As sure as death and taxes, cars will break down. While it is inconvenient and stressful, it doesn’t mean you still can’t hold down a job to make money to fix the repairs. It will take some adjustments, but before you know it, you’ll be back on the road again.
Here are some options to consider:
Take Public Transport or Hire or Borrow a Car
If your car is only going to take a day or two to get fixed, jump on the bus or train. It may be easier than you think.
Some jobs rely on using a car to get to business meetings, so public transport isn’t going to cut it. Ring around all the local car rental and hire car companies. Some do fantastic weekly deals, and if you explain the situation, they may offer a further discount. Also, make sure to read all the fine print, so you know exactly how much you’ll be up for.
Ask around family or friends if they can loan you their car, until yours is fixed. Some families have a second car that is rarely used, so front up.
