Winter

Of all the seasons, winter requires the most care and preparation if you're to stay safe and avoid a breakdown.

Breakdowns are more common during the winter months as lights, heaters and wipers put high demands on the car battery and road conditions can be really challenging, particularly when snow and ice strike.

We have extra patrols on call as the number of breakdowns nearly doubles during particularly cold spells.

Use our winter checklist to make sure you're fully prepared and think about buying winter tyres, particularly if you live in a remote area and have to rely on your car.
