Road Tripping

Features on where to go road tripping, what to pack, what’s required for your Mozambique trip, safety tips and more.

  • Embarking on a road trip

    If you are embarking on a road trip these Holidays the last thing you want is unhappy passengers or an uncomfortable journey. These issues can be avoided by simply remembering to pack these essential items… Audio Books Check some new-to-you audiobooks out of the library. Kids and adults alike can enjoy tales like The Chronicles of Narnia, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Hobbit, or Harry Potter—and their easy storylines make them perfect for a driver to pay attention to, as well. Car food There are two strategies with car food: You can either bring along crumb-free, non-greasy, non-gooey finger foods—like baby carrots, grapes, and sandwiches—or pack your family’s favourite “treat” foods like chips and baked goods, as a special car reward. Pillows and blankets Pack favourite bed pillows and blankets to soothe everyone on the journey. Whether it’s a child’s security blanket or a pillow for the passenger seat navigator, a soft cushion can make a cold car cosy. Paper products Pack paper towels, toilet paper (you never know with rest areas and petrol stations!), a box of tissues, and some garbage bags. And bring more than you think you’ll need—there’s always the possibility of car sickness in addition to the normal spills and usual cleanup. Spare keys Don’t get locked out of the car: Always pack a duplicate set of car (and house) keys in a separate bag. Sports equipment Bring along a Frisbee, ball, or jump rope so antsy kids (and adults!) can blow off a little steam at rest stops. First aid kit To treat road-trip aches, nicks, and scrapes, pack a plastic bag full of items like anti-bacterial cream, bandages, pain relievers, and motion sickness medicine. Travel games Some friendly competition will go a long way towards warding off boredom. Some ideas: cards, travel bingo, and word games. Breakdown supplies Double-check your boot for a complete roadside emergency kit, including a flashlight, jack, basic tools, jumper cables and a warning triangle to name a few items Wet wipes Bring a container of disposable wipes, or simply put some folded damp paper towels in a resealable plastic bag. You’ll use them for everything from sticky fingers to a quick refreshing mask for road-weary eyes. Car chargers Make sure you bring along a travel charger for your cell phone and other electronic devices. Change of clothes If you’re travelling with young children, remember that accidents happen. Bring along a change of…

  • Did you know by law you must carry a red triangle

    Did you know that by law, you must carry a red triangle in your vehicle according to regulation 214 #Roadtripping If you don’t currently have a red warning triangle, head over to Randburg Midas and get one today! Question: Is it now the law to carry a red triangle in your car? Answer: Regulation 214 of the National Road Traffic Regulations 93 of 1996 provides that motor cars first registered on 1st July 2006 and thereafter must carry at least 1 emergency warning triangle. The regulations specify that the term ‘motor vehicle’ for the purposes of this regulation will exclude motor cars first registered before 1st July 2006. Therefore if the first date of registration of your car is prior to 1st July 2006 then you are exempt by law from having to carry a warning triangle in your vehicle, all other cars are required by law to carry one. It is, however, recommendable for safety purposes that all motorists carry a warning triangle in their vehicles despite the date of first registration.
