1. Stay alert and give yourself plenty of time.
Everybody wants to get to their destination quickly, but more importantly, what you want most is to enjoy the ride.
Doing it in the safest way possible, however, is key. Make good time by factoring in each stop you want to make along the way so that you will not need to drive for more than eight hours straight. Allow time to make your stops at least every couple hours to stretch those legs and get some much needed fresh air.
Research has shown that drivers who have been behind the wheel for more than eight hours have nearly twice the risk of crashing when compared with drivers who have been on the road far less time. Make sure to have a co-pilot that you can switch off with when it’s time to rest up. This way, you can avoid drowsy driving and have yourself a super fun filled experience with nice little breaks to eat, drink, and be merry!
2. Plan way ahead, way ahead.
You can plan your trip and manage your car reservations with the Enterprise app on iOS or Android to stay prepared before you even take off!
Plan your trip accordingly from the route you want to take to all of your stops so that you can avoid all the dangerous and stress-inducing areas as much as possible. Hit those fun roadside attractions along the way like the worlds biggest thermometer or iconic pizza joint. Want some ideas and inspiration? check out the scenic drives Enterprise has to offer!
3. Be Prepared
When on the road, you never ever know what might or might not happen. It’s always best to be prepared no matter what you do or where you go, especially when it comes to enduring the unpredictability of the open road. So be sure to pack an emergency roadside kit. Some stores even offer ready-made kits for purchase that include everything from first aid supplies, fire extinguishers, tire gauges, and flashlights, to extra batteries and warm blankets.
And no matter what, know that Enterprise is there for you. With a core of family values and goals to be the best transportation service provider, the Enterprise team is there for you.
