Our spring road trip guide

The sun is out and warmer days are here. So what better time of the year to make the most of your car and hit the road? Here are our tips to really make the most of the longer days and lighter weather.

Give your car a quick check

Before you set out on any spring road trip, itís important to have a thorough check of the essentials of your car. Is the oil level as it should be? Does your car have enough water? Are the tyres at the right pressure level? Even though you are unlikely to be surprised by a sudden heatwave, having a check anyway will give you peace of mind should the sun come out in full.

Stock up on supplies

Spring means the roads are busier, which means the dreaded traffic jam is more likely to occur. Long hours spent stuck on the road in hot weather can take a toll on you and your passengers. So why not come prepared? Having water and snacks onboard can help keep you going. And you may even want to take a cool box for added refreshment.

Plan your journey in advance

Now that we all have a GPS on our smartphone, we might be tempted to leave the route to the computer. But the last thing you want is to be confronted by roadworks or congestion that you might have spotted with a look in advance. And while the GPS will suggest an alternate route to take, it might not be the most ideal for your journey. So take a look the night before and see the roads you will want to take.

Have fun exploring

We all often have that conversation with our loved ones that we need to make the most of the good weather. So why not sit down with your friends and family and have a look at the attractions you want to visit. Create a list and tick them off as you visit them, giving you a real sense of accomplishment. And if you do it now, youíll beat the school summer holiday rush!
