Sell your vacation photos
Your Instagram followers shouldn’t be the only ones to appreciate your awe-inspiring vacation snaps. Instead, you can make money on vacation by putting those photos to work for you. List your best shots for sale with an online stock photo site such as Istockphoto.com, pond5.com, and Shutterstock.com; then those sites can sell your images to websites, creative directors, travel agencies, and people looking for background images for their blogs. You receive a percentage of the sale, which varies depending on the site listing your photo. Be sure to review the technical requirements before uploading your pictures, as most sites require higher-quality images than you can take with a smartphone. Here’s how to take amazing photos.
Rent out your house
While you can save money in most big cities by staying in an Airbnb instead of a hotel, you can pay for the cost of your stay by renting out your pad back home. Not sure how you feel about strangers in your house when you’re not there? The company provides host-protection insurance in case anything gets damaged or broken. You can also read reviews that users have received from other hosts to avoid potential problems.
