5 Things You Should Do Before Taking A Road Trip

If you are not planning to travel across the world, then the best kind of trip that you can choose is a road trip. The road had its own special appeal, and it is something that will probably never go away. Sure, people do live fast today, and often simply have to get on and off a plane in order to reach a certain destination in time.

And they are starting on the west coast with big expansion plans for the rest of the country.

However, like any good traveler (and anyone who wants to save money), we’ve been monitoring the prices of tickets for quite some time in hopes to get the best bang for our buck. This ended up being a waste of time, because on many of the popular airline booking sites, the price they give you when you’re about to buy a ticket can be much different than the price you’re shown at the beginning of the process.

Let the following story be a warning to anyone trying to play this game.
