Based on yourparkingspace‘s driveway and other private parking space owners’ earnings of over £15million in 2018, you could be missing out on at least £325. With 45,000+ registered listings, the online marketplace turns empty spaces into cash. Although London, with its pricey parking rates, generated the most revenue, users in other cities experienced high activity. Covered in our parking article, some Greater London boroughs charge as much as £9.50+ per hour. The top 10 markets for yourparkingspace for 2018 were Manchester, York, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Leeds, Reading, Liverpool and Oxford.

Harrison Woods, managing director at yourparkingspace, comments on the platform’s increased interest. “In a time of economic uncertainty, it would appear that more-and-more Brits are realising they can make a tidy sum from renting out their driveway to needy motorists looking for somewhere to park.”

One cited example is how savvy drivers parked in the town of Crawley, near London Gatwick. yourparkingspace opens new parking opportunities, creating a competitive marketplace against private car parks.
