What should you always have in the luggage compartment?

You know winter has arrived when windows ice up and door locks freeze. There are a few things you should always have to hand to cope with all eventualities:

Open luggage compartment

  • Ice scraper, brush and folding shovel – to remove snow and ice from your car
  • Rubber mats – to help you get going in an emergency
  • Woolen blanket – in case of long traffic jams or for use when fitting snow chains
  • Snow chains – to keep the vehicle moving even in extreme winter conditions.
  • Jump leads – to deal with starting problems or to help others.

How to maintain good visibility in winter

Driving in winter can present car drivers with many challenges - including freezing rain, heavy snowfall and thick fog. You can rely on the following advice to guarantee good visibility even in tricky situations:

Snow-covered windshield from inside

  • Drive with your lights on even during the day.
  • Wipe all the ice and snow off all windows and mirrors before starting off.
  • Clean the headlamps at regular intervals.
  • Only use the rear fog light if visibility drops below 50 m.
  • Make sure wiper blades are in good condition.
  • Place covers over the windshield and rear window of your vehicle when parked.
  • Keep the cleaning fluid and anti-freeze topped up in the windshield washer system
