Cash calendar - tips for September

Buying a car and travelling by train can be considerably cheaper by considering a few simple tips, an advice service says.

The BBC News website asked the independent Money Advice Service to deliver a calendar of month-by-month tips for those trying to keep their personal finances in order.

Kat Hodgkinson, from the service, says that September is a good time to negotiate when buying a car, and there are potentially cheaper options when travelling on public transport.
