5 Ways to Make Your Next Road Trip Better

Whether you haul a camper, drive an RV or SUV, you know it’s all about the journey. At TA, Petro and TA Express we get it and we’re here to help you get from point A to point B. From laundry and showers, to dining and shopping, we offer services and products that will make your personal journey a little bit smoother. Browse the checklist below and then find a location near you to see what else we can offer you.

1. Laundry facilities

Is your laundry stacking up on the road? Grab those socks and sweatshirt off the floor from last week’s hike and freshen up at TA, Petro or TA Express. Our facilities feature state-of-the-art laundry technology, folding tables, hanging racks and more. Once you start your cycle, relax in your RV or come in for a hot meal—either way we’ll send you a text alert when your load is done.

2. Pet areas

If you’re feeling cooped up during a cross country haul, imagine how your favorite copilot feels! Whether you have two legs or four, there’s plenty of room to stretch out at our TA, Petro and TA Express walking trails and pet areas. Our travel stores also carry a variety of pet care products, plus, you can find waste bags and trash receptacles for easy cleanup. See a complete list of TA, Petro and TA Express locations with dedicated pet areas.

3. Verizon Wireless

Cracked screens and software malfunctions happen, even when you’re on the road. The good news is, the nearest Verizon Wireless is closer than you think. Visit Verizon inside of TA, Petro and TA Express to get back online and back on the road quickly. Activate new devices, upgrade services, pay your bill, shop from a wide selection of wireless accessories and more.

4. Food options for everyone

Nothing disrupts an afternoon of adventure like stifled yawns or a rumbling stomach, not to mention a camper full of indecisive eaters. If your traveling partners are all craving something different, don’t sweat it. We have something for everyone, whether you’re looking for fast food options, a home-cooked sit-down meal or protein bars and quick snacks on the go.

5. Showers

The ability to take a quality shower on a long road trip can make or break morale. If you’re sick of dirty campsite bathrooms or cramped showers in the camper, our Voted Best showers are the solution. Every shower is sanitized by our dedicated porters before each use and includes two freshly-laundered, oversized towels, a bath mat and washcloth, liquid and bar soap, a wall-mounted oscillating fan and a hairdryer. Visit the App Store or Google Play to download the TruckSmart app today and reserve your shower so it’s waiting for you when you arrive.

Stop settling for gas stations. Take your next stop at a TA, Petro or TA Express!
