I've travelled with 4 different cats to the cottage, which is close to a 3 hour trip one way. My family's cat used to tolerate the trip, but would get sick. My previous cat, Nakita, loved the car and enjoyed the trips to the cottage. My current two cats, Steve and Gigi, are both different. Steve jumps in the carrier and sleeps the whole way. Gigi, on the other hand, meows the whole way. Each cat is different.
You can do a test run, and place your cat in the carrier and drive around the block to see how the cat reacts. Another tip, is to not feed the cat within 2 to 3 hours of travel. You don't want a cat with a full stomach to get sick in the car.

Feliway is a spray which contains pheromone-like substances that may help calm cats in stressful situations. For example, many people will spray Feliway in the carrier for trips to the vet or around the house when the cat is stressed.
