Between total freedom, encounters and discovery, the road trip is the preferred mode of travel for adventure lovers. If you hate organized trips and like to succumb to the charm of the unexpected, the summer road trip is for you! How to prepare it well? Here are our tips for the Limo Bus Toronto.
Car or motorhome?
It’s official, road trip aficionados favor the car. It allows you to feel completely free, to move faster from point A to point B and, a significant advantage, to park easily. To leave without organization, the bus goes unnoticed if you sleep in it (especially in the absence of an affordable or free hotel) after an impromptu dinner under the stars. Whether you rent your bus or go with your own vehicle, the overall cost of gasoline will be lower in a bus than in a motorhome.
Organize a road trip in a motorhome
The motorhome is more recommended for travelers who go with family or friends and want to be independent for cooking or sleeping during long trips. If you choose this option, be aware that campsites are often outside cities. To go out at night with friends or family, you will need to unplug everything and hit the road to get closer to the city center. If, on the other hand, you prefer campfire and barbecue evenings, the motorhome road trip is definitely for you.
Note: the motorhome road trip will require you to book all your campsites before departure, reducing the adventurous charm of your trip a little.
Check tire pressure and fluid level
No matter how long your journey is, tire pressure is an important consideration. In fact, with improperly inflated tires, you will see your vehicle’s fuel economy deteriorate little by little. So make sure they are inflated to the correct pressure shown on the side. Before you leave, don’t forget to check the fluid level in your bus as well. More specifically, this includes oil, power steering and transmission fluid, antifreeze, washer fluid and brake fluid.
Check the presence of all mandatory equipment
No one would want to deal with bus crashes or mechanical issues on the go. This is why it is important to have a back-up plan: never leave without an emergency and survival kit. An emergency kit is something you should keep in your vehicle at all times, so no matter what happens, you are ready to deal with it.
The basic equipment that you must keep in your vehicle’s emergency kit are:
- Flashlight (and extra batteries)
- Starter cable
- A spare wheel
- A yellow warning triangle
- Additional fluids for your vehicle (engine oil, brake fluid, etc.)
- A first aid kit
- Your mobile phone charger
- And above all, food
How to choose your circuit?
This summer, whether you are traveling (or even all of these countries at the same time), it is advisable to define the essential places where you would like to stop. Between all these map points, you will have plenty of time to let yourself be guided by the road trip, to make a detour after having spotted a point of interest at the last moment or to stay in a place where you feel good.
