Whether it’s spontaneous or planned for years, your road trip can get massively derailed without a bit of preparation. Even when carefully planned, the most obvious details are often forgotten in the excitement. Here are three often-forgotten tips for enjoying your next road trip.
Check Ahead for Lodging
Check out availability where you plan to spend the night. There is nothing worse than pulling in ready to get some shuteye only to discover that the whole town is booked solid. If you are hitting a larger area, concerts and conventions can mean not hotels rooms or camping space, and it only takes one big wedding or funeral to wipe out all of the lodging in a small town.
Take Your Cell Phone Charger and a Real Map
You probably rely on your cell phone for information on-the-go, so don’t forget your charger, and it wouldn’t hurt to keep a spare in the glove box, just in case you can’t find the one you’re sure you remembered to pack. But, don’t be surprised if you hit pockets where there is no service. Yes, they are still out there. This is where a real paper map can get you back to civilization.
Double-Check Your Emergency Basics
Hopefully, you already have a basic emergency kit in your car. If not, here’s a reminder of some must-have items:
- Jumper cables
- A jack and properly inflated spare tire
- Water and snacks
