  1. Lovely post, Dr. Richa! We also strongly advise travelers to prepare beforehand when going on a road trip. In fact, that’s one of the reasons why we created a road trip planner – ScoutMyTrip which allows you to search for essentials like petrol pumps, toilets, hotels and much more before you take that trip.
