I almost forgot this one , great for Family Holidays

One that just came back to my mind  that you might want to know about, Could be a bit late  in the season for this year, but for 2014 im sure the people at  http://www.landcruise.uk.com/ would love to hear from you

These Guys are based in Chichester in west Sussex and they hire out Very good quality Mobile homes, We have used them  twice for trips and have absolutely No  problem in recommending them to any one. We Have used generally  larger vehicles so that we have not had the hassle of making up beds  each day . There are 4 of us and we like our space.

The homes all come with just about everything you need for the trip, all you need to cover is the cost of fuel , food, fun, fizzy pop, and your entertainment .

On one of our trips we went from the south coast to Scotland for 3 days, stopped pretty much  where we wanted to en route, we went to Blackpool, York and  to see some old friends in the north-east.

These  units work out to be not too expensive in my opinion for what you  get and as we found you can have a real adventure hiring one for  a week

They can be taken  overseas if you arrange this  with the team before you take the unit away

So i thought it best to list a few  things that might help you get through it.

Advice from The AA on winter driving  it might be snow that comes , it may be  rain and wind

Similar from the RAC  which also has some ideas on how to change your driving

A link to the BBC where you can put in a town or postcode you are in  or going to and see  what’s forecast
