Going skiing for Feb half term?
If you are going skiing for the Feb half term don't forget to pack your snow chains.
If you are in the French mountains and the snow chains signs have been turned on it is a legal requirement to put your snow chains on.
You can buy Snow chains online and Halfords sometimes stock them. You could wait until you get to the continent but you wont have time to test fit them.
Believe me you will be much better off trying to fit them before you leave, they are not the easiest things to handle. Much better to try at home in the dry on your drive instead of the first time in the snow by the side of the road.
Also check all the normal things before you go, tyres (tread depth and pressures), wipers and all your fluids. Better to spend 10 mins before you go instead of a couple of hours by the side of the road.
Best to also put full strength windscreen fluid in your windscreen washer bottle (also squirt the fluid trough the pipes) and ensure your anti freeze is concentrated enough to cope with the colder weather in the mountains.
Have a great trip and if you need tyres replaced before you go call 0800 783 93 10 and we will come to you.
