If you want to have the best road trip of your life, then follow these pointers to ensure you get the most out of your vacation.
Use Apps to Help You Plan
Smartphone apps like Roadtrippers and OnTheWay can help you plan your route and think up cool things to do on the way. Also, you should have at least two navigation apps in case one fails you and maybe bring a backup GPS, too.
Pay Attention to the Weather
If you’re traveling a long distance, the weekly forecast for your destinations may be drastically different than the forecast for your hometown, so check ahead of time.
Be Smart with Your Money
Find ways to save on the open road (apps like GasBuddy and HotelTonight can prevent you from falling into tourist price traps, for example) and decide on a budget ahead of time.
Pack Like a Pro
While you may feel organized separating all your stuff into different bags, consolidating as much of your luggage as possible is actually more efficient in the long run. Also, plan the outfit for your first destination in advance and make sure it’s at the top for easy access.
Get Your Car Checked in Advance
This is a biggie. If you’re heading out on a road trip, you want your car to be in top-notch condition to prevent a flat or a breakdown.
