But when its family and a lot of luggage, things can get messy. Rod trips need to be planned out properly, and planning needs to involve even the minute details. We are suggesting some hacks that can make road trips a little more smoother for you people
1.Pack cleverly, save space
Travelling with family, especially kids, means a lot of luggage. Now, if the car is full of luggage, where will the family sit? If you pack smartly, it might solve the problem to some extent. Instead of folding the clothes, roll them and pack. Pack your shoes in the shower cap. This will save a lot of space, and you can pack in one bag, what will otherwise take at least two bags. Go ahead, try it!
2.Be Emergency ready always
You can never predict your health, when on a road trip. Make sure you are carrying the basic medicines for fever, headache and upset stomach. Also, a first aid kit is a must. If you are all set for some emergency situations, unnecessary stops won’t be required and you can make to your destination in the defined time.
3.Keep the kids busy
Kids are most easily bored. And when they are bored and jobless, even the smoothest of road trips can witness a turn of events! The trick is to pack along some surprise activities for them. Print coloring pages and bind them into a book. Take some playing cards, a Rubik’s cube and a Lego set. The busier they are, the more lesser trouble they are to cause.
4.How about a mini fridge?
Put your money in a personal fridge. You can store beverages and other edible items and use them when required. This can be a good investment, and provide chilled drinks and food as fresh as new!
5.Use and throw
Instead of keeping utensils and towels, opt for paper napkins and plastic utensils. Once the eating is done with, you can throw the napkins and utensils and there will be no tension of washing the dishes and towels.
