Labor Day Weekend Travel & Car Insurance

As you have seen from me on social media, I am not really trying to face the fact that it is already Labor Day. However, if you are traveling this weekend it will be unavoidable. While the recession (and gas prices) had travel cut back in recent years, this year things are looking like they will be on the upswing again. Whether you are flying out of Connecticut or hitting the road to your destination, prepare for things to be pretty congested. It is predicted 34.1 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more this Labor Day Weekend!

As your insurance agents, we cannot help but remind you to make sure you are covered this holiday weekend.
