Jumper Cables 


We’re starting off the list with an essential item that no car should be without. Jumper cables are a good idea for any road trip because you truly never know what can happen. It’s much easier to accidentally kill your battery than you think. Bringing along jumper cables could be a true lifesaver.

Headphones are a must—not everyone wants to listen to full-blast dubstep the entire car ride. Nothing against our EDM fans out there, but it’s nice to have the option to throw in your earbuds and escape to your own musical realm. Or maybe even throw on a good podcast to keep you entertained for a couple of hours. 


Travel Pillow 


A small travel pillow will elevate your comfort tenfold on any road trip. Let’s face it: your passengers will eventually get tired at some point along your journey. Make sure they have a small pillow for some respite from the long trip. It’s always nice to be able to rest your head on a pillow instead of having your head bob up and down as you doze off in the passenger seat. 


Car Chargers 


It’s no secret that most of us are addicted to our phones. It’s almost like we need the radiant glow of an iPhone to keep us sane. Make sure everyone is happy and entertained by bringing along some car chargers. Bringing car chargers is also a great idea in case of emergencies. If you need to make a call, you’ll have a fully charged phone.

Garbage Bags


Road trips can get messy. Packing a few trash bags to help keep the car clean along the way is always a great idea. There’s no worse feeling than knowing your car looks more like a dumpster than a vehicle after a road trip. Trash piles up quickly with all the snacks consumed along the ride—keep your car clean for a more comfortable and enjoyable road trip.
