Budget Car Rental Offers Tips for an Enjoyable Road Trip

PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With low gas prices in the United States, Budget Car Rental knows you’re ready for your next road trip and has some advice for making that trip extra enjoyable.

  1. Rent a car – Why put mileage on your vehicle when you can drive off in a newer car from Budget? You’ll also have the opportunity to try out a different make and model from what you currently own, like a Ford Mustang convertible, a Dodge Grand Caravan or a Jeep Wrangler, which adds to the excitement.
  2. Bring munchies and refreshments – When the kids or your other passengers get thirsty or crave a light snack – and you’re still miles from a rest stop – it’s a good idea to have some rations handy. Water, juice and soft drinks will quench their thirst, while granola bars, trail mix and other small, pre-packaged items will stave off the hunger until you can stop for a meal.
  3. Stop and smell the roses – Once you’ve determined your final destination, identify a few places along the way where your party can stretch their legs and get some fresh air. Whether it’s a stop every two hours or every 120 miles, everyone can use the break.
  4. Name that tune – With optional SiriusXM satellite radio in virtually all Budget cars, you’ll have a wide range of channels to help make every mile of a family trip worthy of a smile. You can also turn down the volume after a song starts to play and see who can guess the title or artist.  There are a lot of other games the whole family can play while in the car (think “I Spy” or “20 Questions”) and have a few laughs while playing them.
  5. Get lost in the local attractions – If you have some flexibility in your schedule, consider checking out things to do along the way. You may find a local attraction – like the International Banana Museum (Mecca, Calif.) or the Museum of Oddities (Metamora, Ind.) – that grabs your attention and makes your road trip that much more memorable. With a Garmin GPS, available for an extra fee, you can leave your pre-planned route and have a look around; our GPS units will get you back on the road and to your destination.

/EIN News/ -- “There’s a lot to be said for the road trip,” said Scott Deaver, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Avis Budget Group. “It’s a chance to get the family together and have some fun. And with Budget, if you’ve rented one of our premium SUVs equipped with on-board DVD players, you have another entertainment option when you’ve run out of game ideas.”

With more than 1,100 locations across the United States, Budget is conveniently located and has a range of vehicles designed to meet the needs of your family. For more information or to make a reservation, visit
