A UK caravan holiday is a great way for the family to spend time together and see some of the country. But if you don’t take the appropriate precautions you may be putting yourself at risk from an accident on the road.
There is nothing stopping you from packing up your belongings, jumping in the car and taking whichever route you want- head to the coast of take in the peaks and dales, the choice is yours.
But as with any form of motoring you need to make sure you are safe when you are on the road, not just for you and your family, but for other motorists too, as road accidents are always a potential danger.
Before you set off
Before you embark on your UK caravan holiday, there are a few essential safety checks you should perform to ensure a streamlined holiday.
Safety checks to remember before your UK caravan holiday:
- Check the tyre pressure is at the correct PSI on your caravan
- Check your water levels
- Monitor the gas levels in the cylinder used in your caravan
- Ensure all your lights and indicators are working
- Make sure you have up to date breakdown cover
- Ensure you have a first aid kit in the caravan as even the slightest slips, trips and falls can ruin a holiday
