 A Holiday Travel Guide

The best journeys are those where you can focus on making cherished memories with your loved ones.

Ah, The Holidays! It’s a time we all cherish, whether we’re reuniting with loved ones, savoring our favorite holiday dishes, cheering on our favorite team during the big game, and of course, those special gifts. Hosting a holiday gathering is no small feat, but let’s not forget—being a guest has its own set of challenges. This is particularly true if your holiday plans include an hours-long road trip through bustling holiday traffic. If you’re gearing up for a long journey to visit family this year, Rockingham Insurance has compiled this holiday travel guide to ensure you and your loved ones arrive happily at your destination.

Auto Insurance Essentials

  • Comprehensive Coverage: Before you hit the road, review your policy. Comprehensive coverage is important for unexpected events like theft or severe weather. Make sure you’re adequately covered.
  • Liability Insurance: The holiday season often means more drivers and, unfortunately, more accidents. Robust liability coverage is essential to protect you financially in case of an accident.
  • Roadside Assistance: No one wants to deal with a flat tire or dead battery, especially during the holidays. Add roadside assistance to your policy for peace of mind.

Traveling with Children?

Safety should always be a priority, so double-check that all child safety seats are correctly installed and meet current safety standards. And to keep the “Are we there yet?” chorus at bay, arm yourself with an arsenal of entertainment.

  • Plan for Stops: Kids and adults alike will appreciate regular breaks. Use this time for stretching, restroom visits, and a quick vehicle check.
  • Entertainment: A selection of games, coloring books, and puzzles can make the journey more enjoyable for younger passengers.
  • Snacks and Hydration: Keep everyone satisfied with a mix of healthy snacks and plenty of water.
  • First Aid Kit: Accidents happen. A basic first aid kit with essentials like band-aids and antiseptic wipes can be invaluable.
  • Comfort Items: A favorite blanket or toy can help kids feel more at ease during the trip.

For additional insights into safe driving, we recommend checking out the resources from our partners at DriveSmart Virginia. They offer a wealth of information on understanding road signs, maintaining proper speed, and other key safety measures. 

As you finalize your travel plans, don’t hesitate to reach out to your trusted Rockingham Insurance Agent. We’re here to help you review your coverage and ensure you’re fully prepared for your holiday travels. After all, the best journeys are those where you can focus on making cherished memories with your loved ones.
