A carefree holiday with your lease car
Summer, holidays… at last it’s that time of the year again! A time to take it easy and head off somewhere on the open road - in Luxembourg or perhaps abroad. But although you might be able to unwind, it won’t exactly be a relaxing time for your car, especially if you’ve got a long trip ahead of you. So here are a few handy tips for a totally carefree holiday!
Set off in a peaceful frame of mind
If you’re planning a long car journey, make sure you check your car’s brake fluid and coolant, the oil level, and the pressure and wear of the tyres. That way you’ll avoid suffering a breakdown or having to pay for expensive repairs abroad. Also make sure you’ve got all the necessary in-car documents with you. You’ll need to remember the following: your driving licence, a valid certificate of insurance, the certificate of registration, a certificate of uniformity and a European form for the agreed statement of facts on a motor vehicle accident.
Breakdown assistance abroad
A breakdown on the road really spoils your fun, especially when you’re on holiday. That’s why Alphabet automatically provides for a breakdown assistance scheme for all lease vehicles: Alphabet Assistance. Whether it’s due to a mechanical fault or you’ve been involved in an accident, the assistance service comes into action immediately to guarantee your mobility. The Driver Info Card in your on-board document file lists everything that’s covered. Together with Touring, Alphabet makes every endeavour to assist you as quickly as possible.
You can reach Alphabet Assistance on +352 25 00 09 4000, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On French motorways you are advised first to use the orange emergency posts.
A single emergency number valid throughout the European Union: 112
What do you do if you find yourself in an emergency situation abroad and you don’t know the emergency number of the country you’re in? Wherever you are in the European Union, dialling 112 will put you through to the emergency services: ambulances, the fire brigade and the police.
