The greatest side hustle of all is the one that lets someone else — or something else — do all the hustling for you while you collect the payoff. If you’re a reformed commuter who joined the remote workforce revolution, if you have a second car, or if you just don’t drive that much, put your idle wheels to work and collect on the payout.
P2P car-rental services like Turo let travelers in need of a ride bypass expensive and frustrating rental car companies and rent directly from people like you. With 14 million prescreened users, there’s incredible demand, especially now that the chip shortage has made new cars, used cars and rentals so expensive and limited in selection.
You don’t have to worry about insurance — each car approved by Turo is covered by a $750,000 Travelers policy. The average side hustler with one car to rent out earns an average of $10,516 annually — actually, their vehicle earns it for them.
