Once you’ve retired, you’ll probably have too much time on your hands. Travel is probably on the long list of things you want to do too. What if we told you you could get a very rewarding job while travelling at the same time? It is possible, and right here, we’ll walk you through some of the best options. Let’s get started!
1. Tour Guide
This one is for those who love interacting with a bunch of people and are passionate about history and sharing knowledge. As a tour guide, you will be able to see the world and share your knowledge of each site’s history with big groups of people. The only skillset you’ll need is the ability to retain facts and capture the audience’s attention. Oh, the places you could go!
2. Travel Agent
As a travel agent, you’ll need knowledge of the places you send your clients to, which means freebie tips for reviews! You won’t have to work for a company and can easily set up your office at home while working on itineraries and checking for the best deals on behalf of your clients. For this job you’ll need a keen eye for detail and enough background knowledge to assist people in planning and booking their dream trips.
3. Event Planner
As an event planner you might not necessarily see the world, but definitely venues in all shapes and sizes. You’ll have to have some pizazz and creative flair to put parties together on behalf of your clients. Whether you want to plan birthday parties, corporate events, or weddings, you’ll have your fill in selecting every detail for the perfect party.
4. Campsite Operative
If you are planning to take your recreational vehicle for a tour around the country during your retirement, this part-time gig might be perfect for you! You’ll be able to stay at the campsite at a discounted fee while checking in guests and ensuring everything runs smoothly at the site. And, you won’t have to stay at one spot either. You can plan and contact sites before you hit the road and travel the country!
