How to Make Your Trip Pleasant

Before your trip in the van, make sure you do some pre-planning to make your trip more enjoyable. For instance, make sure you bring pillows and blankets for a nap. Be sure to have water and snacks in the van, so you do not have to stop all the time for a meal. Also, be sure to have a first-aid kit just in case. Here are a few other suggestions for you:

  • Live local. When you stop or arrive at your destination, be sure to shop at the local grocery store for food, find free activities to enjoy and make small talk to discover what the natives do in their free time.
  • Fill up your gas tank in town. Fuel is always cheaper in town than on the expressways or toll roads. When you are visiting an area, be sure to check your gas gauge.
  • Put a road hazard kit in your car. To be on the safe side, if you end up having car trouble or a flat tire, it is in your best interest to have flairs.
