Driving home for Christmas could save Brits nearly half compared to taking the train

New investigation reveals of the cost of hiring a car to get home for Christmas compared to taking the train

  • ​​​​On average, a group of four can save nearly half (48%) on their journey home and as much as £1002 each by renting a car rather than taking the train
  • More than half (56%) of journeys are cheaper by car than by train for a group of four people
  • Veygo by Admiral is one of few companies in the UK to offer car rental to under 25s

A new study from car sharing specialist Veygo by Admiral has revealed that Brits heading home for Christmas this year could save almost half on their trip home by travelling by hire car rather than by train.

With December already an expensive month, savvy consumers could save up to £100 by ditching the train this Christmas and renting a car with friends or family to get around instead.

Veygo researched 50 popular journeys across the UK, based on four people travelling between December 20th and December 27th to reveal that 56% of journeys are more expensive by train than by hire car.
