5 Ways on How to Score Free Travel

Everyone loves to get something for FREE. Have you thought about how to travel for free? Here's a quick guide on how to score free travel:
  1. Get a job with travel benefits. Usually big multinational companies need to take their employees to different places to attend to business concerns. This is one of the reasons why I love my corporate job. It takes me to places in the Philippines like Bohol, Palawan, Boracay, Iloilo, Davao, Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro and many more for FREE. Some even get to travel abroad for free. You get free plane fare, free hotel accommodation, and even free food allowance. Make the most out of your business trips by getting to enjoy the sights each place has to offer.
  2. Be on the lookout for promo offers. A lot of companies offer freebies for selected customers, if you're lucky. Cebu Pacific this year offered FREE flights to reward their clients and celebrate their success this 2008. If you're the first one to get news about these promo offers, you'd surely get to score freebies if you're quick enough. Make sure you're always informed about the latest promo offers available.
  3. Join an organization that sends representatives to other countries. Be it a religious community or a networking group, there are lots of organizations out there that sponsors representatives to various events in other places. In these situations, you have to work hard to be active in the group and be selected as representative.
  4. Get a sponsor. You could apply for a scholarship or ask friends and relatives to take you to places where they currently are. If you're lucky to find a sponsor willing to spend for your travel, go ahead and enjoy the benefit. Make sure you return the favor by being a good guest and helping them in any way that you can.
  5. Humbly ask for help from people. I've witnessed a story unfold about someone asking people to help send her to a World Youth Day event. She merely asked for donations from people online to spare their extra money so she could fulfill her dream, and true enough she got the donations she needed. This may be a long shot for some people, but it wouldn't hurt to try.
There are lots of other ways you could explore to score free travel. Some articles on the Internet talk about house sitting, sister city exchanges, home swapping and more. I simply compiled the 5 ways that are most familiar to me. I hope this post helps. Good luck!

Oh. Since it's the holiday season and people must be feeling generous, here's a humble request: If you want to sponsor the Chic Traveller to her next trip, don't hesitate to click the Paypal button on her right sidebar. Haha. Here's an easy link for you. ;)
