Long story short, we are going to Alton Towers in a few weeks and we will be driving there, about 200 miles each way. We were going to hire a car a) as a treat and b) because our car has been a bit tempermental recently. However, the cost of hiring a car is ridiculous, we are looking at about £200 for four days, not including petrol.
To be fair, our car has been fine recently but about four / five months ago it was taking several attempts to get started. We took it to the garage and had it looked at but they can't find anything wrong with it. Since then we had had a new cam belt / battery and fuel pump fitted and it has been running fine.
We have never driven this sort of distance so we want to make sure we are prepared. Is there anything we can do to make sure the car is ready for the long journey?
