Here’s How To Drastically Reduce Your Motoring Costs

It’s an expensive time to be a driver in the UK. Fortunately, there are relatively simple ways they can reduce their motoring costs…

Don’t be Loyal when it comes to Car Insurance

Car insurance can significantly add to our motoring costs. Until recently, car insurance providers could impose what was, essentially, a ‘loyalty tax’ on their customers. Subtly ramping up prices of long-standing customers. Whilst this practice has been banned, it still makes sense to shop around before the point of your policy’s renewal. Try to get at least three quotes before making a decision, and only pay for coverage you need.

Keep on Top of your Vehicles Servicing and Maintenance

Visits to the garage can be expensive, there’s no denying it. However, neglecting those visits can actually lead to increased motoring costs in the long-term. Why? Because keeping on top of faults and complications, before they can become really serious, is cheaper and less stressful. Look after your car if you want to look after your wallet or purse.

Think Critically about your Driving Style

How we drive has an enormous impact on the state of our vehicles and what they can cost us to run them. How we drive, whether smoothly or erratically, can have a profound impact on fuel consumption and the wear and tear parts and components face. So, keep things smooth, obey the Highway Code and avoid speeding if you want to avoid wasting money.

Eliminate Needless Journeys or Consider Alternatives

We live in a car-dependent society, in which millions of us need our cars to access our places of work or important public services. That said, there are sometimes alternative options and they should be explored. The coronavirus pandemic demonstrated that a lot of meetings can be conducted effectively online, rather than face-to-face. Public transport, cycling or walking might also be more appropriate than always taking to the wheel. Finally, car sharing with colleagues can be a great way of reducing fuel bills.

Shop around when Refueling

Fuel prices are at an historic high in the UK and other countries around the world. There’s no magic solution to this, but it still makes sense to shop around. As a general rule, supermarkets generally offer lower prices than independent retailers. Think about what your options are and keep an eye on the prices they’re offering.
