Efficient packing tips
Avoid some of the potential stress associated with traveling by packing your vehicle efficiently before setting out on a road trip. By incorporating some car travel tips into your vacation planning, you can set out on a smooth and hassle-free ride!
Before loading any luggage, clean out all garbage and clutter from the interior of your car. This will open up more free space. Make sure emergency items, such as spare tires, flares and first aid kits, are still in the trunk.
Now that the car is ready, start packing suitcases in advance so you can load them the night before you depart. Don't wait until the last minute, as lugging your belongings can take longer than you expect. This also gives you time to remove any excess accessories that take up too much space and to double-check that no essentials were forgotten in the morning.
Place larger items on the bottom, and keep bags that you want easy access to throughout the ride close to you (this would include anything storing snacks, games or books). With these car travel tips on hand, you're ready to hit the road!
