A Great Promotional Product for Winter: Winter Driving Survival Kits

Well the clocks have gone back, the evenings are colder, the heating is on, the woolies have been unpacked and that can only mean we're into winter so a well-timed marketing idea could be something like one of our Winter Driving Survival Kits as an opportune promotional product for the season. 

While it might be reasonable during the day, a lot of us are getting night frosts already so we know that the colder stuff isn't far away and that can mean more challenging driving conditions. Given the unpredictable UK winter weather, it's best to get organised while the going is good so when it does take a turn for the worst – and it will – we're not scrambling to cobble together all the bits and bobs we need for a safe drive. 

Winter Driving Survival Kits

Our Winter Driving Survival Kits will get your customers off to a good start as it includes a 150ml de-icer spray, chamois and ice-scraper presented in a reusable automotive drawstring bag with velvet lining. This handy kit has everything you need to keep prepared when driving this winter and to promote your logo or brand at the same time! 

No one wants another 'Beast from the East' and thankfully they're rare as in the face of such extremes there's little that can be done to prepare. However, in the event of for our run-of-the-mill cold, ice and snow making an appearance it's best we have the basics sorted out and follow some simple guidelines suggested by the various motoring agencies in the UK. 

For a solid winter driving kit, ours will start you off but is by no means exhaustive so it's best to also keep to hand items such as a tow rope, a shovel, hazard warning triangle, first aid kit, working torch, a car blanket, and some snacks. 

Then it's a case of following some common-sense rules like keeping your vehicle prepared, in sound working order (remember to top up that anti-freeze too!) and with a full tank. Then when you're going to travel: check local/national weather/travel bulletins, have an alternative route planned, clear all your windows properly, remember your stopping distances in snow and ice and allow yourself extra time for the journey. 

We may be lucky this year and not require most of those tips but the items in the Winter Driving Survival Kits will see use, so if you want a giveaway that's seasonal, useful and inexpensive you can't go far wrong with this promotional product
