Summer is Here.
If you are getting away soon please check your breakdown cover. Many people use the breakdown cover that comes with your bank account. This often only covers the car and has a minimal recovery mileage. The clubs do some great deals to counter this problem.
It can ruin your holiday big time if anything happens to the car and you have to leave your caravan behind.
Don’t forget to check the wheel bolts are torqued to the correct setting before you set off for every journey.
Check your caravan / motor-home at least a week before you set off to allow time to rectify those small problems.
Have a great summer.

We still have some spaces for May but are booking up fast so make a call sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment
