If a large portion of your trip requires time in the car you may want to consider renting a vehicle that will be comfortable for everyone. Also, purchasing travel insurance prior to your trip may be something to think about. It can help cover health related costs and travel cancellations fees while on your trip. If planning to visit a foreign country, contact your local embassy to get safety related information. You may need to get certain shots before you enter into that country as well.
