Are you stuck at home while everyone else is sipping fruity drinks on the beach or hobnobbing with Disney characters? Don't feel bad-- instead use this time to your advantage by making extra cash off summer travelers. Here are five ways their vacation can cushion your bank account.


Dog Sitting
Earn $15 a day or more pet sitting for people in your community. Sign up for a free account on websites like dogvacay.com or Rover.com and soon you'll be hosting a four-legged friend whose family is on vacation.

Car Loaning
Why should Enterprise and Hertz get all the rental car business? If you've got a car and you're willing to share try renting it out to travelers. Set your vehicle's availability at relayrides.com where you control the price and insurance is included with every rental. Another option is getaround.com.

Lift to the Airport
When your flight leaves at six in the morning it can be hard to find a lift. Offer your driving services to vacationers at lyft.me. Drivers make up to $35 an hour and set their own schedule.

Room Rental
Give travelers an alternative to the rough comforters and stiff towels usually found in hotel rooms. Sign up to turn your unused bedrooms into business with airbnb.com. Travelers have booked ten million nights through the site.

Tour Guide
If you know your city's hotspots and must-see destinations sign up to be a tour guide at Vayable.com. Take vacationers off the beaten path and show them an amazing time. Then you'll get paid within 24 hours of the experience.
