India is a potpourri of varied terrains. There are smooth highways and then there are steep u-turns on mountainous roads, not to mention the potholes!

HolidayIQ tip: A strong and reliable vehicle is always your best bet.

Our travellers Kiran and Sheena loved their trip with the New Nissan Terrano. With its sturdy build, tilting power steering wheel, multi-information display and parking sensors, it fits in as the perfect travel ride.

Car navigation systems are saviours these days! But just to be on the safe side, checking with locals en route is a great way to make sure you are always on the right track.

The whole point of a road trip is to stop, venture into unknown towns and visit tourist attractions and villages en route. It’s not just a long drive but an exploration. And that is exactly what our travellers Kiran and Sheena did!

It's always better to be prepared for the unexpected. If your car tyre gets punctured, imagine the conundrum.

HolidayIQ tip: Check your stepney before leaving and make sure all your tools are in place, in case you need to change your tyre in the middle of nowhere!

Our travellers drove up the stunning hill of Mullayanagiri which is located in the Baba Budangiri range of the Western Ghats. A challenging drive, but totally worth it.
