esure's 5 Great UK Summer Drives
Beyond just taking the scenic route you can make a day of it – put your favourite tunes (or a classic audiobook) on the stereo, stop for a relaxed pub lunch somewhere you’ve never been and don’t give yourself a hard arrival time anywhere.
Here are some outstanding drives in the UK that are worth making time for and even planning a longer staycation around.
What to do if you have a breakdown.
- If you're on the motorway or in a busy traffic spot, find a safe place to stop - the hard shoulder or a layby if possible - and switch on your hazard lights.
- Exit the car from the passenger side and move yourself and your passengers behind the barrier if you're on a motorway.
- Once everyone is safe contact your breakdown provider. We'd suggest having the number pre-programmed in your list of contacts, with your policy details to hand.
