If you are a father or a mother, you already know that for parents nothing is more important than the well-being of their children. That is why it is so important to take the kids comfort and safety into consideration before hitting the road. By planning ahead, you will not only make the experience better for your son or daughter, but also for yourself and the other adults.

First of all, take some time to grab a few things. Pack one small bag with clothes, toothbrush, a few toys and everything else your kid might need during the trip. Bring entertainment (handheld videogame consoles and portable DVD players can be lifesavers, but a smartphone or tablet can do the trick as well), some snacks and his or her blanket and pillow. Also, especially if your child is still a toddler, keep a roll of paper towels, a box of wipes and a garbage bag in the front seat for easy cleanups.

Before you leave is very important to make sure you use a car seat that fits your child’s current size and age. Remember that not all car seats fit in all vehicles, so if you are renting a car with Real Car Rentals test the seat you plan to use before you rent it. Another great tip is to rent a larger car in order to fit your family members and luggage comfortably. Whether it is a 7-8 passenger van, a 12 passenger van, a 15 passenger van or a luxury SUV, Real Car Rentals has the perfect deal for your needs.

With all that taken care of, you can start your road trip. One last tip is to plan many breaks along the way for food, bathroom and stretching. It might take longer to get to your destination but will make things much less stressful.
