When you're getting ready for a holiday trip, preparing in advance can pay out in dividends. The effort you put in beforehand can make all the difference in having a smooth and comfortable drive.

Do your research to find the best route to travel to your destination. What’s the fastest route? What's the easiest? Plot out the route using your GPS device or maps. Choose whatever you like to use more.

You should also plan on getting a tune-up before your trip. Be sure to have your oil changed, tires checked, fluids filled, make sure your battery is charged, and tires checked for air. Check the weather report before leaving; weather is often unpredictable.

Choose to travel early in the morning or later at night to avoid heavy traffic. Don't travel the day before the holiday unless you're prepared for long waits and heavy traffic. Bring some snack foods and bottled beverages for kids and adults. Stop or take a break every few hours to stretch, eat or drink, and use the bathroom.
