5. Car

‘Rent my stuff’ includes car rentals, too. If you have decided to abandon your car for a while, you could rent it out to those who could use it to do their grocery shopping, for example. If your vehicle meets the criteria set and becomes popular among renters, you will hit the jackpot.

Both Turo y Getaround offers vehicle insurance to their members. Both platforms keeps a certain percentage of your earnings as a commission fee.

In big cities, it happens quite often that customers need to wait in line to get their bagel, iPhone, new pair of shoes, etc. Some people can’t handle the crowd, hate waiting or simply don’t want to waste any minute doing so dull things. So what do they do? They hire a person who doesn’t mind chilling outside a store, perhaps in minus temperatures.
