5 Tips to Road Trip Success

Here at Commercial Tire, we’re big believers in hitting the open road for an adventurous road trip. If you’re planning a trip this summer, here are a few tips to make it successful and memorable in the best possible way.

  1. Make some snacks. College students and families alike will agree that the key ingredient to a successful road trip is your choice of snacks. Chowhound’s got a few recipes for you to make at home that will save you big bucks at the store.
  2. Take some games. Make sure to pack a soccer ball or frisbee with you, especially if you are traveling with kids. Making the most out of a sticky situation, or just taking a break from a long stretch of driving, can turn unpleasant events into fond memories.
  3. Get a pass and hit the parks. Visiting multiple national parks in a summer gets easier with an Interagency Access Pass. One $80 pass covers the entrance fee for you and your vehicle (including your family members) into all national parks and other public lands managed by federal agencies including the Fish and Wildlife Service, the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and Bureau of Reclamation. If state parks are more your thing, Idaho, Utah, Oregon, and Washington all sell passes, too.
  4. Do a pre-trip inspection. Give your vehicle a once-over before embarking on any road trip. We tell you how on the blog, but feel free to make an appointment for us to take a closer look at your vehicle for you.
  5. Be prepared. Brush up on your tire changing skills and make sure you have a jack and a spare tire in the back of the car in the event of a flat. Be sure to pack an emergency kit and blankets, a cell charger, and some water in case you break down.

Let us know where you’re headed in the comments, or on our Facebook page. Have a great trip!
