Car Breakdown Insurance
When travelling in the winter here
are a few tips:
Check your oil, water and
windscreen fluid levels, battery before you depart. Make sure you
have a Mobile phone with hands free kit - take a note of your car breakdown
insurance number and other important contacts, also take with you:
De-icer and Scraper
A shovel for snow
Suitable gloves, warm garments and a blanket for when its cold
A bag of sand or grip mat
Map (or sat nav!)
Tow and battery-jumping cables and
First aid kit
A flask of hot coffee or Tea or Water for Cup -a-soup.
Print off your route before you go, I can recommend
for maps, directions, travel distances. It also has hotels
so you can check out where you can stop en route loads of other travel
Never drive when you are tired !
Always try to share the driving if you are going long distance and
take regular breaks. Check
road conditions before you leave on your journey and
lastly always check your fuel!
Happy Driving and a Safe Journey!
