Check your vehicle
If possible, have your vehicle serviced before a long trip. At minimum, check the tyres, lights, drive belts, windscreen wipers, radiator water, coolant, oil – you know the drill. It only takes a few minutes to do these checks, but it will give you great peace of mind.
If you are venturing far, it may pay to upgrade your AANT membership. AANT’s top membership AANT Premium covers more of life’s everyday motoring challenges, giving you complete peace of mind wherever you are in Australia. Benefits include specialist towing, taxis, accommodation, airfares, pet transport, unlimited annual call-outs and more.
Travelling with children
Make sure everyone has been to the loo before setting off. Take games, music, audio books and videos to occupy the little ones. Pillows and blankets make travel more comfortable. Have plenty of healthy snacks and drinks on board, wet wipes freshening up and a small rubbish bag to keep the car tidy.
Plan to stop
Set a realistic travel time and schedule regular stops for coffee, stretching your legs and sharing the driving. Make the journey and the breaks part of the holiday so that you arrive fresh and in good spirits – not stressed out from a long hard trip.
