Girls’ Guide to Motoring

About this project

Writing a guide for women about motoring on behalf of Continental Tyres - including various elements such as eco-driving and car checks. The focus was on saving money on your car and of course tyre checks was an element of that.


Money is tight – and in any event you can find things other than car repair bills and fuel to spend your money on. Motoring costs seem to just keep going up – in December 2012 comes a new ruling that means women will no longer get cheaper car insurance, so it is even more important to do everything we can to save the pennies.

In that spirit, Continental Tyres has produced this guide to show how easy it is to do basic car checks yourself and save money. It includes top tips for eco-driving techniques which can save you up to £300 a year in fuel.

It also covers advice on what to ask the garage and how to get the best deal – knowledge is power!

Don’t miss the section on projects to customise your car and make driving fun again – including a crochet pattern for some gorgeous vintage driving gloves.
