ROAD TRIP TIPS 🚙🗺️⠀
Road trips are a lot of fun! You have the freedom to go wherever you want and spend there as much time as you wish. Travelling by car has a lot of benefits. To make sure that everything will go according to plan there are some tips on how to get prepared for a road trip:⠀
1️⃣ Get a practical car. If you rent a car, make sure to choose wisely and select a car for its practicality and reliability and not for its coolness. You'll spend a lot of time in that vehicle and I can assure you that convertible is not suitable for road trips⠀
2️⃣ Check your car. If you use your own car it's better to do a service check before you go. You might also want to check a spare wheel and tools to fix the car in case something happens. Or get a roadside assistance⠀
3️⃣ Plan your trip ahead and get to know what kind of roads are on your way. It's good to understand if you have to take gravel roads, go off-road, need to pay for toll roads or take ferries. There also can be road closures⠀
4️⃣ Download a navigation app to your smartphone. I recommend using Waze as it works almost everywhere in the world. If you can, get offline maps. If your car has built-in satellite navigation (like this BMW X3) - it's definitely a huge benefit⠀
5️⃣ Make sure to let your family and friends know where you go and your approximate schedule. There is no cellular reception - don't make them worried⠀
6️⃣ Take loyalty cards. It will help to save money on fuel (I'm registered with all gas stations in NZ) as well as on groceries while travelling⠀
7️⃣ Create a couple of playlists on your favourite music streaming service (I prefer Spotify) and download them so you can listen offline⠀
8️⃣ Always have snacks in your car. It helps to save money and time because you don't have to stop every hour and get food⠀
9️⃣ Constantly check your fuel level. At some rural areas, there are no gas stations (like at the Forgotten World Highway) and you obviously don't want to run out of fuel in the middle of nowhere. Never have less than a quarter of a tank left⠀
🔟 Have fun! Make unexpected stops, turn music louder, open windows and enjoy the scenery. This is going to be one of the best tri
You make me believe in the light because of your light.
