Road Trip and Ready to Go

Road_Tripping_El_Mundo_Safaris

Road-Tripping is the best way to explore near and far destinations. Traveling is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and something that comes pre-packaged with memories to cherish and share. Whether you’re planning a once-in-lifetime safari adventure or just a weekend escape, the world is your playground. If you are planning to drive to your destination, however, it pays to prepare ahead of time so that you arrive safely and ready to explore. Here is some essential advice for preparing your vehicle for a road trip.

You can road trip with your family while enjoying beautiful sceneries or listening to your favorite podcast. Road Tripping is becoming a new way to give yourself time off when we can. There are are many stunning wildness, national parks, beaches, mountains, cities, villages  and much more awaiting to be explored.  These are few  tips you can consider if you are planing your road trip this summer or dreaming for one in the near future. We are now customizing some of our El Mundo Expedition to fit on your road trip idea.

Plan Your Activities

First of all, it helps to have an idea of what you will be doing while on your road trip. A little planning will help you better estimate how many miles you’ll be driving, as well as help keep everyone on the same page for activities.

Depending on where you go, there are numerous activities you could do.

Look Into Your Auto Insurance

You’ll want to make sure everything is lined up with your auto insurance. Insurance policies change often, and sometimes you need to revisit your plan so that you fully understand what your coverage entails — especially if your plan automatically renews. For instance, ask yourself what all would be covered if you were in an accident. Learn as much as possible about your insurance policy— it never hurts to revisit car insurance 101 — so that you can be better equipped and have peace of mind as you hit the road.

We strongly recommend insurance which will cover their International travels while in our tours.

Check Your Brake Pads

One of the first maintenance tasks you should tackle is examining your brake pads. Brake pads are responsible for providing the friction necessary to stop or slow your vehicle, and when they’re not working sufficiently, it can be bad news. If you hear a high-pitched screeching noise when you brake, it could mean that your brake pads are all but gone, meaning that your brakes are basically grinding metal to metal. Even if your brake pads are not making noises, however, it’s important to check them before you set out.

Check Your Tires

Having tires that are in good shape is also essential for a road trip. If you notice that the tread on your tires is a little worn, look at the other side of each tire; if there is good tread on the other side, consider rotating them — switching between the driver side, passenger side, rear, and front. Rotating your tiresperiodically helps to prolong the life of your tires and keep your vehicle riding smoothly and safely. If you can see cracks, dry rot, or bubbles in the sidewalls of your tires, get them replaced immediately.

Check Your Fluids

There are six critical fluids that help your vehicle run well:

  • Engine oil
  • Transmission fluid
  • Brake fluid
  • Radiator fluid (i.e., antifreeze, coolant)
  • Power steering fluid
  • Windshield wiper fluid

Each of these fluids requires their own servicing, so it’s important to check all of them. Most cars newer than 10 years need an oil change every 5,000 miles (or six months); most cars 10 years or older should have an oil change every 3,000 miles. Calculate how many miles you will take on your trip to figure out if you need to change the oil before you leave or during your trip.

Some of the fluids, like radiator fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield wiper fluid, can simply be topped off if you see that the reservoir is low.

Preparing is key to a good tour being Wildlife Safari, Mountain Climbing, Bicycle Tours or Road Trip. Plan activities that you and those with you will enjoy, and look into your auto insurance plan to make sure you have the coverage you need. And don’t forget to perform any necessary maintenance on your vehicle, such as the brake pads, tires, and fluids. Once you’re all ready, hit the road and leave your worries behind!

We spoke with our clients who manage to join some of our tours which a lot of people say they can not afford or they don’t time and so on. We find our those who manage to them they do them because they plan. Long team or short team plans will make you take on that road trip or tour you wanted for long time. Join us on the journey to explore the world.
