Tips for a Smoother Summer Road Trip

June 29, 2017 2:30 am

Hitting the road this summer? You’re far from alone. Road trips are one of the top travel choices of the summer season. To stay safe on the road, read the following tips from the Service Contract Industry Council and Motor Vehicle Protection Products Association.

Invest in a service contract. Road trips take a toll on your car. With a vehicle service contract, you can make sure your car gets the service it needs without breaking the bank.

Carry the right documents. Make sure you're carrying up-to-date driving documents including proof of car insurance, vehicle registration, and your driver's license.

Pack a safety kit! Even the smallest issues can cause a big inconvenience, so make sure to have some handy tools ready to go. Some emergency safety kit essentials are:

- first aid kit

- jumper cables

- flashlight

- road flares

- duct tape

- fire extinguisher

Download a gas station locator. When traveling long distances, gas stations can be scarce – and the last thing you want is to be stranded in some remote location. Apps such as Waze or GasBuddy can help you find stations along your route, so you always know where you can make a stop.

Make sure your tires are protected. Tire blowouts are more common with higher summer temperatures and increased travel. Help safeguard against tire trouble with tire and wheel road hazard coverage. You'll be able to get your tires repaired or replaced after damage from hazards like potholes or debris.
