I cannot believe that it is cheaper for a hire car to be used instead of MMA to get someone to a course if they are willing to take their car! Even if the hire car does cost £20-30 a day, the tank needs to be left full so the petrol is the same. The reason I'd rather take my car is so I'm not stuck in ANOTHER barracks for ANOTHER weekend while on course when I've family 2 hours away by car, but two taxis and a three hour train journey at £35 plus taxis to get there! It's kinda nice to get out in the evenings too. The need for non-availability of transport should just be shoved somewhere the sun doesn't shine so that people on course in the UK have freedom to use their own vehicles on course without having a financial penalty for doing so.
