Should you need a quick way to earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars (and you have another place where you can stay), you can rent out your house/apartment/room…

If you happen to travel all the time, you can always list your home on Airbnb.com, HomeAway.com or VRBO.com, and wait for the call.

2. Testing Websites

Testing websites is an easy way to make some quick cash. You can sign up to various platforms which pay participants to check out certain webpages or test apps and give their feedback on them.

A pretty quick, easy and fun gig, you’ll agree.

3. Lease A Parking Space

If you happen to live in a big city where parking is a tricky and expensive thing to come by, you might be in for a pretty easy paycheck. Renting out your parking space can really be worth the hassle.

If you have a spare garage, you’ve hit a jackpot!

4. Be A Tour Guide

If you love geography and architecture and you have a decent knowledge about your (or some other) city, you might just be able to earn good money as a tour guide.

You can set your own schedule according to your convenience and offer tourists your own take on the city. Some aspects to think about:

  • Architecture
  • History

  • Pub tours
  • Trivia

You can even make a business out of it.

5. Pet-Sitter

6. Peer-to-Peer Delivery Driver

If you commute to work, you are in for a treat. Your daily commute (or cross-country road trips) are actually harboring a rather interesting money-making opportunity. A certain peer-to-peer delivery agency called Roadie connects people with stuff to send with drivers heading in the right direction.
