One of the most effective ways of saving you money, and helping the environment, is if we all, as individuals, reduce the amount of travelling we do – and despite what you might think, this is actually quite easy to do with some of the small journeys we all make by car.
By cutting down on the number of journeys you make you can save time, money, stress, strain and bother. If you take a bit of time to plan your trips, you may find there are some journeys you don’t need to make at all, and pretty soon it will be second nature to reduce how much time – and money – you spend on travel. You can also explore car sharing as a way of reducing the impact of your travel on your wallet and the local environment.
