Who says every vacation should be easy? So long as you’re willing to use a little elbow grease, you could score free meals and accommodations by volunteering on your next trip. Thanks to the sharing economy, innovative work-exchange solutions like Workaway and HelpX connect travelers with locals around the globe looking for help. Volunteers typically work four to five hours a day, five days a week, then have the rest of the time to themselves.
