Everyone is going on holiday by plane. Really? Not you though. You’re car fans who like to get behind the wheel and enjoy the feeling of independence that a car gives you at your destination. Car holidays are all the rage again. Decades after Germans discovered traveling south in their own car, the European continent is once again reviving the desire for long-haul trips. Whether you’re going all the way up or down, we’ll provide some useful tips on how your journey will become your destination.
The holidays are just around the corner, and it’s about time your car is taken for a good long spin after all the short-hop commuting. Your trusted mechanic has already checked the oil, coolant and brake fluid, but you won’t notice these things sitting inside your car anyway. Let’s therefore take a look around our luxury tourer once more and then get in the car, keeping our eyes peeled and noses open to make sure that the interior of our living room on wheels will be in tip-top condition for our grand trip to the far south or north.
Summer time – time for holidays. Months and months of hard work are finally interrupted by a trip to the sea or the mountains; everybody is longing to get away from everyday life and is looking forward to a few days off. And that’s exactly how cars get loaded sloppily, with everything just being thrown into them, and if there’s no more space left things just get strapped to the roof or loosely stowed away in the caravan. After all, what can go wrong? Actually, quite a lot. If you don’t load your car correctly you will put yourself and others at risk, have the car pointing at the stars, and dazzle oncoming drivers. This will make the first day of holiday really stressful, or even make you end up in a ditch.
