How to Make Extra Money Online for Travel

If you’ve never managed to find that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you might be searching around for ways to make a little extra cash in order to fund your travel dreams and plans. There is no money tree, there is no rainbow cash pot – sorry to break it to you, but luckily there are a few ways the internet can help you out.

You don’t have to work every hour god sends to make a little extra cash, however there’s no denying that if you want a major cash injection then you’re going to have to put the hours in.

If you’re wondering how the internet can help send you off to the best destinations in the world with a cash flow boost, here’s a few ideas to help you out.

Online casino/gaming

Yes, you read it right. Now, generally gambling isn’t the best way to make money, because of the risk of losing it, however if you’re careful and you don’t bet too much, then you could find yourself with a cash injection which could certainly help your travel plan pot. Check out the Keno casino game for a fun way to possibly make a little extra cash. Keep your fingers crossed!


They say that one person’s junk is another person’s treasure, or words to that effect, and this is certainly true in the case of eBay. If you’ve ever lost a few hours to eBay, which I think we all have at some point, then you will see that practically everything you can think of is listed on this hugely popular auction site. Basically, you need to have a clear out and get anything you don’t want or use anymore listed. Be brutal – the potential for making cash here is quite large.


You can freelance at many different things, such as writing, translation, proofreading, virtual assistant, graphic designer – the list goes on. Do your research and register with a good quality freelancing website, one which doesn’t ask you for money, and bid for work. It may be slow at first, but as you build up your reputation and profile, you will find more work coming your way, and therefore more cash.

Sell your photographs

If you’re a keen photographer then you may have a few quality snaps sitting on your laptop which someone could use. That person will pay you for them, did you know that? Again, head online and search for reputable websites which pay for high quality photographs. Bear in mind that once you sell the rights, the photograph is no longer yours however, but the cash will be.


You’re not going to make a fortune from blogging in the short-term, and this is something which needs time to build up, but if you can take advice from those in the know, utilise SEO (that’s search engine optimisation, to those who don’t know), and be a little clever with your marketing, then you could make a little to put towards your travel plans.

Making cash on the internet is entirely possible, and all it really takes is time, dedication, and knowing where to look.
