Could You Rent out Your Driveway to Soften Salary Shortfall?

Thousands of people are already renting out their driveway and making good money doing so

Almost 10 million people are currently on furlough at the time of writing, and the economic uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus has left a lot of people concerned about where they’re going to get their money from. Naturally, the population are quickly learning to adapt and become a bit more creative with the ways we generate income and now, thanks to, homeowners are making more than £1,100 per year on average by renting out their driveways as parking spaces.

These extra earnings can prove invaluable for people facing unemployment or a drop in income as the furlough scheme winds down, and it’s very easy work.
