LV= Britannia Rescue is offering advice to motorists to help avoid breakdowns when returning to work after Christmas. The award winning breakdown provider is gearing up for one of its busiest times of year as it responds to vehicles left idle over the festive holiday.
Last year, on the first Monday following the Christmas holidays (29 December 2014), and a key 'return to work day', LV= Britannia Rescue experienced an increase of 241% in call outs for cars that simply wouldn't start. With similar call out numbers predicted for this year, it is offering the following advice to motorists to help avoid any winter worries:
"No one wants a broken down car when they're trying to get back to work after enjoying the Christmas break. Drained batteries are the most common cause of breakdowns and we traditionally see a spike in breakdown call outs at this time of year because cars have been left unused over the holiday. We want drivers to be able to get where they need to be so we're offering these hints and tips to help avoid the stress of a breakdown."
