WHY IS RIGHT NOW A GREAT TIME TO TRAVEL?
This time of year is what we call shoulder season–it’s right after the peak summer travel season, and before holiday season, so it’s less busy, and you can really get some great deals on hotels. That’s why road trips are great this time of year–and why we’ve rounded up your road trip essentials.
ROAD TRIPS ARE GREAT THIS TIME OF YEAR
There are so many opportunities in Atlantic Canada for fall leaf peeping! Now this year is a bit different as many spots still recover from Fiona, but there is always the classic Cabot Trail in Cape Breton–it’s continuously voted as one of the best drives in the world. Down through the Annapolis Valley is great too, it provides great look off points. And then New Brunswick has some incredible waterfalls throughout the province that are worth the drive and hike to do.
ROAD TRIP ESSENTIALS: PREP YOUR CAR WITH THE RIGHT TIRES FOR ALL CONDITIONS
As the weather conditions change, it’s important to choose suitable tires for your vehicle. Hankook’s range of all-season and winter tires are perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons and changes in road conditions and why they’re definitely road trip essentials. Hankook Tire is here to help Canadians remain safe and comfortable throughout their drive. The Kinergy 4S 2 all-season tires are the optimal choice for drivers travelling any distance; The Kinergy 4S 2 offers high reliability in wet, dry and snowy conditions, which is made possible by the directional tread. And the high-performance Kinergy 4S 2 all-season tire promises reliability and safety for road trips of any distance.
MAKE SURE EVERYONE IS FEELING GREAT
If you’re like me you have someone in your family that is prone to motion sickness and that can make road trips tricky. That’s why I always have Gravol Ginger Liquid Gel Capsules on hand–they help curb motion sickness for road trips, on bumpy airplane rides, boats and even great for when you have an upset stomach in general. Each non-drowsy Gravol Ginger Liquid Gel Capsule contains a therapeutic dosage of Certified Organic Ginger for the treatment and prevention of upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting.
KEEP ALLERGIES AT BAY
One thing I always include in my road trips essentials is Reactine® Extra Strength–because I suffer from seasonal and indoor allergies and when you’re travelling you never know what could cause your allergies to kick in. Reactine provides fast effective relief and lasts 24 hours from sneezing, stuffy/runny nose, hives and itchy eyes. We are currently in the middle of Ragweed season, which lasts until mid-October. And this will be key for any local adventures you have.
ROAD TRIP ESSENTIALS: BRING ENTERTAINMENT WITH YOU–WHEREVER YOU GO
So this is key–especially if you’re travelling as a group or a family–road trips or bigger trips–we need to keep kids and everyone entertained! And it’s never been easier to have your own favourite shows with you anywhere you go. Best Buy has the latest & greatest tech for all your Fall Essentials including Home Theatre experiences you can take with you, whether that’s on the go with Chromecast or at home with the latest TV. Purchases can be made in three ways – in-store, online, and by reserving online with quick and easy pick-up in person or from a vehicle within one hour–so you can get this as a last-minute addition for your fall trip!
