It is extremely important to have the right kind of vehicle. You got to know and if you don't then find out the terrain you will be driving on. If it's a rough terrain, then make sure you have a 4 by 4. If it is a normal paved road, you could go in for a sedan as well.
Secondly, you ought to know what kind of fuel to use. You must know the breakdown assistance for that vehicle and you have the right kind of insurance as well.
While going on a road trip, please ensure that you have the map and you know the route to the destination. You should have a rough estimate of the time that it will take for you to reach there, how many pit stops can you adjust in the schedule, whereall can you eat proper food. Chart out the entire trip. It is not a good experience when you find yourself stuck in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere. We all have a GPS now but what will you o if the network dips? Make sure you have offline maps.
