With the pandemic changing how we travel, many people are looking to new ways of enjoying their summer holidays. People are staying away from destination vacations and are looking into road trips as a holiday travel option. A recent survey by the U.S Travel Association found that 68% of travelers feel safe traveling in their personal vehicles and going to outdoor locations with the current corona travel restrictions.
Traveling on the road might be the greatest vacation you and your family/friends have ever gone for. In this article, I’ll show you just how you can plan for a fun and memorable trip.
Consider Renting a Luxe Car/ Rugged SUV
Who said road trips can’t be luxurious or unique? If you’re traveling with a group of friends, you might think about renting a picturesque convertible. Imagine you and your group of friends driving down the highway with the top down as you listen to music. For the more adventure inclined, hire out an SUV that can maneuver difficult terrain. Newer models of vehicles come with WIFI, navigation, charging ports, among other amenities that will make your trip easier.
Carry Audiobooks and Movies
Road trips can be quite long, and at some point, you might run out conversations. An audiobook or a movie will keep you and your family occupied during those stretches of boredom. If you have kids with you, downloading their favorite shows before the trip will save you a tantrum or two. You can also create a playlist beforehand and save it offline for your trip to save on data.
Pack Plenty of Snacks
What’s a good road trip without snacks? Bringing food on your trip will keep everyone occupied and in good spirits. It will also save you the trouble of making several stops along the way – especially if you’re traveling in rural America, where stops are few and far between.
Take Note of Corona Travel Restrictions
Be sure to research ahead of time on which parks and monuments are closed due to the pandemic. Many places have also put in place new rules and guidelines that will dictate your activities. It would be best to learn them and make a decision on which areas you can visit comfortably.
Make a Travel Itinerary
As with any other vacation, it’s important to have a plan and set activities that you and your group will take part in. This prevents time wastage and you will be able to prioritize the areas you are keen on visiting.
You should also add local restaurants and attractions to your travel plan so you can get a feel for the towns you visit.
