Make Money Renting Your Car Plus Your Car Gets Covered
RentMyRide is South Africa’s first neighbor-to-neighbor car rental platform. The website makes it possible for anyone to run a small side-business by renting out their own car.
RentMyRide is part of a worldwide movement called ‘Collaborative Consumption’ or the ‘Share Economy’. The movement’s poster child is Airbnb.com. This 25 billion dollar company makes it possible for anyone to turn their home into a hotel.
According to Peter Puren, CEO of RentMyRide, the sharing economy is a movement born not only out of necessity but just plain old common sense. “It’s time to start utilizing your assets to their fullest extent.”
RelayRides is the biggest neighbor-to-neighbor car rental company in the US and currently has almost 100 000 cars on their website. Drivy, which started in France and is rapidly spreading all over Europe, currently has more than 26 000 cars listed. Similar companies are thriving in almost all big cities around the world.
Car owners can now enter the South African car rental market, previously almost inaccessible to the man on the street. Owners can make anything from R2500 to R11 000 a month from a single vehicle.
Renters can save at up to 40% compared to regular car rental companies and they have the wider selection of choice.
Renting out your own car can be a daunting thought at first, but RentMyRide makes it easy and safe. Their 10 million rand insurance policy which includes 24/7 roadside assistance should put your mind at ease.
Renters create a profile on RentMyRide.co.za and then their details are screened. Car owners set the availability and price of their car. They then get notified when a renter requests a booking.
Owners control who they rent to and can accept or deny a booking request. Once a rental is complete, owners and renters can review their experience for future user’s benefit.
RentMyRide is launching in Cape Town and from there will spread out to form a nationwide network of car owners and renters.
One of RentMyRide’s early adopters, Mike made R42 000 last year renting out his car.
It was a year ago in the spring of 2014 when Mike Bunn was first introduced to an awesome new concept: earning side income by renting out your personal vehicle.
Mike was looking to start a small business, but wanted something that he can do in his spare time and would not interfere with his full time job as an accountant. He came across an ad by RentMyRide that offered to rent out your personal vehicle.
How did you decide to rent out your first car on RentMyRide?
After seeing that initial ad to RentMyRide, Mike recognized a great opportunity.
“At first I was a little bit skeptical about renting out my car to strangers, but looking at RentMyRide’s R10Million insurance policy gave me peace of mind. I thought I will first play it save and only rent out my older model 2007 VW Polo and see how it goes. The car was mostly out on longer term rentals to international volunteer workers and some overseas university students. The international renters were a bit more conscientious than the South Africans. One German even had the car polished before he returned it. After a few months I bought two more cars to rent out.
What are you using the extra income earned through RentMyRide for?
RentMyRide has been a great addition to Mike’s own paychecks. His side income of more than R9000 per month has been nice and steady, allowing him to meet two different objectives —building his own business, as well as having discretionary spending money to use as he pleases.
“I use the extra money for a variety of things…with all the price increases some extra cash always comes in handy. I have also recently spoiled myself a bit and bought a 700cc Smart Car to have some fun in over the weekends.”
As for building my own business, “I realized renting out cars is an easy way to start small and grow my business when I can afford it. Also all the terms and conditions, signing of contracts, the booking system and payment system are done by RentMyRide. They have a robust R10 Million insurance policy and also supply 24/7 roadside assistance and customer support. It really is personal car rental made easy.”

Since cryptocurrencies appeared and their price increased, scammers tried to take profit from it. Hacks, scams, and mysterious Initial Coin Offerings were the tactics used by crooks that wanted to steal others’ funds. Now, the country that is suffering from an important scam in South Africa, where more than 27,500 people, have been affected.
The Bitcoin investment group BTC Global has reported that R600 million in crypto assets have been stolen from the group’s investors.
South African Investment Group Scam
Investors from South Africa, Australia, and the United States have been affected by one of the most important Bitcoin hacks. According to local news sources, Steve Twain, the sole manager of the investments at the company, disappeared in February 2018 without mentioning anything about the funds. BTC Global’s administrative team wrote a post on Facebook two weeks ago explaining that they were not able to locate Twain.
At the moment, the South African Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) is working investigating claims against BTC Global. Mr Captain Lloyd Ramovha, part of the institution, confirmed that the Serious Commercial Crimes Unit is working side by side with the “Hawks.”
Some investors have reported very important sums of over $100,000. Individuals that wanted to invest in BTC Global, had to send their funds to a single wallet address.
Mr Ramovha commented:
“I have spoken to one of the investigators in our team and he has confirmed that this matter came to them about two weeks ago. There are in excess o 27,500 complaints with many outside South Africa. The amount is over $50 million and could rise as more victims come forward.”
When speaking with The Sunday Times, Antoon Botha of BMV Attorneys confirmed that they are working with several clients involved with BTC Global. According to Botha, they are planning to take legal actions against the company and its representatives.
“The investigation is in its infancy,” said Mr Ramovha. “I also cannot say whether it is a Ponzi scheme. BTC Global is being investigated for contravening the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act,” he said.
Cryptocurrency Risky Investments
But even when the funds have been lost, the company keeps explaining that cryptocurrency investments are risky and that investors should know what they were doing. As BTC Global works as any other fund, the risk of losing the investment are inherent, says an administrator at the company.
“Every single person who invested in BTC Global did so of their own volition and subsequent to having conducted their own research into the fund. As is the case with any fund into which money is invested there is no guarantee that an investor will be receiving any return on their investment.”
Clearly, investing in cryptocurrencies is a risky investment. The market is very volatile and it is not regulated yet. This situation is perfect for scammers to spread and steal investors’ funds.
All over the world cryptocurrency scams have been registered. Hackers have been stealing investors’ funds from cryptocurrency exchanges. Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) have never started the promised project. Finally, fake cryptocurrencies and platforms promising unrealistic returns, as BitConnect, have also been in the news.
Some time ago, Coincheck, a Japanese exchange, has been hacked and $500 million dollars in NEM coins were stolen. At the moment, NEM is working with the local authorities in order to track the funds.
As investors, it is important to be aware of these scams and to avoid not recognized sites and not professional businesses. Now, 27,500 individuals are trying to locate their funds, but tomorrow it can happen to any of us if we are not careful about the investments we do.

You may not know it, but online gambling is illegal in South Africa. Nevertheless, it’s a booming industry that is hitting licensed casinos hard.
The National Gambling Act of 2004 bans all “interactive” online casinos and games such as poker and bingo.
Numerous online gambling sites exist and some estimates suggest that tens of thousands of South Africans have active accounts.
The most popular online gaming platform in South Africa is Costa Rica-based “Realtime Gaming”.
Online gambling represents a massive loss in tax revenue and has the potential to slash visits to “land based” casinos. Online gambling in Europe, where it’s legal, has caused casino visits to fall by 20 percent.
Casino and horse-racing revenue fell by 0.6 percent in 2014. According to the National Gambling Board, gambling revenue totalled R21.8 billion while the industry paid R2.2 billion in tax.
Gamblers and operators face a maximum penalty of R10 million and/or 10 years in jail.
Looking for a small business idea? Here’s a list of 5 ideas to female entrepreneurs who are making it in their respective business niche.
Are you looking to earn some extra money on the side or to potentially start your own business?
Today I want to highlight some of the best small business ideas for women to motivate you to take that first step!
That’s not to say that men can’t pursue these ideas as well, but for today we’re honoring all the female entrepreneurs.
This list contains the businesses that I’ve seen women do exceptionally well with. As an added little bonus I’ve included some amazing women you can learn from no matter which business best suits you!
(And remember these are women just like you and me. They’re not celebrities, they’re not part of a get rich quick scheme. If they can build up amazing businesses you can, too!)
Making money through blogging is seriously like the best thing ever. It’s a wonderful feeling to get paid for your words and ideas.
To be honest, I recently just reignited my blogging spark after taking Elite Blog Academy (the best course EVER!! More on that later this month.) And since then my traffic has doubled and my blogging income is on a steady rise too.
Freelance writing is how I got my start in the online income earning world. Freelancing is the best way to make money FAST. (Here’s a complete guide on getting freelance blogging jobs.)
But as with every money making opportunity goes – your own mileage may vary!
Learn from someone who is now making good money from freelance writing and blogging services.
I mentioned earlier what a HUGE impact Ruth Soukup’s Elite Blog Academy has had on my blog in just one month.
Ruth has seriously created the best online course for blogging or writing that I have ever taken. And I’ve taken a lot of courses!
If you have something to teach get that idea out to the world. Create a membership site and start an online course. Learn as you go!
4.Affiliate Marketing/Niche Sites
Niche sites are simply websites that are focused on a particular topic and are monetized, usually through affiliate sales. (When you make an affiliate sale you earn a commission from the company you’re promoting.)
I’ve tried my hand at affiliate marketing with niche sites a couple times and miserably failed! That’s not to say it isn’t an awesome business idea. It is! And it’s also fun.
While my niche sites didn’t work out (read about that here) I still had so much fun building them and it was an amazing learning experience.
5. Website Management
Website management is a very diverse business and is actually something that I’ve ventured into rather than only freelance writing.
When it comes to website management you can do everything from sell ads, edit and schedule content, hire writers, promote on social media and more.
Since this is such a diverse area I wanted to highlight two women who are successful website managers but make their money in very different ways.
