- Be sure to check the weather forecast and road conditions before setting off. This is especially important if you’re exploring a new destination. Make sure you have the local emergency phone number, insurance details, and a charged mobile phone.
- Its worth packing a few bottles of water, extra food and a blanket in case you end up off course. Some extra treats and snacks are always appreciated too.
- Bring a back-up map. One of the worst things that can happen comes in the form of a malfunctioning sat-nav. While navigation technology is helpful, its wise not to put all your faith in it. Make sure you have at least one hard copy of a road map just in case.
