First and foremost, you need to make sure that your car should be serviced as well as serviceable before departure. The engine oil and filter should also have been changed recently. Do not forget to check your tires and make sure that they remain within the limit of wear and tear. Keep at least one extra tire in reserve in case of any emergency. Consider to get your wheels aligned before you depart because you never know for how long you have to drive at one stretch, especially when you are at countryside. Your car battery should not be very old and make sure your car’s headlights are in working condition. If in case you do not have such a car with you, you can buy a used car for your journey ahead.
