Break Travel Tips
Whether you’re traveling as a family this year, or your college
student is beach bound on their own, we have some tips for you to
help your Spring Break plans go smoothly:
·Research before you go.
No matter where you’re going, travel is made easier when there’s a
plan. When activities and travel routes are mapped out, it helps you
avoid wasting precious vacation time, shelling out additional costs,
getting lost or becoming stressed out.
·If you’re road tripping it.
Take turns behind the wheel and make sure someone sits shotgun. They
can help keep you awake, keep an eye on traffic and help find the
·If you’re staying in a hotel.
Request a room above the first floor so thieves don't have easy
access to your belongings. Keep doors locked and note where the fire
exits are located.
You’re probably going to be spending a large amount of your time at
the beach or in the pool which means you’ll be in your bathing suit
for most of the day. For the rest of your clothes stick to double duty
pieces you can wear more than once and mix and match. You may even be
able to get away with only bringing a carry-on and avoid the dreaded
baggage claim and luggage costs.
·Safeguard your valuables.
Use the safe in your hotel room for your valuables like extra cash,
passports, travel documents, and cell phones.
·Be aware of your liquids.
Did you know sunscreen falls into the “liquid” category according to
Transportation Security Authority regulations? This means you can
only carry 3oz or less in your carry-on, otherwise it needs to go in
your checked luggage. If you aren’t checking luggage or need to buy
sunscreen at your destination, it’s worth the trip to a local
convenience store to buy instead of purchasing at your hotel. Hotel
gift shops are already pricy and for items that are must-haves, like
sunscreen, the price can more than double.
·Pack a Travel Insurance Plan.
Vacation is a time to relax both your body and mind. Planning for the
worst-case scenarios can provide peace of mind during a vacation
because the risks associated with the trip are covered. To learn more

While most people think that distracted driving is only an issue that
teen drivers need to worry about, everyone who gets behind the wheel
of a car is at risk of being distracted. April is National Distracted
Driving Awareness Month, which means it's the perfect time to start
looking at how you can be safer while on the road. Keep these tips in
mind to ensure that you make it to your destinations safely.
·Avoid your cell phone – put your phone on silent and out of reach while
you’re driving. If you don’t have easy access to your phone, you are
less likely to be tempted to make a call or send a text. If you have
to make an emergency call, pull over to a safe spot.
·Pre-set your GPS – before you head out on the road, enter your
destination to your GPS so you won’t have to do it while you’re
already on your way. If you have a passenger in your car, ask them to
help you with your GPS system.
·Do not multi-task – anything that you try to do while you are
driving, including eating and/or changing the radio station, is a
distraction. Take care of anything that you may want to do while
driving before you get behind the wheel so that you can focus all of
your attention on what's happening on the road.
·Keep the kids busy – if you have children in your car; give them an
age appropriate activity to keep them occupied so that they don’t
