Is your car as cheap to run as you think? It is often very easy to overlook the real cost of running a car. As well as the cost of fuel, there are all the hidden extras such as car tax, car insurance, MOT test, breakdown cover, servicing parts and repairs. You may never have considered car sharing, however you could halve your fuel costs, reduce stress and CO2 and make new friends.
The ideal car sharer could be sat in the next office or classroom and you have no idea! We are currently considering an initiative to promote car sharing within the college. You never know…it could be you!
