If you are already worrying how you are going to fit all the family’s luggage into the car for this summer’s touring holiday, Vauxhall can offer owners of its vast range of saloons, estates and MPVs an instant solution and the chance to save money on roof box and base carrier accessories.
The simple expedient of fitting a base carrier to your roof opens up a number of extra luggage options, which are capable of doubling the luggage capacity of the average family car.
Participating Vauxhall retailers throughout the UK are currently offering free fitting on all base carriers, plus a 10 per cent discount on new roof boxes when purchased with a base carrier. Base carriers are priced at £92, while roof box prices start at £199.
The special offer runs until the end of September, which means that you can buy a base carrier and Travel roof box for just £269 fitted, or combine your base carrier with a Sport roof box for £295.
Base carriers clamp on to the built in roof rails fitted as standard to most estate cars and MPVs. As well as roof boxes, they can with additional attachments provide secure fixing for bicycles, surfboards or canoes.
Vauxhall’s streamlined, lightweight Travel and Sport roof boxes fit neatly on to a base carrier to provide car owners with an additional 450 litre load capacity and are easy to install.
If you are thinking about investing in a caravan or trailer, Vauxhall has simplified the price structure on towing accessories for touring holidays this summer. There are now just four price bands covering the whole Vauxhall car range, with prices for fixed ball tow bars with 12N electrics starting at £230 and detachable coupling tow bars at £375.
Vauxhall retailers throughout the UK can also help you to plan a safe continental touring holiday. A free Summer Travel Guide outlines the wide range of mandatory and advisory accessories you will need to cope with most emergencies.
From spare bulb kits, headlamp converters and warning triangles to fire extinguishers, first aid kits and temporary tyre repair kits, everything necessary for a trouble-free holiday can be purchased from your nearest Vauxhall retailer.
