On the road information:
When you are traveling large distances with your own car it’s important to check for any technical defects before you leave. This minimizes the chances of car trouble delaying your arrival for check in.
Before you leave you should check oil, coolant and tire pressure. Don’t forget to check the pressure of your spare tire. In addition it is also recommended to check the functioning of your lighting.
LPG is for safety reasons only available in select stations, mostly located besides the main road. Petrol & diesel stations can be found anywhere. To save costs we recommend to fill up your tank in built up areas rather than highway stops.
Accidents and car trouble can always happen. Even if you have taken all precautions. Therefore we recommend to have to phone number of your roadside assistance company stored in your phone. This way you don’t have to spend time looking for the number losing precious time you might need for check-in.
The range of speed limit lies between 5km p/hour and 130 km p/hour. To protect pedestrians strict speed limits exist. For example in the city centre of Brisbane a speed limit of 40 km p/hour applies. Highways allow higher speed limits, following the signage is highly advised.
