Cutting the costs of car use

Some journeys are more convenient by car, when driving there are things you can do to make the journey more cost-effective.

Car sharing

Drive to work with a colleague or alternate driving and you can reduce your fuel costs considerably.

Car-pool with two or three other colleagues and you’ll reduce your costs even more.

Car sharing isn’t just for work days

Travelling to social events or shopping, car sharing will save you money on travel and parking costs, reduce the amount of time you spend driving, and give you some company for the journey.

Car sharing isn’t just for drivers

You don't even have to be a drive to car-share. For lots more information, visit – then enter your details and find people in your area you can car share with. It’s a completely free service. Or, if you prefer, you can give us a call on 08700 111 119.
