Spring & Summer Spell Vacation! Save $$ by Hitting the Road! Check Your Car First!

In a large part of the US, when the seasons change from winter to spring, most cars are covered with a thin layer of salt and packed with shovels, snow brushes and extra blankets in case of the unexpected snow storm.

Now that we’ve gotten a little taste of spring, it’s time to start thinking about getting your car ready for any upcoming travel. One of the best things you can do is make an appointment for a multi-point inspection to assure yourself that your car is in tiptop shape for spring and summer driving.

If you rent something with a kitchenette, you can cook at least 1-2 meals per day.

Packing for me is a NIGHTMARE!! I want to take a lot of stuff depending on where it is I am going. If I am going somewhere like Kauai (last year) or upstate New York (the last 3 years in a row), I need swimwear (x 3– why 3? I don’t know why 3. It just sounds like a good number and each has less coverage than the one before.)
