British tourists should pack ‘portable stove’ for Europe holiday

Travel lover Grace Kelly and experts at Carmoola shared the top tips for a “safe and enjoyable” Europe road trip this year.

Top tips for a safe summer road trip :

  • Keep over half a tank of fuel as often as possible in case you find yourself far from a fuel station
  • Always keep a supply of plenty of water and snacks stocked in the boot
  • Always bring a portable stove, as it could be handy for making hot drinks/meals on the go and saving some money
  • Use an overseas-friendly debit card to avoid foreign transaction fees

  • Ensure you have your insurance and emergency contact number for your rental car to hand in case of emergencies (screenshot these and don’t rely on phone service to find it)
  • Have a contact back home who knows your planned route and check in with them at agreed points
  • Google maps are great but keep a local map or A to Z handy in case you’re caught with no phone service (a common occurrence on road trips)
  • Download a long playlist on wifi before you travel so you can play it offline
  • Take a phone tripod for those picturesque road-side stop offs where there’s no one to take your photo
  • The safety things: wear your seatbelt, keep your door locked and don’t go over the speed limit
