Choosing a road trip partner can be challenging. The people you choose to travel with can make or break your trip. It’s important to travel with someone that will meld well with your travel style. Here are some qualities you should look for the next time you’re choosing a road trip partner.
Although you probably don’t want to choose someone just like you, you should have similar travel styles. This is probably the most important aspect of choosing a road trip partner.
If you don’t mind crashing in your car in a Wal-Mart parking lot to save cash, you probably don’t want to travel with someone who insists on staying at expensive hotels. If they like fast food but you refuse to eat it, that could be a problem too.
Conflict Resolution Skills
It’s inevitable. Conflicts are going to come up. The first step in resolving conflicts is to talk about your plans and try to predict where there might be a disagreement before you leave. For instance, compromise that the fast food lover gets one fast food meal a day. You also want to choose someone that has the ability to communicate and work through a disagreement. Someone who holds grudges or tends to be too controlling might not make for a perfect road trip partner.
