#1. Bartering

Yup. First,  is Bartering. This is a real thing and it can definitely be used to travel for free! And,  as I talk about in my youtube video [ HERE ] I was offered a full weeks stay at a resort in Patagonia by using this trick. However, I won’t lie, it does take some elbow grease. So, what you need to do is identify something you are pretty good at – you don’t need to be any expert! Think about it, it can be construction, social media, webpages, art, writing – ALMOST anything!

Just wait till you see these web pages. You can either see what other people are looking for and see if you can fulfill it OR leave a post saying you can do, ” X ” in exchange for a stay at resorts or hotels. You can also be creative and directly contact resorts / hotels in places you want to stay at. Reach out the them and say something along the lines of , ” I am really amazing at [ Fill in the blank ] and I would love to offer my service to you. Instead of paying me for this service have you ever thought about trading services? ” With a little effort you will get someone to say YES and you can travel for FREE! Here are some of my favorite bartering webpages for traveling for FREE:

#2. House Swap 

This is an amazing way to vacation for free, and no you don’t have to live in a million-dollar Pinterest perfect home. Many people just want to experience what it is like to live in another place and explore new places.

There are MANY house-swapping webpages that help you set up the arrangement and make it safe for everyone who wants to participate. Here are some of the webpages I recommend:
