Exploring local: Future road trip musts


Exploring local – From the Sea to Sky highway in British Columbia to the Viking Trail in Newfoundland and Labrador, your vehicle helps you discover your province. If you’re behind the wheel for the first time in a while and finally ready to set off on that long-awaited road trip, there are a few things to think about to help avoid any road tripping faux pas.

Take the time to get well acquainted with what your auto insurance covers, making sure that your coverage fits your road-tripping needs. Insurance providers such as Belairdirect offer roadside assistance, which can add peace of mind for your adventures.

A road trip is also the perfect time to show your insurer just how great you are behind the wheel. Some providers even reward safe driving with discounts, giving you even more incentive to handle those highways like a pro.

But safety doesn’t end with driving. Make sure your vehicle maintenance is up to date, and leave yourself enough time to have any potential issues fixed before you hit the road. And don’t forget about your furry friends – if your dog is a passenger, keep them safe and secure with a dog seatbelt and learn how to properly transport any other pets.

Additionally, you are looking to save money on hotels during your road trip, consider using your vehicle for camping. Not only will you not have to spend money on lodging, you’ll also get to see beautiful public-owned lands like BLM land and National Forests. If you have a truck, you can even do some off-road trails and really get to amazing places!”
