Many people plan their road trips a few weeks beforehand, however due to their excitement, they tend to be a little spontaneous when packing. Because of this, it is important to plan and pack quite earlier before you set off.
Take A Physical Map
Since the creation of navigation systems and smart phones with built in GPS, most people don’t bother with physical maps, especially since they aren’t always the easiest things to read. However, you can’t always count on your electronics to work, so it is always safe to keep a physical map in the glove compartment or under the seat just in case.
Don’t Forget Snacks and Water
Road trips can be quite tiring, as there is limited physical movement in the car. To stay hydrated, it is important to drink lots of water and eat small meals at regular intervals. Rest stops can end up costing quite a lot, as service station and fast food restaurants are often quite expensive. Stay clear of these hefty costs and don’t forget to pack enough snacks and water, to last the duration of the trip.
