The most memorable vacation you’ll ever have will involve a road trip. These days many people are opting to hop in their vehicle and get out there on the open road. This amazing option for a vacation allows you to do what you want when you want, and save cash too!
Today we’re featuring tips for the most epic road trip so that you can feel inspired to plan an adult road trip this year with friends or perhaps just go solo. Enjoy our tips and may you enjoy a road trip this spring or summer season!
Who is Coming?
The first step for an epic road trip is to figure out who is riding along with you. You can bring the whole family, only adults, or do this as a friends-only trip to strengthen your friendships. You need to know who is going with you on this epic road trip before planning anything else.
Determine a Budget
Your next step with planning the most epic road trip is to determine a budget. Schedule a meeting with everyone involved in this road trip to see where you’re at with money. Create a spending budget based on what everyone can put into the “pot” for this road trip. Do not overspend!
Plan for Emergencies
While you’re determining a budget for the most epic road trip, be aware of funds for emergencies. Set aside some emergency funds so that you’re not stuck on some foreign location in a vehicle with no cash to spend to fix the car or get shelter should a huge emergency arise.
If you can bring credit cards for your epic road trip then please do. Do not use these credit cards unless a dire emergency arises, but you’ll want to have at least one credit card on hand in case places don’t accept cash or you run into some crazy emergency along the drive.
Make a Playlist
Whether it’s music or podcasts have everyone make a list of audio options to put on an epic road trip playlist. This will help keep you entertained during the long driving hours, plus give you something to sing along to make this road trip the most epic one of all.
Pack those Snacks
Do not forget about keeping your bellies full. You’ll want to have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand because some of those stores along the route may be expensive. Plus, if you’re traveling to remote locations you may not have access to a store for miles.
Plan the Route
Last, but not least, sit down with everyone and map out your epic road trip route. You’ll want to make time for pit stops, find places to sleep, and learn about all of the places you can stop off to enjoy or rest during your road trip. Make the route in Google Maps or use a regular old-school paper map.
These are just some of the best tips for the most epic road trip this summer. We hope that you’ll use our tips to plan an adventure of a lifetime this warm weather season!
