When your eighteen-year-old has graduated from high school, you may be faced with the decision of whether or not to let him or her go on a graduation trip. Whether it is a road trip to a California beach, or a rock climbing excursion in the Sierra Madre Mountains, letting your teenager take a trip with no adult supervision can be a source of immense anxiety. One of the first things you could do to help reduce your anxiety is make sure he or she has sufficient southern California auto insurance.
Should you decide to let your teenager go on the graduation trip, you may want to make sure he or she takes a cell phone and charger so that you can make contact at any time. It may be wise to ask for a check in with you once a day. Make sure your teenager takes his or her driver’s license and any other picture identification. Also make sure you know where he or she will be staying while on the trip, and the planned itinerary.
Things they should consider leaving behind include expensive jewelry, iPods, DVD players, laptops or other valuable possessions. It may be wise to encourage your teenager not to go anywhere alone, but to stay with the group and certainly do not go off alone with someone met for the first time on the trip. Finally, check that he or she carries proof of southern California auto insurance and that any valuable items that will be making the journey are covered under you home policy if stolen or damaged away from the home.
