Summer is in full swing and with summer comes road trips! This summer we want to offer you some tips and tricks for travel success, as well as a little bit of inspiration for a road trip route.

Tip #1

Make sure your car is up-to-date on maintenance before you head out.

Tip #2

Take breaks during your trip to help with fatigue. According to the AAA Foundation website, the National Highway Safety Administration NHTSA) estimates that 100,000 crashers reported to police are a direct result of fatigue in the driver each year.

Tip #3

When it comes to renting a car make sure to check with your agent on whether or not you’re covered in a rental. In some cases you will be and additional coverage may not be necessary while in other instances you may need supplemental insurance during your travel time.
