Road trips are a relatively inexpensive way to get away with the family – more affordable than flying everyone out to Disneyworld, or spending 10 days at an all-inclusive resort. Plan ahead, get the whole family involved, and enjoy your time on the road.
Where to stay: Take a moment to plan overnight destinations in advance, and look ahead for options off the road. Packing a tent and camping supplies is a great option when traveling in the summer, or when the weather is relatively good. Camping spots can be reserved in advance. Or ask your independent Car Rental Agency at Car Rental Express for some affordable suggestions of places to stay along your route when you make the reservation for your vehicle rental.
What to eat: Pack as much as possible in advance from home. Coolers are a great option and renting an SUV will allow for ample space. Canned and dried goods are always good to have on hand - as are nuts, granola bars, crackers and dried fruit for when the kids start complaining of hunger. Having a supply of good nutritious snacks will make your road trip that much more fun.
Entertainment: In the old days “I Spy With My Little Eye” would keep families entertained on the road for hours. These days many SUV’s and Mini-Vans come equipped with DVD players. Have a few movies on hand for when the children get antsy. And of course, the old fashioned games are always a back up to complete the family road trip experience.
Frequent Stops: The best part about a road trip is being able to take time to stop and explore new places and things along the way. The fun part is in the journey, not just the destination. Car Rental Express provides maps to help plan your journey.
