Affordable Fuel in Snowdonia
We know that very often it's not the price of accommodation that makes a holiday un-affordable but more what will be spent during the holiday. This is especially true when there are children who need entertaining or who are being tempted by ice creams, attractions and gift shops. In this series of blogs we look at ways to keep the spending down by suggesting things that will help keep what you spend to a reasonable level and things that can be done for FREE.
One of the biggest expenses when driving around on holiday is the price of fuel.It tends to be more expensive in rural areas - further from the refinery. We've put together a list of places where it tends to be cheapest. They're probably not worth a special journey to buy fuel BUT if you are passing anyway then it might be worth topping up. Remember that most service stations are NOT 24 hour and we can't guarantee that these places will be cheaper.
Criccieth - Gulf Parciau Filling Station
Penryndeudraeth - Esso
Porthmadog - Tesco
Trawsfynydd - Essar
N.B. Although there is an Asda in Pwllheli, they don't have a filling station. Going as far as Caernarfon? Then try Morrisons. Out in Bangor? Tesco or Asda are worth trying or the Texaco(?) near Curry's / TK Max.
We're hearing from guests who've stayed during July that the price of fuel in Penrhyndeudrawth and Trawsfynydd is CHEAPER than they were paying at home.
