifacts, all while getting paid for it.

The competition can be fierce for this line of work, and it’s critical that you’re in good physical condition. You need to be comfortable working in extreme climate conditions and enjoy working as a team and on your own.

Environmental Science is a great resource for understanding the different fields in this line of work. If you’re PADI certified and interested in underwater expeditions, this website might inspire you for the marine geological field.

Jobs Requiring Travel and No Degree

For self-taught people or those who want to skip the hefty loans that often come with a college education, searching for a travel job that doesn’t ask for a degree is key. Thankfully, there are many travel jobs out there that you can turn into a career without a college degree, provided that you have a little experience under your belt.

International Farming

Potential income: Room and board.

With organizations like WWOOF,

people interested in the agriculture industry have more opportunities than ever to experience agro-tourism. In almost all cases, agricultural work abroad offers you room and board in exchange for your labor.

You can sign up for long or short-term stays and projects ranging from beekeeping to pineapple picking. Work is typically abundant, but there’s a catch—you’ll have to pay a small annual fee to use websites such as WWOOF, as do the farmers who list their properties.

Although WWOOF is the dominant agro-tourism platform, you can also take a look at WorkingTraveler and Helpx.


Potential income: $200+ per week, plus room and board.

If you love kids and being in a family environment, working as an au-pair could be a great opportunity for you. Au-pairs live in a family’s residence, taking care of their children and doing housework, as specified in your agreement.

Being an au-pair isn’t for the casual traveler; it can be an around-the-clock kind of job, depending on the children’s ages. However, you’ll receive free room and board in addition to a fixed allowance or salary.

The beauty about being an au-pair is that you can work for a family abroad or work for a family in your home country that travels frequently and would take you with them. While you don’t need a degree, having childcare experience and CPR training is a plus.

Tourism Entertainment

Potential income: Ranges from tips to minimum wage to a large sum, depending on the country and host location.

Entertainers host events harnessing their unique talents in a tourist setting. Examples of tourism entertainment include running shows on cruise ships or

at hotels, hosting fun corporate programs, and entertaining at children’s parties.

You could be a comedian, musician, or any other talent type that brings a smile to people’s faces. The most successful people in the tourism entertainment industry keep their audiences engaged by performing unusual or awe-inspiring acts.

A hotel might offer you a contract to be a tourist entertainer for a set amount of money, or you might work a popular tourist street, garnering tips. You can find entertainment positions at places like Animajobs.

Travel Photographer

Potential income: $50 to $2,000+ per month

Don’t expect to attract many travel photography clients by uploading a few shots from your iPhone on Instagram. However, if you have a high-quality camera and skills under your belt, you can build a freelance travel photography business.

Travel photographers make their living by different means, and they often combine these methods to create multiple sources of income. For example, you could shoot photos on your travel trips and then upload them to places like Adobe Stock and Shutterstock, where you can license and sell them.

Alternatively, with the right networking and marketing, you could attract clients who will pay you to go abroad with them, such as for destination weddings.

Cruise Ship Employee

Potential income: $1,000 – $3,000+, plus room and board.

Cruise companies are always looking to hire talented people. With high pay and the chance to be at a new destination nearly every day, this is among the best jobs for people who want to save as much as possible while seeing as much as possible.

From housekeeping to guest services to entertainment and managers, cruises offer jobs for many different skill levels. Life onboard isn’t all glamorous, though—you’ll be on your feet a lot, privacy is scarce, and you’ll often (but certainly not always) have to work when docked at gorgeous destinations.

There’s no shortage of places to find cruise jobs. Websites like All Things Cruise and All Cruise Jobs are a great place to get you started.

Truck Driver

Potential income: $3,700+ per month.

If you’re the type that prefers to drive to your destination to see the sights along the way instead of flying, then truck driving may be a good fit for you.

While you don’t need a degree to be a truck driver, you will need to get your commercial driver’s license, be at least 21 years old, and keep a clean record. You could stay stateside or head over to Europe, where private trucking companies in the European Union hire truck drivers.

Are you interested in learning more about how truck driving jobs work? Check out the steps to becoming a truck driver and learn about a truck driver’s personal experience.

Remote Jobs for Globetrotters

Of all the jobs that allow you to travel, remote jobs are currently the most fashionable. These jobs are some of the most flexible when it comes to you deciding where you want to work and when you want to leave to explore a new city or country.

Social Media Consultant

Potential income: $30,500 – $69,000+ per year.

Social media is one of the most valuable modern-day resources for companies wanting to market their business. And fortunately for people with a knack for social media, they’re willing to pay good money to manage their accounts for them.

As a social media consultant, being disciplined and consistent is critical to success. You don’t necessarily need to have a degree in this field. Still, you should build a portfolio of your social media successes, even if it means offering to do social media consulting work for free at first.
You can choose to work as a social media freelancer or for a company. Websites like Indeed and Shine are excellent places to look for social media consultant opportunities.


Potential income: $39,000 – $54,000+ per year.

Let’s start with this—bookkeeping and accounting are not the same. Bookkeeping doesn’t require anything more than a high school diploma and excellent organizational tools, although taking a licensing course will increase your chances of getting a job.

Many businesses seek bookkeepers to avoid the high costs of paying an accountant. As a bookkeeper, you’ll use online software to manage a company’s income and expenses and keep basic tax-related paperwork in order.

To be a bookkeeper, you’ll need to be detail-oriented. While you can work for a set company that offers a set salary, many other businesses hire freelance bookkeepers. That way, you have more control over your time and how much you earn.

Teaching English Online

Potential income: $10 – $40 per hour.

There are two kinds of international English teachers—those who teach online and those who teach in person. Teaching English online is a great fit for people who have a 4-year college degree but don’t want to go through the process of getting TEFL certified (although being certified will boost your income).

Other requirements to teach English online include a strong Internet connection, a headset, and a laptop. The students you teach will vary based on the company and your experience. Most new teachers start teaching young children, while more experienced teachers may work with college students or adult professionals.

Most online teaching English jobs are in Asia, so you’ll need to be willing to work early in the mornings or late in the evenings. You can find these jobs at places like VIPKid and Whales English.

Virtual Assistant

Potential income: $3 – $15 per hour.

As a virtual assistant, you’ll help a business perform routine tasks that they want to outsource. Examples include answering emails, scheduling phone calls, putting together presentations, doing light accounting work, etc.

In some cases, a business may want you to have experience in a particular field. But most of the time, a positive attitude and strong work ethic are all you need. The downside to being a virtual assistant is that, depending on the type of work, you might be up against people from lower-income countries applying for jobs, driving the price per hour down. However, some companies value hiring virtual assistants with English as their native tongue.

Upwork, Freelancer, and Flexjobs are all great places to start your virtual assistant job hunt.

IT Job

Potential income: $65,000 – $100,000+ per year.

It’s no secret that IT jobs are careers that bring in a lucrative income while offering the chance to work from anywhere. That said, not all IT jobs are remote.

So, if you’re planning on working for a company, check to make sure they’re okay with you traveling the globe. Otherwise, picking up freelance work on websites like Remote.co and We Work Remotely might be a better fit for you.

Getting a job in IT requires either a degree or a lot of experience in a set field. Specialties like web developers, DevOps engineers, Mobile app developers, and more are all excellent careers for remote work.


Potential income: $500 – $20,000+ per month.

You don’t need to have a blog specialized in the travel industry to travel the globe; you can blog on any topic from anywhere. While blogging can bring in a huge sum of money, you’ll need to practice patience and consistency, for it takes time to build up authority on search engines and a following with your readers.

Websites like WordPress allow you to build a blog for a low fee. You’ll need to choose a domain name and sign up for website hosting, which you can do through companies like Bluehost and HostGator.

Once your blog is up and running, you can run paid advertisements, accept sponsorships, and do affiliate marketing to get income. You can even create and sell your own product.

Digital Content Expert

Potential income: $38,000 – $56,000+ per year.

A digital content creator is a broad term to describe a person who supports a business with their digital marketing and outreach. Examples of digital content you can produce include videos, photos, articles, and movies.

When hiring a digital creator as a freelancer or full-time employee, most companies look for a person with set specialties. Therefore, you should work on harnessing your skills by taking some low-cost courses on websites such as Udemy.

While it might sound like an easy job at first, the most successful digital content creators dedicate many hours to creating pieces of work their clients will be happy with. You can find these jobs on websites like Fiverr, LinkedIn, and SimplyHired.


Potential income: $15 – $30+ per hour.

A transcriptionist is a person who turns a voice recording into a written document. It requires an immense amount of concentration but is an excellent job to do from anywhere in the world.
You don’t need a degree or even previous experience to become a transcriptionist.

However, you will need to have a keen ear for understanding people who mumble or have heavy accents, and quick typing skills. You’ll also need a laptop, headphones, and a foot pedal, a device that lets you control audio playback easily.

Often, transcriptionists work for doctors or lawyers. Therefore, you may need to look up terms that you’re unsure how to spell. That said, you can also get transcription work for YouTube videos and other video content. You can find transcription jobs on websites like GoTranscript and Upwork.

Fitness Instructor

Potential income: $25 – $70+ per hour.

If fitness and coaching run in your blood, becoming an online fitness instructor could help you make a difference in people’s lives while you explore the world. Most online fitness instructors run their own businesses, so having a background in marketing is useful (although certainly not necessary).

You can opt to run group or private fitness lessons, coaching your students as you would if you were in the gym with them. Often, classes that don’t require fancy equipment are best, so specialties like yoga are an excellent option for online lessons.

A lot goes into determining the price to charge for your classes, so this pricing structure guide should help. The PTDC also offers a great resource for people thinking about becoming an online fitness trainer.

High Paying Jobs Requiring Travel

You have bills to pay—we get that. Or, you might even have a family that’s traveling around with you, relying on your income to keep a roof over their head. Luckily, many jobs that require travel pay well. Ready to boost your bank account? Check out the jobs below.

SAP Expert

Potential income: $83,000 – $150,000+ per year.

SAP is an abbreviation for “Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing.” In short, this is a branch of the IT industry where you manage the software that supports business operations and customer relations.

There are two kinds of SAP professions: technical and functional. The article here describes this field better than we ever could. The beauty of SAP work is that companies often need support on a short-term basis.

Therefore, you can work as a remote consultant from your laptop, or you can apply to work on short-term projects at in-person offices throughout the world. We Work Remotely is a great place to kickstart your SAP consultant job search.

Traveling Nurse

Potential income: $35 – $50+ per hour, plus room, board, and other benefits.

If you have a nursing degree, you’re in luck. There’s a huge demand for traveling nurses who sign up for specific projects in a set destination around the world for a predetermined amount of time.

Because of how in-demand traveling nurses are, the contracts often come with phenomenal benefits like housing, continuing education, and competitive salaries. Some nurses even enjoy working for a portion of the year, saving up money, and then taking time off to explore the globe on their own.

One of the most common ways to secure traveling nurse jobs is by applying through a staffing agency. Companies like Fastaff and Aya Healthcare are excellent places to start your search.

VIP Flight Attendant

Potential income: $50,000 – $100,000+ per year.

You can be a regular flight attendant and travel the world, but being a VIP flight attendant takes it to a whole new income level. VIP flight attendants work for private flights and corporate jets.

The job comes with many perks that commercial flight attendants don’t always have access to, such as the possibility to spend longer amounts of time in a set place. However, it has its drawbacks—you’ll need to tend to unique requests and potentially difficult clients that you’ll likely work with on a recurring basis.

You can search for VIP flight attendant jobs on websites like AviationJobs and AviationCV.

VIP Nanny

Potential income: $68,000 – $200,000+ per year.

People may laugh at you when you tell them that you’re a professional nanny, but they won’t laugh once they look up your salary. High-profile parents are willing to pay large sums of money so that experienced nannies can watch their children.

To become a professional nanny, you’ll need to have CPR and First Aid certification along with a resume thick with experience and references. When applying for a VIP nanny position, you’ll have to go through an agency, such as VIPNannies.

The benefits of being a VIP nanny go beyond caring for children and the salary. You’ll often have access to free accommodation, meals, health care, vacation time, and traveling with the family.

Event Coordinator

Potential income: $40,000 – $85,000+ per year.

If you love planning events, being an event coordinator might be a great fit for you to jump into the international travel sphere. As an event coordinator, you can work for a company that will send you to locales throughout the world to run events, or you can run your own business.

Opportunities in the event planning space are immense—you may coordinate trade show events, travel conferences, or weddings. Event coordinators don’t need a degree to make a high salary, although experience in management, marketing, and sales is helpful.

You can start your search for event coordinator jobs on Indeed. Alternatively, if you’re thinking about starting your own business, Eventbrite’s blog will show you how to begin networking and finding clients.

Foreign Service Professional

Potential income: $45,000 – $694,000+ per year.

Foreign service agents work abroad on behalf of the United States. You can choose from several branches of the foreign service, according to your interest and experience. These include consular, economic, management, and political and public diplomacy.

Positions with the foreign service often last for a couple to a few years before you move on to a new country. As you would expect from a government job, you’ll receive excellent benefits, including paid holidays, health insurance, and sick leave. Additionally, they’ll give you a living allowance and retention incentives.

Ready to start your career in the foreign service? The U.S. Department of State is where you can see current job listings.

Luxury Travel Agent

Potential income: $50,000 – $83,000+ per year.

Since you love to travel, starting a career where you plan other people’s trips could be a great option for you. Luxury travel agents design high-end trips to rich—and sometimes famous—clients. That could include setting up getaways to private islands, a yacht expedition around the world, and all-inclusive luxury resorts.

Planning a trip as a luxury travel agent means being able to respond to unique requests. Your clients might want to have a restaurant to themselves or arrive at an archeological site before it opens to the public, and they’ll rely on you to make it happen.

If you work for a travel agent company such as Virtuoso, you may receive a salary. Other travel agencies may offer a base salary or commission-only pay to their travel agents. You can also perform your own luxury travel agent work if you have the right connections.

In-Person English Teacher

Potential income: $600 – $4,000+ per month.

Being an online English teacher is great for maximum travel flexibility but being an in-person English teacher is where the real money is. Asian and Middle Eastern countries are notorious for offering huge perks for qualified teachers who sign contracts with them.

To land one of these teaching jobs, you’ll need a TEFL certification, some experience under your belt, and the ability to commit to contracts that often average one year. In return, you may receive a free roundtrip flight to the host country, free accommodation, and meals in addition to your salary.

There is no shortage of places where you can search for online teaching jobs. Dave’s ESL Café, Tandem, and EF Education First are some great starting points.


Potential income: $92,000 – $117,000+ per year.

Geologists are one of those lesser-known kinds of travel jobs. You’ll need a degree to be a geologist, where you’ll learn to study the Earth’s development and analyze past and current geological trends.

Not all geologist work involves travel, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for government agencies, civil engendering companies, and oil companies who offer travel as part of the job. Being a traveling geologist requires a love for the outdoors, the ability to withstand harsh climates, and the possibility of rural living.

You can find international geology jobs on Indeed. You could even consider becoming a geology professor where you might lead international student geology trips.

Jobs With International Travel

Maybe you’re the type that vacillates between enjoying being a homebody and traveling. In that case, choosing a job that involves part-time international travel could be a great match for you. Below are some great jobs involving travel to get you started.


Potential income: $43,000 – $83,000+ per year.

Auditing may not seem like the type of job that involves travel, but if you work for the right company, you could end up living for weeks or months at a time in different countries.

That said, don’t leave your current job for a career in auditing just yet—you’ll need to devote years to get a degree, and you need to make sure that you can handle the stress that often comes with the job. More often than not, you’ll need to get some experience working at local companies before you land a job that’ll have you traveling abroad.

Once you’ve prepped yourself for the auditing world, you can check out job boards like UNjobs and Audit International for international listings.

Yacht Crew Member

Potential income: $2,000 – $6,000+ per month, plus room and board.

Take one look at yacht job listings, and

you’ll get a feel for how diverse they are. Yacht owners and companies that rent out charter yachts hire a crew that ranges from captains to chief engineers to chefs to masseuses and stewardesses.

As you can imagine, such jobs are competitive. To put your resume ahead of the crowd, consider undergoing STCW training, in addition to any other degrees and qualifications you’ll need for the position you apply for.

Yacht life isn’t for everyone, but those who embark in this field of work will enjoy free room and board along with frequently waking up to new destinations.

Seasonal Employment

Potential income: Usually pays by the hour. Varies dramatically according to the country and job.

Seasonal employment is an umbrella term for anyone who works in a field that revolves around tourists. You can get jobs as tour guides, zip-lining instructors, and hiking expedition team members during the tourist season. However, it can also mean working at a restaurant that only hires during the high tourist season.

Whereas some people might balk at the job inconsistency that seasonal employment offers, others thrive off it. By being a seasonal employee, you can gain lots of references and always be in an area where the weather is ideal.

CoolWorks and Fruit Picking Jobs are great places to research seasonal employment opportunities.

Miscellaneous Travel Jobs

Sometimes, jobs that pay you to travel don’t fit well into the categories we’ve discussed. They are just as great opportunities, though. So, check out the travel jobs below to see if any strike your fancy.


Potential income: $15+ per hour.

The performance industry can be a tough career to get into without connections, but if you have outstanding theater, drama, or dance skills, you stand a chance of being able to secure an international job.

Companies that hire performers include amusement parks, cruise ships, and summer camps. Often, these jobs are seasonal, allowing you to stock up on some cash before making your next move to a different part of the world.

Performers usually don’t receive high pay, but you could consider supplementing your work by doing street performances. You can check out Entertainers Worldwide and StagePool for job listings.

Freelance Travel Writer

Potential income: $0.10 – $1.00 per word.

Combining travel and writing for those who enjoy putting words together is a wonderful way to make part or full-time income abroad.

Options for freelance employment include writing for blogs, newspapers, magazines, and guidebooks. You don’t need a degree to become a freelance writer, although having strong communication and editorial skills are a must. You should also have a portfolio showcasing your work; many people launch their first pieces via a personal blog.

Although your preference may be to write about travel, you’ll have more writing opportunities if you’re open to writing on other topics as well. There are loads of freelance writing opportunities out there—you can start by visiting sites such as Freelance Writing Jobs and Upwork.

Scuba Diving Instructor

Potential income: $18,000 – $36,000 per year.

One of the best ways for nature enthusiasts loving an active lifestyle to earn a living abroad is by becoming a scuba diving instructor. That said, you need to be ready to put in some hard work to get to that point –PADI scuba diving instructors must undergo a minimum of 100 dives and pass numerous safety and technical tests.

Once you become a scuba diving instructor, though, the world literally becomes your oyster. Many scuba diving jobs are seasonal, so diving centers usually expect divers to work for limited periods of time before heading off to a different part of the world.

Being a scuba instructor won’t make you rich, and it involves long days and a lot of physical work. However, it’s a fulfilling type of job, and there are opportunities to specialize within the diving sector.

Skydiving Instructor

Potential income: $46,000 – $62,000+ per year.

Being a skydiving instructor isn’t for everyone, but those who love the adrenaline rush that comes with jumping out of a plane will enjoy great compensation while globetrotting.

Understandably, there are strict conditions you

must meet to become a USPA D License skydiving instructor. The most significant ones include a minimum of 500 skydives over the course of a minimum of three years.

Another factor to consider is the expense. You’ll need to pay for the practice skydives and certification courses, which will cost you thousands of dollars. You can find international skydive jobs on websites like The Wilds.

Day Trading

Potential income: Negative to thousands per day.

It’s a risky business, but stock day trading is how some people make a living while traveling abroad. The advantages of day trading are numerous, including only having to hover around your computer when the stock market is open. That said, the best day traders use their free time when the stock market is closed to study up on companies that they want to invest in.

The biggest downside to day trading is that it’s high-risk; you could lose all your earnings in a day. Additionally, depending on where you’re at in the world, you might have to be up at strange hours if there’s a large time zone difference.

It’s best to find a mentor when you start your day trading endeavor and begin with a small investment. There are many resources out there to help you get started, such as Nerdwallet and Investopedia.

Got Your Suitcase Packed?

As wonderful as travel jobs are, they have their downsides—like having to worry about sand getting stuck in your laptop if you’re working from the beach. Needless to say, we think anyone with the travel bug should give working and traveling a try. With many of the job options we covered, you’ll get to immerse yourself in the culture more than being a regular tourist. You’ll also get to try new food and be the envy of your friends and family back home.
