The summer holiday is imminent. The south of our country starts on July 7, and from July 21 we all have summer holidays. Do you know where you are going? A week to relax in Ibiza, make a nice trip through Asia, enjoy the caravan to France or a nice roadtrip through Europe. If it is one of the last 2 options there are some extra things to take into account. In addition to all (travel) insurance, it is also important to prepare your car for the summer.
If you get stuck on the Route du Soleil you do not want the engine to overheat due to a shortage of coolant. And during your road trip across Europe you might also want to have a spare tire with you, just in case! Because with the warm weather and the long distances you drive your car will simply endure more than usual.
Therefore, below a number of points that you want to pay attention to before you go on holiday by car.
Take a holiday check
Do not think it is all right, so do not be stubborn and just do that summer check . With this you can prevent road breakdown and you do not want to save on this. During such a check, the following components are thoroughly checked:
- Tire wear
- Tire pressure
- Shock absorbers
- Windshield wiper blades
- Engine oil
- Brake fluid
- Windscreen washer fluid  Euromaster, one of the most important European players in the tire and maintenance market, uses nitrogen tire filling, which means the tires stay on for longer. The chemical properties of nitrogen offer large advantages compared to ordinary compressed air. Naturally useful when making a long journey.
Of course during such a holiday check which costs only EUR 13 at Euromaster, you can incur additional costs. But then you still prefer to take it in the Netherlands. The last thing you want is to end up in France or Italy with bad luck, and to be helped by someone who does not speak a word of English. Everyone has a knowledge or knows a story of someone who has paid too much for a repair abroad. So that summer check really does not outweigh all the possible inconveniences and bad luck you can get along the way. Do it!
