How to top up your travel budget while backpacking around Europe

When you’re hitting the road on a trip of epic proportions to new and far flung places and locales, you may be wondering how you can stop yourself from blowing through your savings while out there exploring the wide-open world. Here are a couple of ways you can save money or top up that bank balance while you’re out exploring Europe and further afield.

Help X

Help X-ing is a fantastic way to help slow the expenditure of your precious savings while travelling the world. Join up their website for a low fee and gain access to jobs all over the world on a voluntary basis where lodging and usually food is provided mostly free of charge. Depending what you want to do there is something for everyone from teaching English, helping to build fences, mend homes, care for animals, mind children and the like. There are even the occasional group on there that can help procure you work visas if you want to stay longer to work for them on a more permanent, paid basis. Otherwise, it’s a great way to get a free room and food in exchange for a couple of hours of work a day.

Play Online Casino Games

It might sound a bit far fetched – playing casino games to help plump the funds, but it’s true! With so many websites for online casinos these days offering sign up bonuses, no deposit play and other new joiner benefits, it can be easy to win real money without having to risk any of your own! This can be a great, fun way to get some cash flowing back through the bank account, especially if it’s a rainy day with not much else to do. So add an app or two to your phone and get playing to win real money!

Join House Sitting Groups

Back to the voluntary options, house sitting groups are a great way for you to slow or stop spending. This is literally where you house sit while someone is away on holiday. You may need to be checked out by a criminal records check or the like in order to sign up to some sites, but it’s a great way to save money and live like a real local while you’re on the road!

So there you have some great ways to save money or plump up your account while you’re on the road around Europe, or further afield. With so many options out there nowadays to help travellers travel longer, there’s never been a better time to get those bags packed and get out on the road to explore the planet!
