Prepare for driving overseas with free "motoring abroad kits"
Fleet Evolution has made the packs available to all its new and existing customers as part of an initiative to help motorists comply with the multitude of rules and regulations when driving overseas.
Andrew Leech, MD of the Midlands-based fleet management firm, said: ‘Overseas travel can be immensely pleasurable, but it’s very easy to become entangled in legal pitfalls. These can range from not having a replacement bulb-set in France, to not having held a licence for 12 months in the US.’
Some overseas motoring offences involve a hefty fine, while others could result in a vehicle being impounded. Worse still, many people find out they are not covered for things like European recovery, and medical expenses if an accident occurs, until it's too late.
'Whether you are driving abroad for business, or pleasure, our "motoring abroad kit" will be very helpful, and may mean the difference between a small hiccup in your journey, and spending many frustrating hours in a foreign police station,' added Leech.
The kit includes a guide to the motoring laws of the country you are visiting, a warning triangle, two "high-vis" safety vests, a spare bulb and fuse kit, GB stickers and other useful items, tailored to the specific requirements of individual countries.
Customers can get packs for their current vehicle, while any new vehicle ordered through Fleet Evolution will also contain this guide. In addition, non-customers can obtain a free guide to a country's motoring laws, complete with a checklist, simply by listing the countries required.
