Planning A Road Trip
Embarking on a road trip is just the beginning of a thrilling adventure. But before you set off, there are some important things you should take care of to ensure a safe and enjoyable time!
Have A (Loose) Plan
You don’t have to plan every minute of every day, but a loose plan – mainly revolving around the towns you want to stop at (and how long you want to stop for) – will help you from underestimating how much time you have.
Charge Your Devices
Many car rental companies will offer a range of in-car chargers and music players to help you keep your devices charged while you’re on the road. You can also set up your very best car tunes to pass the time!
Pack Snacks And Drinks
Stay fuelled and hydrated with a variety of snacks and drinks. Bonus: drinking lots of water will force you to pull over for the bathroom, giving you an opportunity to get out of the car and stretch your legs out.
Take Turns Driving
Drowsy driving is dangerous, so share the driving! Don’t hesitate to pull over for a rest if you feel like you’re struggling to remain alert behind the wheel. A half-hour delay isn’t going to ruin plans.
Turn The Ride Into The Adventure
A road trip is about the time spent in the car as much as the time spent at local towns. Make memories with your friends, listen to great music, take lots of picture, and soak it all in!
