Whether you’re heading over the river or through the woods to your parents’ house this year, it’s important that you stay safe on your way there. Keep these holiday road trip travel tips in mind as you head out to your holiday destination.
Plan ahead. Before you head out on the open road, make sure you map your route out in advance. Make sure you have any roadside assistance contact information in case you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, and make sure that you prepare yourself for any holiday traffic, since the holidays are a popular time of the year for road travel.
Get your car checked. You don’t want to get stranded on the side of the road with an overheated engine or other issue. Bring your car to the Avery Greene Honda service center for a routine check-up before your trip to ensure your car is in working order.
Remember common-sense rules. To keep yourself — and your family — safe throughout the trip, try to remember some important unwritten rules. Remind your children not to talk to strangers when you’re at rest stops and accompany them into the bathroom. Also, tuck any valuables away in your trunk or in a covered storage area to reduce the likelihood of a break-in.
Wherever you’re going, have a safe road trip and happy holidays!
