Often times on the road, it's the little things that count. Here are some important road trip tips for a smooth journey and to help you remember your trip for all the right reasons.
Use the ART Google Map to plan your tripKeep your plan flexible, loosely scheduling the places you plan to sleep and the general route you plan to take, allowing for interesting diversions. Use the ART Google Map and save your directions to access while you are offline or on the road.
Plan for a few rest daysThese unscheduled days will allow you to catch your breath as well as add an occasional, unexpected excursion to your itinerary.
Service your carMechanical trouble on the road is no fun. Make sure your car is in good working condition, and that the emergency kit and repair tools, especially for installation of the spare tire, are on board and in good working condition.
Drive safelyThe views are spectacular and the roads are sometimes steep and narrow. Both are best viewed with your full attention, so drive under control and stop to enjoy the sights.
Take breaksStopping frequently, even if only briefly to pick up a snack or souvenir at an interesting spot, exploring a bit off the main roads, will keep you alert.
Make friendsThe Croatian people are friendly, welcoming, and generally helpful. Talking with them will enrich your knowledge and inform you about interesting spots known only to locals.
