summer road trip the auto connection

With COVID safety measures being lowered and many businesses getting back to normal, now’s the perfect time to plan your summer road trip. Here are 5 used car hacks to make your summer unforgettable.

  1. Don’t Have a Lid? Use Cling Wrap.

As if cling wrap wasn’t already handy enough, now it has a purpose outside the kitchen. Take a lidless glass with you on your road trip by wrapping the top of the cup and poking a straw through the wrap. Now you don’t have to worry about spillage!

  1. Charge on Up

Don’t let you and your buddies’ phones die on the road. Get a split phone charger to make sure everyone has enough juice to snap pics and share the adventure online. It’s also great to keep everyone’s phone powered up in case of an emergency.

  1. Spill-Proof Snack Containers

When you’re done with those plastic coffee creamer containers, don’t throw them out. Instead, wash them and fill them with your favorite bite-sized snack. The flip lid makes for easy pouring into your hand.

  1. Hotel, Shmotel

If you’re planning on saving money on hotel expenses by sleeping in your car, bring along an inflatable pool raft. It works great as a makeshift mattress on the back seat.

  1. Easily Find the Cheapest Gas

With the GasBuddy app, you’ll be able to find the best gas prices on your trip.
