Free holidays
free holidays

Virtually nothing is entirely free and the same applies to holidays. This page show you how to pay as little as possible. Your accommodation may be 'free' but in almost every case something is required in return, your time and effort or a reciprocal arrangement

As a single person or even a childless couple it is sometimes possible to find ways of travelling at little cost, for example working on an eco farm, volunteering on various agricultural and environmental projects – especially if you are not too fussy about where you can go. You will need to work in return for your keep. After work, time is your own and you may be able to go sightseeing and explore this new destination.

Alternatively you could sign up with a house sitting agency and look after someone’s house whilst they are away. You would need to maintain the house in a clean and tidy condition and be responsible for its security.

Or, you could agree to a foreign guest scheme such as Couch Surfing or Hospitality Club where you can be a guest in a stranger’s house and you return the favour by inviting them to your home. The obvious danger here is developing a dislike towards this stranger with whom you have tied up one or two weeks of your life.

Religious communities sometimes accept working guests. Again, free board and lodging is offered in return for your manual labour. Hours may be long and you could be spending most of your working hours in the kitchen. Try searching for Christian and Buddhist retreats.

One requirement that all of these 'free' options demand is your commitment to hard work and an open attitude.
