Are you going on a road trip soon? Road trips are fun, but we have a few tips to help make them even better! Check out our road trip tips below!
Check your car. Before leaving, check your car’s oil, brakes, tires, wiper fluid, and anything else that could cause an issue. Make sure your spare tire is fully inflated, and bring along a car emergency kit. Don’t forget your Weego (see next tip)!
Bring a Weego Jump Starter! No one wants a dead car battery ruining their trip. With Weego, you don’t need another vehicle for a jump start. The unit is small and portable, yet powerful enough to get you back on the road in a matter of minutes.
Clean your car. Because sitting for hours on end is a much better experience in a freshly cleaned car! And to keep things clean while on the road, be sure to bring trash bags, wipes, hand sanitizer, and maybe even try some car organizers out.
Take breaks. Sitting in your car for hours can be hard on your body. Be sure to get out at rest stops to stretch and walk around a bit.
Bring good music and good snacks. This one is obvious, but it definitely makes the ride a lot more fun!
Listen to audiobooks. Since audiobooks can be pretty long, it can help make the time seem to go by faster. Maybe even try to find one close to the length of your trip, depending on how far you’re going!
Avoid traffic. Use GPS apps like Waze to help you find the best routes to avoid traffic.
Enjoy the ride! They say it’s the journey, not the destination. If you’re not thrilled about the long drive, just think about the people you’re with and the memories you’re making together along the way!

Recently we donated two 66 Jump Starters to an organization called The Other Side Academy – a two-year re-educational and vocational program for men and women who have struggled with addiction, criminality, joblessness, and homelessness. While here, the students learn vocational and life skills, allowing them to emerge with a healthy life on “the other side”.
Since winter is here it’s a good time to make sure you are prepared for miserable weather conditions to best avoid an inconvenient or bad situation! Fortunately, AAA provides some great guidance and advice for the wet, cold and icy weather to come, so we summarized that information below: Read More
On February 20, 2017 the Globe and Mail published an online article by Andrew Clark in which he recalls passing up a man in need of a jump start because he simply didn’t have time. Mr. Clark shares that it wouldn’t have been a simple jump start at all, as they never are when using booster cables, and he had to pick up his kids within 20 minutes. This article caught our eye because all of Mr. Clark’s concerns would become a non-issue if he had a Weego!
There’s nothing you can do about the price you pay at the pump, forever at the mercy of what the marquee is reading at the moment. It’s frustrating, but knowing why you may pay $4/gallon one year and $2/gallon the next may help resolve some of the mystery. Built into a gallon of fuel is the cost of five key factors: Read More
