More than three-quarters of drivers in the UK will be reliant on their car over Christmas, a new survey has revealed.
People in Northern Ireland will depend most on their car over the festive break, with 94 per cent of respondents needing their vehicle, the survey of 2,000 people by Honda UK has found. This was followed by 85 per cent of those in the East Midlands, the South West and Yorkshire and the Humber. Those in London are the least reliant on their car, with just 28 per cent getting behind the wheel at Christmas time.
The most common number of trips that Brits plan to make is between four and six, covering a distance of less than 50 miles.
Sixty-four per cent of those spoken to will be travelling with presents over the Christmas, with 47 per cent driving with either food or shopping on-board. Just 24 per cent will be driving over the Christmas period with pets, too.
A quarter of people will be listening to a Christmas playlist while on the road, with Gen Z drivers most likely to listen to a festive soundtrack during their journey. Fourteen per cent of drivers admitted to arguing with family members while travelling during Christmas, too.
