Ways to Save Money On a Road Trip

Ways to Save Money On a Road Trip

 

There are plenty of ways to save money on a road trip, and it starts by utilizing what’s already available to you. Check out these simple methods to make the most of your vacation!

Free Attractions

Taking advantage of all the free attractions your destination has to offer is a great way to have fun and save money simultaneously. Take the time to get a guidebook and look through it to see what free activities your area has to offer. Types of free attractions might include music festivals, historic sites, and museums.

Avoid Toll Roads

Avoiding toll roads altogether is one of the best ways to save money while traveling. Unfortunately, knowing all the toll roads that you’ll encounter on a long road trip is nearly impossible. That’s why we have technology!

GPS apps and in-vehicle navigation systems give drivers a choice between multiple routes. Most routes are similar in time traveled and go through the same areas. The only major difference is one option will allow you to avoid toll roads.

Slow Down

Fuel economy tends to gradually decrease at speeds above 50 mph. Traveling the speed limit already reduces fuel economy, but going over the speed limit can result in more fuel stops. If you get caught exceeding the speed limit, you could face hefty fines as well. Slow down and enjoy the savings!

If you’re not sure that your ride can handle a long road trip, contact us at H&H Chevrolet for a new one or repairs.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer Preview

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer marks the return of a midsize crossover that left the market years ago. With a history dating back to 1969, the Chevrolet Blazer makes its way to the automaker’s lineup for the moniker’s 50th anniversary.

Comfort and Convenience

Capable of seating up to five passengers, the Chevrolet Blazer will feature premium comfort features, such as automatic climate control and a heated steering wheel. Sliding rear seats come standard on all models, allowing for easy access throughout the Blazer. Range-topping trim levels will include heated outboard second-row seats.

Performance

The Chevrolet Blazer is available with two powerful engine options. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine provides 193 hp and 188 lb-ft of torque. The available 3.6-liter V6 engine produces 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The all-new Chevrolet Blazer will be available with front- and all-wheel drive. Models equipped with the optional V6 engine offer a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 lbs.

Style

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer features a design that was clearly influenced by the Camaro sports car. A large grille, thin headlights, and tall hood make for an intimidating stare. All models feature HID headlamps and LED Daytime Running Lights. Dual exhaust outlets offer a sporty aesthetic. The top RS and Premier trims include standard 21-inch wheels.
