Prepare your vehicle for the trip

If you plan on driving your own vehicle, it’s best to have the oil changed, wipers checked, and have enough coolant in the radiator. Have your tires checked for proper treading, tire pressure and make sure you have a good spare. If you don’t have roadside assistance, it’s a good idea to purchase some.
