Listen To An Audiobook/Podcast

It can be difficult to read when you are a passenger in a car which is why listening to an audiobook or a podcast is a smart idea (this can also be a good activity if you are the driver). This will help the time to fly by and allow you to learn something new or tick off a book that you have been meaning to read for a long time.

Listen To New Music

A car trip is also a good chance to listen to some new music. You could always put your favourite albums on but this is the perfect opportunity to try something new whether this is a recommendation from a friend or simply an artist that you have head a lot about but never listened to before.

Betting/Online Games

It is hard to get bored when you have a smartphone and betting and/or online games can make any car trip much more entertaining. Sports betting is a good choice because you can closely follow the action during the trip which will pass the time and give you something else to talk about.

Meaningful Conversations

When you are stuck in a car with one person or more for a few hours you will want to have a few topics of conversation in mind. This can be a good opportunity to have deep and meaningful conversations (depending on who you are travelling with) and get to know each other a bit better.

No matter where you are headed, a long car journey can quickly become very tiresome and boring. It is for this reason why you should think ahead and plan a few ways that you can make the trip more enjoyable for all. These are just a few ideas and you could try one or all of the following to make the trip fly by and make the most of this time spent with those you are travelling with.
