5 things to take on a road trip

Whether you are planning a road trip or looking to explore your holiday destination in the car, there are a few things you might want to pack for a more pleasant experience.

Surfers Rent A Car on the Gold Coast is here to make your stay as easy and as fun as possible. Here are our top recommendations for 5 things to take on a road trip.

Get some direction

If you’re not a local to the Gold Coast and you want to explore we suggest a GPS. Whether you’re here on business or pleasure, a GPS will ensure you make the most of your time here. Whilst a phone can also do the job you might find that it drains your battery and data.

If you don’t have one Surfers Rent A Car can hire one to you. Then all you have to worry about is choosing your fun-filled activity for the day.

Pack some tasty treats

Packing lots of healthy snacks, treats and water will not only keep your energy up it will also save you money. Whilst there’s always fast food places you can visit around the Gold Coast, it can make you tired and bloated. Packing healthy snacks is convenient, good for your waist line and your pocket.

Handy toiletries

Easy to reach toiletries are a godsend, especially if you have children around. Packing wet wipes, toilet roll, hand sanitiser and tissues can make the world of difference. There’s nothing worse than stopping at a rest stop that is out of toilet roll, but nothing better than being prepared for it.

Make it snappy

Keep your camera or smartphone at the ready. On the Gold Coast, there are so many beautiful sights to see. Whether it’s the waves lapping on Surfers Paradise beach, the colourful nature, Kangaroos and Koalas or your kids being goofy, don’t miss out on the perfect photo opportunities.

The perfect playlist

No holiday is complete without the perfect play-list. Don’t spend your time thumbing through the radio stations, get a play-list ready with a few favourites from everyone.

The car journey is part of the adventure. Surfers Rent A Car are here to make your car rental experience on the Gold Coast as seamless as possible.
