Let's get your summer holiday on the road.

Hyundai’s DIY Tips for Road Trips.

Does your summer holiday plan include driving to those special places you’ve always wanted to visit? This season before you head off, scroll through our DIY Tips for Road Trips below to help make sure you’re Road Trip Ready.

Trip: Coastal.
Tip: Check tyres & spare.

Driving with the right pressure improves handling, safety and fuel economy. You’ll find the tyre pressure recommendation on the plate inside the door frame, as well as in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. It’s also important you check the tread for wear and replace any tyres where the tread is less than 1.5mm deep.


Trip: Beach.
Tip: Wind shield washer.

If you plan on driving your vehicle at or around the beach, it’s a good idea to keep your windscreen clean so you can clearly see both the beautiful view and a safe path ahead. A clean windscreen further helps to improve your safety on long trips or at sunset but especially when contending with external factors like salt & sand. As a safeguard, keep a spare bottle handy of Hyundai ‘windscreen washer liquid’, available from your local Hyundai dealer.


Trip: Boating.
Tip: Towing.

If you plan on towing[H1] your Boat or Jet Ski to your favorite water location this summer, it’s a good idea to check the brake lights and indicators are working, and that it’s hitched correctly to your tow bar. You can always double check your vehicle’s maximum towing and down ball capacity by referring to your owner’s manual for specific weight ratings and load bearing recommendations.


Trip: Anywhere.
Tip: Hyundai Service.

If your Hyundai is due for a scheduled service - or it’s been a while since you had one done - book your service today so that you’ll be Road Trip Ready for when the time comes to head-off.


Classic road trip games for the family.

In addition to all the toys, sports gear and other fun stuff you pack for your holidays, keep these easy DIY road trip games up your sleeve. They’ll keep all your passengers entertained and help make getting there half the fun.

Hyundai spotto
Licence plate game
Hyundai colour bingo

Hyundai Spotto (passengers only).

Score one point for every Hyundai model you spot before anyone else in the car does. Santa Fe, Tucson, Kona, Venue, IONIQ, i30, Veloster, Accent, Sonata. Watch out though; to keep people from jumping the gun, there is one point lost for an incorrect nomination.


Licence plate game.

Someone reads out the first 3 letters on a passing car’s number plate. Each person gets a point for every 3-word phrase they come up with that uses the first letter of each word. Increase the difficulty with a theme (e.g. if the theme is Christmas, “RNR” could be “Red Nosed Reindeer”).


Hyundai colour bingo (passengers only).

The first person to get a full set of Hyundai cars in 5 nominated colours wins. You have to spot a black, blue, green, red and white Hyundai of any model. This game will test your reaction times as only the first person to call it gets the point.


Categories (includes driver).

One person picks a category, and each person in the car then takes it in turns to name something else in that category until someone finally can’t. Categories could include: Vegetables, Shoe Brands, Colours, Airlines, Dog Breeds, Capital Cities, Rivers, Metals, Olympic Sports, Ball Sports and more.



Somebody picks a word and the next person says something that rhymes with it. If they can’t come up with a rhyming word within 5 seconds, they’re out. Keep playing until only one person is left.


I spy.

No road trip is complete without a classic session of I Spy. Keeping with the original rules of the game, it can be an object in the car, a person, or something outside the car.
