Avoid paying extra for your petrol and make sure you don’t fall victim to the postcode lottery by buying smart

Tips to save money on fuel

It is well known that petrol prices are at an all-time high and are only likely to get higher. Since 2009 the average price per litre of unleaded petrol has increased by 60p.

But now it has become apparent that many motorists are paying the price of losing out in a postcode lottery with prices varying hugely between regions.

New research from Santander has revealed that some drivers pay more than £250 extra a year for their fuel.

The research involved analysing the average price per litre of premium unleaded fuel in every county across the UK.

The most expensive place to refuel was found to be the Shetland Islands, where fuel costs on average 145.9 pence per litre. Comparatively the cheapest place to fill up was Grampian in Scotland, with a price of 129.7 per litre.

A payday loan from PaydayUK could help you rebuild a poor credit rating

Stethoscope and Credit Report

Your credit rating is what a lender uses to help decide whether or not to lend you money.

Also known as a credit score; it’s created by your financial history and if your rating is poor you might find it is hard to borrow money.

It is not difficult to get a bad credit score as things often happen that are out of our control. If you fail to pay a bill on time, miss payments on debts or regularly change your address and job you may find yourself with a poor rating.

Having a bad credit score means it will be hard to get a bank loan for more long-term expenses such as purchasing a car or getting a mortgage.

To make matters worse defaulting on payments such as mortgages, credit card payments or utility bills will only do further damage to your credit reputation.
