You also should always carry a phone charger in your car during winter. Mobile telephones run their batteries down more quickly during colder weather, and you don’t want to risk being far, far away from home without having use of a phone. You can pass the time during a delay by using your phone, but, most importantly, you can call for help and inform waiting family members or business partners that you will be arriving with a delay. Make sure that you can plug your phone charger into the socket that is installed in your car.
Last but not least, it is good always to have snow chains at hand. They’ll come in handy especially when traveling to the mountains, on poorly maintained roads, or in cases of sudden change of weather. Don’t forget that if you have only one pair of snow chains they should be put on the wheels that are powered by the engine. All current ŠKODA models have front-wheel drive and in some cases four-wheel drive. In both cases, put the snow chains on the front wheels.
