Who wants to make money traveling? A lot of folks do, I bet. Well, I’ll be showing you how to bank a cool 15 grand (or more) every year traveling (driving to be exact).
WORK PART TIME, TRAVEL, EARN MONEY
Work part time, travel, earn money! Many people would love to easily make an extra five figures each year working part time. The problem:
- Working part time could mean an extra 3-5 hours daily chained to a desk
- Working part time might not be flexible
- Working part time would put you on a strict schedule or have other restrictions
Well, I’ve found the PERFECT part time opportunity that will let you start ASAP, is super flexible, rewarding, and put a nice chunk of change in your pocket. By chunk of change, I mean an EXTRA $15,000 OR MORE every year. Here’s how you can do that:
Drive for UBER!
DRIVING FOR UBER
Uber is pretty amazing. If you haven’t heard of it or don’t know how it works, in a nutshell:
- Sign up for Uber
- When it’s time for you to head to your destination, enter in your pickup and dropoff location
- Wait for pickup
- Get dropped off!
Easy peasy! So, it’s like a taxi service but the drivers are real people using their own car to pick you up.
The fares many times can be cheaper than cab fare. Pickup times tend to be pretty fast because if you are in an Uber city, there are likely going to be multiple nearby drivers vying for your business, competing to accept your request.
Uber is available in cities across the world. Where, exactly? See for yourself, here!
UBER PRO’S AND CON’S (from the Uber Drivers Forum)
- Meeting new people
- Ultimate flexiblity
- No boss hovering over you
- Seeing new things
- Ability to listen to music or news while working
This is just a handful of of the perks of driving for Uber. See them all here.
- No control over business/slow times of work/fares
- No tips
- No interaction with fellow employees
- Wear and tear on vehicle
- Little interaction with boss
Read all 709 (might be more at the time you read this) Driver reviews on Indeed to get more of a picture of the Uber-driver experience.

THE TRUTH ABOUT IT
How do I really feel about it? I’ll be honest, I haven’t had the opportunity to use the service myself. I live in an area that doesn’t have a lot of public transit so I own a car. I haven’t encountered any experience that I needed Uber or a taxi. My situation is probably different than most folks.
Here are some times where an Uber driver would come in handy:
- Late night drinks with the girls or fellas and you need a designated driver.
- Visiting a new city and you need a car to your hotel, airport, or friends house (or any place inbetween)
- Commuting to and from work
- Running daily errands without a vehicle available
- Needing a ride when your car is in the shop
I could go on and on. There are many opportunities for Uber. My hubby uses Uber OFTEN and my brother in-law has been a driver and had a great experience! Wanna hear about the money?
GETTING RICH DRIVING FOR UBER: THE MONEY PART
So, I mentioned early on that you can earn $15K yearly from Uber. You totally can, and even much, much more!
The average hourly rate for an Uber driver is $19.04 per hour. Working 4 hours daily for 4 days a week will earn you a wicked $15,841.28 per year! Not bad for extra income. You can work less or more so your annual earnings are subject to change.

UBER DRIVER AND CAR REQUIREMENTS
These requirements are subject to change and may be different at the time you are reading this so please refer here for the most updated requirements. At this time, a driver must meet the following:

- No marked vehicles

After you sign up, you’ll start a screening process. Here are some of the driver requirements:
- Must be 21 with at least 3 years of driving history
- Driver must pass a background check
- Driver must have a clean driving record (i.e. no fatal accidents, no DUI or drug-related offenses, no history of wreckless driving, etc.)
- In-state car insurance is required
- In-state drivers license required
To wrap things up, being an Uber driver is an AWESOME way to earn some extra money part time while traveling. I mean think about it, you won’t be chained to a desk, you’ll enjoy the freedom of traveling your city and surrounding areas, you get to meet new and interesting people, listen to music or news, and bank around $300/week (on average).
