How to travel the World for free

Traveling doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact you can even travel the world without spending money! Here are some tips on how to travel the world for free!

1. Free Transportation

Fly For Free!

Get bumped off from a flight.
Overbooked flights can be a blessing. If you are a globetrotter who loves to reap the benefits of voluntary forfeiting your seat, an overbooked flight means a chance to score free flight vouchers or even money.

Use Credit Card Points

When you use your credit card every time you pay for shopping, dining out and buying groceries ,you are earning points and miles that you can use for your next adventure. Some credit card points are transferable so you can ask your family or friends for their points. 

Use Frequent Flyer Program Points

Register in frequent flyer programs to earn points. Every time you purchase a plane ticket or any add-ons, you earn points that you can use on your next trip. Most of these points are also transferable so you can ask your family for their points.


Hitchhiking is a means of transportation that is gained by asking individuals, usually strangers, for a ride in their car. Download hitchhiking apps or join hitchhiking groups in Facebook to look for free rides.

2. Free Accommodation

There are a lot of ways to get free accommodation. Couchsurfing is a service that connects members to a community of travelers, where you can look for a place to stay or share your home and hometown with travelers.

You can also look for jobs around the world in exchange of free accommodation. Work in a farm in Melbourne, teach English in Bangkok or volunteer in a wildlife research program in Africa. 
Here are some websites where you can look for jobs or apply as a volunteer:

3. Free Food

In addition to free accommodation, some of the websites listed above also offer free food in exchange of work.

Another way of getting free food abroad is attending seminars, conventions, gallery open houses and grand openings and you are most likely to find snacks. Look for events in Facebook or use Time Out to find events in whatever city you are in.

Search for coupons online that offer free appetizers or buy 1 get 1 deals.

Food markets and grocery stores usually have free food samples. 


Free Food!

You don’t have to be rich to travel the world. As long as you have an amazing plan, traveling is easy and amazingly inexpensive.

    I wish this will be the same after Covid-19. Until such time there is no vaccine, travelling for free is (for now) a dream.

  5. Travelling around the world is definitely on my bucket list. And, I’m always excited to save money. Thank you for these tips on ho to travel the world for free.

  6. I have always wanted links of some trusted house-sitting websites and you just hooked me up with a couple, thanks for that.
    The getting bumped off trick is a new one, although where I live, airlines do not overload seats.

  7. Hahaha, I think I’m past the point of trying to travel for free unless it’s business-related. However, back in the day, I remember eating a lunch in Amsterdam consisting of cheese samples only, and couchsurfing al around Spain LOL
