What Stresses Parents Most on Family Road Trips?

The holidays are upon us and many families will be hitting the road to visit grandma or Aunt Sophie or weird Uncle Joe. Chevrolet recently had Harris Poll conduct a new survey, asking parents what was most stressful during family road trips, and the answer wasn’t the ever-present “Are we there yet?”

Almost two out of three parents say traffic is the most stressful element of a family road trip.  Packing and cost came in second and third as the top road trip stressors.  However, parents believe that in-vehicle technology can improve the family road trip by making gridlock easier to deal with.


The All-New Chevy Traverse Can Help

The new Chevy Traverse is jam packed with technology, including WiFi/Internet connectivity, which is rated as a “must-have” for family travel.

“The vehicle is the new family dinner table, where memories are created and bonds grow strong,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. “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.”
