Thankfully we have a few holiday road trip tips that will soothe your traveling woes. Read them below. 

Get a Tune-up 
You may be traveling a long distance for the holidays. Some families drive at least 300 miles. When you’re on the road for this long, you want to make sure your vehicle is in the best shape it can be. Bring your vehicle in to us for an auto service in Mankato. We’ll check your fluids, rotate your tires and do a multi-point inspection if you have a dashlight on.

Avoid Peak Travel Times
Christmas eve is usually the day that the road sees the most traffic. To help ensure you spend less time on the road and more time with your family, travel a few days before or on Christmas day. The best day to head back home is New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. 

Be Prepared for Anything 
If you’re traveling on roads that could be snowy or icey, like those in Minnesota, tote a winter survival car kit. It should include a flashlight, blanket, car jack, first aid kit, water, batteries and nonperishable food items.

Entertain Yourself 
The trip will go by a lot smoother and quicker if you bring along entertainment. Do you like audio books? What about road trip games? Create a holiday music playlist of your favorite tunes to get you in the Christmas spirit.
