Spring Break is approaching fast, and if you haven’t made travel arrangements yet, you may feel like you’ve missed your chance for a trip this year. Although it’s probably too late to make hotel or flight reservations to prime locations, your family still has many options for a great trip! Our team at Community Rental Car has put together a quick guide on last-minute travel so you can still pull off a great Spring Break trip!
1. Pick a Great Destination
First, you’ll want to pick a destination that you can easily drive to. Luckily, North Carolina is packed with awesome places to take the family, and all of them are super drivable from our convenient location! Check out our previous blogs on the best waterfalls in North Carolina or the best attractions in the Triad. Your family won’t be disappointed with these great options.
2. Start Making Lists
The next step is to get as organized as possible. Because this trip is a little last-minute, it can feel a little hectic and overwhelming. Start by making packing lists for yourself and each member of your family. Try to travel light and don’t overpack just because you’re driving instead of flying. It’s also a good idea to have a basic idea of what you want to see and do on this trip. You can even make a rough schedule of your days, including dining plans and daily activities. Just don’t forget that half the fun of a road trip is the opportunity to be spontaneous!
3. Book Your Rental Car
Finally, to avoid adding any extra wear and tear to your personal vehicle, consider renting a car. Not only will you save your car, but you’ll also have the opportunity to drive a vehicle better suited for a road trip. You can get a minivan so the kids can stretch out and watch a movie on the road, or a sporty SUV to make the drive through the mountains even more fun! Also, you can be sure your rental car is in top condition, so your chances of car trouble are much lower during your road trip.
