Best Jobs For People Who Love to Travel

How to travel and make money too.


The amount of time workers receive for paid time off in the United States is typically around two weeks. Many restrictions also apply such as needing to wait 90 days to accumulate the time off or having to make sure the time off is approved.

For someone who loves to travel, it doesn’t make the lifestyle very conducive. However, there are dozens of jobs out there that can accommodate someone who wants to take their job on the road.

Here are eleven of the best jobs for people who love to travel.

Real Estate Agent

One of the best parts about becoming a real estate agent is that you get to be your own boss. You’re in charge of your schedule and taking time off only requires permission from yourself. It’s extremely easy and affordable to get your real estate license online, too. Some programs start as low as $99.

Content Writer

Digital marketing companies and individual businesses are always in need of content. Whether it’s for their blog, SEO link building, social media content, or technical writing, there is never a shortage of content writing jobs.

Many of the positions allow for a wide range of job experience. For instance, if you used to work in the IT field, you can become a content writer specifically for IT blogs, news sources, and businesses.

Virtual Assistant

Many third-party platforms offer great opportunities for people who want to become virtual assistants. You sign up for an account and upload your resume. You then get connected with business professionals who need extra help. You set up the hours you’ll work with your boss and work remotely.

Flight Attendant

A great job for anyone who loves to travel is flight attending. There are great perks such as being able to get free flights (excluding taxes) on your personal time. If you don’t mind staying in hotels in different cities while meeting wonderful people, this could be the job for you.

Event Coordinator

Event coordinators were briefly out of work during the pandemic. But in 2022, it’s a complete game-changer. Businesses are looking for innovative individuals who can help set up both in-person and virtual events.

ESL Teacher

ESL (English as a Second Language) teachers come in many different forms. Some companies allow you to teach students virtually. On the other hand, there are ample opportunities to relocate to another country. The hours are flexible and you have the option to teach English to children, teenagers, or adults. 


Becoming an influencer isn’t as easy as posting a photo and making millions of dollars. It requires diligence in developing a niche and building a network. Influencers usually make money through affiliate marketing.

Sometimes they can be paid by posting about a product or service. Other times they receive referral links. The more people who purchase using the referral link, the more commissions you’ll make. It’s a great opportunity to make passive income while you travel.

Yoga Instructor

Yoga instructors can easily add travel to their jobs. Studios, hotels, and other hospitality industries are always looking to offer new opportunities to their clients. As a yoga instructor, you can even look to offer yoga retreats in other countries.

Travel Nurse

If you have experience in the medical field, you may have an opportunity to become a travel nurse. The hours and relocation can sometimes be demanding, but the pay is worth it. Travel nurses can easily get paid upwards of almost $3,000 per week. There are also other perks such as relocation fees and occasionally free housing.

Graphic Designer

As long as you have internet access, you can perform your daily duties as a graphic designer from anywhere in the world. All graphic design work is performed digitally. This is why many businesses want to outsource their work through freelancers to help save their companies money.

Social Media Manager

All businesses utilize social media in some part of their marketing strategy. Social media managers are one of the highest-paying remote jobs. You can jump on board with a company as a full-time employee or freelance through contract work.
