With a little bit of planning, your vacation can avoid the classic pitfalls of road tripping and be the best experience possible. Here are five tips to make sure that getting there really is half the fun.
- Plan Your Route
Try to book hotels and estimate how long it takes you to get from point to point in advance so you can set a pace that won’t wear you out. A service like Roadtrippers can help you plan your trip and even calculate fuel costs.
- Save Gas Money
Try these money-saving tips to refuel for less:
- Gas up at exits that feature multiple gas stations. The competition will ensure that you get a cheaper price than exits with only one.
- Try to keep your luggage as light as possible, which will make your vehicle lighter and help with fuel economy.
- If you’re the type of person who gets lost easily, invest in a GPS device before your trip to avoid wasting fuel on lengthy detours in the wrong direction.
- Use cruise control and obey the speed limit. Safe driving can actually help you save fuel.
