Covid Precautions

What to Pack

Our next road trip suggestion is to pack personal protective equipment! Of course, you need to pack normal road trip items such as water/beverages, snacks, sunglasses, and blankets/pillows. But, during this pandemic, make sure you also bring protective items such as hand sanitizer, masks, disposable gloves, and disinfecting wipes.

Road Trip Suggestions - Stopping for Food

Where to Eat

Although stopping at a sit-down restaurant may be nice, you may want to consider other alternatives for your trip. An idea when it comes to food is to consider bringing a cooler with your own food such as deli meat, bread, yogurt, and fruit. But, if you prefer to eat out, you could target restaurants that have a drive-through or take-out option. Then, plan to eat in your car or find a nice grassy spot to have a picnic!

Road Trip Suggestions - Gas Station

Rest Stops and Gas Stations

This may be an area that you wouldn’t normally think about, but planning rest stops or trips to the gas station are important right now. Thankfully, most rest stops are open and taking extra safety precautions. But, make sure you bring your hand sanitizer and grab a napkin or towel so you don’t have to touch the door.

The same goes for gas stations. Using a napkin or disposable glove when touching the gas pump or convenience store door is recommended. Another suggestion during this pandemic is to use your credit card instead of cash when possible.

Road Trip Suggestions - Hotel Cleaning

Hotel Accommodations/Camp Grounds

Not all hotels and campgrounds are open, so make sure you do your research beforehand. Hotels are also being more vigilant with their cleaning practices. If only staying 1 or 2 nights, considering passing on cleaning services to limit the number of people entering your room.

When it comes to camping, you don’t have to worry as much about being in contact with other people. But, for these road trip suggestions, we recommend keeping your protective equipment with you, especially if camping with other people. Again, make sure to call the campground beforehand to make sure they are even open during your dates of travel.

Wrap-Up

To summarize, your road trip doesn’t have to be any more challenging or stressful than it normally would. Just make sure you are prepared in advance by following these road trip suggestions. Plan a route you want to take, create a checklist of everything you need to bring, and research the places you want to go/stay and make sure they are open. If you follow these tips, your trip is sure to go off without a hitch!

Important Disclosures and Requirements

 Electronic Consent:  Consent to Receive Information Electronically 

The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act requires users of this Site who submit a Contact Form (“you” or “your”) consent to receive certain disclosures electronically. Please read this disclosure and consent carefully and retain a copy of this document for your records. 

ELECTRONIC RECORDS 

Some communications with and disclosures by Yield Solutions Group, LLC dba RefiJet.com (“RefiJet.com” or “us” or “we”) on its behalf and on behalf of participating banks, finance companies, and credit unions (hereinafter called “Lenders”) are conducted electronically. In order to access, receive and retain required notices and your documents, including, any notices and disclosures required by state or federal law, such as our Privacy Notice, loan documents and disclosures that we provide to you on behalf of any Lender, and any other transaction notices and information from us (collectively, “Documents”) electronically, you must satisfy the minimum system requirements outlined below. However, if you wish to obtain a paper copy of any Documents that RefiJet provides you in connection with your credit inquiry and any subsequent application to our Lenders, you may contact Yield Solutions Group, LLC (dba RefiJet.com) in writing at 7555 E. Hampden Ave., Ste. 500, Denver, CO 80231 or by email at Info@RefiJet.com. We currently do not charge a fee to send you a paper copy of any electronic Document, but reserve our ability to do so. Be sure to state which of the Documents you are requesting.  

RefiJet.com reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to stop providing Documents electronically. RefiJet may also send Documents to you in paper form because we are legally required to do so or because we determine in our sole discretion that you should receive the Documents in paper rather than electronic form.  RefiJet.com will provide you with notice of any such termination as required by applicable law. If RefiJet.com chooses to stop providing Documents electronically, RefiJet.com will send any future Documents to you in paper form. Certain disclosures, however, will be made to you verbally if permitted by applicable law (the “Verbal Disclosures”).   

YOUR CONSENT IS REQUIRED 

You must consent to receive Documents  electronically in order to complete the credit inquiry process with RefiJet.com and any subsequent loan process with one of our participating Lenders. Your consent will apply to Documents as defined above. You may withdraw your consent for receiving electronic Documents by notifying us in any of the ways described above. Since RefiJet.com is structured to process all or part of your credit inquiry and any subsequent loan  electronically, not consenting, or withdrawing your consent to receive electronic Documents may result in the termination of the credit inquiry and/or loan process. Your withdrawal of this consent is effective only after we have had a reasonable period of time to act upon your withdrawal. Even if you consent, note that the Verbal Disclosures will be made to you telephonically. 

If you wish to withdraw your consent to do business electronically with our participating Lenders, you may do so at no cost to you by contacting the Lender at the mailing address, email address or telephone number they provide to you separately for such purpose.  

CONSENT TO RECEIVE DOCUMENTS ELECTRONICALLY 

In order to use this service, you must consent to receive Documents electronically and you agree that these electronic disclosures will be sufficient as a “writing” under applicable law.  

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS 

In order to receive, access and retain electronic Documents, you will need the following hardware and software: 

  • a computer, mobile device, tablet or similar device with an internet connection; 
  • a current web browser that supports HTTPS connectivity;  
  • a current version of a software program that can open and display PDF files (such as an Adobe Acrobat reader); 
  • a valid email address with email software to communicate with us electronically; and 
  • an installed printer or sufficient storage space to save, store, print or otherwise retain electronic Documents. 

 These disclosures and the Documents are both provided to you in PDF; therefore, your access to this page from your own system/device verifies that your system/device has the necessary software to permit you to receive and access PDF files. 

If the system requirements for accessing the copy of your Documents on the secure webpage change so as to require different or additional hardware or software, or upgrades, plug-ins or enhancements to the hardware or software used by you (all such changes referred to as a “Systems Enhancement”), we will notify you and you may either withdraw your consent or upgrade your hardware and/or software as required by the Systems Enhancement.  

This consent is valid until revoked by either party. 

It is important that you keep your email address current with us.  Please notify us at 1.800.260.5355 if your contact information changes at any point in the refinance process.  We may treat your failure to provide us with a valid email address, or the malfunction of the email address we have for you, as a withdrawal of your consent to receive Documents electronically. 

System Requirements to Retain Information 

If you have a valid email address, a copy of the loan Documents will be provided to you upon execution in the form of an email link to a secure portal that will contain the PDF loan documents. You will log into the secure portal using your access credentials. The PDF document will be available to you in the secure portal for thirty (30) days. To retain a copy of the Documents, you may choose to print them, save them or both.
