Planning your roadtrip

Getting a general idea of the direction you want to go in for your roadtrip is a good idea. There are many websites you can have a look at to get a general idea of where you’re going to stay, unless you have a granny in every town you pass by we would advise it. Discoversouthafrica.co.za is a great example of looking for some cheap and luxury accommodations and you’ll be saving money for extra provisions for the long roads. If you’re not in South Africa then you can join local travel groups or follow your countries top notch travel or accommodation sites.

Take the scenic route

Instead of sticking on the highway, you should plan trips through the countryside. The view is a lot better and you might be surprised at the amazing little shops you’ll find along the road. If you’re not too knowledgeable about the area then take a scenic route with towns in between so that you know you’ll get some help if needed.

Need to save money on gas? Then install an app!

The amazing world of iphones and android phones are upon us. I’ve installed this informative little app which tells me the best prices for gas as I drive to my destination. Some apps also give you warnings about high traffic, roadworks and more.

Here’s a list of useful apps we’ve found for travelling:

And finally, keep your eyes on the road

In all seriousness, we would love it if everybody arrives safely at their destination, so remember these 5 golden rules in safety:

  • Wear your seatbelt, it’s the latest fashion
  • Buy a Bluetooth headset, now you can talk and keep your eyes on the road
  • Check your car for any leaks and no duct taping it isn’t a good idea
  • Keep an eye on your warning indicators, they’re there for a reason
  • Check those tyres, the more grip on the road you have the better!

And most of all have fun, we hope you have a great drive!
