Planning ahead can make sure you’re next bus trip runs as smoothly as possible.

Whenever you’re traveling, thinking ahead is incredibly important to ensure that your trip goes as smoothly as possible. After all, no one wants to stress when they’re vacationing to a fun destination. Here’s how you can pack and prepare for your next bus trip.

Stay Entertained

While passing scenery may be lovely to look at, it can’t hurt to bring something to keep yourself occupied on a long road trip. Books, magazines, cameras, personal music listening devices, and electronic games are great for individual entertainment. Keep in mind, however, that commercial buses do not provide electrical outlets on board.

Something to Eat

Even if you’ve planned out stops for your trip, a few snacks can go a long way toward making your journey more comfortable. This is doubly true if you’re traveling with kids. If you do opt to pack your own snacks, stick to easily managed foods–bottled water, granola bar, string cheese, trail mix, animal crackers, raw vegetables or fresh fruit. Try to avoid things that require preparation, will go bad quickly, or create a mess. Make sure to also bring napkins and/or hand wipes.

Something to Sleep

If you don’t have anything you’d like to entertain yourself with, sleep is always an excellent option. However, other people on the bus may still be talking, laughing, or watching a movie. Plan to pack some ear plugs or an eye mask if it’ll help you sleep better. A pillow or blanket is also an excellent idea.

Additional Essentials

There are a number of additional things you might want to bring on your bus trip. You can never know for sure what you might encounter at a less-than-ideal rest area. Medication, feminine products, travel sized toothbrush/toothpaste, hand sanitizer, contact lens solution/lens cases, and tissues are just a few thing you might want to consider adding to your luggage.
