4 Important Safety Rules to Follow while Travelling in a Bus
While most bus charter companies provide maximum safety to their travellers, it’s better to take care of your own, e.g. buying insurance. Here are a few precautionary tips you should remember while travelling in a bus, whether you will be travelling with your family for a pleasure trip or alone on a business trip.
1. Choose a Safer Route
Usually highways are deserted because there are no residential areas near them. Therefore a risk of natural or manmade accidents always exists on highways. Although Singapore highways are quite safe, you never know what might happen next. A precautionary measure you can take here is to choose the safest route which doesn’t have a very heavy traffic but is busy enough so that you can get timely help in case of an accident.
Professional Singapore bus charter companies always talk about the route with clients. You should discuss with the chauffeur about route preference.
2. Choosing a Good Seat
You can use the following criteria while choosing a seat in the bus:
Window or Aisle: Window seats are preferred by many people because they think that they can sleep better in them since window seats offer more ways to form a makeshift pillow. On the other hand, some people prefer aisle seats because they offer more space to stretch out.
Front, Back or Middle: You might have experienced how bumpy back seats are. On the other hand, the seat very close to the front shows you scenes you may not want to see, e.g. the road in front, the hairpin bends the driver is taking, and so on. Of course, if you are thrilled with these scenes, you can choose the front seat. Otherwise, a middle seat is the safest bet. Middle seats are also the safest according to safety experts because in the event of an accident, middle seat passengers are least likely to get seriously injured.
3. Keep Your Important Belongings Near You
Be prepared for emergency situations like an accident or travel sickness by keeping important belongings like medications and first aid kit near you. While packing for the journey, make sure you carry a small backpack to keep all important belongings. You may not keep bulky bags always with you. So, this small bag will come handy.
4. Better Sleep
Sleeping while travelling in a bus may be a little problematic and uncomfortable. Carry eye mask and earplugs so that you can eliminate all disturbances while sleeping. An eye mask is especially helpful if you have got a window seat. You may even carry an inflatable neck pillow to get more comfort.
Follow these tips and enjoy your travel in the lovely Singapore to the fullest.
