Running a car at uni can make your life as a student much easier – from weekly food shopping to getting back home. But the costs of driving can price many students out of getting behind the wheel.
However, you can make it happen by being savvy about where to study. With every new uni year, we help students find car finance, so we delved into the data to find out who has it best – which cities are the most-affordable for students with cars in the UK?
Cities were ranked against five factors:
· University parking permit cost
· Road trafficnumbers (2020)
· Petrol prices
· Average car insurance quote
· Number of car clampdowns (2020)
