Four Summer Road Trip Tips


4 Summer Road Trip Tips

We love summer road trips - they are the best way to see more for less! No matter how many road trips you have taken…it is important to be prepared. Checkout our most important road trip tips below!

1. Plan Ahead

This one sounds so obvious, but, planning ahead is vital to any really successful summer road trip. You will want to map out your full journey - this allows you to avoid any congested road ways (which will give you more time to sightsee), give your full journey to a family or friend just incase something goes wrong, and the best part…plan the best road trip EVER!

2. Double Check Your Tires

Purchase a cheap tire pressure gauge so you know where you stand ahead of time…don’t get stuck on your summer road trip! Compare the measured psi to the psi found on the sticker inside the driver's door of your vehicle or in the owner's manual.

3. Don't Forget About Fluids

Of course you will fill your gas tank before leaving, but you will also want to check critical fluids like

  • oil

  • transmission fluid

  • coolant

Also…don’t forget about yourself! Be sure to bring tons of water.

4. Pack a Roadside Emergency Kit

Unfortunately, breakdowns happen…we see this a lot in the summer…. So pack a roadside emergency kit just in case. Your kit should consists of items like

  • blanket

  • flashlight

  • flares

  • jumper cables

  • tow rope

  • snacks
