Road Trip Tips
Some of the most memorable vacations happen in the form of a road trip. Just make sure yours is memorable for the right reasons.
Whether you’re hitting the road for a few hours or embarking on a legendary cross-country drive, these tips will help stave off boredom, reduce arguments and keep you safe.
Devise a plan with your passengers.
It is always a good idea to discuss the trip with your fellow passengers so all are mostly agreed upon the basic timelines of stops, food breaks etc.
A lot of this depends on the reason for your trip, but in any case it is always best to have a rough idea of your timelines.
NeoCars will be able to assist you in stuff like places to stop, routes to take, etc. Just speak to our trip advisors when planning.
Cover distances during daylight
The best time to start your road trip is at 4 or 5 am in the morning, just before the sun rises. This way you get to beat the morning traffic and be out of the city in time to catch some sensational views of the sunrise. Leaving early also helps you cover the majority of your distance during daylight when it's the safest to drive.
NeoCars will always be available at your pick-up location at the time you decide.
Put together the perfect playlist ahead of time.
All cars are equipped with stereo systems with bluetooth / aux, so it is advisable to have your playlist ready before the trip so you do not waste time creating one on the way.
It is also advisable to have the playlist downloaded to your phone as on highways there might be poor reception in some parts leading to low streaming speeds.
Our drivers at NeoCars are also capable of playing music as per your preferences. Just request them and they will oblige.
Decide on your must-sees
It’s a good idea to figure out your must-see places before hitting the road. Speak to your co-passengers and make a list of sights you wish to cover on your journey and share the same with the driver in advance so they can plan the route as per the sights.
NeoCars will be able to provide an expert tour advisor who can help you plan these stops and devise a route for your travel.
