Thanksgiving Travel Tips For New Jersey Acura Drivers

November 16th, 2015 by

Thanksgiving is almost here and many of us will be traveling to visit loved ones for the holiday. At Acura of Denville, our New Jersey Acura dealer, we understand how much of a hassle holiday travel can be sometimes; that’s why we’ve come up with a few tips to make your trek on the parkway or turnpike a little bit easier!


Plan Ahead

ThanksgivingThis first tip may seem obvious, but planning ahead is a tremendous help. If you’re planning to fly somewhere, you can take advantage of lower rates in early fall. Sign up for sale notifications or follow your favorite airlines on social media to find out about special deals before they’re available to the general public.

If you’re driving to your destination, it’s important to check out traffic patterns to determine your time of departure. Generally, it’s in your best interest to get on the road as early as possible. Plan your route ahead of time and follow the usual best practices for road travel–like avoiding the highways on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the following Sunday.

Keep the Family Entertained

Nothing is worse than being trapped in a car with an unhappy child. Keep your little ones–and backseat passengers of any age–entertained to ensure the journey is enjoyable for everyone. Bring CDs or a compatible mobile device that houses your music library and have an epic sing-along with your family. If your Acura is one of the models equipped with a rear seat entertainment system, like the MDX, be sure to bring your family’s favorite movies to pass the time!

Make Sure Your Vehicle Is Ready To Take On the Journey Ahead

Of course, before you hit the road, you’ll want to make sure your vehicle is in tiptop shape. Nothing will ruin a holiday more than being stranded on the side of the highway.
