    Seems like a good idea to me,any thoughts on it ?

    Sounds fab. I would definitely give half my driveway up for some money... shame I don't live anywhere near anything useful...

    don't have a space on there but used one advertised on there - caught the eurostar from Kings Cross, was away for 3 days - £45 to leave the car at the NCP or £15 on a local church's car park - FAB !

    Used them once, in Fulham. Turned up to find that 'my' parking space had been taken by someone else! Parked on the road for the same price as the parking slot cost me. Took me some time & a few emails to get my money refunded.

    Others have had no problems at all, & I'm sure I'm in a minority, but be aware that if it's happened once it can always happen again.

    I did look at renting out my drive, but there's not many people in rural Wales that need a parking place for a day:roll:

    obviously you have to live near something that people need to park up to go and visit.
    If you live within walking distance of an airport or something like that, then you could probably make a fair bit. I've used a site like this to park near gatwick whilst on holiday.
    If you do it maybe make sure you have some sort of insurance in case a car gets nicked or broken into? If you didn't have insurance, i'm not sure if you'd be liable for the damage done as the car was on your property..?

    me too, could get 10 on our drive but there's nothing here except sheep & 2 piggies.

    I had thought of this as a business idea at one point...

    Beaten to it I think
