Next week is rekreationens characters. It is this year's seventh week, and for the hundreds of thousands of danes it is similar with the ski holiday.
For many, time on the slopes, however, quickly be overshadowed by the trivial and less funny things that can steal the profits. Goes the car, for example, stuck in the middle of the Norwegian wilderness, it can quickly become an ordeal for even the most ferieklare family.
And do you think the assistancefirmaet SOS International, which each year helps thousands of danes in distress, it happens surprisingly often. The danes commit the same mistakes again and again, because they do not prepare themselves - and their cars - well enough for the trip.
- It is many of the same assistance we do for the danes every year, says Jan-Petter Schøyen, station manager at SOS International in Oslo, in a press release.
In approximately half of all cases, moving the company out to the cars that can not start, because the car's battery has given up in the cold.
- Therefore, we recommend that the battery is fully charged when the car is parked upon arrival. In addition, there are many sites the opportunity to keep in heated parking. At least it is a secure solution, says Jan-Petter Schøyen in the press release.
Norway is one of the Danish absolute favoritdestinationer, when the location is facing the door. Each year packages of tens of thousands of pisteglade danes car and go against the popular destinations like Trysil, Hemsedal and Hafjell in the Norwegian mountains.
But many forget that the Norwegian nature can be very different than the Danish. As a result, some unfortunate drivers always in unfortunate situations, when the car goes in the stand in no man's land, where temperatures can be was followed.
- in Particular the long stretch of our high plains in the snow and low temperatures can create problems. It can be incredibly far to the nearest gas station, so we recommend to fill both the fuel and the washer fluid on the car, before driving out on the parts of the journey, says Jan-Petter Schøyen in the press release.
in Addition, he recommends that the man always packs the car well before you run out into the Norwegian landscape. Warm clothes in the cabin, a filled thermos flask, food and an extra power supply to the phone are all things that can save lives and mood, if the worst should happen.
Finally, Jan-Petter Schøyen a concrete advice to the danes, that runs in diesel cars: don't fill the tank in Denmark.
The Norwegian diesel is added additives that prevents fuel filter in to stop for. Thoughts one in Norway, one can thus avoid that dieselen freezer so much, that the car in the workshop.
