Apparently fuel prices have risen more than 140p per litre on average, so it's no wonder I feel poorer than usual at the moment.
I do try and find the cheapest forecourts to refuel at if possible, but more often than not I park at the closest petrol station, close my eyes, and fill up regardless of the price.
The way I see it is I have to fuel up anyway, so why stress myself about the cost when I can't do anything about it.
What I have been looking into, however, is cheaper van insurance.
comparethemarket.com's Director of Insurance Partnerships states, "While drivers can do little to save on fuel costs, they could potentially look at other ways to reduce the overall cost of driving and offset the fuel price rises.
"comparethemarket.com offers a quick and simple way to compare van insurance and could help drivers to find a better deal than they are currently paying. By switching to another provider, van drivers could make significant savings."
Yes, this is blatant self-advertising, but what the spokesperson is saying is true, although there are other van insurance comparison websites available,
By doing a price comparison on a website called iVan the other day, I found a quote that would save me about £200 on my annual premium. I'm definitely going to be getting it!
I thoroughly recommend doing a price comparison to all van drivers.
