Ready For Summer Vacation

Going on a road trip this summer?

 

The summer is a perfect time to spend with the family. More than one-third of all American families will take a vacation this year.

According to a new survey, nearly 90% of all Americans will take some kind of summer road trip.

That is a lot of people on the road! You will want to plan, have great car insurance ,and know when and where you are heading. Navigating the back roads of America is one of the best feelings in the world.

Maybe you are on your way to a National Park like The Grand Canyon, or Yellowstone. Maybe you are hoping to hit the beach somewhere and feel the ocean breeze. Wherever you live in the United States, there is an amazing road trip destination to be found.

Fitting your family members into one car for multiple days at a time may not seem like a fairytale to most of you. But, did you know that family vacations can have long-lasting impacts on children’s happiness?

So, why not pack up the car, grab your sunglasses and see where your heart takes you?

If you don’t have these things covered already under your cheap car insurance policy, then you can purchase it from the rental company. However, it’s usually cheaper to add it to your regular plan.

 

Should I use my personal car for our summer road trip?

If you are thinking about taking your own vehicle for this family outing, there are a couple things you should consider.

The first is: How does annual mileage affect the price of car insurance?

The Second is: Do I want to put wear and tear on my own vehicle?

 

How much planning should I do?

Planning is a personal thing. However, navigating where you will go and how long it will take you and your family to get there is pretty important. Have you ever tried scanning for a hotel in the middle of the night in a strange town? Not fun, especially if you have kids.

 

How much should we try and fit into one day?

A road trip is supposed to be a vacation. Sometimes, we try and fit too much into our day and we end up more stressed out on our vacations than intended.
