Motoring Reports

Money Matters

November 2016

Monthly car running costs vary from person to person, though our data reveals that, in general, men spend more on motoring than their female counterparts do. When asked how much they spend on motoring each month, including car insurance, motor tax, fuel, repairs and servicing, 20% of our survey respondents told us that they spend €120-150, 19% spend €150-200, 15% spend €200-250 and 14% spend over €300. 

A difference between the sexes was found, though, revealing that 20% of men spend €150-200 on average, while 25% of females average €55-199 per month.

TOP TIP: if you have an older car, your running costs could be much higher than they would be
for a newer model. It may be worth financing the purchase of a newer car.
