Road Trip Hacks

Along with an itch for adventure and an open mind, here’s what you need to create the perfect road trip experience:

#1 MUST-HAVES IN THE BACKPACK
You’re going to be on the move – all the time – so be sure to travel light. You don’t want to be lugging heavy suitcases up and down flights of stairs, in local transport and across busy neighborhoods. Draw out a checklist of travel essentials and pack them in place of all the ‘in-case-I-need’ extra clothing and shoes. Here are a few to armour you on the journey – notepad and pen, power bank and chargers, swiss knife, medicines, a small pocket torch, umbrella, water bottle and a snack box.

#2 STAY ON TRACK // NEVER LOSE YOUR PATH
Take the road less travelled, yet don’t lose sight of where you’re going. The Mahindra XUV500 comes with a reliable GPS system and navigates all terrains with ease as it directs you, sans any distraction, on to the best route and a comfortable drive.

If you prefer, use the Android auto for seamless tech experience. make sure to get a mobile holder for the car before you hit the road.

#3 BE A MINDFUL ROADTRIPPER
No matter where you go, leave just your footprints – and not empty bottles, wrappers, banana peels, et al. Carry your own water bottle to keep refilling on the journey – who needs more plastic waste? Leave the place cleaner than you found it!

#4 AN EPIC ROAD PLAYLIST
What are road trips without music! It turns the views more scenic and head a little more dreamy. Plus time flies when we’re having fun! Carry your favourite songs to sing along to, and learn some new tunes as your co-passengers turn DJ.

#5 BLOCK THE SUN
The further you go from the city into cleaner climes, the stronger the sun will beat, and without a warning. Stay guarded with window shades, a good sunblock, sunglasses, and a head cover (hat/ cap/scarf). Also make sure you’re always carrying water; the last thing you want is a wasted day, thanks to a dehydrated body.
