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.
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!
