Earn Money Online for Travel Writers: 5 Sites That Pay Writers Per Post

Although there are many ad-revenue sites that pay for residual or passive income, but there are also sites that pay upfront and pay the writer a specified amount when they accept the article.

So, for travel writers, here is a list of 5 sites that will pay you for a post. For those who are not so much into travel writing, don’t despair. I’ll post a tip for you.

1. BootsnAll

BootsnAll pays $30-$50 per post through PayPal. You can read their Indie Travel Manifesto for the submission guidelines. You can submit different types of articles or posts, but the pay will also vary.

2. Transition Abroad 

This site is actually geared towards those who want to live somewhere outside the United States. Aside from living outside the US, this site also posts articles for cultural learning. This is a good site that doesn’t talk about travel as a vacation. This is travel as a learning experience. They pay around $50-$150 for an article.

3. Budget Travel

Budget Travel pays $0.50 – $1 per word so this is another worthwhile site to look into. The site is more into providing site users with articles on traveling without spending so much money and how-to articles in getting the best flight deals.

4. Go Galavanting

This site pays up to $50 per article. You will have to wait for 3 weeks to get paid, but if you don’t hear from them, then it’s time to submit that article somewhere else, or you could contact the site to make sure. You can submit essays, features, or a blog post about your travels.

5. Unanchor

This site pays an article for $50 – $100. This site focuses on making itinerary plans for easier travel.

So what are you waiting for? Travel and write!

I love to write, read, and use my skills to make this world a slightly better place every day.

  1. Writers should consider sharing their travel tips, experiences on one of these sites. I have a friend who are into traveling, I can suggest these sites to him. Thank you so much.

  2. This tip of yours is very much excellent my friend. I have bookmarked this page, And if my article is published on any one of the site, I will surely write about it.
    Thanks for this valuable info.

    • I just took a peek, the first one is for people from everywhere. I wasn’t really clear on the others, but they “might” be, though one of them says North America, which might mean just about anything.

  3. These are great for anyone who wants to travel, as well as those who “have” traveled to different parts of the world, because they know first hand what it’s like. Great tips!
