With the holidays well in the past, and the snow showing signs of thaw, it is time to start thinking ahead, planning your spring family road trip. Nothing is more exciting and full of family fun than hitting the open road and exploring, but in order to pull it off without a hitch, here are five essential things you’ll need:
There is no better way to go exploring than in an exotic luxury car, but instead of buying a new luxury car, you may want to lease a luxury car instead. Leasing a new luxury car is cheaper than buying one because you usually need only a small down payment; your monthly payments will be lower; your car stays under warranty so no need to worry about costly repairs; and when you’re finished leasing an exotic car you simply return the car to the dealership.
Cell Phone With Car Charger
This essential item not only allows you to stay in communication with friends and family, but most smart phones are also equipped with cameras and navigation tools allowing you to document your trip, utilize maps and locate service stations, restaurants, and lodging. Long gone are the days when the front seat passenger had to agonize over a giant map!
First Aid Kit
You never know when you a bug might bite you or your child might scrape their knee, so having a first aid kit available is essential. Be sure to also pack your first aid kit with any prescription medicines you may be taking and any pain medications you may use for headaches or other body aches.
Roadside Emergency Kit
While traveling those windy beautiful back roads of Canada, you never know when you may have a problem with your car. Even brand new cars can run over debris in the road causing a flat tire, or simply have engine or transmission troubles. For these worst-case scenarios, it is extremely important to make sure you are safe by having the tools you need to either fix the problem or make sure other drivers are aware you have an issue. Just make sure you’ve had the radiator serviced recently, because overheating is the last thing you want on your road trip.
It is essential to include water and snacks while packing for your spring road trip. You may unfortunately run into traffic jams and therefore be stuck on the road with no place to go for long periods of time, and having water and snacks at the ready can ease your discomfort. Pack snacks that are car friendly and make sure to include plenty of napkins and wet wipes for any unexpected messes.
So you have gone to the dealership and leased a new luxury car in anticipation for your spring road trip through Canada. You have packed the car with essentials like a cell phone with car charger, a first aid kit, roadside emergency kit, and snacks, so you are ready to take off on your adventure. Before you leave make sure you notify friends and family of what your itinerary is and make sure they have your cell phone number in case of an emergency. You and your family are all set to have a great spring road trip and explore the beauty that Canada has to offer.
