Before Your Family Leaves for that Spring Break Trip…
Important tips from AAA before you hit the road
Hamilton, NJ (March 27, 2017) — Spring break getaways kick-off the beginning of the travel season. According to a recent AAA survey, more than one-third of Americans (35 percent) are planning to take a vacation of 50 miles or more away from home. And while most families (70 percent) aim to take one or two vacations, at least 28 percent are planning to take three or more — a 13 percent increase from 2016. Road trips (79 percent) remain the preferred type of getaway.
AAA encourages travelers to prepare for these much anticipated family vacations. Although you may be excited to pack the suitcase, throw it in the car and hit the road, AAA has important tips to ensure your plans run as smoothly as possible:
Have your vehicle inspected before setting off on a long trip. Routine preventative maintenance is critical to keeping your vehicle running well and helping avoid breakdowns, which would certainly throw a wrench in your spring break vacation. Always check the big three: batteries, tires and fluids.
All AAA car care locations offer free bumper-to-bumper vehicle inspections and AAA membership is not required. In addition, select locations provide free air and electric car charging stations.
