A Traveller’s Guide: 7 Preparation Tips before Long Road Trips

Friends on road trip relaxing by the van. Group of men and women travelling together in an old minivan.

Everyone can be really anxious a day before the trip. Sometimes, the last few hours before a trip can be really crucial. Then, there is a sense of panic when the last couple of hours before the long road trip start to sink in.

There is nothing to worry about when you give it an ample amount of time to prepare. Here are some pre-traveling tips to avoid the stress and exhaustion:

  1. Get enough sleep two nights before the trip. It won’t seem like much, but getting a good night’s sleep two nights before the trip would help you control your panic for the night before your long road trip. Your mind is well-rested and fresher for preparations. When the night before the trip arrives, you will sleep better, knowing your well-prepared for travel.
  2. Make a packing list for all the items you have to bring on the trip. This packing list can come in very handy, and it is a good way to be more prepared. This way, you won’t have to worry about forgetting anything.
  3. Don’t forget to bring items for your entertainment on the trip. Either pack a book or carry a tablet, bringing these along will prevent times of boredom.
  4. Always make sure you have a neck pillow for power naps during the trip. Your eyes need the break as well. You will never know when you will need the neck pillow.
  5. Hydrate before the trip. Hydrate during the trip. Hydrate more after the trip. Hydration is one of the ways to keep you active during the trip. Keep a bottle of water packed in your bag.
  6. Make sure you do not skip meals, even hours before the trip. Your energy is important for long road trips. Skipping meals would mean getting hungry during the trip, and places to buy food won’t always be accessible. Make sure you eat before the trip and pack some healthy snacks.
  7. Make sure you do a hygiene-check before the trip. Go to the toilet, and urinate; wash your hands and face again. Traveling isn’t easy, but keeping yourself fresh and clean may make it worth-while.
