Consider Your Ride
India often surprises travellers with its diverse kinds of terrains. On one hand, you face simple plains whereas, on the other hand, you are dumbstruck by extreme landscapes where driving is challenging for a newbie. Thus, make sure you read about the roads and route before embarking your road trip. Also, pick the car you are booking/driving in accordance with the region you are travelling to. SUVs are usually the most ideal cars for long-distance road trips.
Get Your Car Checked
Before any road trip, one must get the car fully checked to get reassured about its good health. Nobody likes to get stuck with a non-working vehicle in the middle of an unknown road.
When to Travel
Every region of India experiences a different climatic condition in different months. In some areas, road trips are officially closed due to unfavoured climate and road conditions. For instance, many parts of Leh remains inaccessible during winters and many wildlife sanctuaries also remain closed during monsoons. Thus, pick your destination as per the month and weather.
Check Posts & Tolls
You will come across many tolls and police check posts during your trip. Always carry change to pay at tolls quickly. Also, do not forget to carry your documents like driving licence, registration, car insurance and pollution for a hassle-free police check.
Ask Whenever Required
