Would you rent your driveway out to a stranger?

People have been earning Christmas spending money by renting out their parking spaces to commuters

There's now a website that lets you search for homeowner's driveways to park on. Yes, you read that right. The people over at YourParkingSpace.co.uk have created a website that lets you search for parking spaces to leave your car whilst you go to work or out for a spot of shopping.

With Christmas approaching, car parks are becoming extremely busy. Driveway rentals are set to increase up to 15% this festive period, and are often cheaper in price compared to the multi-story car parks in city and town centres.

With already 18,000 driveway and empty space owners on the website, people have been making more than £500 over the year, which is the average cost of a British family's Christmas. Space owners in other parts of the UK such as Milton Keynes, Luton and Leicester are said to be making well over £1000, easy money for little work.

Seems like a no-brainer, right?

The website is free to use, and lists parking spaces near shops, train stations, airports, city attractions and stadiums, but would you trust a complete stranger to park their car on your drive?

  • Depending on the car.. I'd love to see a nice Evo VIII every day. A multipla owner can look for another space to park in, preferably the next town over.

  • Definitely a good idea that could go a long way for some. But it just doesn't sit right for some reason.
