The holidays are right around the corner, which means there’s a big possibility that you and your loved ones will be traveling. Whether you’re heading two hours or twelve hours away, there are several things you can do to ensure your trip is safe, fun and comfortable for everyone involved! Check out some of our holiday travel tips below.
Check for Maintenance
It’s important to make sure that your vehicle is ready for a road trip before you head out. Check the oil, tires, headlights, windshield wipers and battery in advance. If you need an oil change or a tire replaced, take care of it before you hit the road. Safety is of utmost importance when it comes to holiday traveling, and you don’t want to end up stuck on the side of the road, or even worse — in an accident. Bring a phone charger for the car, and make sure that your insurance and roadside assistance information is easily accessible just in case.
Keep the Kids Happy
Pack a few holiday movies for the road to keep the kids entertained. You can also make a road trip playlist that everyone will enjoy singing along to! If your little ones like to color, it wouldn’t hurt to bring along some crayons and coloring books as well. If you have a tablet, download some fun games and a few episodes of your kiddo’s favorite shows to keep him smiling instead of cranky.
Plan Your Route
It’s best to plan your trip using a map before you leave. Figure out the best path possible for you, including breaks and any special stops you’d like to make along the way. If you have children, stopping to play or to go inside a restaurant to eat can work wonders. Keep in mind that the roads will be busy, and leaving early in the morning or late at night can make your adventure much easier.
