6 Things Every Car Road Trip Needs

One of the (many) beautiful things about living in California is our close proximity to so many exciting and unique locations. To see some of the most amazing cities, parks, and sites in the country all you have to do is hop in your car and hit the road. However, before you embark on a road trip, it is important to equip your car for the journey to come. We can help you prepare for a road trip with this list of 6 things every car road trip needs.

1. Snacks

First and foremost are snacks. Having good snacks for a road trip is a must, and in all honesty is one of the best parts of the experience. Plan ahead by going to a grocery store and grabbing some of your very favorite snacks for the trip. That way you don’t have to grab your snacks from the gas station, as gas stations offer limited selection and markup their prices. Some road trip favorites include nuts, beef jerky, chips, and trail mix.

2. A Smartphone Charger

Nowadays we rely on our smartphones for just about everything. Our phones provide music, maps, notepads, encyclopedia, and more, and no feeling is as deflating as having your phone die in the middle of a long drive. Make sure you have a working smartphone charger that can plug into your car, or grab a portable charger.

3. Hand Sanitizer

You never know where the road will take you. You may find yourself in truck diner, a gas station bathroom, or having to pull of the road to relieve yourself. Make sure you have some hand sanitizer ready to clean up your hands if a sink is not available, or if the sink is looking pretty unclean itself.

4. A Car DVD Player and TV Monitor

If you are a family on a long road trip, few things can help keep the kids quiet like a car DVD player. Get a headrest or flip down car video player to play your kid’s favorite movies or TV shows while you can relax up front. Many car DVD players come with headphones, so you won’t even have to hear the movie and can listen to music up front. Even if you don’t have kids, relax after a long drive by watching a movie from the comfort of your car.

5. A First Aid Kit

It is impossible to predict when disaster will strike. A first aid kit will have you prepared to deal with most injuries, incidents, and accidents, from a band-aid for a minor papercut to gauze for a bad burn. A first aid kit will also have some Advil in case you have a brutal headache from sitting in traffic.

6. Bottles of Water

If your car breaks down in the middle of the desert, you need to hydrate. That is why it is advisable to always make sure you have bottles of water in your car when you embark on a long road trip. You would rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it.
