Winter Car Emergency Essentials

Winter is often a time that many road users tend to dread. With it typically being a season of delays, harsh weather conditions and unpredictable roads, carrying your winter car emergency essentials can help to make a big difference should you find yourself stuck.

1. A blanket, rug or sleeping bag

Should you get stuck out in the coldest of nights, you’ll be glad to have something to sleep in and keep you warm.

2. Shovel

Not that it’s likely, but if you’ll certainly be grateful to have one should you need it.

3. Ice Scraper and De-icer

This is a must for winter. Always keep your windscreen clear, particularly in harsher conditions where it may be more difficult to see. There’s nothing more frustrating than going to your car in the morning to find your front and back windscreens are iced over. It’s even more annoying when you don’t have an ice-scraper to hand! Keeping these essentials in your car are bound to save you time when it comes to rushing to work in the morning!

4. Torch

Just in case you breakdown at night. Don’t forget the batteries too!

5. Appropriate Footwear

If you get stuck out in the middle of no where in the cold, you don’t want to be walking around in your flip flops! It might have been warm inside the car, but if you breakdown, you need to be prepared for all weathers!

6. Snacks

It’s never nice to be stuck somewhere and not have anything to keep you going. The glove compartment is the perfect place to store some handy snacks ready for if you find yourself not moving anywhere!

7. Spare Bulbs

It’s not something everyone may think of, but they’re definitely handy when you need them! Your lights are your best friend when it comes to winter, so if one of them fail, it’s best to have a spare in the car rather than wait for someone to help!

8. Jump Leads

Jump leads aren’t just useful in winter, but all year round. Batteries have a habit of starting to complain when winter sets in, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry, particularly in winter!
