Tips for long distance driving

Long distance driving can be a daunting task. It takes concentration, focus, and a lot of energy out of us. Hopefully with the tips below, your next long distance trip is more pleasant!

Stay hydrated
Remember to keep yourself topped up. Long distance driving can be seen as an endurance task, and you need to make sure your reflexes are in top shape for any of these things.
Plan your stops
When deciding on going for a long drive, remember to choose where and when you are going to stop. Breaking down your journey into smaller, more manageable sections will make the trip go faster, and give you somewhere to pop to the toilet, get food and drink, or just not have to worry for a short period of time.
Fuel up
Normally with driving when we say fuel up, we mean your car, but this time we mean you! You’re just as important to keep fuelled up and going for long distances. Remember to take some snacks with you, or to stop during the journey to grab something.
Make sure you’ve had enough sleep
Driving when tired is just as dangerous to you, your passengers, and other motorists on the road as if you were to drive under the influence. Remember to get a good amount of sleep the night before the big drive. Even stop for a short while when driving if you feel tired. Make sure you are concentrating 100% before driving.

Hopefully these tips will help you the next time you go long distance driving, but feel free to ask us for any more!

Safe driving, from Brittania!
