Top Travel Tips to Stay Safe on the Roads this Easter

Millions of motorists are expected to hit the roads this Easter. Motoring organisations expect Good Friday to be one of the busiest days on the roads over the four-day Easter Bank Holiday period. So if you’re planning to drive over the Easter weekend then here are our top travel tips to make your journey as safe as possible, and to prepare you before you hit the road for a weekend getaway. 



Car Checks ✓

Maintenance is key when embarking on your travels, especially if it’s long distant. Make sure to carry out all the basic car checks including the tyre pressure, depending on the load . The last thing you want is to breakdown mid-journey, so make sure your car is top condition. Check out our list of vital car maintenance checks you should carry out before the journey.


Traffic ✓

When planning your trip, take some time to plan the journey ahead. Traffic sites can provide you with vital information on any road works or possible delays you may encounter along the journey.  The Highway Agency provides live traffic information and is useful for checking travel disruptions on the go.


Weather Forecast ✓

It is of importance to check the weather forecast for the entire journey as weather conditions can quickly change. If weather conditions get worse during the journey, it would be a good idea to stop at the service station until the weather gets better.


Entertainment ✓

Entertainment is of importance if travelling with children. Family car games or story CDs are a good way to keep the children entertained. It could be good idea to travel in the evening when the children are tired and likely to fall asleep.


Plan ✓

While you may think your navigation skills are of the ability of pigeons, there is always the chance that you may be faced with unforeseen problems,  especially as many motorists will be driving along unfamiliar routes, so make sure you have a Sat-Nav to hand in these situations. The key to getting to your destination in good time is preparation, so to avoid disruption make sure you plan your route in advance.

Regular Breaks ✓

Driving can be tiring, especially if you’re faced with traffic and bad weather conditions. It is advised to take a break every two hours, so make sure you are well rested before you embark on the journey again. Instead of stopping at service stations maybe a scenic pitstop on the way is a better option.
