Tips for your first road trip to Malaysia

Driving across to Malaysia is a convenient way of going on vacation, but before you hop into your car and drive for 300km to Kuala Lumpur, here are some tips to get you prepared:

1. Prepare your car for the long journey

The first thing you should do is to bring your car to the workshop and get it checked. For example, check the tyres for any wear and also the pressure, top up coolants and fluids – to ensure that your car is in good condition for the journey ahead. Also remember to check that the condition of your spare tyre.

If you don’t own a car, you can always rent one; or rent a bigger car like a seven-seater MPV so the family will be more comfortable.

2. Plan your journey carefully

Have the address of your accommodation ready and check the estimated driving time using Google Maps. Make sure you plot out rest stops along the way for toilet breaks, refueling, checking for tyre pressure and also to grab a bite or a drink. Have a GPS in the car and remember to update the maps before you leave.
