Planning a road trip

Spring is on the horizon and we cannot wait to head out on long weekends and roadtrips to Wales and the wonderful areas around Liverpool. If you are of a similar mind and wanting to get that planning in early, here are our tips for prepping for a road trip…

Oil and tyre checks

Make sure you have made all the necessary checks on your car including your oil levels and your tyre treads. These are two things you don’t want to get caught short on while you are on the road, so it is better to check before you head out – trust us. Other checks to make would be your windscreen wiper fluid, aircon and how much fuel you have in the tank.

Cleaning out the car

No one wants to be surrounded by wrappers and bottles, junk and rubbish while they are in the car. Get cleaning and make your car a nice place to spend time. Easier said than done on this one with how busy life gets, but it will be worth it, we promise.


Kids and adults alike need entertaining, so make sure you are prepared for the journey ahead. From I-Spy to the more complicated games, there’s tonnes to do in the car when you get a plan together.

Snacks and drinks

Whether the journey is long or just a hop, skip and a jump down the road, pack enough drinks and snacks for the trip. You just know that someone will be thirsty or hungry, approximately five minutes into the car journey, so think ahead and pack the essentials.
