    Long story short, I recently bought a ticket to Thailand to go travelling on myself, but 7 days before I am due to leave, I have had to pay £150 out of my money for something stupid. I know $100 isn't close to £150, but it will be a huge help, and will take a little weight off my shoulders.I am willing to do anything.Throw your ideas at me!Thanks a lot for any responses

    Hey there,

    Your problem is not the $100 but the time frame of 7 days which is too steep! Even if you were to make the $100 right this second, it would take more than 7 days for you to have it in your hands unless you find someone who you can build a website for or do some custom graphics / article writing. Something of that nature would get the job done.

    Have you considered loans? If it's that much of an emergency then try title loans, pawn shops etc.. That would do the trick for you but only use it as a last resort.

    Good luck and I hope you find that $100 or a way to manage without it.

    In such a short space of time your options are limited.

    Here's a couple of ideas

    1. Find a labouring job - this is a quick option for 'cash in hand' work.
    2. Find farm work - fruit picking, or whatever is in season.
    3. Sell something - everyone has something worth £100.

    Another option is a personal delivery service.

    Law firms, solicitors and other companies regularly need to have documents, contracts or other small packages delivered overseas urgently.

    In these circumstances they often use private travellers to do so - in the past lots of people travelled in this way as the companies also organised the flights.

    I don't know how you would find something at such short notice but it is worth a try.

    Obviously make sure you only work with legitimate companies and make sure everything is documented and above board!

    Buy a few grams of coke, cook it with baking soda.

    Sell to your friends.

    Profit.

    PPD or PPI is enough for making $100 in 7 days and sometimes more than that.. it depends on how hardworking and creative you are... :)

    To be honest, I would probably call my family for help. Just repay them when you get back

    Be a ladyboy in thailand. I think you will bring 1000 Euros back ;)

    Jokes apart:

    Go in your closet and find an old item or go to any garage sale and find cheap stuff.

    List it on Ebay or facebook buy sell groups and keep the auction open for 24 hours. ( Better would be finding a local FB group and sell it personally .

    You are from UK. I assume you understand cricket. India vs England ODI series is going on. Bet some money on a higher odd. Make sure you know what you are betting on or you will earn peanuts.

    Look out for pet keepers ads on gumtree. This is summer time so many people are looking for people who would take care of their pets.

    If you are from London go around the city center and find tourist who are alone. Approach them and be their tour guide for a day. I once did this and earned a cool 50Euros in a matter of a day. The couple was old and I showed them inside out of my city.

    As they say, " where there is a will there is a way" All the best and happy journey to Thailand.

    PS: Next time save and invest your money in something fruitful. If you do not pay yourself the part of the money you have earned then you do not deserve to be rich in the longer term.

    your time is too less and money that you want is too much! why don't you borrow from a friend for the trip and then take a part time job and pay back the money...

    Couchsurf and stay in the same city for 4 days, eat cheapest pad thai once a day and drink water only from receptions. It will take you 4 days to recoup $100 if your initial budget was 20-30 per day.
