Again, this isn’t particularly a travel site and they won’t accept purely travel narratives, but they are always looking for submissions about the business of earning money while travelling, making money online and the overall business of travel. They also publish short interviews with successful professionals getting paid to travel, either through blogging, photography, videography or any other way.
Abilities is a magazine geared towards people who have disabilities and they have a travel section that’s accepting submissions. They’re looking for articles about travel, health, sport, recreation, careers, education, transportation, housing, social policy, relationships, technology, family life, movie/book reviews and personality profiles. Events and conferences are also considered. If you have a disability or know someone who does and you want to get paid to write online and actually reach an underrepresented audience in the travel space, this could be a great option.
A magazine all about the outdoors, Backcountry is looking for researched, timely, original ideas with a strong backcountry hook, from current events to prolific characters to unique destinations. They are always looking for Feature ideas, as well as Destination stories for their On Location department. Pitch them Profiles and Newsworthy items, Mountain Skills articles and Accounts of avalanches and other mountain mishaps. They also pay up to $400 for photos
This particular work-at-home opportunity takes a little more work experience in general than the other four on this list, but it pays better too. Search engine evaluators examine Internet search results and give feedback as to whether they are accurate, relevant, and spam-free. To do this, the evaluator must be knowledgeable about current culture and the Internet, with good communication skills. Sometimes a college degree is required or preferred, but direct experience as a search evaluator is usually not.
Yet there are plenty of companies you’ve probably never heard of, too. Appen, which tops the list, develops high-quality training data for machine learning and artificial intelligence; not surprisingly, they’re hiring web search evaluators and a slew of linguists in lesser known languages like Sudanese Arabic and Xhosa. BCD Travel, the Dutch managed travel provider, is hiring remotely for their customer service, business development and travel consultant roles. Three universities—Grand Canyon, Western Governors and Walden—make the list as well. To say there’s an abundance of work from home jobs available out there would be an understatement. For most people, there are more than they could ever imagine.

What does that mean for you? It means Nielsen will pay you $50 a year to keep their app on your favorite internet browsing device. The app itself collects statistics on your internet usage anonymously, so you never have to worry about any data being linked to you. And the best part is, the app takes up barely any space and doesn’t slow down your phone or tablet at all!
