Like every year, there are many Peruvians who decide to travel for Holy Week, but more and more the group of those who embark on the adventure and decide to take the tour in their own car.
Although the task can be more complicated for the driver, for many it is a more convenient option, because they want to appreciate the landscapes of the road, stop where they want and go more comfortable.
Now, if your travel objective is to reach the place and try not to spend more than necessary, take these points into account to optimize not only money, but also time:
Avoid unnecessary stops
It is necessary to stop from time to time so that the driver stretches the legs, but to do it at every moment and in every station, restaurant or place that he finds, causes in the first place, that the route is lengthened, and in second, that he spends, since you will inevitably want to buy some of the things you will see in each place, and even if you want to resist temptation, you are likely to end up giving in.
Do not fill the trunk with bags
If it is a question of taking advantage of the holidays, it is not necessary to arrive so much luggage. Optimize your bags and carry only what is necessary, as recharging the trunk will only make the car try harder to move forward and consequently spend more fuel.
Review the routes in advance
This way you can identify the best exits, areas with more traffic, stops you can make, etc., and you can optimize the time you will drive.
They are inevitable, not only to stay awake, but also to avoid buying many things along the way. Try to bring things that stay fresh despite the heat, such as nuts or crackers.
Finally, something you should do before you travel is to check your vehicle insurance, to check that it is up to date, that way you can use it in case of any emergency. If you don’t have one yet, you still have time to buy it before the trip.
