On the road information:
Safety is important when traveling by car. So we recommend checking your vehicle for technical defects before going on a long trip. Please check your lights, fuel, cooland, engine oil and tire pressure to reduce the chances of accidents or car trouble as much as possible.
You can easily find petrol, diesel, LPG, or electrical charging stations alongside the road. However when you drive into a built up area LPG, or electrical charging stations might be harder to find. LPG is due to safety reasons not always available in those areas and many stations have not been upgraded with electrical charging yet.
It is advisable to have your roadside assistance company saved on your mobile phone. You never know when you might need it. Especially when you have to catch a plane you want to be helped as soon as possible and not waist time on looking for a phone number.
