The summer holidays are just around the corner and you may be planning a family holiday to Euro Disney or another destination in Europe. Our Driving in Europe Family Pack includes essential items for safe driving on the continent.
The family version of our popular Driving in Europe Kit includes a set of four high visibility vests for the familiy. These are essential for roadside safety should you break down.
The kit also includes a twin pack of NF approved breathalysers to meet new French driving requirements. Two warning triangles cover you for driving in Spain where you must place a triangle to the front and rear of a broken down vehicle.
January 2013 - Drivers in France have been required to carry a self-test breathalyser since July 2012 with enforcement by fines originally planned for 1 November but subsequently postponed to 1 March 2013. Now the French government has announced that the implementation of the sanction (fine) for drivers not carrying a breathalyser – a fine of €11 – has been postponed indefinitely.
