Calculate Your Car Running Costs
As we know, owning and running a car is expensive, and if you find that you are using the car less and less as you get older, the cost of tax, insurance, servicing, MOT, repairs and fuel will be far greater than using public transport, or even a taxi.
For many people it may make good financial sense to use their money for other ways of getting about, instead of running a car, especially if they don’t drive very much.
RoSPA’s new Cost Calculator can help to estimate how much it costs to run a car and how much would be needed to spend on public transport. It then estimates how much money this would provide every month, or year, for three years to use for public transport.
