The holiday season is officially here! Thanksgiving is notorious for being the busiest travel holiday of the year, and our team at Rob’s Automotive & Collision Center would like to make sure you and your vehicle are adequately prepared for any holiday travel plans. 

Here’s what you need to know in order to prepare your vehicle before you visit family and loved ones over these next several weeks.  

Expect Thanksgiving Congestion

Each year, AAA releases statistics about how many Americans will be traveling during the holiday season. For 2019, AAA projects that 49.3 million travelers will hit the roads this Thanksgiving, 2.8% more than last year — the most since 2005!

If you are one of the 49.3 million Americans planning on making a Thanksgiving road trip this year, global transportation analytics company, INRIX, warns that travel times in major cities could see drive duration nearly quadruple. If you are planning to head to any big cities this holiday season, you need to ensure your car is prepared for all types of circumstances. 

How to Prep Your Car For Holiday Road Trip

Whether it’s the expensive cost of airline tickets or the close proximity to your family, many people will opt to pack up the vehicle and travel via the roads this holiday season. As the leading collision center in Bristol, PA, and other nearby areas, we’d like to share some important actions that you should consider taking before venturing off this Thanksgiving.
