If you have already built your itinerary, Prestone®, a proven and trusted quality brand of Auto Care fluids since 1927, shares a couple of tips that can guide you on your trip and enable you to have a safe break this long weekend. And no matter where the road leads you, you are guided well by these tips.
Plan your trips and know your stops
A well-planned route sets the foundation for a confident road trip. Utilize navigation apps, study maps, and be aware of rest areas and points of interest along your route. Knowing where you’ll stop for breaks not only adds structure to your journey but ensures you’ll have the necessary resources, from fuel stations to amenities.
Prep your vehicle using Prestone Car-Specific Coolant 1L
Confidence on the road begins with the health of your vehicle. Regular maintenance checks, including tire pressure, oil levels, and brake conditions, are imperative. For optimal protection of your engine during long drives, consider using Prestone Car-Specific Coolant 1L. Tailored to specific car brands and armed with Cor-Guard™ anti-corrosion technology, it works immediately to stop the spread of rust, grime and corrosion and provides instant protection against overheating, providing the reliability you need for an extended road trip. Only Prestone provides this level of protection and technology.
The Car-Specific Coolant 1L is available in RED, BLUE, and GREEN color variants.

Right color, right formula, compatible with your car.
Pack smart and prioritize bringing essentials
Confidence is built on preparedness. Ensure your vehicle is equipped with essentials like a spare tire, jack, jumper cables, Prestone Car-Specific Coolant 1L for top-off, and a first aid kit. Comfort items, such as snacks, water, and entertainment, make your journey more enjoyable and stress-free. A well-packed vehicle is a confident vehicle.
Make a weather check and prepare for the worst-case scenario.
Weather can be unpredictable, especially on long journeys. Stay ahead of the curve by checking weather forecasts for your route. If rain is in the forecast, ensure your windshield wipers are in good condition, and consider applying a water repellent solution to enhance visibility.
Take stopovers and breaks in between
Long stretches of driving can lead to fatigue. Combat this by taking regular breaks to stretch, hydrate, and rest. A refreshed mind leads to better focus and, consequently, increased confidence behind the wheel. This is also a chance to explore new places along your destination and check local delicacies that may surprise you.
The Car-Specific Coolant 1L is available at a suggested retail price of PhP300 per bottle and can be purchased at Prestone’s partner stores and auto-supply shops nationwide, including the Clorox Official Stores on Lazada and Shopee. Prestone strongly urges customers to ensure the authenticity of their purchases by buying from these authorized outlets, thus preventing potential accidents or vehicle damage.
