If you are someone who travels a lot for business, then you know that you might be required to visit a different climate. Though New England doesn’t receive ample amounts of snow before the new year, we’re known to get a light dusting or two before the holidays. As natives of the area and a go-to company for corporate transportation near Boston, A-Executive Limo has a few suggestions if you find yourself driving in the snow for the first time during your trip.

Ask for a rental car that has 4WD or AWD

If you’ve opted to drive yourself around, strongly consider asking your rental company for a car that has all or four-wheel drive. These features can offer more traction on the road, which in turn can keep you from slipping or crashing.

When in doubt, drive slow

One of the biggest changes you will notice in your rental car is the braking distance. Your car at home might stop on a dime in the nicest weather, but snow can quickly become your vehicle’s biggest enemy and lead to some serious accidents. Test out your breaks, see how they feel, and drive on the cautious side.

Pay attention to other drivers and play it safe

Though you can control how you drive, you cannot monitor the way others do. For protection, be sure to keep your eyes open and always play it safe. Making that yellow light is a lot less important than ensuring you stay clear of potential danger.

Consider a transportation service

If you’re concerned about your ability to adjust to the snow, a simple solution is investing in a corporate limo or car in MA. When you work with a company like A-Executive Limo, you’re partnering with professionals who grew up in New England and are trained to handle weather concerns like snow, ice, sleet, and rain.
