ESSENTIALS FOR SUMMER VACATION

Must Have’s For Every Road Trip

Summer is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with a fun road trip to the beach, cottage or anywhere your Honda may take you. 

First thing’s first though, what do you need to ensure you are road trip ready? 

Honda comes equipped with upgraded technology and safety features to ensure your drive is comfortable and ready for anything. 

Honda vehicles feature:

  • Honda Safety Sensing Suite  – Honda Sensing is an intelligent suite of technologies designed to act as an extra set of eyes for the driver to ensure nothing gets missed and the passengers arrive at each destination safely. 
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – More of our new 2021 and 2022 Honda models are coming equipped with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to enjoy a fun and cord-free drive to your destination. Listen to tunes, turn on your map and adjust any settings you want to make your trip that much more enjoyable. Don’t have wireless in your vehicle? That’s okay, the cord option still makes a fine option 😉     
  • Moonroof – Enjoy the sun, fresh air and cool breeze in your Honda with the one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature available in specific Honda models including the CR-V Sport trim. 
  • Heating/cooling front seats – Perfect for any weather, the available and standard cooling and heated seats make a perfect addition to any drive, whether it be during the cooler evenings or the warmer days, sit comfortably on every drive.
  • Maintenance minder – This feature lets you know when your vehicle maintenance is due. This system was created to save drivers time and money by systematically letting the driver know a more precise indication of when you need to bring your vehicle into the service department

What else is a must-have for a vacation? 

  • Sunscreen (duh!)
  • Bug spray (must-have for any camping trips to excursions through heavily wooded areas)
  • Cell phone (in case of emergencies or to take some quick videos!)
  • Camera (Capture the scenery along the way)
  • A great playlist (a song for every town you drive through)
  • Phone charger (Can’t forget that!)
  • A good book or two (relax in the sun or next to the beach catching up on your favourite characters)

Some practical items to always ensure you have:

  • Reusable water bottle
  • Sunglasses
  • Umbrella
  • Travel pillow
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Towel
  • Extra clothes

Before leaving on your summer road trip vacation, it’s important to ensure you have a spare tire, roadside assistance locked in your phone, your maintenance appointments up to date, and a fun group to go with!
