Looking for ways to supplement your STR income? Chances are, most of your Airbnb guests are renting a car locally to explore the area while they travel. Why not make extra money by offering YOUR car on a site like Getaround?
John William Johnson is the founder of Happy Healthy Long Life, an online store dedicated to products that promote health and wellbeing. He is also a veteran short-term rental host and runs a car sharing business through the site Getaround. John takes full advantage of his status as a digital nomad to travel internationally, often trading his pet sitting services for a free place to stay.
Today, John joins me to discuss the process of renting cars on Getaround, explaining how the service differs from Turo and sharing his tips for optimizing a business on the site. He reflects on his 10 years of experience with Airbnb, describing how he evolved as a host and why he’s phasing out his STR business in Portland. Listen in for John’s advice on becoming a digital nomad and leveraging the sharing economy to generate income!
