Traveling by car is a great and inexpensive way to go on vacation or visit family or friends. Many people are opting for a car ride rather than a flight, because it's cheaper and less restrictive in terms of what you bring along. If you are planning a trip in the near future in your vehicle, check out the car travel tips listed below to help you be prepared for anything on the road:
- Take an extra car key. Keys can easily be lost or left behind, and having an extra key will be a lifesaving in this instance.
- Bring an actual paper map with you, just in case you don't have service or your GPS fails.
- If you're bringing a trailer or hitch, make sure that it is installed to regulations and that all lights are working properly.
- Have your vehicle inspected before you hit the road to ensure that all is in proper working order
- Make sure you have driving arrangements planned so that one driver doesn't get stuck behind the wheel for an extended period of time
- Check your tires beforehand for the correct tire pressure
- Pack an emergency kit for situations like a flat tire, accident, etc.
