During the festive period lots of people have to travel to go and see loved ones. It could be that you are going to spend the big day with friends or family or that you are planning on going to see them before or after. No one wants to break down or have issues with their car at any time but especially not at Christmas. The thought of spending Christmas time stuck on the motorway or on the back of a breakdown truck is not nice for anyone and although you cannot stop it from happening you can try to avoid the situation and be prepared should it happen.
Always make sure that you have adequate breakdown cover. Although in this country it is not law to have breakdown cover, you should if you are travelling a good distance and do not have access to a tow truck. It is often less than £10 a month and will give you peace of mind should the worse happen.
Be sure to keep your car well maintained at all times but especially coming in to the winter months when you are most likely to experience issues due to the cold weather.
