Car Hire company in France now providing safety extras

In July 2007 it became mandatory to have a reflective jacket and a triangle in your car. Like in Italy the jacket cannot be stored in the boot, but in the car itself in case you have to get out of the car in an emergency, which makes sense.

I was very pleased to see when I collected a Holiday Autos - National /Citer car in early January that inside the car was a green pouch containing a warning triangle and a reflective jacket. The pouch has instructions clearly stating that it must remain in the body of the car

The reflective vest is also compulsory in Italy, Belgium and Spain and in Spain you must carry reflective vests for all occupants and also carry two warning triangles. Drivers in Spain who wear glasses must carry a spare pair with them at all times.

Cyprus is an island rich in historical culture and a unique beauty and Cyprus has become extremely popular amongst holidaymakers from all over the world. With over 300 days of sunshine per year and offering many superb beaches spread along its coastline, it isn’t difficult to see just why so many people have grown to love Cyprus.

Prominent holiday home investment markets such as North Cyprus produce high return benefits of approximately 4-5% per year for the coming ten years. This sort of revenue returns are set to stay for the foreseeable future, meaning North Cyprus will retain a stable economy and growth will continue in positive territory.
