How To Keep Your Wallet Full While Traveling

Sell your handiwork

If you’re a crafter or have a specific skill, you can make money on your travels by selling your handiwork. With a little research, it’s easy to get a permit to sell your wares at a farmer’s market. If that’s too daunting, often artisans set up stalls near popular tourist areas and spread their wares out on a portable table or blanket. People love being able to meet the person who made their newest piece of art, and you’ll get to keep your wallet full doing what you love. / Shutterstock

The travel community is extremely welcoming and one doesn’t need to try hard to be part of it.

This Is the Fastest Way to Get through Customs

No one enjoys lines, and custom lines are some of the worst. The hundreds of confused flyers with paperwork in hand is daunting, but what if I told you that you can bypass that line for free – without paying for Global Entry? Whether you travel internationally 30 times a year or once a year, you’ll love the app. The Mobile Passport Control app speeds up the process of filling out and processing your U.S. immigration paperwork.
