There are a few different ways your car can earn you money — putting ads on your car, renting your car out to others, and acting as a personal taxi and giving people in your area rides.
Putting Ads On Your Car
These companies are usually scams. As a good rule of thumb, never apply to a company saying they will pay you to drive around with ads on your car if they are asking you to pay money upfront.
Carvertise is one company claiming to pay people to do this that does not appear to ask people for money.
Rent Your Car Out By the Hour
The following companies will allow you to list your car for rent. This may be a great option if you own a car that you don't need to drive very much. This lets you get paid for it's idle time.
- Getaround – Limited to certain geographic areas. You must have a Facebook account to register as a car owner.
- Turo – Limited to certain geographic areas. Earn an extra $200 per month or more for registering as a car owner.
Get Paid to Drive People Around
And, these companies will pay you hourly to act as a “personal taxi” for people who need rides. Most of these companies claim you can earn over $20 to $30 hourly, but most people who do this say it works out to around $10 or $15 hourly in most cases.
