Before traveling.

Get to your destination safely.

To make sure you can drive with confidence on longer journeys, we recommend putting your vehicle through a thorough check-up before you leave. Our Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Service Partners will be happy to help you with our Vehicle Safety Check.


What you need in your vehicle to be ready for anything:

  • Spare wheel (at the correct tyre pressure, see manual) or breakdown kit
  • Tool kit
  • Tow rope or bar
  • Textile insulation tape (e.g. to temporarily seal water hoses)
  • Torch with charged batteries
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Safety vest(s) and warning triangle
  • First aid kit

What to check before you start your journey.

Ensure that your lights and indicators are working correctly and the tyre pressure is set to the optimum level. Make sure you have a good, clear view through each of the windows. Check that any luggage, work materials and other items are well secured and that there are no loose objects blocking the pedals. Set the mirrors, front seat and headrest to suit you. Help your passengers to find their perfect seat position, too. Sit any children in a suitable car seat and fasten their seatbelt. And of course, make sure all of your passengers are buckled in at all times.

We wish you a very safe and pleasant journey.
