It’s amazing how many holidays have been ruined by poor preparation. Failing to prepare for a variety of contingencies can mean that your vacation falls flat before it even gets started. There are all sorts of things that you should consider, from the weather to the culture, but – especially in the case of long road trips – one of the most important factors to consider is your vehicle.
Whether it’s running out of petrol or deflated tyres, there are so many things that can go wrong, and the nature of these holidays means that when disaster strikes, it will normally happen far from where you can get help. So keep a variety of safeguards in place to make sure that everything goes smoothly when you’re on holiday, from tyre pressure monitors to make sure your tyres are up to scratch to an extra tyre in the back. And if you’re going on rocky roads, then a rear vision camera can really help safe driving.
