I bought the Voss water in a plastic bottle from Tesco in the meal deal. We opened the bottles and squeezed about half the air out and stuck them in the freezer. We then put them in the car for our trip in Europe. We arrive there almost 24 hours later and there was some ice in the unused bottles. Th...

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

Fords keyless cars won't lock if the key is in the car or the engine is running. It's nice, but the off set is in the winter. You can't start the car and lock with 2nd set of keys to warm up.

Re: Passports - what can I do?

If the child has 2nd passport, then "traveling across Europe" in that sort of direction would reduce questions. We see it when at Euro tunnel. We spend less time at passport control than others

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

A car driving on main roads is less likely to breakdown as your not pulling away, gearing up, breaking and gearing down. Returned from a 1,200 mile each way trip across Europe last week. UK, FR, B, NL, D, A, SOL, H, and HR ( Number plate codes of countrys). DVD player does the job. You may find adju...
