How can I make less stops on a road trip ?

Whether you’re traveling with children or not, long road trips usually become even longer due to frequent stops. While it is not entirely possible to continue driving until you reach your destination, you can still lessen multiple stops by following these useful tips:

1) Fill up your gas tank – Before leaving for a road trip, make sure your tank is filled with gas to prevent any extra stops for gas.

2) Bring food and drinks – Pack your cooler with drinks and buy plenty of food before leaving, especially if you have kids on board. Making food and drinks available would eliminate additional stops that you might make when you and your kids become hungry. Make sure you allow your kids to choose the foods they want when shopping for groceries, so they won’t have any excuses on what type of foods they’d like to eat. Not only does this allow you to save gas, it could also save money since you don’t have to eat out.

In addition, make sure to avoid caffeinated drinks because caffeine increases the need to urinate. Go for drinks that could keep you awake, but still won’t cause you to go to the restroom unplanned.

3) Practice wise driving – Before leaving the house, create a travel plan or an itinerary. While it is more fun to travel spontaneously, learning the roads to take and checking out the gas stations and diners you’ll be driving by eliminates the need to make stops for asking directions. In addition, you should plan to stop over for gas, food and restroom at once to save time and money while keeping you on the road more.

Following these tips not only lessen the need to make multiple stops during a road trip, but also saves gas, which in turn, saves you money.
