Selo-car Raya: 10 Travel Tips for a Seamless Drive 🚗

Alexa, play “Balik Kampung”! As this familiar tune fills the airwaves, that’s when you know it’s that time of the year again. There’s nothing quite like reuniting with your loved ones, putting up Raya decors, and indulging in traditional festive delicacies and Raya cookies.


However, travelling during cuti Raya season can be challenging with the heavy traffic, overcrowded commute, and high travel costs. Welp, that’s where TREVO comes in and THIS is a sign to setel your Raya transport early.


Here are some TREVO tips to make your Raya road trip smoother than a ketupat. 😎


1. Take a break

Avoid dozing off behind the wheels! It is very important to stay alert during your journey. Get enough sleep the night before you begin your drive, and stop at a designated rest area to catch a break. Maintaining a good posture, especially for long-distance driving, is also advisable so that you won’t slouch and be at risk of falling asleep.


2. Obey road rules

Put your full attention on the drive. Get rid of any distractions that can cause accidents to happen. The road isn’t a racing pit, so follow the allowed speed limit, don’t overtake dangerously, and be sure you and the passengers are buckled up.


3. Rent a bigger car

Enjoy a stress-free journey with ample space for both passengers and luggage. With a wide range of big cars from our TREVO hosts, you will easily find the perfect ride to balik kampung in style. Bigger cars also mean you can comfortably carpool with friends to save yourselves from crammed transportation. Plus…who wouldn’t love a little legroom? 


4. Use road trip planning tools

Travel apps can be a game-changer during the Hari Raya season. Travel apps like Waze, Google Maps or PLUS App can provide real-time updates on traffic conditions, suggesting alternative routes to help you avoid gridlock. Besides that, they’re also helpful in finding the closest petrol station, rest area, or even halal eateries for your pit stops.





5. Have sing-alongs

Whether you’re driving alone, or with passengers, singing your heart out to a great playlist will ease the journey. Plus, it can keep you feeling refreshed along the way! Just make sure you and everyone else is safe.


6. Stay protected

Don’t compromise you and your loved one’s safety! Get covered with TREVO’s SCDW best protection plan. To ensure you don’t miss it, you can choose your desired SCDW plans in your TREVO car booking process. Driving back home with extra protection will reward you with peace of mind.


7. You don’t have to be alone

Unexpected events are bound to happen on any travels. That’s why we offer 24/7 Live Chat to ensure you feel safe and supported at all times. Whether you have a question about your booking or need any assistance along the way, our support team is a chat away.
