3) Rent a Friend
Rent a Friend is a website where you can sell your “friendship.” in various forms. We noted that some people basically need a person to show them around town. Since you can accept or reject any friend requests and charge what you like, you can essentially sell your services as a tour guide on Rent a Friend. Knowing the main aspects of your cities history, culture, geography, main buildings, politics etc. as an “informed local” is essential. Instead of designing a “concept tour” (as you do with Vayable), you set up an individualized itinerary according to each visitor’s interests. Rent a Local Friend charges a $100 annually. Travelers pay 30% of the tour price on the site and 70% to you at the end of your tour.
