Travelling by Car
Many people ask me, am I travelling to other countries by plane only or by car also ? What are the Travel tips I can share?
My first travel by car was to this petit but reach country Luxembourg it’s only 2-3 hours drive from my City.
Here are the tips for those european residence like me who wanted to travel to other countries via car and take note its better if you make a list for this to make sure you won’t forget anything at all.
Travel Tips while travelling by car: (5-9 hours)
Make copies of your vehicular documents
This is regarding to your permit, vehicles permit and etc. including your passport and ID for Europeans only ID but for foreigners residence passport is a must when you travel outside the country that you reside of course and bring your ID with you.
Bring duplicates of your keys
(car key and house key) and definitely put them separately, we never know in case you’ll lose your keys at least you still have a copy of it same as your ID’s and Permits.
Bring car food, water, juices
to keep you hydrated, for food this includes non oily stuffs, biscuits, fruits or you can make pack sandwiches ahead and bring it with you.
However if you’re a coffee addict like me you can also bring a thermos filled with hot water and coffee in sachet or just hot coffee directly on your thermos.
For those who prefer to eat properly you can always make a stop at some gas stations which have restaurants and make a pause and eat peacefully.
- Bring your GPS, smart phone with GPS application
If you don’t have it download it from apple store or play store for android users there are lots of GPS app that you can download. it’s very useful cause even though you don’t have any internet you can still use it offline.
Are the most important for those geeks who bring laptops and tablets with them, or those who use a lot of their phones chargers are really useful.
Blankets and Pillows or Head Pillows
For those who travel at night head pillows are essential especially when taking a break after 3-4 hours of driving but take note you must stop every 2 hours of driving.
When driving at night it’s better to take a nap for 30-40 minutes and take the stirring wheel again.
Bring First Aid Kit, Medicines
Pain relievers, head aches, nicks, and for other pains that you might possibly suffer. band aids, creams and sprays for anti mosquitos.
- Wipes, Toilet papers, Paper towels , Plastic Bags and Tissues.
Bring Emergency road Kit,
Bring the most that you use in case something might come unexpectedly. Don’t foget extra batteries, or power bank and flashlight.
Is very important in case of spills we never know mostly for those who are travelling with kids.
Travel Games, PS3, PS4 or other gadgets
Would be great for those who get bored really quick.
This is my primary list to follow when I’m travelling by car. If you have any suggestions don’t hesitate to comment. tell me your list too I would love to know.
