Drivers more reliant on cars than ever during pandemic

Drivers more reliant on cars than ever during pandemic

A third of UK drivers say having access to a car is more important than ever following the coronavirus outbreak. Click here to read the full Fleet World story.

Research from the RAC shows the increasing reliance many drivers have on their cars to help complete essential journeys, with three-quarters (75%) saying they use the car for permitted food shopping, 28% saying they use it to get to pharmacies, and a fifth (18%) needing the car to provide care or help to a vulnerable person. A fifth (20%) also say they use the car to get to work as they are in a role where they can’t work from home.

While 9% of drivers say they still need their car most days, the majority say they are now using their cars once a week or less (60%) for essential trips – likely indicating that more of us are now reverting to a weekly or fortnightly ‘big’ shop for groceries to minimise the time we’re spending outside the home.

Green Motion's global car and van rental franchise network is ready to provide vehicle rental whenever it is required, from over 450 operational locations across 47 countries worldwide, whether it be for key workers making essential journeys, or, once restrictions are lifted, for customers choosing a well earned 'drive & stay' vacation in their country of residence in order to avoid air travel, and of course for those international business and leisure travelers worldwide once the pandemic is well and truly behind us all.
