Why You Need a New Car

So once lockdown is over, you’re likely going to have the travel bug and want to get out and see the country — and probably the world. Think about it: that dream vacation you’ve always dreamed of, jet setting all over. Coffee in Paris; dinner in Rome. It seems so real and once the shelter-in-place order is lifted, it may just be true. The one big catch is going to be that everyone else has the same idea.

As such, everyone is going to flock to their computers and phones to book their plane tickets and hotels, meaning that supply is going to drop almost entirely and immediately. Meanwhile, demand will continue to surge and as such, with basic economics, the price is going to skyrocket. That’s going to be tough to cough up.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, once cities and tourism opens back up, that doesn’t mean the virus is entirely gone. People can still not show symptoms, nor be sick, and carry/spread the virus to other; these are the same people that are going to get on airplanes, going into stores, bumping into you and others, not covering their mouths when they sneeze and cough, all while note wearing a mask. Chances are, some more people are going to get sick.

That’s precisely why you should plan a road trip vacation. However, you don’t want to deal with breakdowns and mishaps while you’re miles away from home. That’s why you need a new Dodge Ram, or Jeep, to get you from Point A to Point B and back again safely and comfortably. A Dodge Ram in Alberta is a given, especially if the quarantine is lifted later in the year when temperatures start to drop. You’ll want a vehicle that can handle all the snow and ice the roads will see. You’ll also want all of that cab space to stretch out and relax as the miles tick away.

Or, if it’s the summer, you can sleep in the truck bed with an air mattress and enjoy the stars. If that isn’t your thing, a Jeep offers plenty of comfort with the added adventurousness only they can offer. They were meant to be taken off road, which means you can get closer to the natural beauty spots you want to see.

No matter which you choose, you’ll have an easy drive as you cruise to your vacation destination, all the while dodging long lines and sky high prices at the airports — not to mention the possibly sick people wandering around.
