Road Trip Tips For Families

Cape Town, the Cape Peninsula and the Garden Route on your road trip list? With Knysna or Plett as your base on one end, and just about anywhere-really in the Mother City on the other? Or maybe you’re thinking more along the lines of Durban’s North or South Coast? The annual road trip is a way of life for many South Africans. And sure, flights are swanky… but if you needed convincing on what to drive when you’re headed off beyond the horizon… you wouldn’t be here reading this — right? 

What is the best time for family trips? 

With such a broad cross-section of cultures and diversity in our beautiful country, celebrating holidays isn’t the same for everybody, so answering a question like ‘what is the best time for family trips’ really depends on your family. 

Everything is new when you’re a kid! Think about that excitable feeling you felt when you drove your new Subaru off the showroom floor; that’s what kids feel for just about anything unusually adventurous. But remember: On the one hand, you’ve got the stimulation of new sights and experiences, but on the other, you’ve got unpredictable schedules, long packing lists, and cranky kids. 

Road Trip Tips for Family Trips 

Working with unpredictable schedules can be played to your advantage. We’ve put together a whole host of fun games to play in the car while on road trips, which means that while you’re enjoying being in the driver’s seat, our fun tips for family trips will keep those in the other seats from chanting “are we there yet?” 

When it comes to tips for family trips, we can’t speak for the strange reality of you owning any other brand of car, but any long trip in a Subaru is pure joy. It’s safe (very safe!). It’s comfortable. And it will remind you through every winding pass, open road and rest stop that you made the right choice when you chose Confidence in Motion! 

Any realistic travel tips for families should begin and end with safety for you and your precious loved ones. As a Subaru fan, you know that safety is the very benchmark of our brand and has been the starting point with which we develop innovation and the approach to building cars. 

With the world’s first camera-based driver assistance technology called Subaru EyeSight (introduced in 2008), we’ve remained ahead of our time when it comes to Subaru safety features.

Packing’s a breeze in any of our cars, but especially in the XV, Forester and Outback. Just how much of a breeze? Well, in litres, it reads like this: 

  • XV: 385L boot capacity
  • Forester: 505L (to three times that when the seats are folded down)
  • Outback: 512L

So rather than trying to get all your creature comforts into something the size of a tissue box, you get safety and comfort from your front door through all the adventures that memories are made of. 

It’s not a case of “should I?” when it comes to Subaru. It’s just about which one is right for you! 

Plan it. Pack for it. Play along the way. But most importantly, love every moment of it with the people you love most, in the car you love most.
