Planning for a trip on the open road can be exciting, but it’s important to plan for the unforeseen when taking a road trip. Direct Auto Insurance can keep you covered on the road with cheap car insurance , but you could still run into trouble with your vehicle.
Before leaving for a trip, it’s important to prepare your vehicle and make sure it’s running properly.

You can also prepare your vehicle yourself by checking the tires, air filters, fluids, and oil before departing.
