0

Wedding season is upon us, and that means one thing, travelling. Desi families clock up more mileage during wedding season than Lewis Hamilton does all season, and whats the best thing about travelling? The service stations, unless you are topping up for petrol which then works out more expensive than the”building fund” donation you will be making 2 hours later.

For the second year running, travel watchdog Transport Focus has asked customers for their views. Top of the list is Norton Canes on the M6 toll road, with a 100% satisfaction rating. Bottom is Thurrock on the M25, with just 68% satisfied.

In compiling the list, Transport Focus questioned 9,600 customers on key factors including staffing, food and toilet facilities. But while nine out of 10 users were happy with facilities and staff, a third said food and drink were poor value. And two-thirds moaned at rip-off fuel prices.
