Drivers holidaying in the UK this year have been urged to get their car checked before their long journey, which could help to keep car insurance down.

GEM Motoring Assist notes that holidaying in the UK has become more popular in the economic downturn, but has warned motorists about the dangers.

Drivers have been urged to check their tyres, brakes, windscreen wash, lights and oil levels, while a full service is recommended for vehicles that will be overloaded, or towing a caravan.

The company also advises drivers to check their car insurance breakdown cover, in case the worse should occur on an unfamiliar road.

GEM chief executive David Williams, said: "It is extremely important that drivers realise the necessity to ensure their cars have been fully checked, as there is a real danger in breaking down on a strange road."

Earlier this week, the road safety organisation urged drivers to ensure that they have their vehicle checked before heading off on a driving holiday abroad.

The company also suggested that motorists check their vehicles are in compliance with road laws in any country they intend to travel in.
