The holidays are a time for getting together with family, which is why it’s also one of the busiest travel times of the year. No matter your destination, you should remember these holiday road trip travel tips to make sure your journey is a smooth one.

Plan ahead. Holiday travel is stressful enough without getting lost on your way to Grandma’s new house, so make sure you map out your driving route before you go. Print out a hard copy of the directions just in case your navigation system stops working, and prepare yourself for busy roads filled with other holiday travelers.

Complete routine maintenance before you leave. If you haven’t been keeping up with your car’s routine maintenance, it’s a good idea to do so before you head out on your road trip. Get your oil changed, tires rotated, and tire pressure checked to ensure your car will be running in peak condition.

Remember these safe travel tips. When you’re traveling, it’s always important to remember to practice safe habits. Store valuables in a covered storage area or trunk to prevent potential break-ins. Also, make sure you remind your children not to talk to strangers and accompany them on bathroom breaks. Also, make sure you have emergency contact information for roadside assistance on hand in case you find yourself stranded.
