As the days get longer and the weather gets (slightly) warmer, there’s no better time to hit the open road and go on an adventure.

At Halfords, we know that the perfect summer drive needs the perfect playlist. So, we’ve scoured the charts and dusted off the classics to curate a collection of tunes to soundtrack your summer, wherever the road takes you!

We’ve got something for everyone, whether you’re staying up to date with the chart-toppers:

  • Cruel Summer – Taylor Swift
  • Espresso – Sabrina Carpenter
  • BIRDS OF A FEATHER – Billie Eilish

Reliving the glory days with some throwbacks:

  • Come On Eileen – Dexys Midnight Runners
  • Mamma Mia – ABBA
  • Islands In the Stream – Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers

Or taking it back to the 2000s:

  • Crazy In Love – Beyoncé (feat. Jay-Z)
  • Mr. Brightside – The Killers
  • Grace Kelly – MIKA

With this mix, you should have the perfect playlist to keep the whole family happy! And don’t forget, we’re here to get you there with a range of car maintenance services and essentials.

Upgrade your audio

To enjoy our playlist, you might be thinking about upgrading your in-car audio system! We’ve got loads of options to enhance your listening experience, whether you want to add some extra dimension with a car amp or stream your music straight from your phone with an Apple Car Play or Android Auto-enabled stereo.

Car checks

Time for your MOT and service? Booking them together can save you an extra trip to the garage and some money (even more as a Halfords Motoring Club member. Still not part of the club? Sign up here.)

If you’re up to date on your annual maintenance, then maybe you just want the peace of mind that everything’s working as it should before you hit the road. Book a 10-Point Car Check at your local store or garage for free with your Motoring Club membership perk, and let us check some of the vital areas of your car like your tyres and battery.

Breakdown essentials

Even with the yearly maintenance taken care of, a breakdown can still strike. So, we recommend packing some breakdown essentials just in case:

You’ll also want to make good use of your Motoring Club benefits before you go – you can use your 5% Premium member discount to stock up on in-car essentials before you set off.
