Flight

Travel is the ultimate adventure, but it can be hard to schedule time for it around the constant crush of our working lives. The solution for some people is to find a job that includes travel or whose schedule allows for more travel time than your average 9 to 5 office position. Here are some of the best jobs that allow you to travel the world.

  1. Flight Attendant

While it’s probably one of the most obvious on this list, being a flight attendant is one of the best careers for travelers. While the job has a lot of physical and time demands associated with it, airlines will often offer free or discounted flights for you and your close family members, making it well worth it for avid travelers looking to make money and save it at the same time.

  1. Jobs on Cruise Ships

Alongside flight attendants, cruise ship workers have some of the best opportunities for travel. You are essentially paid to see the world and travel on cruise ships, most of which offer free room and board for their workers. Cruise ships employ servers, technicians, cashiers, performers, and many other types of professionals, so there’s a spot for everyone aboard.

  1. Travel Agents

While travel agencies did experience a decline with the advent of the Internet and online bookings, they’re currently experiencing a resurgence thanks to their excellent advice and reputations. Becoming a travel agent requires you to have extensive experience with traveling to different destinations, and some companies will even pay for you to gain this experience. While the industry requires a lot of attention to detail and a certain set of skills, it can be really rewarding for those who find it suits them.

  1. International Aid Workers

If you’re passionate about helping people and making a difference while traveling, working or volunteering with nonprofit international organizations can be a great opportunity. Whether it’s with the Peace Corps or other companies such as the Red Cross, you can usually travel to countries that need assistance during disasters, pandemics, wars, and other issues to help the people affected. Most aid workers have backgrounds in health, social services, or other humanities, but it can be a great way to travel while exploring your passion for helping those in need.
