5 WAYS TO PLAY IT SAFE WHEN YOU GO AWAY
At Date Night Ideas we’re all about the extended getaway – sometimes you just have to pack up your loved ones and head towards a beautiful destination to reconnect and enjoy a change of scenery. However, when you choose to set out on an adventure, there are a few things you should have in place before you hit the road.
Here are our top five tips to play it safe when you go away:
1. HAVE YOUR VEHICLE REVIEWED
If you’re going on a self-drive road trip, having your vehicle reviewed is an absolute prerequisite. Any reputable auto dealer should be able to assist you in doing a proper pre-travel check, which normally includes tyre tread and -rotation, oil, water, wipers, suspension and shocks, as well as your vehicle’s cooling system.
2. REFILL ALL CHRONIC MEDICATIONS
When you leave the comforts of home to explore the road less travelled, it’s imperative that you refill all chronic medications to ensure that you have a sufficient supply, especially if you’re heading into a rural area where there may not be any pharmacies close by. The same applies for urban areas however – rather be safe than sorry.
3. LEAVE YOUR ITINERARY WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY
No matter where you’re headed, prepare a detailed itinerary featuring your planned route, accommodation stops and leisure activities to leave with selected family and friends. This way, if something unpleasant should befall you on the road, your support network will know where to look to find you.
4. REVIEW YOUR INSURANCE POLICIES
If you’re setting out on an extended vacation, it’s always a good idea to review your personal- and business insurance policies before you head out into the great unknown. This way you’ll be completely aware of what you’re covered for in the event of an emergency during your trip.
Insurance companies like King Price offer an extensive range of personal and business insurance policies to suit a variety of requirements. Business owners, for instance, can choose to safeguard their livelihood with business insurance that covers everything from public and employer's liability and damage to goods in transit, to the physical loss or damage to equipment and business interruption due to machinery breakdown.
Knowing your business is in safe hands while you are away will allow you the breathing room to truly enjoy your break. This is why companies like King Price go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that their clients can head off into the great unknown without a care in the world.
5. ALERT YOUR SECURITY COMPANY
If you have home and office security installed, it’s always a good idea to alert your security company that you are hitting the road. This way they will know to keep an extra eye on your premises.
