Long Journeys, the Importance of Planning Against Breakdown

By Tom Green Subscribe to RSS | May 10th 2012 | Views:

As warmer hues fret the clouds they signal the coming of summer, three long months of endless days and hazy horizons. Thousands of families will be roving over the country on their holidays, packing up squabbling rabbles of children and leashing loads of luggage to the roofof the car to visit the seaside or relatives for a weekend away.

Planning is essential. Planning supplies, a route and, all importantly a contingency plan in case of the unexpected.

Knowing your route helps ease your journey, knowing where you're going avoids the frustrations of getting lost and the inevitable map reading arguments commonly known for directing drivers attention away from the road.

Planning supplies will ensure that, in the case of a breakdown, you won't only have the tools you need to get going again and keep your family fed. By tools this can be as simple as making sure your mobile phone is fully charged to phone for your breakdown assistance. Keeping stocked with food and water as well will ease the wait as your family is stuck on the side of the road waiting for help.

Most valuable however is the benefit of planning ahead for breakdown assistance. However well you maintain your car there is always the chance of a breakdown and whilst making your longest journey of the year, in the hottest conditions and with the vehicle most heavily loaded, that potential breakdown is more likely when you're on your way to a holiday. Breakdown cover gives you a contingency plan and makes sure that you have help even if you don't know anything about cars or mechanics in the area.

Most breakdown cover deals will offer roadside assistance, and provide the option for more help depending on how much more you are willing to pay. You can browse varying packages to find your most suitable on price comparison websites such as

Securing breakdown cover means that, in the case of an emergency, all you will need is a quick phone call and help will wing it's way with minimal fuss. This is especially helpful when you are far from home on a summer holiday because, without breakdown cover you will be stranded needing to find local mechanics and struggle to sort it all out yourself.

Local mechanics are usually known to cost a lot more too; charging for call out, charging extra for a tow back to their garage and subsequently continuing to charge for any repairs or replacement parts you need. Mechanics are rarely known to supply replacement courtesy cars either, leaving your family stranded for the time being: not the best holiday.

Regardless of costs though; you can't put a price on your family's safety, the security and convenience of comprehensive breakdown cover is one of the best ways to plan ahead and make sure your family is safe on long summer journeys.
