What is the process of getting a shower at the truck stop?

How do you go about purchasing your truck stop shower?

Just walk up to the counter, pay for it, get the key and good luck?

Seriously considering this as I travel a lot to VA and would like to show up at my family's clean and showered and not looking like I spent all night on the road and sleeping in my car...

How do I get the ball rolling? Please help.

yes..anyone can but a shower simply by walking up to the cashier and asking for one. the vast majority are "free" showers, given by truckstops in exchange for having purchased a minimum amount of diesel fuel, usually 50 or 75 gallons minimum equals one free shower. thats why they may ask for a card. but again, ANYONE can purchase one for cash.

Kim, you got it. Just walk up to the counter and tell them you would like to buy a shower. He/she might ask if you have a card. Say again, "No, I don't I want to pay for it with cash."

Sometimes, they don't listen well :-)

What they will do then is take your money and give you a receipt. Depending on what truck stop you are at, that receipt may have a code on it for the shower entry or they may give you a key for the shower.

You also may have to wait for a shower to be cleaned.

Either way, once you give them the money if they don't instruct you on what to do next, just ask them the next step in order to get your shower.
