With the summer months fast upon us, Land Rover has created a range of products, vehicle health checks and an indispensable guide to driving in Europe in preparation for 2012's holiday season.
Last year, 1.1 million British motorists travelled through the Channel Tunnel with hundreds of thousands more crossing by ferry. With ever-changing driving laws which vary from country to country, Land Rover has created a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the rules and regulations of driving in Europe. For example many motorists are unaware that it is illegal in Germany to run out of fuel on an Autobahn and that car drivers must give way to bicycles in Denmark. A new rule that will affect every single motorist arriving on the shores of France is the legal enforcement to carry single-use breathalyser kits in their cars from 1st July 2012.
Land Rover's The 2012 Guide to Driving in Europetakes the guess work out of legal requirements of driving throughout Europe covering 18 countries including Austria, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, and Portugal. The guide is free to download at: http://www.landroversummer.co.uk/.
Land Rover dealerships across the country will be offering a vehicle summer health check for its customers as the prospect of longer journeys and higher temperatures ensue. Giving customers the peace of mind that their Land Rover is 100% ready for adventure, expert technicians will check lights, brakes, tyres, exhausts and fluid levels. In addition, the friendly staff at customers' local dealerships will be able to offer products and services, all of which take the uncertainty out of summer driving, including Navteq satellite navigation updates, Trackstar Vehicle tracking, Land Rover Insurance, Extended Warranty and Roadside Assistance.
In time for the summer months Land Rover's extensive range of genuine accessories provide the ideal complement to any get-away whether it be a trip to the beach with surf boards on a genuine Land Rover roof rack or a tow bar taking advantage of Land Rovers' exceptional towing abilities. From exterior styling additions, interior enhancements including iPad™ holders to entertain the children to a range of alternative alloy wheel designs, there is plenty of options available to tailor your Land Rover to your holiday needs.
