Okay, so you’ve read the title, How to Travel for Free, and you’re probably thinking that there’s no way on earth that someone can actually travel for free, unless of course, your famous. Well, then you’ve came to right place, this post will give you tips that my very own family used to travel for free.
Credit Card Rewards – for almost every type of credit score, there is some type of credit card that will give rewards. One of my favorite cards, which offers free introductory night stays at their hotels is this one from Chase. If you don’t have luck getting that card, Barclays offers a similar card for Choicd Brand Hotels and American Express has one for Hilton and Hampton Inn brand hotels
If you have no luck getting any of those cards, try opting for a credit card that offers gift cards for points or air-miles. Like any credit card, read all terms and use carefully.
Mysurvey, Opinion Outpost, Swagbucks– Before blogging, I used to do hundreds of surveys a week. Even though, I didn’t make a ton of money, I did average about $20 a week for only about an hour of work a day. These sites allow you to redeem points for Paypal cash, Amazon rewards and some other gift cards. If you opt to get a gift card instead of PayPal cash, opt for restaurant or gas cards, as these can help you to travel for free whenever you are ready.
Enter Sweepstakes & Contest – I know what you’re thinking, “no one ever wins those things,” wrong!! There are so many contest out there offering FREE vacations that you’re crazy not to enter them. Some of the easy sweepstakes and contest you can enter are usually local ones or radio talk show contest.
Blogging – While I’ll be the first to tell you, blogging isn’t an easy task, so don’t expect this one to come right away. But, blogging does have it’s perks like; free admission to recreational areas, hotels and even free food cards. This can even lead to a career as a travel blogger.
