Practical tips to help you improve your credit rating and avoid expensive high interest loans
One of the biggest expenses in day-to-day life is travel, whether commuting, on holiday or the school run.
Here are a few ways you can reduce your travel expenditure.
It might seem obvious but you’d be amazed how many people just let their insurance automatically renew each year.
More often than not, if you do this, your insurance will be costing more than it should (as insurance companies know that many people do not bother to shop around!).
Even if you like your insurer and you’re fairly happy with the quote you can often get it reduced by just calling and saying you’ve found a cheaper quote.

If you regularly shop at one of the big supermarkets you might find yourself with money off vouchers for their petrol stations and these usually offer the best prices, saving 5p a litre makes a bit difference.

It might not be as convenient as driving yourself but you could save a lot of money.
Sharing the school run makes enormous sense and would give you more time to get on with other things.
