Car gadgets & storage

We have our hassle-free travel essentials listed here but there’s plenty more to think about.

Useful car checks before you set off include: check your fluids (coolant, oil, screen wash); don’t leave without your car jack and locking wheel nut key; check your tyre pressure on all tyres (including the spare); check your tyre tread for wear, cracking and bulging; make sure all your lights are working properly and check windscreen wipers.
