Common Sense Rules - Tips on Planning Trips During the Summer

Share Article (CRX) reminds all trip planners to be extra cautious this up coming summer holiday season, especially in light of the recent tragic event in Boston.

The catastrophic results of the Boston bombing are well known. It is also common knowledge that the federal governments are doing all that is possible to keep its citizens safe. That said, it is everyone’s responsibility to look after themselves and their families. This is not to say to be afraid of leaving the house, but rather to be aware of the surroundings and choose activities with a good dose of common sense. Just like renting a car, it is important to investigate before committing to the rental.

There are many activities that can be done individually to keep families safe. Stay away from VERY crowded venues such as sports facilities and shopping centers. This does not mean to not enjoy oneself, it simply means be cautious. If a shopping center is very busy, stay away and shop early in the morning when it is less crowded. Instead of going to a very crowded sports venue, go to a local park for recreation and watch the game on TV (in any event it is a better seat at home, and costs way less).

The same holds true when driving. Be aware of the immediate surroundings. When renting from be sure to ask destination directions. Most of the CRX agencies provide complimentary area maps. And if one does get lost, do not be afraid to ask a local for directions. As well when going to a theme park or the like, choose a date and time when there are fewer visitors. Not only will it be more fun (no standing in lines), but also safer.
