New research conducted by JET - one of the UK's leading fuel brands - can reveal that competitive pricing (51%), a good looking/well-presented site (50%) and clean, functioning toilets (44%) are the top three determining factors for women drivers when choosing which service station to visit.
The research, conducted online among 1000 women drivers 18+ and nationally representative in February 2023, can also reveal that 41% cited 'speed and convenience' as an important factor with 'safety/safe-environment' taking 39% of the votes with just over one-third of women drivers (37%) naming 'pay at the pump facilities' as an important decision making factor.
