Some of these ideas will take you a short time and with others, you’ll even have fun and you’ll meet people, you’ll see. Summer can be enjoyed even while working.
# 1 Earn money in summer being a kangaroo
This is one of the star ideas to earn some extra money in the holidays.
Very easy. The children are on school holidays but the parents’ holidays do not have the same duration. So they have to find someone (one or a babysitter) to spend a few hours a day with the little ones.
Many will believe that it is a job for girls but there are also parents who hire boys. The important thing is that you demonstrate your experience, your knowledge and how you can help those parents.
If you are good at children, have experience or studies, start to put ads on Internet sites, in the portal of your building, talk to neighbors, friends of your parents, …
As a babysitter, you can earn between 10 and 12 dollars per hour.
If you have ever done babysitter with the children of your neighbors, your cousins or others, ask them to recommend you to other people and to write you a reference. This will show the seriousness of your work.
# 2 Caring for older people in summer (or all year)
Some families seek extra help for elderly care throughout the year. But if you can do it alone in summer, it’s a good way to earn extra money.
In some cases, you may be asked to do some housework such as making a purchase or preparing something to eat, nothing complicated.
My advice: To find opportunities to take care of elderly people, I recommend talking to your surroundings and asking them to recommend you.
# 3 Earn money in summer as a tour guide for your city
Does your city receive many tourists in summer? If it is your case, then become a tour guide.
You do not have to be an expert in History. You can prepare original routes, where tourists know the hidden corners of your city, make them live gastronomic and cultural experiences that no guide mentions. Also if you speak other languages you can be a guide of several nationalities.
Prepare tours with small groups to create a friendly atmosphere where everyone can participate. Tells some history with some anecdotes that the books do not tell. Considering Your Age when You Travel.
# 4 Caring for pets in summer
In summer, pets also need to be taken care of and pampered. So if you like pets, what better way to earn extra money in the summer than taking care of them …., Do not you think?
When families go on vacation and can not take their pet, they look for someone to take care of them, you can be that person.
In some cases they may ask you to take them out two or three times a day, perhaps to house a pet in your home, or maybe they want you to take care of them but at home. You decide how you can take care of the pet and how much you would do it.
My advice :
For owners and caregivers: before accepting, I think it is important to know/present the pet, you must know who you are and have confidence. I tell you this from my own experience. A few months ago we took care of (my boyfriend and me) the kitten of some friends, it is beautiful but it is very shy. Despite knowing us already, at first he hid and only went out to eat, but little by little he came and played with us. Both he and we had a good time these days.
# 5 Give private lessons to earn extra money in summer
The exams of recovery, the classes of reinforcement, … For some in summer, it is also time to study.
If you have knowledge with which you can help children and adolescents to pass their exams, then encourage yourself to be their teacher or private teacher.
You can give face-to-face classes or online classes, or combine the two. So, if your student goes away a few days, he can continue receiving classes.
I recommend you to offer the first free hour, to show your knowledge and know exactly what your student needs. It offers the possibility of the classroom and online classes.
# 6 Rent on Airbnb
If you go a few days out, rent your house or your room at Airbnb.
You just have to make some nice pictures, put a clear and detailed description of your accommodation, fix the availability and the price, and that’s it!
If you do not plan to go on vacation, you can rent a room in your house. If you do not mind sharing your house, of course.
One of the advantages of Airbnb is that you can know the ratings of the person you want to rent before accepting, and if you do not convince the profile can say no. In addition, Airbnb handles the charge and then it will be sent to you, this is quite safe.
On this website, you can rent your accommodation but you can also stay at other people’s house. I have done it and the truth has been quite good, I have had good experiences and you know pretty nice people who recommend places in your city.
Create a nice ad, with photos and clear information. Answer the doubts of your potential guests.
# 7 Rent the car to private individuals
If you do not have plans to move on this vacation, a good idea to earn extra money in summer is to rent your car.
You create an advertisement with the description of your vehicle, the availability (hours or days) and the price. As simple as that. When there is someone interested in your vehicle, you just have to accept and agree on the time of delivery of the keys and the vehicle.
Surely you will be asked, is this safe? The truth is that yes. The company through which you rent your car has insurance that covers any incident that may occur. You will have your car back at the agreed time and you will have earned some money without doing almost anything.
My advice :
Normally all websites work in the same way, but if you have questions, do not hesitate to contact them and they will inform you.
# 8 Earn extra money in summer by sharing trips
Since we talk about cars …
Do you know that in summer there are many people who travel to the beach, to the town, to see their family, their friends, …?
If you are also going to travel by car and have free places, then publish your trip on one of the websites that I will recommend. In these websites, you will find other people who want to go to the same destination as you. In this way, you do not travel alone or alone and the other person can travel saving some money.
Answer the doubts of travelers and as always be careful on the road.
