 A recent Be Wiser Insurance poll found that over two thirds (68%) of parents find the increased congestion on the road to be the biggest issue during the school summer holidays.

The school summer holidays present a number of tricky challenges for parents across the country as they attempt to make the most of their children's time off.

Mark Bower-Dyke, Chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:

"The roads get busier during the summer holidays as everyone else takes advantage of the good weather and the kids’ time off - and sometimes it feels like everyone has decided to visit the same place at the same time!"

The second most frustrating aspect of the summer holidays is finding things for the kids to do; over a fifth of respondents (22%) claiming this is the biggest school summer holiday issue.

Mark Bower-Dyke continues:

"Both statistics go hand in hand - parents try and make the most of this time with day trips and other activities away from home."

Without careful planning there is always a chance these trips turning into frustrating weekends spent in traffic jams.

Mark Bower-Dyke offers this advice:

"To avoid the congestion of these trips it's always advised that you should leave as early as possible and always be ready to take an alternative route. Breakdown cover is a must as there are few things worse than not being able to finish the journey you started. Finally, if you do break down or get stuck in a traffic jam then being prepared to entertain the kids can make a big difference to everyone's mood!"
