Default Car travel tips


Here are more tips....

* Keep your pets safe and secure in a well-ventilated crate or carrier. There are a variety of wire mesh, hard plastic and soft-sided carriers available. Whatever you choose, make sure itís large enough for your pet to stand, sit, lie down and turn around in. And P.S., itís smart to get your pet used to the carrier in the comfort of your home before your trip.

* Get your pet geared up for a long trip by taking him on a series of short drives first, gradually lengthening time spent in the car. And please be sure to always secure the crate so it wonít slide or shift in the event of a quick stop.

* Your petís travel-feeding schedule should start with a light meal three to four hours prior to departure. Donít feed your furry friend in a moving vehicleóeven if it is a long drive.

* Never leave your animal alone in a parked vehicle. On a hot day, even with the windows open, a parked automobile can become a furnace in no time, and heatstroke can develop. In cold weather, a car can act as a refrigerator, holding in the cold and causing the animal to freeze to death.

Fill it up – Of course y our fuel tank is your lifeline in road trips especially in cars in India, so keep it fully loaded prior to embark on your voyage. Also check up the tyres of your car along with the spares and other car parts.

Road trip Ideas – Pack a stock of energy bars and energy drinks to fuel you in between the trip. Also do not forget to pack car tool kit and other necessary equipments to fix the car in case of any breakdown.

Plan ahead – Planning in advance is always helpful especially when you are the only route guide in the travel through out the trip. Draw a map for route in advance that you may refer while driving to an unknown destination.

Stretch a bit – Take halts at short distances and stretch your body to feel relaxed during travel . You may even take a power nap at the roadside eatery and can savor the local food as well to refresh you.
