Road trips are a timeless, quintessential experience that turns anything from a gas stop to a jam on the radio into an irreplaceable memory. While one of the most endearing elements of a road trip is the lack of a specific agenda or known outings, there are things that you want to plan ahead of time before you hit the open road. TrackR is teaming up with Automatic to bring you everything you need in order to save time and money on your next road trip.

 

Cost: While you’re likely spending less money on this trip than you would on airfare, fuel is still a major consideration. Whether you drive a hybrid or an SUV, Automatic can both track your fuel efficiency and audibly guide you to lay off the gas or brake pedal in order to avoid choppy or high speeds. Additionally, Automatic tracks your trip data and allows you to then download it into a CVS sheet, providing a simple way to expense work-related costs or mileage.

 

 

No matter how well you save and manage your money on a road trip, however, there isn’t much that can help you if you physically leave your wallet or purse behind. Road trips are full of unknowns, but TrackR ensures that you won’t get far without being alerted that your valuables are still at that truck stop or diner.

 

Time: Time truly is money, especially when it comes to a road trip. Imagine being miles into your travels and realizing you forgot your bag/wallet/equipment. TrackR eliminates the panic and time killer for lost items by easily and readily tracking them down and alerting you before you’re too far away. Once on the road, that untimely possibility of a breakdown - whether it’s running out of gas or having a mechanical error - is the least desirable situation. Automatic allows you to either fix a smaller problem yourself or guides you to nearby, well-reviewed and affordable mechanics. Similarly, you may also be alerted when your gas tank hits a certain point in case  you overlook your low fuel while you’re singing to those classic tunes or miss the last station for 50 miles.

 

 

Pack your bags, map your route and load up the car - you’re ready for your next road trip, and together with Automatic, TrackR will make sure your time and money are well spent while you’re out there!
