Hitchhiking is what people do when they get to ride from passing automobiles that are strangers to them usually to travel into their destination. They are free usually but sometimes hitchhikers would offer in chipping in for the gas to have better chances. Usual reasons, aside from free transportation, for this is their car had broke down or does not have enough money for fare.

Other people might want to try this though they have no idea on the proper and safe way of doing it specially that you are riding with strangers. But after you have learned how then you may experience something great like what others have made into a hitchhiking book to share them. Here are useful tips that you could follow to experience something great.

Approach cars in nearby gas stations because you may see who they are first before meeting them and make your judgment on their trustworthiness. You could start a conversation and try to learn more about them so you can decide to either ask them or not. It will be your way to know where their destination would be and if it is convenient for both parties.

If a gas station is not nearby then look for a place where vehicles tend to drive slower than other parts of the road. These are usually uphill slopes where most cars cannot go faster compared to downhill slopes which automobiles normally races by. This will also allow them to check how trustworthy you seem.

Pick an area that cars can easily pull aside without causing a jam on traffic so there would not be any possible accidents. Avoid hitchhiking within the city because people go on shorter distances usually and anywhere around. Waiting at edge of cities is better where the highway starts because vehicles that pass there have similar general direction.

Using signs which states your destination is helpful to easily get a lift from someone traveling to the same place specially when an intersection is ahead. But this has also a disadvantage when those who might give you lift will not because their destination is only halfway to yours. Most people might not realize that hitching halfway is fine with hitchhikers.

Always have a smile on your face when hitchhiking because these people which picks you up want also a good company. They like talking with people specially on long trips so they prefer those that have a smile on their faces. Those which looks like a jerk and grumpy are usually passed on because drivers avoid them.

Dress and shower properly because strangers having questionable appearance are less likely to get picked up specially those that smells bad. Wear clean clothes and shave your beard to have better chances. Women must avoid provocative dresses because some guys take advantage of others.

Offer to give a little for gas but some might not accept this or even expect it. This is a way of politely showing your gratitude for their help. If you have no cash to offer then other things like food and souvenirs will suffice.
