When you are planning a trip by road, make sure you take follow tips so that you can comfortably and easily reach your destination. You will schedule your road trip in advance and don't just think about packing.

Before you get behind the wheel, you should prepare for a long ride.Which type of car you need depends on your destination, the type of journey and the number of people.

Before and during your journey, clean your car. Don’t leave napkins and snacks under the seats. Unnecessary paper documents will make your car clumsy and uncomfortable. God forbid if your drinks or wrappers gets mixed up with your luggage and seats then the rest of the journey will be a pain. These minor stuff can turn into a catastrophe if not handled as soon as they occur.

About a week before you go on a long journey, check with your mechanic how fluid the vehicle rates, the brakes, tires, etc. are.Make sure your spare tire is fully inflated and you have enough fluid and jumper cables.

Pull over and rest when you're tired while driving. Consider a nap of about 30 minutes if it's halfway through the day. Stay inside a motel if it becomes dark. If your body says it needs rest, it is not worth risking your health.

Know some boredom avoidance tricks. In a road trip you have to travel through locations that have no views. For such moments, it can be helpful to have your favorite podcast or audio book or music system, making those long miles a little quicker.

If you have a travelling companion then ask them to navigate so your full attention is on driving.

Make sure you have the rules for the road you're visiting in the country. Don’t forget to check that country’s official government or tourist sites for driving advice. 

You should ensure that you do not only survive a road journey, but also have a good preparation before the trip and a good attitude during the journey. Enjoy this one in a lifetime experience.
