How to save on car running costs

Everyone’s talking about the costs of running a car. The price of fuel is heading sky-high, servicing costs are only getting more expensive and if you choose to park your car somewhere remotely close to the city, parking costs can be astronomical.

But there are ways for drivers to save, and many of them are available through the partners now on board with YouiRewards. We’ve worked hard to bring on more auto-related partners that are able to offer you great value on the road. Here are 5 partners that can offer you better value – including 2 recent additions and 3 of our most popular partners.

1. AutoGuru

Everyone hates the costs involved with car servicing. And often it’s hard to tell if you’re getting a good deal or just getting ripped off by a mechanic. You know it has to be done, but surely there’s a better way? That’s what inspired the team at AutoGuru to create a whole new, smarter way to look after car servicing. So how does it work? AutoGuru pulls together the details of local mechanics in your area from a pool of over 1600, lets you check out real customer reviews, and then book your service online. If you’re a YouiRewards member, you can lock in a discount at the same time. YouiRewards members can save up to 15% on their car servicing, up to a maximum of $300 a year. Now that really is a smarter way to do car servicing.

With AutoGuru, you get the reassurance that comes from seeing real reviews, plus the savings that come from being a YouiRewards member.  To find out more, check out the AutoGuru site

Plus they’ve got all the accessories you could need for both inside and outside your car like floormats and car covers.
