Brian Joss – Jaguar Land Rover South Africa are offering a range of valuable services, including their Holiday Heroes campaign, to customers this festive season to ensure the holidays are enjoyed safely on the road and at home.
All Jaguar and Land Rover owners are invited to have their vehicles checked for free ahead of any planned holiday journeys. The quick and easy check-ups can be booked at any authorised dealership between 1 December and 1 January, and include tyre assessments along with visual and electronic health checks of safety critical items.
If Jaguar or Land Rover drivers do happen to encounter any trouble on the road, whether a simple tyre puncture or unforeseen mechanical issue, the Heroic Roadside Assist team is available to help get the journey back underway safely. A fleet of rescue vehicles and helicopters are on standby along all major holiday routes to ensure delays are kept to a minimum.
This amplified roadside assistance offering will also run from 1 December to 1 January. The service can be requested via Jaguar Land Rover vehicles’
onboard eCall and bCall buttons activated via InControl (depending on vehicle specification) or by calling 012 450 4000. Owners of vehicles with eCall and bCall functionality are encouraged to update their emergency contact and medical aid details with Jaguar Land Rover.
Support on the roads will also be provided by Jaguar Land Rover’s best-in-class partner Europ Assistance.
