Before leaving, sit down with everyone who will be traveling with you and plan out the route, any places you’ll want to stop along the way (for food or other things), and determine how long of a drive each of these places will take. If you’re traveling with children, bring some small toys for them to play with and keep entertained in the car.

Before leaving on a long trip, it’s important to ensure that your car is in good shape and will get you where you’re planning on going. You should also check fluid levels, brakes, tires and other important parts of your car to make sure everything is in working order.
