Fixter.co.uk, the UK’s first end-to-end online car maintenance service provider, today reveals national survey results which show that UK drivers have not prepared their vehicles for summer holidays.
Results from a national Fixter survey shows that 70% of Fixter customers are planning to spend their holidays in the UK this year and will rely on their cars for road-trips and stay-cations.
However, the survey finds that 69% of survey participants have not yet prepared their vehicles or looked for advice on summer driving to ensure safe long-distance travels after lockdown.
Limvirak Chea, Co-Founder and CEO of Fixter, said: “As a result of the current crisis, many UK citizens will spend their holiday in the UK instead of travelling abroad. Our customer survey results show that cars will be used more frequently than usual for road trips and stay-cations. Since the six-month MOT extension has been put into place, a greater number of drivers could experience breakdowns on their way to their holiday destination or during a road trip.
We want to ensure that our customers and essentially all UK drivers are prepared and have their car checked for their holidays after lockdown. Whether cars were sitting idle for a long period or the hot summer months are affecting the health of vehicles, we aim to avoid a spike in breakdowns.”
