Calculator Terms & Conditions

We’ve done our best to give you a calculator that helps you understand time and money spent commuting, but the figures are indicative only and based on general assumptions. We’ve explained below the figures and formulas to get to the final figures. Oh and there is no inflation included in the calculation.

The current annual journey time is calculated on the total return journey time entered x 232 days (based on a 5 day working week x 52 minus 28 days (20 days statutory holiday + 8 bank holidays)

The current annual journey cost is calculated on the total monthly cost entered x 12 months

The lifetime commute time is calculated on the total annual commute time x the number of years left until retirement (set at 68 years)

The lifetime commute cost is calculated on the total annual commute cost x the number of years left until retirement (set at 68 years)

‘Model’ used for comparison is the Piaggio Liberty 125 OTR price £2,599 as of 01.03.17

Official WMTC (World Motorcycle Test Cycle) fuel consumption for Liberty 125 is 40km/l or 113mpg as of 01.03.17

Fuel costs are calculated on the national average* unleaded fuel cost of 120.15 pence per litre (*as of 01.03.17)

Annual cost comparison is calculated on outright ‘Model’ purchase (divided by 5 years, assuming like-for-like model replacement every 5 years at the OTR price of £2,599), plus annual road fund licence at current rate of £18 per annum, plus £50 per annum CBT allowance (based on approximate price of £100 for a 2 year CBT), plus annual return journey distance x official WMTC fuel consumption

Lifetime cost comparison based on Annual cost x number of years left to retirement assumed at aged 68

The annual comparison time is based on a return journey and is calculated using Google Maps default algorithm, excludes motorway routes and is based on the most direct route. The route calculated does not take into account for diversions, road closures or any other unforeseen circumstances that would prevent the most direct route form being used

Lifetime journey time comparison based on Annual comparison time x number of years left to retirement assumed at aged 68
