Driving Tips

Whether you’ve been driving for decades or you’re a rookie on the roads, we have put together our top driving tips that you may not know. Read on to find out more and if you have any to add to the list then please let us know!

Parking Pin

If you struggle to remember where your car is parked, Google Maps can be your aid. Before you head off on your adventure, open the app and drop a pin where you are parked, to save you the stress later in the day. You’ll be able to navigate back to the car like an orienteering expert.

The power of your mind

You can hold your key up to your head to extend the range of the fob. This is actually true so if you need to unlock or lock your car, give this a go. We know there are still some non-believers out there…

Soak up some knowledge

If you spend a lot of time in the car or you’re heading on a long journey, turn off the radio and use the time to learn something new. Audiobooks and podcasts are readily available and no matter what you’re in to, we are sure you will find a valuable one.

Get rental savvy

If you’re going to be renting a car then this is a key tip for you. Before you drive off into the sunset, make sure you take photos of the vehicle so you can not be held accountable for any pre-existing damage.

Fuel for thought

When filling your car up at the petrol station, hold the trigger of the pump halfway down, which makes way for more fuel and less air in your tank. You’re welcome!
