Advantages: save your money with the vouchers, handy for the loo
Disadvantages: can cost you an arm and a leg
The motorway services all vary these days, but personally we always use the granada services when ever we can. This is because of the special offers that are available to get reductions in meal costs at the motorway services.
Every time we have a trip planned, I go off on my hunt for money off vouchers, and I always get them, with out fail, every single time.
If you spend hours driving on the motorway and forking out for the over priced food, just check this out first. Go to www.g-wizz.net click on the shopping button on the menu, then at the bottom there is the coupons now big yellow button, if you go in there today they have special offers for granada service stations- burger king (buy one get one free) little chef (familly meal deal) fresh express (buy one get one free), you print these out and they are valid all year round. Obviously people on their own would not benefit much unless they were famished.
Another bit of advice, if you do not want to pay the silly price for a coffee, go to the garage shop where you will get a coffee at half the price.
In general all the motorway services offer roughly the same facillities, toilets, picnic areas, areas to walk your dog, shops, places to eat, games and bank machines, and who could forget those RAC or AA men who seem to live at these places.
We do need these places, stopping regular is a must on a long journey and it is mainly thanks to service areas that we can.
I`m glad we have them.
