The Skoda Superb is a fantastic family vehicle, so if you’re already planning a driving holiday before you even get off the forecourt, there are some important things you need to remember, or you could risk your fun and frolicking being ruined.
Of course, if you have a brand new Skoda Superb 2019, you’re not likely to have to worry about servicing your vehicle before your trip. However, if your Skoda is not fresh off the forecourt, it is a good idea to book your vehicle in with your local dealership for a full service. This will allow the experienced mechanics to check your Skoda for any issues that may develop into a problem during the prolonged use in a driving holiday.
Phone a Friend
Not every issue that can develop during a driving holiday is vehicle related. An issue that can be easily neglected is home security. Although you cannot guarantee that something unforeseen will not happen, you can lessen the risk by phoning a trusted friend. While you’re on the road, ask a friend who lives nearby to keep an eye on your home. Be sure to leave your contact details with your friend, so that if anything crops up, they can check in with you. Ask your friend to keep an eye out for property damage, clear out your mail and water your plants, so you don’t dread returning home to chaos.
Secure Your Home
In addition to having a friend look in on your place while you’re away, it is essential to prepare your home before you leave on your big trip. Ensure that your windows and doors are properly secured, lock all your gates and padlock your workshop or tool shed. Don’t leave anything outside your home that could be used by an opportunist burglar and try to avoid making it obvious your home is unoccupied. It may be worth investing in a timer, so you can have one or two lights come on and go off periodically while you’re away.
Plan Your Journey Entertainment
While you may love driving your new Skoda Superb wagon, your kids are likely to be a little less enthusiastic. So, it is crucial that you plan some entertainment for your journey. For younger children, bring a few games or toys with you, so they can play during the journey. Just be sure to avoid games with tiny pieces that may become lost or wedged in the seat cushions, ruining play. Older children are likely to be kept amused by their devices. So, ensure that their tablet is loaded with music, television shows or movies and they have their headphones to avoid disturbing everyone else in the car. Just make sure that you have all the chargers and adapters for your devices, so you can keep everything at full power for your entire break.
