Default Long Trip with family, advice required

Hi fellow bhpians and gurus

I will be driving on a long trip towards Tamilnadu for my Brother's wedding. Passengers would be my brother, mother, wife etc.,

My Swift has done around 2000kms, 1st service is over and due for second service in another month. Is there anything I'd need to check before I embark on this trip? Please guide me!

thanks
Satish

Nothing to check in the car if it is that new and serviced other than tyre pressure and fuel. Keep lots of water/food/music for driver and passengers though

BTW, Bangalore to TN is isn't that long trip. So no worry !!

@abhi: This may not be a long one for a travel guru like you but is definitely a long one for those whose average trips are ~500 Kms to & fro.

@jvsatish Please do check A Guide on Essentials of a Long Drive by Technocrat

Do post a travelogue here once you are done with the trip.
