Hi,
Apart from ensuring good condition of the car including changing of oils, general check up done etc. For traveling distances such as 700 KM and above.Some of the tips are as below.

1. Start in early morning , you can drive continuously for around 100 to 150 KM max at a stretch and take brake for half an hour.
2. You can continue in the same fashion and can cover up to 700 KM in 12 hours of running at average speed of 60KMPL excluding brake time.
3. Though it canbe driven at 90 to 100 KMPH, driving at 80 KMPH speed for long duration would be helpful.
4. Always keep handy of toll free number, service center address and contact numbers.
