London, UK (WHAS11)- Finding a hotel room in London is nearly impossible right now, so one taxi driver has come up with a solution for visitors.

"Hotel rooms are fully-booked or they're charged enormous amounts of money just to spend the night, and I thought my taxi's empty at night and put the two together," says taxi driver David Weekes.

It is called the Relax-a-Taxi.

 For just $75 a night, visitors can sleep inside Weekes' cab, parked outside of his London home.

 Weekes says he is hoping to earn a little extra money, since cab drivers are having a hard time making any money because of all the restrictions during the games.

 He says he has already had two guests, and four more people have made reservations.

"They said it was quiet, and they were just happy with it. I was a bit worried but no, they said it was fine," says Weekes.

As for the bathroom, Weekes says all guests have to do is knock on his door.
