Although it's currently fairly mild, the outlook is a bit more unsettled with the risk of wet and windy weather, which could affect the Christmas getaway.
It's always one of the busiest periods on the roads, so check the weather and traffic before heading off and plan accordingly. If you're travelling with children, take plenty of things to keep them entertained and break up any journey more than three hours long.
Many breakdowns are preventable, so take a few minutes to do the basic checks on your car. Don't forget to top up the windscreen wash, check and clean your lights, and adjust tyre pressures for a full load, if required.
Also don't take a chance with the weather, so pack a few extra warm and waterproof layers, food, water, torch, fully-charged mobile and an atlas or sat-nav in case of any unexpected diversions.
