- Before any trip, make sure you download the AAA Mobile App! The app is the ultimate road trip companion, featuring a fuel price finder, TripTik planner, a Discounts & Rewards finder, and quick access to our reliable Emergency Roadside Service.
- Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained. If maintenance is not up to date, have your car and tires inspected before you take a long drive.
- Map your route in advance and be prepared for busy roads during the most popular times of the year. If possible, consider leaving earlier or later to avoid heavy traffic.
- Keep anything of value in the trunk or covered storage area.
- If you’re traveling with children, remind them not to talk to strangers. Go with them on bathroom breaks and give them whistles to be used only if the family gets separated.
- Have roadside assistance contact information on hand, in case an incident occurs on the road.
- In case of an emergency, keep a cell phone and charger with you at all times.
With a little prep, you can leave the road-trip stress at home and enjoy your vacation, wherever you’re headed. Below are some helpful resources you can take advantage of to get started on your road-trip!
