Looking to plan a summer vacation? We highly recommend taking road trips, as they can provide a great way to get out with the family and explore a new town or area of the country. Plenty are easy and fun to setup. However, you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared before hitting the road. We’ve teamed up with some great companies to help you do just that.

For starters, you’ll want to make sure your vehicle is in tip-top shape. Oftentimes vehicle maintenance is pushed to the bottom of the to-do list, but it’s important to make sure your car is good to go before hitting the road.

After you’ve got the inside of your car covered, you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the outside covered as well. You can take care of your tires and trim with the new Turtle Wax Jet Black line of products like Endura-Shine Tire & Trim coatings feature exclusive breakthrough tint technology that restores finishes to their blackest black.  The Jet Black line offers powerful UV protection against future fading, so you can maintain your car’s sharp looks and luster.

Also be sure to have a look at Delphi Connect, which is a great gadget that helps keep you connected while on a summer vacation road trip. Plug this into your car and download the app, and you can get vehicle diagnostics alerts so you know when your car is having issues.
