Become an AirBnb host
If you have a spare room or a guest house, you can become an AirBnb host. If you have neither, but you have generous friends, you can crash on a buddy’s couch while you periodically rent out your entire home for a weekend. AirBnb hosts rake in quite a bit of cash. Even a quaint one-bedroom cottage can get $250 a night if it’s in a desirable area like near a city center or in a pretty countryside. And if you live in a major city, remember that travelers are looking for ways to avoid the $500 a night hotel fees there. They’d likely happily pay $200 a night for a room in your apartment. Do use a legitimate site like AirBnb that will vet guests – for your safety.
