Changes to Consider When Driving Abroad in a Company Car

Changes to Consider When Driving Abroad in a Company Car

‚ÄčIf you are someone who isn’t keen on flying abroad for your holidays, driving into Europe in a company car can be an enjoyable and diverse experience when compared to a traditional week-long beach holiday. Not only do many European countries drive on the opposite side of the road, but legislation and driving rules have changed dramatically in the last couple of months, especially in France. With Brexit being a huge talking point in recent years, driving on the continent may have a bigger effect on travel than you think. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 41% of people... Read full article

The Question of Unreliable Cars

The Question of Unreliable Cars

Hyundai has been named the most reliable car brand according to the JD Power Survey 2018. With this subject trending in the industry, we thought we would question the conundrum of unreliable cars. Multiple surveys are undertaken every year to attempt to deduce which cars are considered the most unreliable, with data collection methods including asking car owners to rate their cars, recording how many faults are reported for the cars each year and examining the number of annual breakdowns. Such surveys include; the JD Power Survey, the Driver Power Survey and studies... Read full article

How Telematics Can Help Reduce the Cost of Running your Fleet

How Telematics Can Help Reduce the Cost of Running your Fleet

The notion of having a black box in a car is frankly, unappealing to most people. Aviva found that 49% of people claimed they would never install a telematics device into their vehicle. A new generation of telematics could take this to the next level. Some telematics systems provide driver coaching whereby your very own inanimate car has somehow found a way to backseat drive.  However redundant or irritating some of the features of a telematics system may be, they can be incredibly useful for reducing the costs of running your fleet. Some telematics systems are... Read full article

Spend Summer in a Convertible

Spend Summer in a Convertible

‚ÄčThis has been the driest start to a summer since records began in 1961, with just 47mm of rain on average having fallen so far nationwide so why not invest in a Convertible car to top up your tan and make the most of this endless sunshine? There are many positives to driving a convertible. The lack of roof gives drivers more visibility, making it easier to manoeuvre and park with a wider radius. This gives the luxury of more headroom to those that are above the average height and don’t want to be confined by a low ceiling. A further benefit of driving a... Read full article

The Final Checks Before the Checkpoint

The Final Checks Before the Checkpoint

  The morning departure for any driving holiday to Europe undoubtedly brings with it a last-minute packing panic. Everyone is scrambling to ensure that there is plenty of time left to reach the 5.00AM ferry that probably departs at 4.45AM. During this last-minute rush, it is more than likely that concerns will revolve around whether there are still three children in the back of the car or whether your father-in-law wandered off at the breakfast pit stop. The last thing that anyone should have to worry about is whether or not there is adequate documentation... Read full article

How To Get The Best Out Of In-Car Technology

How To Get The Best Out Of In-Car Technology

Over the years our cars and vans have become so much more than vehicles for simply getting us from A to B. From air-con and satellite navigation, to massaging seats and 3D surround sound systems, the 21st century automobile is nothing less than a mobile office, games, and living room in one. Inevitably, this leaves us with a multitude of options and features to decipher between when trying to pick the right car for your company fleet. In this brief guide, we’re going to take a closer look at three of the most popular features found among mid-range... Read full article

Classic cars for sale

Classic cars for sale

Over the past few years as investment returns have diminished in a world of low interest rates, the value of classic cars has rocketed. Maybe these vehicles are just museum pieces and like many masterpieces will seldom get an airing. If you’re rich and own a private stable I dare say you can gain a great deal of personal satisfaction stocking your metal behind closed doors alone or in the company of intimate acquaintances. But surely half the fun of having your money invested in rolling stock as opposed to the bank is that you want to flaunt it from time to... Read full article

Pros and Cons of Providing Company Cars to Your Employees

Pros and Cons of Providing Company Cars to Your Employees

Company cars offer a great many perks for staff, but just like with everything, they also come with their fair share of downsides. Not least is the task presented for the employer and employees in making sense of the tax system, but also the potentiality of racking up costs with high purchase prices and maintenance issues. But these cons aren't putting people off. As a study last year proved, showing that every year around half of all new cars sold in the UK are sold to companies for use as company vehicles. It all comes down to taking more care and... Read full article

Pollutions Exchange

Pollutions Exchange

Have you driven an electric car? I have. Tesla gave me the opportunity last year to get behind the wheel of a Model S. They said it would put a smile on my face and it did. The acceleration, speed and deceleration make you feel euphoric. Have you looked at the BIK advantages of driving a sports hybrid? Porsche sales of Cayenne S E Hybrid look good, creating a twelve month lead time on delivery. Mitsubishi delight in how popular a fleet proposition the Outlander PHEV has become. Government policy certainly seems to support the proposition that driving electric equals... Read full article

5 Practical Ways To Save Time as A Business Owner or CEO

5 Practical Ways To Save Time as A Business Owner or CEO

Where does all the time go? Well, if you go by the stats, nearly a third of the average CEO’s time gets sunk into email, another third into meetings, and just the final third into actually getting stuff done. Many of you will relate to this; the tedious back and forth email conversations, the many late starting and overrun meetings; what it all adds up to is a whole lot of wasted time and energy. Sometimes better planning and more detailed to-do lists just aren't enough to get the most out of your time. So we've taken it upon ourselves to share a few... Read full article
