London, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 December 2011
With the main Christmas shopping weekend fast approaching, the average Brit will spend around 600 pounds on Christmas presents for friends and family this year. In the face of the current crisis, the question of how to keep the wallet balanced, and not ending in the year in debt is crucial for most British residents.
Wimdu.co.uk, the online platform for private accommodation has a solution: people can rent out their room, apartment, house, or any other living space to earn some extra cash. While enjoying their Christmas vacation or New Year’s visits to the family, they could earn up to £400 for a weekend (depending on the size and location of their place).
Javier Bolle has been renting out his place on Wimdu for the last five months: “I am travelling a lot and offer my flat while I am away. I am amazed by how much money I can make in a very short period of time”, he says, “therefore I will also rent my place out for New Year's eve since I will be spending the time abroad.”
It only takes a few clicks to get the extra income: click on “List your space” on http://www.wimdu.co.uk and upload your property profile in a few easy steps for free. Once it is uploaded Wimdu does all the work for you. For help call Wimdu UK on 0207 831 6792. They will be glad to help you with all your queries.
