Thule Smart Solutions for Family Holidays

If you’re packing up the car and heading off to a UK or European holiday-spot this year, you’ll want to travel in as much comfort as possible. Kids, suitcases, tents and bikes soon take up space and your family’s comfort and safety will become a top priority as you travel.

Thule, the world’s leader in sports and recreation products that make it easier for people to transport their equipment safely, securely and in style, has a wide range of products to add space to your car: roof boxes to add litres of extra space, cycle racks to transport bikes securely on the roof, back or tow bar and canoe and kayak carriers for water-sports enthusiasts.

The Thule EuroClassic G6 has become a firm favourite, due to its tilt function which allows easy access to the car boot. With the ability to carry up to four bikes, the Thule EuroClassic G6 is popular with families as well as cycle teams.
A smart roof box solution will add those missing litres of space to your car, meaning you can pack up all your usual gear and still travel in comfort.

Thanks to the new and spacious Thule Motion Roof Box, comfortable car journeys are guaranteed, as luggage can be conveniently stowed in the roof box. The Thule Motion has been commended by the press for its flawless mounting operation, drivability, weather resistance and price. It really is an absolute feat of engineering and design. Equipped with a fast-grip, quick mounting system and new dual-side opening, all fitting can be done from inside the box. It also clips on and off in a flash, making it perfect for the impromptu user.

Peter Barker, UK Business Manager at Thule commented: “A roof box is a welcome addition to the family hatchback or city commuter car and the wide range of Thule roof boxes on offer means there is something to everyone. Being able to add the extra space to your car as and when you need it, rather than carry the overheads of a larger vehicle the whole year round is convenient and at a time when people are buying smaller cars, smart.”

If you’re planning to hit the tracks, then Thule has the answers to transport your bikes safely and securely with the iconic Thule ProRide 591. The award winning roof top bike carrier has scored highest of all tested bike carriers in the category of cycle transport on the car roof. The Thule ProRide 591 fits directly onto a Thule car rack with the upmost ease, and it’s equally as simple to secure your bike. On a typical car fitted with a Thule roof rack, using the T-track of the Thule SlideBar or WingBar, you can fit up to 4 Thule 591 cycle carriers.
