Are you a road trip enthusiast who can’t wait to be back surfing the streets of Mzansi with your loved ones? And how prepared are you? Don’t stress because, in this article, we will give you fun road trip activity ideas and some cool car accessories ideas like keyrings and travel pillows to have your car ready for your trips, and how you can make the most out of your next long (or short) distance adventure.
Start With A Spring Clean
Going on a road trip means your car will be used longer and for more than just driving. It might act as a restaurant for your loved ones and even a resting bed too. Give your car a good clean up before you start your journey and invest in a nice scented car freshener. You can also get a plastic car bin so that everyone can help keep the car clean.
Let The Beat Go On And On
Music is probably one of the most important things to consider when taking a road trip. And if you are travelling with people, everyone’s taste has to be adhered to. A pro-tip from us would be to invest in an aux cable if your car is compatible. This way, you will be able to give everyone a chance to curate (and serenade) songs for the trip. You can shop USB charger ports at The Crazy Store so that you are able to keep everyone’s phones powered and pumping the tunes. A safety measure to consider when taking road trips is to always have your location settings on and to share your movements with at least one trusted person.
Pre-Packed People Are Better Prepared
A road trip suggests that you will be out of your house for some time. So, it is important to pack all your travel essentials with you in time. This also helps you measure and gauge space in your car. Do a trial run if you live with people you will be travelling with. Pack everyone’s bags in advance, place them in the car and do a checklist of all the extra accessories you will need to get, and your actual trip will be a breeze. Another preparedness move to take is to create a driving schedule if you won’t be the only one driving. Decide when you will make rest stops and when the other drivers will take over so you can rest. Teamwork makes the dream work.
Rest Is Recommended
We know you may be excited about heading to where your adventure is, but to enjoy a road trip, you may want to stop at a few places for pictures, food, and some kind of experience. Ensure that you find out which interesting amenities lie on the way to your road trip adventure and create your schedule accordingly to plan for adventures. Add the stops you want to visit and then calculate your time so that you know when you will make it to your destination. Allow yourself and fellow road trip mates enough rest so that everyone gets to enjoy the trip.
Travelling during the holidays can be a bit scary as there are a lot of people on the road. However, if you comply with the rules of the road, become a vigilant driver and take the necessary rest when you need to, you run a low risk of feeling the pressure of the road.
