Remember a few posts ago when I told you that my family and I traveled to over 30 cities last year? Well, that’s not the most surprising part. The most surprising part is that all of our family’s travel was done by car.

That’s right! We live in the Midwest (right in the center of the country to be exact), and we drove coast to coast, all five of us!

It’s one thing to do a short solo drive, or a brief weekend road trip with only a few people in the car. But when you’re talking about a drive that is over one thousand miles long, with a car packed with two teens, one elementary student, and two parents over the course of several days, that is an entirely different story!

There’s so much more that has to be considered when it comes to family driving and travel. Keeping everyone happy during the drive for hours on end, planning not just one – but plenty of stops for bathroom breaks, rest breaks, and eating. Above all, there’s the ‘making sure that everyone is comfortable and entertained’ task during the trip.

Then, there is the flip side. To save the wear and tear on our family vehicles, my husband and I rented a car for each and every trip we took last year (we attained ‘platinum status’ in the rental company program in no time! LOL). We have a wonderful relationship with our neighborhood car rental agency, and we certainly wanted to keep it that way by returning each car to their lot as close to perfect as possible, inside and out.

To have success on all fronts (during and after each trip) we knew that we needed to: (a) keep odors in each rental car at a minimum, and (b) keep the tablets and cell phones that the teens brought on each trip fully charged and secured. And since we opted to bypass minivans and rent cars instead, we needed to do these in a compact fashion.

I am happy to report that we succeeded – with the help of FreshTech™ .

With the FreshTech™ dual USB car charger + air freshener, we were able to keep my daughter’s cell phone and my son’s tablet charged using the 12 volt socket for the backseat, while a second one kept my cell phone and my husband’s GPS going strong in the front of the car for every trip that we took. And the variety of scented oil disks helped to eliminate odors and keep each rental car smelling just as good as the day we drove each car off of the rental lot!

What I love most is that each FreshTech™ scent refill disk lasts for 30 days – which was perfect for the road trips that were 2-3 weeks at a time!

Even now as we are halfway through the school year of team sports, I use the FreshTech™ single USB car charger + air freshener in our family cars to fight off those bad smells that may enter the car from hours of the kids’ practices, while keeping their devices charged for the drive home. Plus, my husband especially loves the FreshTech™ Mobile Vent Mount and Magnetic Vent Mount + air freshener because they are perfect for securing his GPS and reducing odors in his work truck while he’s on the job. He simply attaches one of them to the vent at the start of his shift, and it removes easily at the end of the day.

My family is a little unique in that we love doing everything by car. Whether it’s driving from Missouri the California, or from Missouri to Florida. Whether it’s seeing Christmas light displays across town, or watching summertime fireworks downtown. Even in the day-to-day tasks and activities, we spend much more time in a car than we do anywhere else – and we prefer it that way! That is why FreshTech™ products have become such a staple in our family’s lifestyle. In all of the driving that we do, no matter where or when it is, everyone in the family can stay comfortable, entertained, and happy while on the go!
