Christmas is stressful enough for most families without the added tension involved in having to travel on the UK roads to visit relatives. To help make the journey at least stress free, Vauxhall has lined up a range of car accessories that they believe will offer some much needed practical assistance to make life a little easier during the festive madness.
If you are heading off before Christmas Day to spend time with your family, then you will probably be worrying about how you will transport all your luggage and more importantly hide the presents from the kids. A Vauxhall roof box will give you all the essential extra space you need. And importantly, convenient central locking on the roof box means that you can ensure that there'll be no prying eyes trying to sneak a look at what Santa has brought. Vauxhall's range of roof boxes start at just £164.
And if you're travelling to visit relatives after Christmas Day, then there's nothing worse than seeing the happiness in your children's faces turn to disappointment when you discover that you can't take the kid's new bikes with you. A versatile Vauxhall bike carrier, from as little as £56.99, will ensure that this doesn't happen to you and that the kids keep smiling.
When the festive season all gets too much and you find that you need to escape, then a Vauxhall towbar will allow you to take a caravan for a quiet break in the country, away from extended family! Or if you're into more active breaks, then Vauxhall's range of ski and snowboard carriers, starting from £89.99, will help you get away for some winter fun in the Alps.
And when it's all over and the decorations come down in January, a Vauxhall Cargo Liner, available for £49.99 and designed to provide maximum protection for your car boot will make transporting the dead Christmas tree and any other waste to the tip a little easier and cleaner.
