Which vehicle types earn the most?

For many people, renting your car out is about offsetting your car's costs while still being able to drive it when you want to. But if making a profit is your driving motivation, choose:

  • a van or ute with plenty of cargo space
  • within 5 kilometres of the city
  • in good condition
