As a chick who likes to travel, I’ve had my fair share of road-trips. While I love air travel and flying the friendly skies, there have been times where I’ve gotten in my car and road-tripped to locales that are close to home. My road-trip limit is anything under 6 hours, and I actually don’t mind driving during trips because I’ve learned my way on the open road.

Roadtrippin': Six Safety Tips for Women Who Travel On the RoadBut there are safety tips that we as women have to take into consideration when we take a road trip, especially if we are traveling alone. Here are Five Safety Tips for Women Who Travel On the Road:

Get Car Checked

Before any car trip, make sure to get your car checked out by a licensed mechanic. During their inspection, they should check tire pressure, oil, top off fluids, check wipers, etc. Do not get on the road without getting your car properly inspected. This will help you avoid breakdowns on the road.

AAA is Your Friend

Do not travel without emergency roadside assistance. Services like AAA can help out if you need help with a flat tire, run out of gas, need a jump, etc. They can also tow you if your car is in need of servicing. It can give you a peace of mind. Your mobile phone provider or auto insurance company may also offer emergency roadside assistance for an additional fee.

Charge It

Before you leave, make sure your smartphone is properly charged. Also, make sure you have a car charger that you can use while on the road.

Travel During the Day

Traveling during the day is best. Safety experts report more crimes against women are committed at night, so if you can, make sure to road trip during the day.

Dependable Names

Only stop at dependable brands for gas, food, lodging, etc. Make sure that you have checked their ratings online regarding service and safety before your trip, and try to plot your stops accordingly.

Road-trips can be fun, but it is most important that you follow these tips so you can get to your destination safe and sound. Happy Roadtrippin’!
