Road Rules: Your Expert Guide To Summer Family Travel

 

Summer Family Travel usually defines Summertime. But with unpredictable weather patterns, fluctuating gas prices and increasing costs, American families nationwide are concerned about all of the ins and outs of getting away.

 

My national travel expert Amy Goodman has some great trips on how to survive summer travel. Here’s just a few of the unique and useful tips Amy has to ensure a great vacation enjoyable for the whole family:

 

Travel trends: Travelling to destinations during their peak seasons can drive prices up. Visiting during off-peak times can help save money and you’ll have easier access to activities than at busier times of the year. You can find great deals at Groupon.com.

 

Get organized: Planning a fun and successful trip means, setting a budget, researching, and booking early! Shop around to find transportation and accommodations that suit your needs and your budget.

 

Get Your Ride Ready: If you’re hitting the open road in the family vehicle, make sure any maintenance you need to have done on your vehicle is taken care of including checking your vital fluids, tires, and headlights and break lights.

 

First Aid Kit: Make a little room in your luggage for a travel first aid kit. It won’t cost much, and it won’t take up much space but it can certainly come in handy.
