Travel Preparation Tips with Walmart+

Thanks to Walmart+ for partnering with me on this post.

Is it just me or are spring and summer some of your most busy months? Between attending graduations, weddings, showers, and going on vacation, it feels like we are constantly on the go. Thankfully, I have my Walmart+ membership to turn to when our schedule gets increasingly chaotic. The days before traveling are always some of the most anxiety-inducing for me, but these travel preparation tips always help make our travel more seamless.


Are you traveling with kids? Then it’s a no-brainer that snacks are a must-have survival necessity. Some of our favorites are apple sauce and shelf-stable yogurt pouches, individually wrapped crackers, cereal bars, fresh fruit, mixed nuts for the adults, raisins, fruit snacks, and a few lollipops for when things start to get wild. I’m not above a bargaining technique, y’all. 😂

Instead of wasting precious pre-travel time at the store, I love taking advantage of my Walmart+ Free Same Day Delivery benefit on fresh, high quality groceries at the same low prices as in store ($35 order minimum. Restrictions apply.)! Place an order online, and have it delivered to your doorstep! Talk about a time-saver!!

Kids Car Activities

Last summer I created a car travel kit for my kids, and I can’t tell you what a game-changer it is. I make sure to take it out of the car when we’re not traveling so the kids don’t get bored of the activities. But I also love to switch it up with one or two brand-new activities prior to a longer car ride!

Again, it’s Walmart+ to the rescue. I almost always order a couple of Melissa and Doug activity books (Water Wow are a big hit with my youngest while my eldest loves the puffy sticker activity books and scratch art pads!). A new picture book and chapter book are always a hit too with my kids!

Fuel Up

Of course, one of the most important things I do in the days before a trip is fuel up the car! There is nothing worse than spending hours packing up the car and getting ready to hit the road, only to realize that another stop needs to be made. (Not me speaking from experience of course. 😬)

And with Walmart+’s new fuel benefit, it’s easier than ever to fuel up while saving money. W+ members now have access to fuel discounts at over 14,000 fuel stations nationwide! You can save up to 10¢ per gallon at Exxon and Mobil gas stations, and at select Walmart and Murphy gas stations*, in 48 states across the country. (*Fuel discount varies by location & station, subject to change.)

    Domestic leisure travel has rebounded in recent months, and many hotels have seen an increase in bookings from local and regional travelers. Additionally, with the rollout of vaccines and the easing of some travel restrictions, there is hope that business travel will slowly resume in the coming months. Africa Best Safari Programs

    A few days ago, I returned from Malaga with my extended family. We vacationed there for several weeks and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. The city has many tourist attractions, parks and everything else that is interesting for tourists. Therefore, we had to rent a car for 9 seats on to make it more convenient to visit all the locations

    I believe exploring new places is the greatest way to bring happiness into our lives. Traveling to different parts of the world also helps us discover new things. I think it’s really good for our health too. Fowey Cornwall
