Depending on your final destination and your company, road trips can be an excellent way to see the sights. Here are a few tips for preparing for your next road trip:
Plan a Loose Route
Once you’ve decided on your final destination, the next step is to plan your trip’s route. Be sure to make a list of places you want to hit and ensure the route takes you along that path. Also, plan your rest and sleep stops throughout your journey and make necessary reservations.
Make Sure Your Car is Road-Ready
At least a week prior to your road trip, ensure your car is checked by a mechanic who can give you the green light for travel. Also, be sure to sign up for roadside assistance for a worst-case scenario. Make sure to pack a spare tire in case of emergency.
Pack an Emergency Kit
Pack an emergency kit with bandages, alcohol, peroxide, antibiotics, nausea medicatons, allergy medications, sunscreen and sunglasses.
Find Some Travel Buddies
If you are traveling with other willing drivers, you can travel 700–1,000 miles per day depending on the speed and number of stops you and your buddy decide to make. If you are the only driver take at least 15-minute break every two hours.
Make Sure You Have Entertainment and Snacks for the Entire Trip
Snacks and drinks are necessary throughout your trip if you haven’t prepped meals. Entertainment will help keep you and travel buddies awake.
Pack your Vehicle a Day Before Your Trip
This will help you to get an early start to your trip and it gives you a chance to find out if the luggage fits.
