1. Pet sit

Many people decide to travel during the summer months. That means there are pets that need attending. If you love animals and will be in the same place for a few months, this may be a great option.

Pet owners will pay you to stop over during the day to feed and walk their pet. Some may pay you to stay overnight for the duration of their vacation.

Sometimes they will even stock the fridge for you and let you use their amenities. Pet sitting averages about $12 an hour.

2. House sit

House sitting can be similar to pet sitting. Someone will pay you to take care of and watch over their house while they are on vacation. The owner may let you use their amenities- like a pool or spa.

House sitting can earn you between $25 and $75 per day depending on home size. If they have projects for you to do around the house or pets, you could make a little extra.

3. Rent out your car

Renting out your car is an easy way to make money. This is a great option for people who work from home and don’t use their car all the time.

Rental cars have been harder to get ahold of because of shortages. So people traveling through your town could rent out your car and you’ll get paid for it.

Turo is a popular site that car owners use to rent out their cars. There, you can set your price and schedule. Some people have reported making an extra $85o a month this way.

4. Clean pools

Everyone loves swimming in a pool in the summertime, but not everyone loves maintaining it. Many people hire a pool service to clean and check the chemicals weekly.

If you have enough clientele, you could get a steady stream of work in the summer. The average rate is $50-$100 an hour.
