As part of my husbands job he has to drive a lot and it got me thinking about things that would be really useful to have if you're a frequent driver.
Here are my top 5 must haves.
I think the most important thing to do when you drive a lot is to properly maintain your vehicle, small things like checking your oil level and making sure your tyres are within the legal limit can really help you to stay safe on the road especially as winter creeps in. If you find that your tyres do need replacing you can order new ones online from websites like Point S it has a wide variety of car tyres in all sizes and from all the top brands available at the best prices, so you can check them out and book car tyres online along with tyre fitting appointment at a time of your convenience from your nearest Point S depot.
My next must have item is this Emergency Mobile Phone Charger, this costs just £4.99 but could be worth it's weight in gold if you break down and realise that your phone has run out of battery, it uses an AA battery to give your phone 2 hours' worth of charge which would be plenty for making some quick phone calls to get help.
Another essential item for in the car is a torch however don't you just hate it when you keep a torch in your car only to discover that when you actually need to use it the batteries have died which they tend to do when left in a cold car. This torch doesn't have that problem though, this is the Spotlight Rechargeable LED Vehicle Light which plugs in to your car to keep it charged and ready to use at all times.
With winter approaching fast my next must have item is a blanket but not just any blanket, this is a heated car blanket which plugs into your car and keeps you nice and snug in case you breakdown in winter, I definitely want one of these.
My final item is something I've needed but not had in the car before and I've learnt my lesson, an ice scraper is essential in winter and if you're out late at night and then get back to your car only to find it's covered in a layer of ice you're in trouble if you don't have one. I prefer the ice scrapers with an insulated glove as they keep your hand toasty while you're scraping.
So there you have it my top 5 must haves if you're a frequent driver, hope you found it helpful.
