If you are planning a road trip with your family or friends, making sure you plan as much as possible can help you ensure a smooth trip. It is not possible to predict everything, but you can prepare as much as possible by reading the following article about road trip preparation tips.
Take your car insurance along
One of the most important things to pack for your next road trip is proof of insurance in your car and to make sure it is current. This will help you anywhere you go in case of an accident.
Travel with important phone numbers
You never know if you will need someone’s support or help. For this reason, it is important for you to carry a copy of important phone numbers and contact list of people that can assist you in case of a problem on the road. Start by adding the phone number of your insurance company’s claim line, your lawyer, and other family members and friends.
Not only do you need to make sure your road trip packing list includes a spare tire in good working condition (double-check!), but you also want to make sure you know how to change a flat tire.
Emergency car kit
This should have things like flares, jumper cables, gloves, rope, you name it. You can grab this cool kit that contains all the road trip essentials you need.
If you will be driving where it is cold and your car breaks down in the snow, having a blanket to keep warm while you wait for a service truck is a good item to have on hand if you need it. It’s better to have it and not need it, than it is to need it and not have it!
You’ve probably never even opened this back home, but the owner’s manual to your car can save you hours of frustration when you’re wondering what a specific indicator light means or how to access your fuse box. if you’re renting a car, make sure this is available!
