    If you get travel sick in a motor vehicle, it's best to sit at the front and look straight ahead. I don't know about India, but many places sell travel tablets to help ease nausea. There are also acupressure points on your wrists which help reduce nausea, you can buy wristbands called Seabands to help, or Google the points and apply pressure yourself. Fresh air helps, so have a window open if you can, and take deep breaths every so often. Eating mints may be useful, or a ginger biscuit.

    Take benadryl for your motion sickness. Be sure and take the recommended amount, for it can make you feel drowsy.

    It is advisable not to overeat, if one has a vomiting tendency. At the same time, one should not have an empty stomach either.
    There are some effective allopathic and homeopathic medicines to check the tendency, which are very helpful.
    You can keep some sweet candies in your mouth to check the tendency.

    Some of friends shared me one tip: Take a news paper and fold it and keep it filled under your belly. Someone told it is enough if you sit on that paper. They found it very useful. As I don't have that tendency, I didn't practice it.  Please ask someone to try it.

    1smile I find peppermint really helpful.  Here in the Ozarks, there are quite a few roads that make me think of rollercoasters, and sucking a peppermint or chewing peppermint gum makes me feel fine.
    Just make sure it's not "peppermint flavor", but real peppermint.
    2smile I had a pair of pressure point bracelets once that applied a slight pressure to the underside of your wrists, in-between your veins.  I don't know how solid the science here is, but psychological or not, it helped me.
    3smile And finally, sitting in the front and looking straight ahead has been the best help for me.
    Hope these help you enjoy your trips more!

    I know of 2 methods to avoid motion sickness, hope they are useful for you too :

    1. If you have motion sickness, try to use lemon. Keep a lemon cut in to pieces with you and whenever you feel nauseated just lick the lemon for sometime.

    2. You can even use candies while traveling. Keep candies with you and just keep them in your mouth whole way of traveling. I know it become cumbersome some times but if you like candies then it can be pretty useful.

    I've heard that both peppermint and ginger hard candies can be good for nausea, so perhaps one of those or simply some fresh peppermint or ginger?  I know that some people also use those motion sickness bands that have magnets in them which you wear on your wrists, or take Dramamine.  You could take another medicine such as benadryl or an anti-nausea med but dramamine is more specifically for motion sickness.
