Foreign holidays may be tricky at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you cannot have a great summer staycation!

Get Ready for a Summer Staycation

Here are some top tips for the perfect summer staycation.

Make sure your car is roadworthy

It’s worth getting your car checked over before taking a journey so you know it’s roadworthy. As well as a service, consider an Air Con Check, which will help you keep cool in the hot weather, and a Tyre Check, which will ensure sure your tyres are safe.

Maximise your packing space

Cars only have so much space inside, so it can be challenging to pack everything in while keeping passengers comfortable. A Roof Box is a great solution, providing extra space on top of the car.

If you are taking your bikes, a bike rack is another space-saver. A bike rack is simple to install and if you choose a tow-bar mounted model you can leave the roof clear for a roof box.  A rear-mounted rack is another option, but not suitable for every car.

In-car tech installed

You can beat the traffic and get there safely with the right in-car tech. Combine a sat nav with a dashcam for the ultimate driving experience. You can also keep the kids entertained with an in-car DVD system.

Prepare for the perfect camping experience

Camping is a great way to get out of the house and enjoy beautiful surroundings. A bit of prep work makes your staycation even better! Start with sorting out sleeping: tents are available in a range of styles, shapes and sizes.
