Despite South African petrol price dropping to R13.79 per litre – 0.97c cheaper than what it was a year ago – South Africans still face an uphill financial outlook with a lagging economy.

Most South Africans spend 20% and more on transportation costs each month, StatsSA estimated in 2017.

We found that Discovery Insure offered the highest saving at a possible 50% back per litre – R6.89 at current fuel price levels – but consumers need to have their vehicles insured through Discovery first. 

Click and Pick n Pay both gave 10c savings per litre for those with membership cards. It is free to become a member at each one of these retailers loyalty schemes. Pick n Pay has a 20c per litre savings promotion until the end of March. 

Possible savings were calculated according to the January South African petrol price of R13.79.
