With Holy Week upon us, it’s most likely you’ve already booked your tickets and resorts in advance, and are counting down the days until you hit the road with your friends or family. Expect an influx of vehicles all heading out of town to enjoy their few days escape from the hustle and bustle of a work week, so it pays to keep a cool head and anticipate road conditions.
Phoenix Petroleum, a leading independent oil company in the Philippines, has listed down a few tips for us as we prepare for our long drives:
Plan your itinerary ahead. Research about your destination and familiarize yourself with the roads and possible routes you may take. Take note of local traffic rules and follow proper driving etiquette.
Upgrade your driving experience. What’s better than a smoother and a worry-free drive? Make your trip come alive with Phoenix PULSE Technology, a fuel additive with advanced cleaning and protection properties for enhanced power and acceleration. Gas up at any Phoenix Petroleum station and get more distance with every drop.
Load up your mobile phones and download useful apps that can help you while on the road. From maps, music, and games, the internet also contains a wide array of information and assistance you might need during unforeseen and circumstances.
Safety is a must. Get your vehicle checked and ensure that it is in good condition before you depart. Always pack complete and spare vehicle essentials, such as tools, an extra tire, and warning devices. And, most importantly, don’t forget to buckle up!
Enjoy! The most important thing about going on a long vacation is to be able to free yourself from the daily grind. Leave your troubles behind and relax your mind. Turn the volume up and bring your favorite snacks and comfort food to munch on while you drive.
