The Musical Tourer

Add more music to your trips

For me touring holidays and music go hand in hand. When driving around the UK you need to have a playlist that puts you in both the driving and holiday mood. For a long while you have had to use either a 3rd party audio system (bluetooth speaker or a whole separate sound system) or the on board built in speaker system. If music is one of your holiday passions you can now have a professional system fitted.

End of disclaimer.

We highlight what to look forward to ahead of the NEC Show in February

I love the NEC show which takes place twice a year and it is returning to Birmingham once again. It is a fantastic place to find so many new and exciting things that are going on in the industry as well as speaking to exhibitors and the general public.
