November's iTravel Inspiration Winner 2022

15 December 2022

Ruth won our iTravel Inspiration prize for November and shared her experience of how BetterPoints has helped her to reassess the way she travels.

I first heard about BetterPoints through social media via BetterPoints directly. I signed up as I cycle to work and I try to be active with my children so I thought it sounded like a great way to track my activity.

Since beginning to use the app, I have been more aware of my journeys and I have used the bike a lot more. On a day where I may need to use the car due to practical reasons, it definitely highlights the difference between this and active travel in terms of enjoyment and ease, and it has made me think a lot more about the frequency with which I use the car. I particularly like how BetterPoints automatically tracks, and I find that it is a great incentive to earn points. Seeing my points balance increase is very motivational.

So far I have used my BetterPoints against a purchase at Argos so was able to reduce the price of what I was buying. However, I was planning on saving points up to be able to redeem against a treat for myself and my children, which I can do now with the 25,000 BetterPoints!
