6 essential tips for your next road trip

Whether you’re on the road for an hour or a week, make sure you’re prepped! Check out these tips for your next road trip so you can just enjoy the ride.

Take frequent breaks

We’re not saying you have to stop at every servo when you’re on the road but its worthwhile taking a pit stop every hour or two. Whether you want to get out and explore the area a bit or get a quick bite to eat, taking a break is essential for the whole crew! Whether you need to take a quick toilet break or need to pump some petrol, stop at the next rest station or servo.

Dress comfortably

There’s nothing worse than sitting in a car for hours on end wearing tight and uncomfortable clothing! Make sure you wear comfortable and cozy clothing so you can feel relaxed during your ride. We recommend breathable clothes with some slippers or sneakers. If you even want to feel more comfortable, bring a mini pillow and throw!

Have entertainment on hand

Whether you bring along some games or whip together a playlist on Spotify, it’s essential that you have some entertainment for your journey, whether it’s long or short! Before you head off, be sure to download some audio books or trivia games to keep you occupied for your trip. Bring some Uno, crank up the speakers and get ready for a great time.

Pack snacks

Depending on how big your stomachs are and how many people are coming with you, you might need to bring a whole heap of snacks. An essential part to any road trip is having an excessive amount of snacks to share around the car while you chat or play games! Load up at the grocery store before you leave so you don’t have to purchase overpriced chips and meat pies at the servo. If you want a healthier alternatives, bring some homemade chip and dip or sliced fruit in advance!

Bring all of your chargers

This might be one of the most important tips for your road trip! Phones and devices are often used as a GPS, a music player or just for your social media scrolling pleasures. Running out of battery for any of these devices could lead to you getting lost or feeling extremely bored during your trip. Make sure you’re bringing a portable charger or a cord to plug into your car to avoid any messy mishaps!

Stay fresh – pack your toiletries

If there’s a full house in your car, the last thing you want to do is stink it up, especially if you’re driving for a long period of time. If there are no showers at your pit stop on the way, consider getting some wet wipes, dry shampoo or deodorant to keep yourself feeling fresh. Otherwise, just pack some mini toiletries and have them nearby in case you need to pull over at a rest stop and have a quick shower!
