Kia offers several road trip-ready vehicle options

Summer may soon be over, but there’s still time for one last road trip! Road trips are once again becoming very popular among drivers in the United States, who want vacation experiences that are lest costly and more about making memories than visiting exotic locations.

Kia has long provided a wide variety of vehicles to choose from that are perfect a getaway. Whether you are looking for a daily driver, or something exciting to drive on the weekends, Kia has something in stock. The Kia Soul, Kia Sportage, Kia Sorento and  Kia Niro in particular are  great options for a road trip vehicle. 

Many people want to take road trips, but cave in and abandon the idea at the last second. A lot of this hesitation stems from the fact that road trips cost money. Depending on the trip, it can be quite costly. However, there are a few tricks to help save you some cash, while still having a great experience.

Travel Close

Just because you want to travel and see the sites doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to pay for gas. In fact, there are several amazing destinations that you can reach from Hamburg on just a single tank of gas. For instance, you can drive to New York City, Rehoboth Beach, or the Poconos all on one tank of gas. You can have some amazing experiences relatively “close” to home, while still getting to travel.

Split the Cost with Road Trip Companions

While travelling on your own can be exhilarating, it is often a good idea to travel with at least one other person. While it is not only safer to travel together, you’ll end up saving some money. Imagine cutting the price of gas and lodging in half. Plus, you can have some great company!

Look for Low-End Lodging

 If you are taking a road trip, likely one of the biggest costs is lodging. A great way to make a road trip affordable is to cut down on the price of your room. Hostels are a great, affordable option, and are often quaint and cozy. If the route permits it, you could even consider camping in a tent.

Taking a road trip can be one of the most rewarding experiences out there. Don’t let unnecessary costs keep you from enjoying the open road.
