#4 – If you have car trouble
Don’t let a flat tire, dead battery or low-speed skid into a snow bank ruin your winter road trip like that guy in the photo! With solid cell coverage you can quickly call AAA for a tow or a jump start.

#5 – Keep the kids (or the adults) entertained
Hold the “Are we there yet?” and “How much longer?” to a minimum, with cell connectivity in your vehicle that allows passengers to play games, watch videos, chat with friends, etc., as you travel down the road toward your destination.

#6 – To find gas, food or other roadside services
There are lots of road tripper apps out there designed to help you find anything you need along the journey – the lowest priced gas station, the nearest location of your favorite fast food place, maybe a unique local eatery or other unusual attraction. Access to reliable cell signal means you can find what you need and other interesting stuff too. Here’s an earlier post on our Top 5 road trip apps for 2016.

#7 – For safety/security
With our busy lives and demanding schedules there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get away for your winter road trip later than you planned. But even if you end up driving on unfamiliar roads in the dark, you’ll know that help is just a quick cell phone call away should you need it.

#8 – If work needs you
I know, right? You’re road tripping, but stuff still happens. Since we all live in the real world you know very well your office may try to contact you, even while you’re on the road. With solid cell reception, it won’t be a problem. And who knows? Maybe it’s YOU who will need to call the office, rather than the other way round.

#9 – To phone ahead, or phone home
If you’re delayed for any reason you’ll want to let those expecting you know your status. Or maybe they’ll phone YOU to find out your updated ETA. Perhaps you just would like to make a dinner reservation or find out what time in the morning lift passes begin selling. With a signal booster in the vehicle, cell connectivity is always available.
