Over the last year, things have changed a lot, but our need to travel hasn’t. If you are planning a road trip and getting away from it all, then you need to plan and do it right. With the continued pandemic, the health and safety of you and your loved ones will be the most important thing, so take a little extra time to plan your adventure.
When planning your road trip during the pandemic, you need to have these things in mind.
Is Your Car Ready for the Adventure?
You won’t get very fa if your car is not in the best of shape. Ensure that your vehicle has been for its service when it was meant to and if you haven’t done it, then now is the time. Inspect your tyres to ensure that there is enough thread remaining for your trip. You also need to check the water, oil and battery.
Less Spontaneity and More Planning
It might sound adventurous to just stop wherever and stay wherever during your road trip, but with the current pandemic, you need to be more careful and select your places.If you are planning to eat at restaurants along the way then ensure that they are COVID-19 compliant and offer outdoor seating. With accommodation, once again make sure they are compliant and take a look at their regulations, so you know you will be safe.
Don’t Forget the Essentials
When packing for your trip, you need to remember the extras that you need. These essentials will include enough sanitiser, masks that you will need to wash regularly along the way and other emergency items like a first aid kit. Also, don’t forget to pack your camera, a power bank, cell phone and plenty of water.
Your adventure is waiting for you and if you have been bitten by the travel bug, then just remember to be careful, research places and pack your necessary items for the journey ahead.
