Your winter car survival kit

08/12/2021  Useful Information All News

We are sure by now everybody saw the news where customers at a pub in Yorkshire were stuck there for a number of days after the bad weather hit.

This got us thinking: If things did go wrong (and yes, the above is extreme), how much essential kit do we actually have in our cars if we were to breakdown this winter?

With that in mind, we thought we'd put together a quick winter survival kit for your vehicle - some of these items could be vital this year, especially if you were to break down or get stuck in heavy traffic: If you don't already have these, it might just be worth purchasing them and putting to one side in your vehicle (just in case!):

  • Blanket
  • Thick gloves
  • First Aid Kit
  • Boots
  • Spare winter clothing
  • Torch (and a few spare batteries)
  • Non-perishable snacks
  • Bottle of Water
  • First Aid Kit
  • Extra washer fluid
  • Warning tringle- newer cars will have these as standard so please check your boot

Safe driving.

Jigsaw Finance Limited is a credit broker and not a lender. We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders and their finance products. We are not an independent financial advisor; we will provide details of products available, but no advice or recommendation will be made. You must decide whether the finance product is right for you.

Whichever lender Jigsaw Finance Limited introduces you to, we will typically receive commission from them (either a fixed fee or a fixed percentage of the amount you borrow).

All of the lenders that Jigsaw Finance Limited work with could pay commission at different rates and the commission values could vary between finance products, but the commission we receive does not influence the interest rate you will pay. Jigsaw Finance Limited's aim is to secure finance for you at the lowest interest rate available from our panel of lenders.
