Essential Checklist Before Going For a Road Trip in Brisbane

There is nothing like packing up the car for a day trip or weekend getaway travelling the beautiful scenic spots of NSW. We know the love for the country, and for all those that do love the refreshing scenic drives, Prestige Car Removal Brisbane offers the following tips to ensure you have all the essentials ready for your road trip.

  • Itinerary

Planning your trip out will help be a bit more organised. Knowing the time, you’ll require each day for activities, rest stops, and designated driver changes. It is also important, especially if travelling alone that you leave your itinerary with a friend or family member, so someone knows where you are in case you fail to return home.

  • Map & GPS

You may be venturing out on the road you are familiar with, or travelling to places that are new. Regardless, you don’t want to get lost along the way. Bring a map or make sure your GPS is updated so that you don’t waste time going in circles.

  • Jump Starter Kit

A fully charged mobile phone is necessary and so is having chargers in case the unexpected occurs- your battery dies.

  • Check Your Tyres & Fluids

Before going on any venture, it is important that your car is in good condition. Before you start your journey check your tyres’ pressure and tread depth along with the condition of your spare tyre. Be sure that your car is in good running condition. Check the oil, windshield washer fluid, brake fluid, coolant, etc.

  • Insurance & Roadside Assistance Papers

If the car breaks down while travelling, you don’t want to be stuck on the road. Be sure that your car is insured and that you have your roadside assistance papers handy.

  • Emergency Kits

Your emergency kit should include your basic car repair tools, a flash light, and a first aid kit. Other things to consider include wet wipes and paper towels, tow rope, multi-purpose knife, and compass.

  • Pillows & Blankets

Pillows and blankets are more for passenger comfort. If the car breaks down, you may need a little of their comfort yourself.

  • Food & Beverage

Stopping at rest areas or a meadow picnic during the trip is less costly than restaurants. Pack food and drinks and even if you don’t plan on anything but eating out, you’ll still appreciate being able to grab a cold beverage, or having a snack when you pull over to rest.

  • Music

Be sure that you have your music selection prepared for listening to your favourite tunes on the road.
