The best road trips start with a plan. CAA urges drivers to map out their route and book hotel stays in advance of their departure. Visit one of our stores today or use CAA's TripTik Travel Planner at in order to make all the necessary travel arrangements.

Before you head out on your family road trip ensure you service your vehicle. "It's wise to make sure your car is in good shape before you hit the open road," said Silvana Aceto, Media and PR Specialist, CAA SCO. "Remember to carry a fully charged cell phone in case of an emergency. CAA offers 24-hour roadside assistance no matter where you are travelling in North America."

When packing your car make sure you can see out of all your windows and on long road trips, be sure to take breaks from driving.

Meanwhile, CAA members can take advantage of our Show Your Card & Save program and save at Hertz, Gray Line, a select number of hotels and Canadian/U.S. attractions. For more great deals visit
