On the road information:

When travelling by automobile, safety is of the utmost importance. As a result, before embarking on a long journey, we recommend that you evaluate your vehicle for mechanical issues. Please check your lights, gas, coolant, engine oil, and tyre pressure to lessen the possibility of an accident or vehicle problem.


Petrol stations

You can easily locate fuel, diesel, LPG, or electrical charging stations throughout the route. However, if you drive to a heavily crowded area, you may have a harder difficulty finding LPG or electricity charging outlets. LPG is typically not available in some areas due to safety concerns, and many stations have yet to be upgraded with electrical charging.


Roadside assistance

It is a very good idea to save the phone number of your roadside assistance company on your phone. You never know when you're going to need it. When you have a flight to catch, you want to be treated fast and not waste time looking for a phone number.
