Experienced travelers know that in the trip, you can find totally free housing. Many use special service Mog. People from all over the world leave announcing that they are ready to receive guests at home absolutely for free. Often the overnight stay included a great bonus – tasty local food, cosy get-togethers with local and fascinating conversations with the owner of the house. This allows you to fully experience the country, the city and its features.
In addition to couchsurfing, there is another interesting and unusual and even extravagant search option of free housing in the journey. We are talking about housing for the work. People from different countries (America, Europe, Israel) offer a free stay with them. Instead you have to perform some task, such as to help the home owner. Most often it is cleaning the garden, help on the farm or the garden, cleaning the house, walk dogs or care for the child.
On couchsurfing people are most likely to stay with new friends for a day or two or three. And to find housing for work for a few weeks and even a month.
We offer you a list of the most popular services that will help you to find a suitable option:
Workway.info here you need to register (cost is $ 20 per year) and you will get the contacts of the employers. For performing a specific work you will receive free housing or food. Or both.
Staydu.com here you can choose the place to work for the rent or simply to make. Sometimes there are also free options.
Wwoof.net – a service which provides volunteering options for different farms specializing in organic products.
Organicvolunteers.com – similar to the previous service. But here, housing is many times more.
Helpx.net – absolutely free service, which makes it attractive to tourists. For the work travelers can even stay on the boat.
Work in a foreign country, in a new city is an incredibly valuable and interesting experience, so you should definitely use one of these services.
