We all love driving on some of the loveliest roads a destination has to offer. But often, groups end up arguing over who will be driving the car. Furthermore, self-drive tours come with their own set of responsibilities, and who wants to be burdened while traveling? Hence, it is more convenient to hire a car with a driver. When it comes to weekend outstation trips or short trips of 3 to 4 days, booking an outstation taxi comes in extremely handy, especially if you plan on moving a lot, exploring more places, and if public transport is not available. However, when you hire a taxi for an outstation trip, there are several things you must keep in mind. Here are a few things to remember when you book an outstation trip.
List down everything you wish to see
A little planning goes a long way. If you simply list down all the points you wish to visit, you can plan them all on a map. This gives you the shortest possible route which will help you minimize the cost you pay per kilometer while exploring all the places you love.
The correct type of vehicle-based on the number of people
Road trips are no fun if the journey is bad. Hence you need to ensure that the car is big enough for your group. At the same time, you must ensure that you don’t end up booking a large car for 2 to 3 people. Those with a good amount of luggage should avoid hatchbacks and go for bigger cars. Choosing between a petrol/diesel variant is also incredibly important.
Keep all the essential items in your Bag
Outstation travel requires advance preparation because it’s human nature that we tend to forget things that are necessary when we are in a hurry. We are used to city life and sometimes it gets difficult to find essentials in remote areas while traveling, but any uneasiness can be avoided if we are well prepared. For that, you need to make a list of things that you will be needing and that totally depends upon your travel purpose. There are things that everybody needs to carry with them like drinking water, Snacks and instant food items, your mobile, an extra pair of clothes, cash, any medicine that you may need, etc.
Always keep some pocket money with you
We have already discussed keeping some ready cash with you, but why? Isn’t this Digital India? Or are there any hidden charges with my outstation car booking? This is digital India and there are “No” hidden charges with our outstation cab services. You can book your online outstation cab through our website which is interactive and easy to use and also our cab booking charges are transparent. So we will recommend you to carry some cash and buy things from the locals, these are some of the everlasting experiences that you don’t want to miss out.
Schedule regular rest stops and petrol stops
The mandatories you must abide by while traveling in an outstation car is to stop for fuel and food. If you forget to keep note of where to stop for fuel and refreshments, you might have to take longer detours to fulfill those needs, not to forget that you miss out on the required amount of rest you and your driver need. Stopping at regular intervals while hiring an outstation taxi ensures that your journey is a comfortable one.
Befriend local people
Make some local buddies while taking small breaks for breakfast, lunch, dinner, rest, washroom, etc. Talk with people, engage with them, and ask for directions. You will get amazed to know how cultures influence people, or you may hear stories that are completely new to you with different retrospectives and storylines. They may even tell you some hidden and unexplored places that are not on your google maps.
