Side gigs are becoming the norm, allowing people to increase their financial security, have more flexibility, expand their network and develop their passions. For many, the ability to travel and see the many sights of the world is a dream come true. Have you ever scrolled and wondered how Instagram travel influencers manage to go on so many vacations? This fantasy can become your reality! Here’s why becoming a Dream Vacations Advisor is one of the best ways to make money on the weekend.

How to Become a Digital Nomad With No Experience

From eating pastries while typing in a Parisian café to answering emails from your phone before cruising down a zipline in Fiji, digital nomads can work remotely while traveling the world. Now, remote work is more accessible than ever, and becoming a digital nomad is as simple as finding a position that allows you to work from home. As a travel advisor for Dream Vacations, you can work from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. So go ahead and book that zipline excursion!

In fact, becoming a travel advisor is one of the best remote side gigs because the demand for travel is positively booming. According to Mastercard data, leisure travel bookings are up 42% in 2023 compared to 2022. People are excited to travel, and you can share that passion with them by helping your clients book their vacations, earning commission for every trip sold.

One of the biggest draws of becoming a Dream Vacations Travel Advisor is having the ability to access discounted or even free travel. Dream Vacations advisors have the opportunity to attend familiarization trips (or “FAM” trips), where you experience destinations at a discounted price to get firsthand knowledge for your customers. 

How to Make Money as a Stay at Home Mom

You may be searching for ways to make money on the weekend. Becoming a Dream Vacations Advisor allows you the flexibility to make your own schedule, ideal for anyone with a hectic daily agenda, like stay-at-home parents. So, whether you want to squeeze in some time on the weekend while the kids nap or work from your phone while waiting outside of your six-year-old’s dance class, you can research and schedule trips whenever it fits your schedule. You choose your own workload, scheduling as little or as much time to work as you see appropriate.

Another big benefit for stay-at-home parents of working as a travel advisor is the social aspect of it. It allows you to connect with other people in your community who are excited about travel as you are. Plus, as a Dream Vacations Advisor, you’ll be connected with a Dream Vacations franchise owner, who will serve as your mentor. Travel is simply one of the easiest ways to connect with people! You can engage with acquaintances you already know or market yourself to meet new people and potential customers – all while becoming part of the Dream Vacations travel tribe.
