13 Jobs that Require Travel And Pay Well

by | Making Money, Travel

I started Freedomholic because I love freedom and traveling. (I mean, who doesn’t?!)

The open road calls to you like the ocean calls to Moana. Or, perhaps your passport calls to you. Whatever form your obsession with travel fixates on, I get the feeling. If you want to prioritize travel but still make sure that you are making some money, why not consider the idea of only getting jobs that allow you to travel?

Imagine seeing foreign sights, experiencing diverse cultures, eating different cuisines, and enjoying travels, all sponsored by your job – which pays you well. Wouldn’t that just be great? I know! This is why I’ve helped you get a list of jobs that require travel and pay you handsomely for it. These jobs require travel so that you don’t have to choose — you get both!

1. Travel Blogger/Writer

If writing and starting a blog are your ideas of fun, you’ll want to consider the idea of becoming a travel blogger/writer. In this role, you could earn anywhere up to $2,000 a month and your focus would be blogging your experience in each town/city and country that you visit. Readers would come to you for the source of travel-related questions and information.

A blog is one of the types of websites that make money. And it’s almost zero cost! There are many travel bloggers who are proud owners of popular personal blogs!

Travel is not exactly one of the best industries to start a business in 2020 but is a great example that illustrates the advantages of market segmenting, as you will gain passionate followers who are excited about travel.

You can even earn passive income on your blog by making money with affiliate marketing.

2. Travel Videographer/YouTube Vlogger

This is similar to the above option, but this uses the medium of video logs — or, vlogs for short — in which travelers focus on shooting footage for each venue and editing it together to create a video essay. You can also look at this in the form of shooting stock footage videos or photos, too, if you want to dabble in both. This could earn you up to $20,000 a month, which is pretty incredible when you think about it!

3. Professional Consultant

If you’ve got skills as a consultant in a specific niche, you can become the expert that companies fly in to help train and share what you know. The rate of pay for this varies widely, but it often includes the tickets for travel as well as accommodations, so that’s pretty great!

An example of a professional consultant is one who teaches companies how to start a digital marketing agency. Famous consultants like Gary Vaynerchuk and Neil Patel command a premium for speaking to audiences around the world.

Consultants usually start off by becoming a freelancer in their chosen field (see list of niche examples) and soon gain sufficient expertise to be a consultant.

Here, you are the face of entertainment and hospitality on a cruise ship. You get to attend all social functions – as a job, and you are paid for it. However, since it is a very competitive post, most cruise ship directors make their way up the ladder from entertainment staff positions.

Love the thought of touring people, but want to focus everywhere? People are always looking for traveling tour guides, earning as much as $10,000 per month that will help give tours in foreign cities (to them) for those who are also traveling there. This is great especially with looking at language crossover training, too.

7. Luxury Travel Advisor

This is a travel job built and sustained by your ability to network with both people and businesses, especially hotels, tourist agencies, and locals, to make your clients have a satisfactory visit. You plan tour schedules tailored to suit your clients’ needs and execute them. With this job, you are constantly on the road, and you get paid for it!

8. Abroad Au Pair

If you love kids, consider taking care of them by being a language-based au pair in a foreign home! The job would be to teach your language to the kids and make sure that you care for them while living in the home. This pays up to $1,000 per month.

9. Yacht Sailing Steward/Stewardess

If you are keen on seeing the world, and you don’t mind working on a yacht, which pays very well if I may add, this is a job to consider. Most available jobs on a yacht such as a steward(ess) and others, which are easy to learn and pay very well.

10. Travel Publicist

As a travel publicist, you can work for hotels, airlines, cruise lines, agencies, and other companies that have business relations in different locations.

11. Cruise Ship Director

12. Hotel Regional Manager

As a hotel regional manager, you are responsible for the smooth running of a hotel chain within a region as well as maintaining its profitability. You get to travel to various locations for meetings, hotel openings, and various events. While getting to this position will require your education up to a university degree, and some years of hospitality experience, if this kind of job appeals to you, it will be worth the process.

13. Creative Director

Creative directors work with designers, copywriters, art directors, etc, and are the heads of such teams in marketing agencies or a marketing department of an international agency. They are responsible for the advertisements released on different media, as well as promotional campaigns.
