Road Trip Planner

With school holidays just around the corner, road trips are back on the agenda for many people around Australia. Even though we have been extremely lucky so far compared to other countries around the world, we still need to be pro-active in continuing to use our best hygiene practices, especially as we head into winter and flu season.

Road trips and travel always pose an increased risk of catching germs and bugs as we are exposed to closer contact with others and having to use more public amenities. Keeping your family healthy and safe so that you can enjoy your holiday and so that you don’t bring home any nasty bugs is easy with our road trip planner.

Staying well while travelling

Some people might be worried about travelling during the holidays and how they’ll stay safe. Keep these tips in mind for safe, healthy travelling:

  • It can be easy to forget about social distancing when you’re in the middle of a long driving trip. Before you all jump out of the car at a service station or playground, remind everyone to keep the 1.5 metres rule in mind. Avoid large crowds.
  • If you are worried when visiting places where social distancing is difficult, wear a mask.
  • Keep an alcohol-based sanitiser in the car, so you can keep hands clean on the go.
  • Pack Tushon 3Ply Toilet Seat Covers to use at any public toilets along the way.
  • Keep some disposal gloves handy to use when filling up the car at service stations.
  • A disinfectant spray is important to sterilise frequently touched surfaces like public toilet handles and restaurant menus. Tushon Hand and Surface Sanitiser Spray provides a convenient pocket size spray that can be used to kill germs fast on your hands and frequently touched surfaces, and is easy to carry in your bag, pocket or car.
  • If you’re staying in accommodation overnight, wipe down all frequently touched surfaces with antibacterial wipes while wearing gloves.
  • Keep hand washing - Whether you’re heading to a tourist attraction or hanging at the local playground, make sure you keep your hands clean by washing them often. It’s especially important to wash hands before making food, eating or after using the toilet. If you aren’t able to get to a bathroom with soap and water, carry a container of alcohol-based hand sanitiser with you instead.

If you’re still feeling uncomfortable about heading out, especially if you or your child has a medical condition that could put them at risk of serious illness, remember that you don’t need to go far and wide these holidays. There are lots of local activities and sights to explore in every region and simple day trips provide a great sense of well being and enjoyment.

Sit don’t squat!

Do you hover or squat over public toilets when peeing?

Many people have concerns about sitting on public toilets as they are worried about what germs may be left on the seat from other users. In 2013 MOJO Concepts did a survey of 655 Australian women and found that 50% hovered when using public toilets and 40% would only sit on a public toilet if it was covered with toilet paper or a toilet seat cover.
