    Coping with the traffic out of London for Christmas holidays


    Are you considering venturing out of London for Christmas Holidays, leaving behind the convenient comforts of the Big Smoke? If you are willing to give up the Tube connections and constant access to gingerbread lattes, then you’ve taken the first step in successfully moving out of London for Christmas Holidays.

    Slips, trips and falls in the city

    While the capital’s festive hustle and bustle may be home to a myriad of seasonal accidents, including slips, trips and falls, when you hit the roads and head out of London for Christmas Holidays, you face a number of winter travel hazards, that you would be wise to prepare for.

    Travelling out of London for Christmas Holidays

    Those who are usually located within the capital are used to busy roads, but typically opt to travel by other, more cost-efficient means, when going about their daily routine.

    Whether you choose to travel by car or by public transport in London, when you venture out of London for Christmas Holidays, you immediately run the risk of experiencing a road traffic accident, simply due to travelling on unfamiliar roads and routes.

    To avoid a road-related accident it is best to pre-plan any journey you intend to take. Perhaps even give it a go before the days grow shorter and the weather worsens. Variables such as darker days and adverse weather conditions can increase the risk of accidents on the road.

    Preparing for road travel in winter

    Before heading out of London for Christmas Holidays, be sure to check the weather forecast with the Met Office. Avoid travel if any weather warnings have been issued. Stay up to date with weather and travel news during your journey, to minimise the chance of being caught in adverse weather conditions that could increase the risk of accidents on the road.

    It is essential that you carry an emergency kit, which should include the following items:

    • de-icing equipment
    • change of clothes and blankets
    • first aid kit
    • wellies or snow boots
    • camera
    • in-car phone charger or back-up battery pack
    • car hammer
    • tyre pressure gauge
    • foot pump
    • warning triangle
