Your first road trip is always memorable. It may have been your first as a kid driving a long distance with your family. Or it may have been when you finally were able to drive yourself and you took to the open road. Whichever memory you have of your first road trip, we’re sure it’s filled with nostalgia. We’d like to keep on that nostalgia and help you plan memorable road trips for years to come.
When planned right, road trips are memorable vacations that you’ll keep revisiting. It doesn’t matter if you’re just traveling around Georgia, or if you’re driving all the way to the Pacific Northwest, planning the perfect road trip can be easy! And with the right amount of planning (and flexibility!) you’ll be sure to enjoy your trip in one of our late-stage model cars.
These are some suggestions we have to plan a road trip. While all trips demand at least a tiny bit of flexibility, it’s up to you to determine how flexible or conservative you want to be! If you’ve got somewhere to get to quickly, then rigid planning is probably necessary. But if you’re open to the road ahead without a deadline, then less planning could be the right option. Either way, here’s what to do to plan the perfect road trip.
Choose a destination
This goes without saying, right? After all, you have to eventually get somewhere. We know the journey is the real destination and all that. But have a rough plan for where you’d like to go. Maybe you want to go check out Florida’s West Coast, or maybe you want to drive to Texas! Planning a destination is definitely the first step in embarking on your perfect road trip.
Plan your route
There are a lot of ways to get to one destination. Your route can be the determining factor in your entire road trip experience. If you’ve got the time, plan out a roundabout trip and choose stops along the way. Take the back roads and see the towns you’re driving through! Or, if you’re in a hurry, the interstate is always a fast choice.
Rent your vehicle
Book your rental vehicle with us! We always guarantee unlimited mileage, and all of our cars are late-stage and factory fresh. So no matter where you’re going, you’ll be in a comfortable car. Renting with us is as easy as four steps. Look at our current inventory and choose which car is best for you and your road trip needs.
Bring entertainment + snacks
Are you an avid podcaster? Do you have your road trip playlist made? Bringing entertainment on a long road trip will help pass the time on long stretches. Also, we highly recommend bringing some snacks. Whatever you like, it’s up to you. But snacking and jamming to a playlist is what makes the perfect road trip, in our opinion.
Expect road bumps
Traveling always has a sense of adventure. This is exciting, but can also lead to some unexpected road bumps happening along the way. That’s ok! Planning for flexibility in your trip can help ease and tension caused by unwanted hurdles. And if you have a smooth trip with no hiccups, then it’s better to plan for it than to be caught off guard.
