Road Trip Tips

It’s reassuring to have a good emergency auto assistance plan and you’d best never hit the road without one. From flat tires, to overheated engines or even when encountering accident, thorough preparation will cover most contingencies.

Road Trip Check List

  • With the internet it is easy to check your rout a =head of time. You especially want to see if there is any construction
  • Calculate your travel times to better plan your”pit stops” and to avoid rush hour congestion if you are approaching a city.
  • Take care of that vehicle! Get the filters, belts, fluid levels, tire treads checked and have the oil changed.
  • Don’t you hate smeary, squeaking widshield wiper blades? Check yours and replace if necessary.
  • Make sure all of your lights and signals are working so that you do not get an unwanted ticket.
  • If you have a car with wheel locks, make sure you know where the key is stored (often with the jack). Otherwise, a flat tire will become a major problem since you won’t be able to get the wheel off the car.
  • Clean out the car thoroughly before you start a trip – it gets messy quickly enough.
  • Have an emergency kit onboard and be sure to remember everyone’s meds.
  • Entertainment is easy today. Just gather up your favorite CDs and DVDs and pack them somewhere easy to reach.
  • Check your plates, registration and insurance information to make sure they are all valid. Be sure to place your insurance company’s emergency contact number in your car and to have your roadside assistance info handy.
  • Needless to say, pull away with a full tank of gas and have a spare empty can onboard, just in case.
  • If you don’t like fast food, be sure to pack the kind of treats that you normally enjoy.
  • Rest Stops are not “safe zones.” Be careful when you enter and if the lighting is bad or you observe anything suspicious,leave

Enjoy your road trip America.
