How to prepare for a long car journey – no win no fee* in Cottingham
If you are taking a long car journey anywhere then it is helpful to be prepared for any eventuality. You will want to make sure that you are safe and avoid accidents, but will also simply want to ensure that your journey goes as smoothly as possible, because nothing can be more frustrating than finding yourself stuck somewhere, lost or with an extra hour added onto your journey. Here are some ways in which you can be prepared for whatever a long car journey might throw at you.
Plan your journey in minute detail
Decide exactly where you are going to go on your journey, work out how long each part of your journey will take and how and where you will take your breaks. Although it may seem like overkill to plan your journey in this much depth, it actually helps to stop you getting lost or losing your way, looking for a place to stay or somewhere to eat.
Pack an emergency kit
An emergency kit should contain a first aid kit, tools and emergency supplies should your car break down, and food and blankets in case you are stuck somewhere overnight. It can be useful to bring a spare mobile phone with you as well, in case your current phone runs out of battery and then you get lost or stuck somewhere.
Bring emergency numbers
This does not just mean the number of the emergency services. Bring the number for a breakdown service close to where you will be travelling, the number of a hotel or bed and breakfast on the way that can give you directions to there if you need somewhere to stay overnight and so on.
