Summer Travel Tips

01 August 2022

Are you ready for travel?
We are midway through the summer, so most families have one thing on their mind…squeezing in one more family getaway! Whether you’re planning a trip to a local attraction this summer, or headed all the way across the country, you want your vacation to be relaxing and safe. It’s a getaway from work, not to mention your day-to-day life. If it is a road trip destination, one of the best ways to ensure your trip goes smoothly is to try and be prepared to address a roadside emergency like a flat tire, dead car battery, or auto accident.

Before you go, contact your insurance agent!
Even if you’re only headed across the state, call your insurance agent before you go and do a quick check up on your auto insurance policy to help ensure you are adequately covered. It will only take a few minutes. If your auto insurance policy does not include Roadside Assistance, consider purchasing a AAA membership for as low as $62 a year! AAA offers emergency roadside assistance such as fuel delivery, towing, flat tire, and battery service. It also offers members bonus discounts on car rentals, hotels, travel service, AAA Insurance coverages, identity theft protection, and many other benefits.

Pack it up!
In addition to bringing your favorite walking shoes, clothes, and beach toys, don’t forget to bring medications, printed itineraries, passports, and other IDs. If you are traveling by car, double check to ensure your auto insurance policy information and vehicle’s registration is in your car’s glove box.

Download your insurance carrier’s mobile app.
Many of our partner insurance carriers such as First Chicago Insurance Company, United Security Insurance Company, Progressive, Travelers, Safeco, National General and others offer their customers a mobile app to help ensure that they are able to find everything related to their auto insurance policy in a convenient and easy-to-use platform.

Most mobile apps allow the customer to:

  • Download their policy documents, including ID cards, and access account information
  • Make a payment
  • Report a claim, with capabilities to include video, audio, pictures, and documents
  • Request roadside assistance

Contact your agent today for more information on how to download your carrier’s mobile app.
