New Year’s Travel Resolutions

New Year’s resolutions tend to include everything from lose weight and read more to save money and travel more. Instead of just saying travel more, come up with some concrete goals to accomplish that resolution in the year to come. Before the ball drops at midnight, think of the items you want to add to your travel list.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
