Easter 2018: Holiday car travel tips.

Blog post Easter 2018: Holiday travel tips and general advice. Easter is much like a second Christmas break for many of us: religious associations aside, it’s the line-up of Good Friday and Easter Monday bookending the weekend, along with the Victorian school holidays starting, that sends a lot of people out of town for a decent four-or-more day break.

A brand new car? Or a used car? It’s your choice.

DABAS blog post early 2018: A brand-new car? – or – A used-car? its your choice; . . . That’s is the big question, you have probably heard how a brand new car loses value the instant you drive it out of the car-yard.
