From cross-country road trips to surfing at the local beach, the summer likely means more travel and outdoor expeditions.

Minimize your exposures and maximize your protections with these four tips from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). With these in mind, you’ll be sure to have a safe and memorable summer.
