Many people like to celebrate the New Year in style by purchasing a used car in January. The analysis team at CAP Automotive have discovered that you could save yourself an impressive £500 by purchasing in December 2014, rather than January 2015.

Although this seems unconventional, and many people are afraid to spend large amounts of money during the Christmas season, CAP say that December buying is the cost effective way finish the year, driving around in style.

Retail and consumer specialist, Philip Nothard said: “For many of us the idea of spending more money in December might be particularly unappealing, but the CAP figures show that it can offer some genuine savings in the long term if it’s a car you’re after.”

The great estimated saving of up to £500 in the month of December, means that you can cover the cost of Christmas, with money to spare (figures show that the average UK adult spends £487 during the Christmas period).  Phillip said the following about official CAP statistics: “Our figures show that potential savings for motorists who bought last December instead of waiting until January were significant.”

Discussing the benefits of avoiding peak times, the CAP expert said: “The trick is to go against the trend and buy when other people aren’t looking for the same thing – and that means December can be a brilliant time to change your car.”
