Taking a break from your day- to- day routine is wonderful, but some trips break the bank. It’s increasingly difficult to go on holiday and save money at the same time. However there are certain things you can do to make money instead. If you are booked to go on a two- week holiday, there’s no reason why you should be out of pocket during that time. Here are some tips on how to make money while enjoying your vacation:
Home – stay

These sites provide a service for a nominal fee where they display photos of your home (which you upload) and hook you up to another family on the other side of the globe planning to visit your city for a vacation. Some sites even allow you to contact the visitors directly and negotiate a price, while others maintain anonymity and fixed prices. Find reputable and certified sites though, because this is also an easy way for internet- thieves to scam you. This way, your house doesn’t remain empty (which sends up a red flag for thieves and you make some money into the bargain.
Parking and Renting
Most families prefer to leave their vehicles in long term parking at Airport Parking 4 Less lots while vacationing elsewhere. This is because they ensure the security and maintenance of the vehicle while they are away.

These companies not only maintain and service your car, they will also refuel it, and sometimes even repair it, in order to rent it out. Most companies will deduct the parking cost incurred from the rental earned, thereby minimizing your expenditure; others will pay you a commission for letting them rent it; still others will keep a commission and pay you the amount earned by the car.
