One day car insurance can be cheaper than a train ticket!

Did you know that ‘one day car insurance’ can actually work out cheaper than buying a train ticket? Well, now you do.

The BBC recently published a news story about 27-year-old Tom, from London. Tom managed to travel from London to Bristol via a car he purchased on the same day, for less than a train ticket.

Read on for more details about how he did this…

Tom’s Story…

Tom managed to buy a car, tax it, insure it, and put fuel in it, and travel from London to Bristol, for a total of £208.61. Compared to a train ticket which would have cost him £218.10 (in peak times), he actually managed to save money! The car was a 1997 Honda Civic, which had 135,000 miles on the clock. He managed to purchase this for the absolute bargain price of £80.

Who would have thought that you could buy a car, tax it, insure it, put fuel in, and travel half way up the country for less than a train ticket?
