Do you find yourself constantly putting money into your car? Below we take a look at some useful tips that could help you reduce your motoring costs and save some money.

Shop Around For Petrol

As petrol prices are slowly back on the rise again, one of the best ways to save money is by shopping around for your petrol. As mentioned in our recent useful apps blog, a handy app to check local petrol prices is pumps.ie allowing you to find the price and location of most petrol stations around the country.

Parking Apps

Although parking apps don’t actually reduce the cost of parking, they do prove useful. They ensure you aren’t forced into a more expensive off-street car park because you didn’t have enough loose change on hand. Parkingtag.ie is an app that allows Dublin drivers to pay for parking through their mobile. Parkmagic.net is a similar app that operates in Cork, Limerick and Ennis.

Tyre Check

Having the correct tyre pressure is not only essential for your safety, but having under inflated tyres can actually increase your petrol costs, as it burns more fuel. You may also find yourself saving money on tyre related mechanic expenses, as correct tyre pressure can make your tyres last longer.

Insurance

Finally, one of the best ways to reduce your motoring costs is to shop around for your car insurance. Luckily for you, we compare a number of Ireland’s leading insurers to get the right deal for you.
