As you may know, I rent out my drive using Parkatmyhouse. In the last nine months, I have made £501, and that’s not full occupancy either.
So when I heard about a car lending service I had to take a look, especially as my car has only done 20,000 miles in seven years so stays idle much of the time.
easyCar Club, from the guy behind easyJet was launched earlier this month.
The service provides a way to make money from your car when not in use, and also, gives a cheaper alternative to renting a car through Hertz or the like. Londoners trialled easyCar club for the past year, and found that they made an average of £1,800 per year (£150 per month), up to £3,500 per year!
I definitely like the idea …
We try to fly from Midlands airports whenever we can. We can get cabs or trains to a couple of airports and that is a lot less stressful than flying from London airports or Manchester.
But sometimes, you get more choice from the other airports in terms of where to fly, that’s when we discovered Sleep Park Fly for a very early flight from Heathrow last year.
We arrived the night before, had our dinner and went to sleep in a comfy family room. We got up at 3 am to board shuttle bus that took us to the airport. We left our car in the Premier Inn’s secure car park.
Today, I booked my second Sleep, Park, Fly stay. We need to be at the airport at 5.30 am, so would have to leave …
