If you’re like most of us, you love your car almost as much as you love cruising in it. New sights to see, new places to visit, and new people to meet are all joys most motorists share. If you’re getting ready to roll on your next adventure, take a tip from the experts and do it in style! Here are some tips to get you on the road again:
Shop for travel accessories during the back-to-school sales at many major retailers. Many items such as luggage sets, storage bins, and other travel accessories are included in the school sales because of the many college students who are hitting the road for the first time.
Think outside the box when you’re gearing up. First aid kits are a must for the seasoned traveler, but if you own a new car you may not be thinking about the other kind of emergency: a breakdown. Make sure you have jumper cables and other emergency equipment on hand in case you get stranded when you’re on the road.
Speaking of stranded, if you live or travel in inclement weather be prepared for the worst. Keep cold weather clothing such as coats, gloves, and hats stashed in your vehicle in case you get stuck and have to brave the weather.
Don’t forget to personalize! Check out a major retailer such as Kohls for cool car bling such as floor mats, phone holders, drink holders, and more. Your car is a reflection of you, so why not make it look like yours?
Remember the maintenance. Make sure your spare tire is inflated and ready to go, and have your vehicle checked for service if it’s due. Check your lights and signals before you hit the road so you know everything is working as it should.
Treat yourself! New driving gloves, some driving moccasins, and a matching lightweight jacket will have you looking like a movie star when you’re on the road. Think about what you like to wear when you’re driving, and make your outfit reflect your personality. They’ll see you coming before you open the door!
