How Much Do Travel Bloggers Make? (Survey results from TBEX)

Last week, results from a survey conducted by Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX) were released. 318 travel bloggers, including yours truly, were included in the survey, and below are some highlights which I found to be most interesting.

The full survey results can be found here.

  • 70% are women
  • 36% are between 25 and 34 years old and 36% are between 35 and 44 
  • 12% do not hold a college degree or 88% have a college degree or higher
  • 90% have income sources other than their travel blog
  • 65% make less than $100 a month from their blog
  • 71% contribute freelance blog posts to other websites
  • 59% make less than $100 a month from these freelance blog posts
  • 66% have a combined household income over $50,000
The moral of the story is that the majority of travel bloggers do not make money from blogging for themselves or others, so don't quit your day job!
