Aside from a property, buying a car is one of the biggest financial decisions you will have to make. As a cautious and considerate person, it’s good to investigate all of your vehicle financing options. Rent-to-buy car finance plans work well for a number of people. If the below describes your current situation, then you will benefit the most from a rent-to-own vehicle finance plan: People who are Blacklisted Everyone makes mistakes and it’s possible that you have found yourself in a tough financial spot. If you have been blacklisted or have a less-than-appealing credit history, then a rent-to-buy car finance plan is ideal for you because companies like Earn-A-Car (who offer rent-to-own financing) don’t look at your credit history at all. We don’t even do a credit check! What matters is your current financial situation and whether you can meet the minimal monthly requirements. People who want Flexibility... read more
If you are in the market for a vehicle, then you are probably considering all of the easy vehicle finance options that are available to you. It is not always easy to calculate which option will cost you more in the long run because many financing institutions highlight certain low-deposit offers or cash back deals that can cloud your judgement. Here are a few tips to keep in mind if you want to save money on your car: Consider a Pre-Owned Vehicle Many rent-to-buy companies offer a wide range of used vehicles. If you partner with a company like Earn-a-Car for example, you can rest assured that the pre-owned vehicles have all been inspected by qualified professionals. We never compromise on safety, which is why all our vehicles are roadworthy and rented in the best possible condition. For your own protection, as well as ours, we will provide you... read more
March and April are usually filled with long weekends and of course, the Easter holiday. This is the perfect time of year to take a road trip with your friends, family or loved ones. Here are some of the best road trip destinations for your Easter holidays: The Garden Route The Garden Route in the Western Cape is renowned for its picturesque scenery, pristine forests and beautiful landscapes. It consists of a 200 km stretch that passes through Knysna, Mossel Bay and Plettenburg Bay. If you enjoy hiking, mountain biking or camping, then this is the ideal road trip destination. Be sure to check out the guided tours to see the elephants near Knysna. And, if you’re a bit more adventures, why not bungee jump off the Bloukrans Bridge! The Waterberg The Waterberg region in the Limpopo province is much closer for people who live in Gauteng. A mere... read more
Are you in the market for a bakkie or a family car? Unlike a zippy city car or the latest sports model, a bakkie or a family car is quite often a necessity. Whether you need the vehicle for work or to transport your family, you may be struggling to move forward with the purchase if you aren’t able to get vehicle finance. In South Africa, it is becoming increasingly harder to obtain loans from banks. A less-than-perfect credit history or a lack of a credit history can make a bank wary of lending you money. Rent-to-buy car plans are the ideal solution in this case. With rent-to-own plans for bakkies and family cars, you will only require: A minimal down payment Proof of income to get approval. At Earn-a-Car, we don’t even look at your credit history or do credit checks – our deal is assessed on what... read more
Show yourself a little care with a Rent-to-Own Car Plan Are you constantly battling the public transport system, having to ask your friends and work colleagues for lifts, or paying exorbitant taxi and Uber fees? Then it’s time to seriously investigate alternate options to get you to where you need to be. Not everyone can access vehicle finance easily and quickly. If you have a less-than-stellar credit record, you may find it almost impossible to get a reasonable car finance deal from a bank. Rent-to-buy vehicle finance plans are another option that you should consider. With a rent-to-own deal from Earn-a-Car, all you need is proof of income, the ability to make an upfront payment of approximately R16 500 that includes your first month’s instalment depending on the vehicle you choose and be able to meet the monthly payment of between R3 000 and R5 000 along with... read more
If you are considering a rent-to-buy vehicle financing plan, congratulations! This is your first step in the right direction if you are looking to own a set of wheels. Here are a few steps on how to go about getting a rent-to-buy car: Research Different Companies Not all rent-to-buy vehicle financing companies offer good deals. Read the fine print, check out their references and testimonials, and browse a few sites to see what other people are saying online about the company. Find Out If You Meet the Requirements Different rent-to-buy companies will have different administrative and financial requirements. At Earn-a-Car for example, you will need to submit proof of income, be able to make the R3 000 – R5 000 monthly payment and make an upfront payment of R16 500 which includes first months payment. Make sure you’ve got all the requirements met before you choose your car. Inquire... read more
In South Africa, everyone needs a set of wheels. With the current economic crunch, an increasing number of people are opting for rent-to-buy car plans. One of the main advantages of choosing a rent-to-own plan is that you don’t have to jump through hoops to get a loan from a bank. Instead of getting a vehicle finance loan from a traditional financial institution, you can easily sign up for a rent-to-own agreement and achieve significant savings compared to other options (like taking an Uber to work every day or renting a car). With rent-to-buy vehicle financing plans, you’re not locked into a long-term contract and you can buy yourself out of the contract if your situation changes in the future. The way that these plans help you to buy a car is that you end up owning the vehicle after a fixed period. Earn-a-Car is the leading rent to... read more
Times are tough! Therefore, a lot of South Africans are having to apply for debt review or bankruptcy in order to get their finances under control. As hard as it is, this is actually the first step towards making your monthly finances more manageable and rebuilding your credit record. How do you improve your credit record while you are recovering from bankruptcy though? And what if you also need a new car? Even though it sounds impossible, our car finance deals at Earn-A-Car can actually help you improve your credit rating while getting you on the road again. A High Chance of Approval with Rent-To-Own Financing a new car is just about impossible if you have a low credit score rating. This is because you do not carry enough trust with the banks. If you really need a car, this is definitely possible if you choose a rent-to-own plan... read more
When you’re living in South Africa, having access to your own vehicle is not just a luxury – it is a necessity! But what happens if you have a bad credit record? It is not easy… And very disheartening. Most financial institutions will turn you down for motor vehicle finance in South Africa if you don’t have a good credit record. The rejection is hard to face, especially if you’re desperate for wheels to get you to work and back! Luckily, Earn-A-Car has a solution that ensures that you are mobile and on the road in your very own car. And, best of all, you can be approved – even if you are blacklisted! What Is Earn-A-Car? Earn-A-Car, unlike traditional car financing, is great for people who are buying a car while blacklisted – since you are more likely to be approved. This is because we retain ownership of... read more
Whether you have applied for car finance while you have a bad credit record, or whether your credit record is in a healthy standing, one thing will always be true: keeping your car in tip-top condition will save you money and keep it running beautifully. Neglecting to take care of your car’s basic maintenance is a big no-no! Worse, it can lead to expensive servicing costs if you’re not careful! Many car finance deals will stipulate that you take your vehicle to an approved RMI dealership for its services. While this is a great idea as it ensures high-quality workmanship, there are some simple things you can do yourself to maintain your car. Here are a few maintenance tips to ensure that your vehicle is kept in the best shape possible: Prevent your car from overheating Your car’s engine needs to be kept cool and well lubricated to ensure... read more

I would like to take this opportunity once again to thank you guys for the excellent service I receive!!!!

Eerstens wil ek se: DUISENDE DANKIES vir 4 jaar se PUIK diens wat ons van julle ontvang het. Ons kon altyd op julle reken, dag en nag. Julle was altyd net n foonoproep ver. As ek ooit weer n voetuig moet huur sal dit defenitief WEER by julle wees en ek sal julle sterk aanbeveel by enige iemand wat daaraan dink om n voertuig te huur.
Geen probleem is ooit te groot vir julle nie, geen moeite te veel nie en geen tyd ooit te laat nie. Julle was ALTYD vriendelik en geduldig.
My hart was seer om die Golf terug te stuur na julle toe maar so kom alles aan n einde….
Nogmaals BAIE DANKIE en strekte vir julle.

Easycarsrental ( Earn a Car) has made it possible for me to have a car. I never thought of this before, because i was always turned down. I remember that word, "Unestablished Credit record"
In March 2009, I got a job after a long time of unemployment. One of the requirements was that I must get a Car, I started applying for cars in different car sales and was turned down all the time because I was blacklisted. I was on the edge of losing my Job until I saw the website www.easycarsrental.co.za, I submitted my information online and was contacted within few hours. That was impressive but I didn’t know the outcome, I was scared that they might not give me a car because of my record. My Car was approved within few hours on the 10th of June 2009 and I got the car same day. I was relieved that the installment included Insurance, tracker and cash back. Easy Cars ( Earn a Car) is reliable and affordable, their dealing is honest and transparent.
Thanks to staff and management for their support and service 24 hours.
