Drivers have a lot of responsibilities particularly when they are using public roads. The public’s safety should be their top priority while driving. Moreover, they need to shoulder the costs of the petroleum or gas which they need to power their engines. Unfortunately, there will be times that they find it hard to do so because of price hikes.
Good thing though that there are some things they can do to resolve this issue. For example, owners and drivers of cars such as the Toyota Altis in the Philippines can use them as a source of extra income. If you are one of these drivers, then you may want to consider the following:
- Tour guides
This job will perfectly fit those who love history or those people who lived in a certain place for a very long time. It would easy for them to point out a tourist s pot and tell the visitors important facts about it.
The tourists are likely to pay you more or hire your services longer if you have very good communication skills and know a place by heart.
Carpooling or ride sharing is extremely popular these days – especially for those who are conscious of their environment. It has been named as one of the best things you can do to fight off global warming.
This service is ideal for parents who usually drop off their kids in their school. You can make easy money by offering to drop off other children to the same school with your son or daughter. People who go to the same workplace with each other can also invite one another to carpool in order to save petrol money.
- Rent out your car
Renting out your car is one of the easiest things you can do to get income out of it. You can simply relax at your home while someone else drives around in it. Just set up a daily rate they would have to pay out every day. Make sure you trust the other person though; check their credentials if you must. Find out if you could trust them to take care of your car as well as bring it back to you by the end of your deal.
- Run advertisements
Another way you can earn cash by using your car is by wrapping it with advertisements. You can easily register with companies like Carvertise online to get some sponsors. You will have to wait some time for them to reply but once they do, all you have to do is approve a visual design and stick it to your vehicle.
You may have to keep the design for about 2 years but that entirely depends on your contract. You will receive your payments through checks, bank transfers, or PayPal.
- Driving lessons
One of the best ways you can earn cash through your car is by handing out driving lessons. First, you need to have a licence to conduct this service after you get it you may want to advertise to get students. You can start small by inviting people you know who need some driving lessons.
- Taxi service
If you have a lot of time to spare, you may want to consider becoming an Uber or a GrabCar driver. It works just like a taxi service; you will have to drive a customer towards their desired destination. Keep in mind that you need to register first with the companies before you are able to offer this service.
