When you run into some trouble, you may regret this impulsive decision. So, back to reality, you'd better do a careful route planning before you travel, not just see some beautiful place on the Internet and make a decision right away.

Three days of vacation may not sound too short, but you have to drive, rest and enjoy the landscape, so don't set your activities too much, it's harsh for you. A relaxing trip can be the most rewarding experience for travelers. Thankfully, you don't need to prepare a lot of items for this trip, which is relaxing for you.

If you have up to half a month to travel, perhaps with your partner out for a honeymoon, or a family trip. That's no problem whether it's a vacation to Hawaii, to some island, or Europe. Before taking a long trip, you need to consider everyone's suggestions and ideas to make sure everyone has an enjoyable trip. Some travel agencies can offer self-drive tours, which can provide some helpful advice for your long trip.

Keep your vehicle in good condition

In addition to planning routes, one thing that cannot be overlooked for every self-driver is to protect their cars before and while traveling, and to keep them in good condition through the trip. If your car is in excellent condition, then you will have a comfortable and smooth travel experience, and if you are traveling with the elderly or people with mobility problems, then you need to keep the speed as even as possible, because sudden braking or acceleration may cause discomfort to the passengers in the car.

The interior of your vehicle is important to maintain, but you also need to take care of the exterior cleaning. A day or two before you leave, you can clean your car and park it in a temporary carport if you don't have a well-built garage. A good, and sturdy portable carport will protect your car well.

If you are an RV enthusiast, then traveling in your RV is a great spring activity. You and your family don't have to worry about where to stay on the road or prepare a makeshift tent for lodging ahead of time.



You can use the refrigerator to keep food cold without worrying about food spoiling due to the weather. The maintenance of the RV will be more complicated before you leave and you will need to be more careful. Many RVers like to protect their mobile homes with a comfortable rv cover that keeps out dust, UV rays, rain and critters. 

Prepare a tent for easy rest

To ensure safe driving and a comfortable trip, adequate rest is necessary for travelers. When you feel the need to rest, you can park the car to a wide and less crowded area, and then set up a tent next to the car to rest and relax.

Some travelers are used to sleeping in the back of the vehicle at night, and they will wrap themselves in a sleeping bag, which is indeed a very convenient way. But this is not suitable for everyone, and for some travelers who are looking for comfort, the cramped space will affect their sleep and rest quality.


So to enhance the comfort level, prepare an easy to set up, space, sturdy and waterproof bed tent is worth considering. Comfortable space will bring you a good rest so that you have the energy to enjoy the next scenery.
