If you’re a fan of activities in the snow such as skiing and snowboarding you may well be contemplating or even booked to go on a self-drive holiday to one of the many European ski resorts. It can be considerably cheaper to drive yourself and your friends to these ski resorts, however you need to consider the dangers that driving in these countries can bring especially with regards to choosing the right type of tyres.
The vast majority of European drivers have two sets of tyres, having their winter tyres fitted around October time in preparation for the colder months and the dipping temperatures, ice and snow that can appear. Although UK motorists are becoming more aware of winter tyres, in general here in the UK most people just stick to the one set.
We would recommend that if you’re heading over to Europe to enjoy the snow to book in with Grippy – our mobile tyre fitting service covers a 50 mile radius in and around Milton Keynes. We can get winter tyres fitted to your vehicle at a time and place to suit you. With the snow and ice we have been seeing ourselves here in the UK over the past couple of years swapping to winter tyres whether you are here or over in Europe really does make sense. The difference has been proven to keep you not only moving this winter but safer too.
