Foxy women drivers avoid stress on holiday journeys
If you've ever been stuck in heavy traffic you'll know that it's no fun watching the temperature gauge rise and keeping your fingers crossed that you'll make it to journey's end on time. Even worse you could find yourself stranded on a motorway shoulder with young children, waiting to be towed off for a simple yet expensive car repair, instead of sipping a well-earned glass of chilled wine at your holiday destination.
Steph Savill, founder of FOXY Lady Drivers Club, recommends that women drivers book a 20 minute car fitness check as part of their holiday preparations, to minimise the risk of their car letting them down and ruining an all-important family holiday break.
She explains that...
"Traditionally women are the main holiday planners and organisers, fitting in last minute shopping and packing chores alongside hectic work, home and family commitments. After all this extra effort we look forward to a relaxing and memorable holiday break for all the right reasons! Adding a 20 minute car check to our pre-holiday plans, carried out by local female friendly garage professionals, can minimise the chances of our car letting us down and causing untold stress because this wasn't the perfect weekend we dreamed of."
A typical car check carried out by garage professionals could include tyres, lights, brake fluid, oils & coolant levels, the air conditioning system and vehicle CO2 emissions.
