Keeping passengers amused on long car journeys

When public transport is not an option for travelling you may be forced to take the car ona long journey. Just the thought of a long car journey can be daunting to a lot of people.But it can be especially boring for the passengers in your car who do not have driving to concentrate on.

Keeping amusement levels up and interest sustained can be difficult, owing to the fact that you are confined to such a small space in a car. It’s lucky that cars like the Grand Cherokee offer such great comfort on a long car journey. There are ways that you can keep your passengers entertained whilst you concentrate on the driving. In this article we give you a few tips of how to keep passengers in the car entertained for the duration of the journey.

These days in-car entertainment is very popular. This could be something as simple as an mp3 player in the car. These are built in to most modern cars so make sure that you have a good playlist of songs before setting off on your long journey. Some cars even have their own DVD players, which is great for keeping people entertained.

You could take a few movies along with you so that people can have a choice of what they wish to watch. You could alternatively keep your children entertained by providing them with a hand held games console. This is sure to keep them occupied for a few minutes at the very least.

If you are more of a traditionalist and are not a big fan of gadgets and gizmos then you could always opt for some other games. Magnetic board games are a great way forward. These prevent all the pieces associated with the board games from being lost. There are many traditional magnetic games available on the market such as bingo, checkers or snakes and ladders.

You might even want to invent your own games whilst on your road trip. You could get the front seat passenger to be in charge of the music and then play ‘Guess the song’. This is always a very fun game.

It really depends on the ages of the passengers that you are travelling with, as to which games you decide to play. Cars like the Grand Voyager allow you to store all the games that you need to make your car journey exciting and entertaining for the passengers.
