Why renting out your car is the easiest way to earn money fast

Whether Christmas is around the corner or it’s summer making a solid case for taking a holiday, any spare cash is always greatly appreciated at any time of the year.

While you could always take on extra hours at work or pick up the odd weekend job, there is a much, much easier way to earn money – and quickly.

Drive My Car is one of the best and easiest ways to make money without working. It allows car owners to rent out their car in a peer-to-peer rental scheme that helps you earn cash when your vehicle isn’t in use.

What makes the process so easy?

Drive My Car has cut out all the excess and clutter of traditional car rentals to make the whole process as quick and pain-free as possible.

All you’ll do is sign you and your car up, create a listing with a description of the vehicle and a few nice photos, and wait for the rental requests to start pouring in. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve got plenty of advice and tips on renting your car successfully.

We vet all renters to make sure it’s only trustworthy people who are renting your car, and we’ve got it covered for roadside assistance, accident and insurance theft as well.

To organise your rental, you’ll take your pick of renters and confirm their bookings. We will collect the payment from them and complete all the ID and credit checks, then confirm with you that you’re good to make the handover. We’ll set you up with a checklist for both the handover and return to make sure the car is in the same condition when you get it back, and we’ll pay you directly for your rental.

Even then, if that all sounds a bit much, we have a service called Manage My Car where we take care of all those details for you.

How much could you earn?

Here’s the fun part – earning extra money in Australia without so much as putting your shoes on.

You can earn anywhere from an extra $350 to a massive $1,750 per month. How’s that for handy spare cash for that upcoming holiday?

Your income will depend on your car make, model, and other simple details, and of course how much you choose to rent it out for, and how often you rent it. If you’d like to get an idea of how much you might earn, try the rental calculator to see why this is one of the easiest and most creative ways to make money.

How to make money renting your car

To begin, head to our ‘List Your Car’ page to ensure your vehicle meets our basic criteria, then make your listing that will appeal to renters.

We will double check your listing, and approve it once we can see that you’ve ticked all the boxes. Once approved, your car is listed and available for rentals on Drive My Car. You’ll receive booking requests, and simply decide who to rent it to, when to rent it, and how much you’d like to earn.

From there, it’s simply a case of meeting up for the handover and watching your easy cash roll through to your bank account!
