Survey respondents also weighed in with their top planning tips and tricks:

Have a plan. Thinking about where to stop for fuel, how long to drive each day and what time of day to drive through a town are all aspects of a road trip to map out in advance.

Know where to stay. If you’re among the travelers staying in hotels and motels this summer, make sure to research ahead of time or inquire about specific policies such as whether the property will have decreased occupancy.

Do vehicle maintenance. Car trouble, especially with kids or pets in the mix, is rarely a fun experience. When planning a road trip, have your car serviced or inspected before leaving. Alternately, rent a car with better fuel mileage or more space.

Download apps. Whether it’s a kid-friendly game or navigation, it’s a good idea to download any apps you’ll need before hitting the road.

Remember to bring cash. Tolls, cash-only services and tipping are just a few things you might need money for during a road trip.

Pack the essentials. In addition to clothing and toiletries, road trippers advise bringing snacks, an emergency kit, cleaning/sanitary products, valid documents (ID and insurance card) and a spare car key. (IANS)
