3 Tips for Safer Holiday Travel

November 10th, 2016 by

Are you planning on traveling this holiday season? You’re not alone. In fact, it’s the busiest travel time of the year, so it’s important to stay alert and safe this holiday season. To ensure that we don’t add one more thing to your list, we have done the research for you and have complied a list of travel tips to consider.

  • Keep up with routine maintenance: If your vehicle is overdue for an oil change or it has been a while since you have rotated and changed your tires, it’s important to fix your vehicle before you venture out for the holiday season.
  • Don’t travel too long each day: If you have a long way to travel this holiday season, it’s important that you plan a pit stop every few hours so you can stretch your legs and take a mental break. Use this time to also fuel up with gas and snacks.
  • Have the right equipment onboard: It’s important that you have the right gadgets, tools and equipment onboard to stay safe. This may include a navigation system, E-ZPass or easily accessible cash and change, as well as a spare tire.
