[TALK IN PERSON AND REMIND THEM]
Send them a text, or give them a call to meet up. Face-to-face conversation is the best, to observe body language and facial expression when you remind them about the money owned to you. This is for them to acknowledge the money was a loan, in case they misunderstood as a gift.
[OFFER FLEXIBLE PAYMENT]

Picking up or dropping off to airport, looking over pets during outstation or etc. In lieu of payment, deduct payment for services they provided from money they owned to you.
