Plan your stopovers

Long-distance driving may sound like it is a piece of cake especially for passengers and for seasoned drivers out there. In reality, the trip can be very difficult for everyone.

Being the designated driver means you need to be alert and awake all the time and passengers can be bored to death leaving them with no choice but to sleep or keep busy with their gadgets. Plus the additional back and muscle strain from sitting for long periods of time can leave everyone in discomfort.

Stretch your muscles

Sitting still for long hours can cause a lot of discomforts. Experiencing back pain, neck pain and muscle cramps are just some of the most common conditions that you may experience. But even if its common it doesn't necessarily mean that we have to ignore these scenarios.

Bring some pillows

Long drives can definitely make passengers fall asleep in a matter of hours. In order to make them feel comfortable, better make sure to bring some pillows with you.

Since traditional bedroom pillows are heavier and bulkier you can opt for a travel neck pillow that is filled with micro balls or the inflatable version will also be good enough.

Car pillows will be your best friend, especially during long trips

Do not overload the vehicle

We all know at this point that long driving can cause discomfort for everyone. Another thing that can add to their discomfort is the lack of legroom and headroom. To avoid these from happening it's either to limit your passengers or look for a bigger car.

It is better to have a convoy rather than an overloaded car

Dress appropriately for the trip

Long hours spent on the road and inside the car can be uncomfortable especially if we are wearing the wrong type of clothing. It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing made of cotton so you can move freely without being too conscious about your movements.  

Bring your car to a mechanic for a check-up

Make sure that it is in tip top shape. Make sure that the car is in good condition before deciding to use it on a road trip. A car breaking down in the middle of nowhere is every traveler's nightmare.

Because not only it's going to cause a lot of inconveniences but you will definitely end up spending money.

Regular maintenance will prevent future problems that can take time and money
