Winter Driving Kit List

By 26th January 2013Food for thought

Now that the weather is starting to turn, we recommend you gather a few items to keep in your car, especially for those longer journeys over the holidays – just in case.

Below are items that should be in your emergency kit:

Ice scraper and de-icer
Torch and spare batteries – or a wind-up torch
Warm clothes and blankets – for you and all passengers
Boots
First aid kit
Jump start cables
Food and a warm drink in a thermos
Shovel
Reflective warning sign
Road atlas
Sunglasses – the glare off the snow can be dazzling
Mobile phone charger

You may also want to consider these additional items if you’re travelling in poor conditions:

Snow socks
Chains
