Plan the Trip and Route Planning is one of the most important aspects of a road trip. The first thing you need to decide is where you want to go and which is the most comfortable and safest route. Make sure you know everything necessary about the route and check it on Google maps. Do not forget to take a map along as that will come in really handy. A guidebook may also be a good idea if this is the first road trip you plan to make. Pack and Prep the Vehicle Packing is the second most important thing that you need to take. It is best to take the things that you need and only as much as your vehicle can easily carry. Pack clothes, emergency medical kit, toys, some on the way board games, cutlery and some snacks, song CDs, digital camera and chargers. Keep any other thing that you may think is necessary like toiletries, medicines etc. Also ensure that you have enough cash and keep some extra for emergencies. Another thing that you need to check is the vehicle you will use for the road trip. Have it serviced by a mechanic, check oil, wipers, radiator and all the tires. Be sure to take a spare tire along. Ensure that your GPS system is properly installed and updated. If you don’t have one, think about getting one. It can save you from a lot of hassle on the road.
