What’s Keeping You From Taking A Road Trip?

One of the great vacation ideas that has been around since before the automobile was invented is the taking of a good road trip. There are a great deal of variables that make one road trip very different from the next one. There are really only two essentials when it comes to taking a road trip; the first one is a road or route, and the second one is some kind of vehicle to propel you down the road. The rest is entirely up to you.

Problem: You don’t have a suitable vehicle to take a road trip with.
Solution: If you don’t have a vehicle, or the right vehicle, to take a road trip with, there are options available to you that you may not even think of. In many regions, towns are spaced as close together as two to ten miles, if this is the case then you can take a bike road trip. Ride from one town to the next and then return by the same or different route. Another option is renting a car, or better yet renting an RV.

Holiday Travel

If you are intending to travel anywhere on holiday this year, whether at home or abroad, then it is important that you understand a few basic travel guidelines to ensure your holiday runs smoothly.

* Dealing with Illness before or during your holiday – firstly if you are travelling abroad it is advisable for you to check whether you need any preventative injections or treatments before you go, to give you added protection against illnesses like malaria or yellow fever. This is not necessary for most countries in Europe, but if you are travelling anywhere that is remote or tropical, then it is likely some injections will be necessary. Secondly you need to ensure you have adequate health and holiday insurance that will cover you if you fall ill either just before or during your holiday. A good insurance plan will cover your losses if you or a member of your family are too ill to actually go on the booked holiday, and will also cover healthcare costs if you fall ill whilst away and need medical treatment. Most tour operators insist you take out insurance these days as part of the holiday package, and make sure you take the details of the policy and the contact numbers with you when you are away.
