Getting a car after training

Discussion in 'The ARRSE Hole' started by Billboard, Jun 28, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone think it is worthwhile for someone out of basis to get a new car. If so is there really any need or chance to use it except for travelling home.
  2. basis? or basic?

    where will u be travelling to/from?
  3. Basic. And i live in london and want to join RRF so would be based Tidworth or cyrpus.
  4. Billboard.

    Comes down to several key questions....

    Can you afford it?

    Can you maintain it?

    Do you really need it?

    In Phase 2 (depending where you go) I'd imagine there is scope to drive home, or go for road trips. And it will certainly come in handy when moving to your next unit.

    If you have a car, you can go halves on petrol if people live on route.
  5. fuel costs
    car upkeep
    car purchase

    driving in london - congestion charge

    or 10 pound rail card

    long way to drive from cyprus
  6. car is good but if you get one you will have to sell up if you go cyprus because you will not need a car in england then your losing money on the new car best bet buy a shit one not new not old
