Posted by:AutoMoney

save travel costsTravelling to and fro can be quite costly. Whether it is for work, visiting family, or for another reason, we have a few top tips to try and help you save money!

Car share

If you work near a colleague that you get on with and trust, it is worth considering a car sharing scheme. You could take it in turns to drive on a daily or weekly basis. Consider this, if you end up car sharing with one person, you will cut your driving to work and back in half each month. That could save you a lot of money! 

Petrol or diesel?

It is important to considerer your needs when purchasing a car – if you have to drive long distances, it may be better to go for a diesel car. Although diesel is more expensive than petrol on the forecourt, it is more economical on longer journeys, such as motorway driving. However, if your daily driving needs are more suited to start and stop journeys, or town driving, petrol may be the better choice for you. 

Go public

Check out the local public transport around where you live, work or need to go. Public transport is very often a cheaper alternative to driving, and you might be surprised to find how many public transport options exist to get you where you need to be!
