Tuesday Life Hack: 5 essential road trip hacks

Road trips can be very stressful especially if you are not prepared enough. Here are five essential hacks to help you while travelling on the road.

1. Always have your iced water handy

Driving in hot weather requires some serious stamina and concentration. To avoid any dehydration or having to drink warm water on a hot day, put water bottles in the freezer the night before you travel. You’ll be very thankful when you have a sip of that cold water.

2. Learn to change a tyre

Changing a tyre or dealing with a car breakdown is part and parcel of road tripping. Make sure you know what to do if you get a flat tyre.

3. Screenshot your directions

Having a GPS in your car or cellphone makes the road tripping much more pleasant experience. What happens if your network stops working? Take screenshots or photos of your directions for those emergency situations.

4. Never forget your parking spot

Finding your car at a busy stop, mall or parking area might be a headache you do not want to face when travelling. Save the pin of where you parked your car and you’ll never forget where you have parked.

5. Jump start your car

What happens if you’re driving on the road and your battery suddenly dies? You might have to jump start your car using another car.
