Your car can be a use­ful tool in sup­ple­ment­ing your in­come…

HIRE OUT YOUR CAR Did you know the av­er­age car in the UK sits idle for up to 23 hours a day? You could make up to £1,000 a month by lend­ing out your ve­hi­cle when you’re not us­ing it. Thanks to Hiy­acar (www.

hiy­acar.co.uk), the UK’S first peer-to-peer car shar­ing plat­form with key­less tech­nol­ogy, you don’t need to bother with the has­sle of hand­ing over car keys, al­low­ing renters to un­lock the car with a se­cure app. Rental fees start from £18 a day for a Toy­ota Aygo to £127 a day for an Audi A5.

WRAP YOUR CAR IN AD­VERTS Let’s be hon­est, plac­ing ads all over your car is not some­thing ev­ery­one would find ap­peal­ing. But it could be a tem­po­rary so­lu­tion if you need some ex­tra cash. Sites like www.car­quids.com and www.rol­li­nads.co.uk al­low driv­ers to place ads on their cars – you can choose what you want to ad­ver­tise, so you’re not driv­ing around with some­thing you’re un­com­fort­able with. You could make around £100 a month by just sign­ing up, get­ting an ad fit­ted, and driv­ing around.

BE­COME A COURIER Thanks to an ever-grow­ing in­ter­net trade, the need for de­liv­ery driv­ers is on the up. Thanks to com­pa­nies like Her­mes, Yodel and Ama­zon Flex, you can sign up as a self-em­ployed courier. You can make up to £15 an hour do­ing this, as long as you have your own car with a valid MOT, and a good knowl­edge of your lo­cal area.

TAKE KIDS TO SCHOOL When you take your kids to school, how many other par­ents are do­ing ex­actly the same thing? If you’ve got the time, of­fer­ing to take and bring their chil­dren home from school will be a wel­come relief for par­ents. Choose peo­ple who live near you, and charge up to £5 per child per day.

SIGHT­SEE­ING TOURS Do you live in an area where you could take tourists sight­see­ing? Why not set your­self up as a tour guide? Speak with your lo­cal tourist in­for­ma­tion of­fice to put your name for­ward, and you can even de­sign a brochure high­light­ing the places you would visit.
