Keeping Kids Entertained Number One Stress of Holiday Travel

So, you’ve packed all the presents, the tank is full, everyone (supposedly) has gone to the bathroom and you have plenty of drinks and snacks for at least the first couple of hours. All your boxes are checked and you’re ready for a stress-free holiday trip to Grandma’s house, right? Not so fast, Santa’s helper. According to a recent survey by the Harris Poll conducted on behalf of Chevrolet, the number one item that causes stress in holiday driving is the inability to keep the kids entertained. “Are we there yet?” is the question that starts roughly 30 minutes into the trip and can continue every five minutes thereafter if the little passengers in the second and third rows are not sufficiently occupied with games, puzzles, books or some other thing to keep their minds off the miles and miles of desert between Phoenix and granny’s house. If you plan a long trip, head over to Chapman Chevrolet and look at all the vehicles that offer entertainment for the second and/or third rows. It will make your trip much more pleasant.

Your Vehicle is Like Sitting Down to Dinner

A long road trip can be likened to a family holiday dinner. If everyone is behaved and the meal is good, it can make pleasant memories that last a lifetime. Conversely, the opposite is true. “The vehicle is the new family dinner table, where memories are created and bonds grow strong,” according to Chevy director of marketing Steve Majoros. “As families prepare to hit the road this holiday to spend time with friends and family, they can depend on crossovers like the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse and Equinox to meet their needs, from storage space to USB outlets, available 4G LTE Wi-Fi and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.” The ability of the new Chevy lineup to turn a vehicle into a rolling hotspot allows your kids to watch movies or play games on their tablets, without interfering with anyone’s good times. Of course, that may dampen the participation in the Holiday sing-a-longs, but a quiet trip is an enjoyable trip.

More Technology Equals More Trips

Of all the people surveyed who do not have vehicle Wi-Fi, about 33 percent said they would go on longer trips more often with their family if they had Internet connectivity in their car. People who already have Wi-Fi in their vehicle says that technology allows them to take more frequent and longer trips. The great American road trip is still very popular among many families, according to the survey, as 93 percent of all parents say they like or love spending hours in the vehicle with their family while heading to a fun destination. With the new OnStar unlimited data plan, you can provide hours of entertainment for everyone in your vehicle while you stream your favorite music. Check out all the technology before you take your Holiday road trip by visiting Chapman Chevrolet in Tempe.
