COMMUTER SAYS NO   Stay safe and save cash with 10 cars that are cheaper than trains for UK commuters

NOT only is a car safer than a train for commuters as we fight Covid-19, it’s cheaper too.

Here are ten motors — including a brand spanking Renault Clio — that cost less to buy and run than rail season tickets across the country.

All are available on 48-month PCP finance with NO upfront deposit.

Let’s say you live in Bedford and work in St Albans. That’s a 67-mile round trip. You’re not cycling. And you’re not going to walk.

A monthly train ticket costs £308 compared to £133 for a 2017-reg Nissan Juke — saving £175 for fuel, tax, insurance and a Starbucks skinny cappuccino.

Christofer Lloyd, from online car supermarket buycar.co.uk, said: “With the Government advising commuters to avoid public transport, getting a car is the only option for many.

“Our research has found that financing and running a car can actually prove cheaper than taking the train — if you choose your car and finance carefully.”

I’d have that Clio.
