Long distance drives with family can be both exciting and a little stress-inducing. We know that these times can be tough, and a getaway with family can be the remedy you need to relax and unwind from a stressful year.
Whether you’ve got little ones you need to account for or you need to accommodate older relatives, there’s a lot that goes into planning a long distance road trip with family.
To avoid angry and unhappy family members, we’ve identified three ways you can better prepare yourself for a long car ride with your loved ones, and even have a really enjoyable time on the road!
1. Choose an appropriate car size.
I know. Our deals are fire, we offer late model, low mileage vehicles that are factory fresh and ready for you when you need them. Sometimes the lowest price doesn’t always translate to the most comfortable road trip. If you have a large family that you’re traveling with, it’s best to upgrade your space. Even our larger rental vehicles are affordable, and we always guarantee unlimited mileage.
Squeezing four people into a small sedan may help your wallet a bit, but it might not make the long car ride as enjoyable as it could be. Shop our larger rental cars to see which are best for your family road trip.
2. Consider adding additional drivers.
We know you love the open road and cruising down long highways. But for a long road trip, you may get tired. It’s always best to have another person added on to your rental agreement. Savannah Car Rentals allows people 21 and up to rent cars from us. Your added driver doesn’t have to drive, but if you’re needing to take a break you can let the other take over and not worry about missing out on driving hours.
Tag-teaming your long distance road trip can be a fun way to ease the stress of a long car ride on both your mind and your body.
3. Plan your route
We live in a time of Google Maps and GPS. Gone are the days of reading maps from truck stops and (gasp!) even printing directions. But it’s still important to plan out your long distance road trip. Why? Because it will save time, energy, and stress down the line. You can also plan on making tourist stops along the way. We’ve got a few recommendations for great spots around Savannah.
Planning your route will save time on the stress of where you’re going and allow you to spend more time together, comfortably, as a family.
