Author: Srikanth Krishna on Aug 20,2020

Traveling is all about fun and excitement, we create numerous happy memories on a trip. What will happen if traveling made you suffer? A small mistake can ruin the whole journey and make it miserable.

If you want to make your journey filled with joy rather than ruining it, here are some tips to avoid the common mistakes that you make while you go on a road trip.

1) Car-Check Before Leaving For A Trip.

If you are taking the car to the trip, then get your vehicle fully serviced at least 1 week before going on a long road trip. Otherwise, your car will definitely put you in trouble, you never know when a friend will become an enemy. So make sure the car is in good condition and go on then only go for a road trip. 

Check the air pressure in the tire of the car, engine oil, steering oil, brakes, all these things should be checked. Make sure that everything in the car operates properly. In case of an emergency in the car, there should be oil, there should be another tire, the medical kit should also be with you.

2) Navigation is Necessary.

One important thing we forget when going on a trip is that we don't download apps for maps and entertainment. Here are some reasons why you should have such apps. If you don't have these apps on your journey, you may get in trouble at a crucial time. 

If you already download songs in music apps, your mobile will not lose data and battery during your journey. If you already have the right maps of your destination, you get the right direction on the journey. You know the problem with your smartphone's battery while traveling. If you are well-prepared for a road trip, these problems will be reduced.

3) Avoid Overpacking.

The trip means fun, pleasure, curiosity, eating, drinking, and everyone will remember the trip for a lifetime, But we do some things that make us remember the trip as a terrible experience. One of them is that we carry a lot of luggage on the trip. You can't even sit properly because of too many things. All of these things can cause problems for your car as well.

So when you go on a trip, you should take only what is required. In the baggage, you include your cotton clothes, luxury jewelry, food items, and many things for no reason. Decide how many days you want to go on the trip, and you have to decide how many items you carry on it.

5) Emergency Kit Is Must

Air Pressure Gauge, Battery Charger, First Aid Box are all very important in Emergency Kit. If your car engine suddenly has a problem, you should be prepared. You need engine oil for this so that if it runs out, there will be no problem. Keep extra batteries with you. Carry a first aid kit in case of any emergency, It should contain scissors, bandages, and painkillers.

6) Keep A Check On Household Items

When you go on a road trip, keep your household items safe. If you don't keep things in order, things will pop in your mind, and so the fun of your trip goes away. You get worried throughout the trip to avoid this. You can keep valuable things in the locker. If we do all these things properly, we can make a trip with a peaceful and happy mind.

7) Don’t go on a road trip without knowing your route.

When you go on a road trip, you should keep track of your route. Make sure there is no road under construction on the route we are going to travel Because if that's the case, you'll have to spend the day in traffic and no one wants to be stuck in traffic. 

Because of traffic, the fun of your trip is gone. So you have to make sure that you have checked your route and you are up-to-date with traffic information that will make your journey easier.

8) Keep The Car Speed In Check.

A road trip means you have no tension and roaming freely. So we want to go ahead and have fun looking at everything that comes in our way. You don't want to miss the best scenes because of traffic and other similar things.

To enjoy your road trip, you have to slow down your car in the mountains, valleys, and other such places. Not every time the GPS will tell you which location is beautiful. So at the time of the road trip, you want to keep your eyes open.

9) Avoid Littering.

We carry a lot of food on the road trip. But we eat only a few things and throw many of them away. This causes dirt everywhere in the car and our minds are distracted by it. The smell of food remains in the car, so clean it once you are done eating. Keep water bottles, paper towels, hand sanitizer in place. If you keep all these things in mind, you will have more accessibility while driving.

We do road trips for fun and for memories, if you avoid all these things while going on a road trip, undoubtedly your trip will be enjoyable and also memorable.
