Loyalty cards could help car insurance owners save on fuel

Saturday, 23 April 2011

Car insurance customers can save money on their fuel bills by using loyalty cards, according to the Association of British Drivers (ABD).

The non-profit campaigning group noted that in many supermarkets people taking advantage of loyalty reward cards can save nearly five pence per litre.

Hugh Bladon, founding member of the ABD, said: "Five pence a litre off is much better than the chancellor gave, which is one pence a litre off. The fuel duty, for many years, has been absurd."

He added that currently for a gallon of fuel, nearly 70 per cent of the cost is tax, with the added fuel duty and VAT on top of this.

Recently, What Car? revealed that car insurance customers can be paying nearly five per cent more per litre for premium brand fuel rather than cheaper equivalents, which performed very similar.

Editor-in-chief Steve Fowler noted that changing driving methods can help drivers get more miles from a gallon and be considerably cost-effective.
