Default Tubeless Tires and repairs on a long trip

Does anyone have suggestions on what one should do if one has a flat on a tubeless tire when on a long remote journey. I am not aware if facilities to repair exisit everywhere. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

You get a kit for repair of punctures on a tubeless tyre and it is a very easy DIY. A pictorial guide on how to is posted in the Tyres & Wheels section..

You need to put in air after fixing the puncture as well...

There is a small compressor or Chinese make that can be bought for Rs.400. You can plug it up in lighter's socket. Inflates the tyre from a flat position is about 10 minutes.

Its an equipment that you barely use. I have it for 7-8 months now, however have used it only 2-3 times, it works well for me though.

Cigarette Lighter Attachment - BikeNomads

Works just fine. About 1.75 years, used very rarely, and stripped of its useless plastic casing and going quite strong. But like once in 2 months usage types.

I don't think spending Rs 5000 for the list below is worth it. You can organise this kit on your own for much less. And this list has more frilly things that will never be used in real life, than things needed in real life situations.
All new cars, incidentally, come with a OE first aid kit. In a real emergency that first aid, or any first aid, kit is hopelessly inadequate in any case. Sometimes even hospitals are inadequate.
