So you want to take a Roadtrip

If you’ve decided it’s time to channel Thelma and Louise and embark upon your own road trip of a lifetime, you’ve come to the right place. There’s nothing quite like the freedom of a road trip and the feel of the breeze blowing through your hair. If you’re making plans, here are some tips to ensure you enjoy an unforgettable trip (for all the right reasons, of course!) ~

Where are you going?

Perhaps the first and most important thing to do is choose your destination. Where do you want to travel to, and how far will your road trip take you? Are you going to drive to a destination and stop along the way? Are you following a set track, like Route 66 or the Pacific Highway? Or are you free-styling and going where the wind takes you? Spontaneity is exciting and refreshing, but it is a good idea to have some rough plans in place.

How are you getting there?

Once you’ve decided where you are going, it’s logical to work out how you’re going to get to your destination. Are you going to hire or buy a new or used RV? Are you going to take your car? If you’re thinking of renting a motorhome or an RV, search online to compare prices. If you’re buying, always make sure you have a good look at the vehicle before agreeing to a deal. Now that you are all set, rev up that engine and get going!

How long are you going for and what do you need?

Most of us have commitments which prevent us from travelling for long periods of time. Think about how long you can take off work to take your trip. If you’re lucky enough to have all the time in the world, it may be a good idea to have a rough time-frame in mind. Once you know how long you’re going for and where you’re going to, get to the packing. Make a list of all essentials, and give yourself time to get sorted.

Where are you staying?

If you’ve rented an RV or a motorhome, look out for spots along your route to stop off. If you haven’t sorted accommodation, and you don’t want to camp, research hotels and guesthouses. Often, you can bag great deals online. If you haven’t got a watertight itinerary, it may be best to book the first couple of nights and then sort out hotels as you go.

What do you want to do?

When you’re planning your road trip, consider what you want to do and see. Make a list of attractions and sights and work out what kinds of activities you’d like to try. Of course, you’ll probably come across additional places you want to visit on your travels. But planning ahead will help to ensure that you don’t miss out on anything you’re desperate to try or see. There may be towns or cities you want to visit, or adventure pursuits you’re eager to experience.
