Don’t improvise on the holiday road

It’s summertime and you will soon be motoring towards your holiday destination. For happy, safe motoring, don’t improvise and make the most of the ViaMichelin app.

Prepare your route:
. Customise your journey by filling in your vehicle’s details in the route options: the cost of your journey will be personalised depending on your vehicle’s individual consumption;
. See all the available services along your route: lay-by’s, service stations, restaurants, tourist sites and hotels so you can plan where to take a break. See an example here ;
. Choose your route: ViaMichelin suggests several routes. Compare the different distance, duration and cost of each one. All toll costs are exact.
 
Choose the best time to set out:
. On the day of your departure, consult real-time traffic conditions to avoid the most congested roads;
. Also remember to consult our weather service.
 
On the road, the ViaMichelin app guides you night and day:
. Make sure you are on the least-congested roads thanks to our alternative routes: as the traffic conditions change, the ViaMichelin app’s GPS instantly suggests route changes to get you quickly to your destination. No more wasted time sitting in traffic jams!
. Customise alerts: in Menu -> Settings, choose which alerts (traffic jams, roadworks, road closures, etc.) you want to see and set an excess speed limit alert. You can also select voice guidance if needed.
. Night-time motoring: the GPS satnav automatically adapts to night-time driving conditions for improved visibility and safety.
