Top tips for stress-free long journeys, staycations and family trips | What Car? | Promoted

If you’re planning a long-awaited family holiday, a day trips to a far-off destinations, or a weekends away with friends, it’s worth boning up on a few simple driving tips that will make your next long journey safer, calmer and more cost-efficient. We’ve partnered with Vitality car insurance to share some expert advice that makes every journey easier.

Based on UK Government statistics, July, August and September are the busiest months of the year for traffic – with around 15% more vehicles on the road than in spring, and up to 13m vehicles travelling on peak weekends. We typically also travel further distances, with summer trips being around 60% longer than those in winter.

According to the RAC, this year will be even busier. In 2021, British drivers are reportedly planning in excess of 29m staycations – with 16m of these in the school summer holiday period, and the vast majority of drivers (57%) saying they’ll be travelling more than 150 miles from home.

The result: more traffic, more traffic jams, and more likelihood of accidents and breakdowns. But, by simply being more aware of your actions and making a few subtle changes, you can smooth the stress out long trips, while also potentially cutting the costs of long journeys by driving more efficiently.

This summer, What Car? has partnered with Vitality: a new kind of car insurance that actively rewards good driving. We’ve already pulled together plenty of expert tips for everyday driving. But here are some expert tips for making long summer journeys and family trips easier and safer. And it all starts before you even set off…
