Enjoyment of Holidays while Travelling.

The first step to ensure a smooth car trip is to keep your car in good working conditions. As temperatures drop during November and December, being stuck on the side of the road while waiting for an overworked tow-truck driver is not the place to be for the family. Before you leave, have a qualified mechanic check all the car's vitals: brakes, battery, fluid levels, tire pressure, light bulbs and any parts that need regular maintenance.

As with all long-distance winter road trips, it's wise to bring emergency equipment, such as a first-aid kit, flash light, blankets, drinking water and snacks, along with flares and jumper cables. An ice scraper and chains for the tires will also come in handy. Christmas holiday is great for the memories, it's not ideal for winter driving conditions.

Once on the road, drive carefully, patiently and stifle any burgeoning impulses of road rage. Bad road conditions loose our patience,avoid over strains. Try not to view other cars and traffic signals as personal obstacles. Work with your fellow drivers and not against them. Indicate during lane changes and give everyone plenty of room. Also, be forgiving when someone demonstrates reckless driving. Don't use bad words to other drivers and avoid fights during travelling.Avoid rash driving and accidents by getting drunk.

Avoid Accidents.

Don't leave valuables in your car. Pack all items, especially brightly wrapped packages, in the trunk. If afraid of squashed bows, wait until you arrive to place the bows.

Overall, try to make driving fun, and view it as part of the holiday, not as a immemorial experience . If travelling with children, get everyone involved by singing or remembering about favourite past holidays,playing games and be part of their entertainment. The ride will be over before you know it, and you'll actually look forward to the drive back to the home and your next trip with your family.

Wish you all happy travelling.
