5 New Year’s Resolutions for the Frequent Traveler

With the new year only a few days away, it’s time to consider what resolutions will best serve you in the year ahead. Resolutions, after all, do have some merit–who wouldn’t benefit from being a little healthier, a little more organized, or finally taking up that new hobby?

When it comes to new year’s resolutions, most of us are thinking along the same lines. One of the top resolutions made year after year is to travel more. And we’re here to help you do just that.

Discover new year’s resolutions for the frequent traveler, bound to help you make the most of your travels in 2017.

Reaching this all-important goal is simple when you plan accordingly. Look for opportunities to take a road trip instead of traveling by air, and hunt down affordable extended stay accommodation options where possible.

With over 130 locations in 21 states, InTown Suites is an excellent, high-value lodging choice to help make sure you reach your travel goals in 2017.

Wondering what life at an extended stay accommodation is like? Worry not–we have answers to your top questions!

Make safety and organization top priorities.

When you’re on the open road, anything can happen. Usually, this is a good thing–where new experiences, adventures, and friendships await. But the other reality road warriors face is that something might go wrong. Whether it’s a flat tire, a dead car battery, cuts, bumps, or bruises, there are a few essentials we should all keep in our cars to ensure health and safety at all times.

Before your next road trip, take a few minutes to assemble your very own car kit. You’ll feel better knowing it’s there, and hopefully you’ll never even have to use it!

And when it comes to organization, a little planning makes all the difference in saving you money. Make sure you’re stocked with these 9 essential items for a budget-friendly road trip, and hunt for tips for traveling on a budget.

Stay healthy.

When you’re on the road for days or even weeks at a time, it can be hard to stay fit and healthy. The calories can add up when you’re eating at restaurants all the time, and it can be hard to find a local gym or place to go for a run without committing to memberships.

Master light packing.

Packing for a trip is always a bit of a daunting task. On the one hand, you’re trying to make sure you’ve covered all of the essentials, and on the other, trying to avoid lugging around more than you really need.

Needless to say, when it comes to packing, space is always of the essence. Next time you’re packing for a trip, packing for your next visit to InTown Suites, or maybe even packing up your place to move, keep some of these handy tips in mind, or learn more about how to pack for an extended stay.

Travel smarter.

Road trips are great for family travel, giving everyone the opportunity to bond, learn, and experience new people and places along the way. There’s just something about a road trip that says “quality time.”

But just because you’re kicking it “old school” by hitting the road, doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate a little bit of modern technology to enhance the experience (in fact, we think you should!).

To help along the way–with everything from getting directions to finding the best places to fill up the gas tank–we’ve rounded up the 10 best travel apps for your next road trip.

From all of us at InTown Suites, we wish you a safe and happy new year full of travel!
