When you’re driving you should be 100% focused. And if you need something, you should be able to reach it with one hand. With this Multifunctional Car Seat Organizer you can be sure all your daily essentials and must-haves are in place.
Having your partner in the passenger seat is nice for navigation and company, but we all know that the most comfortable place for the road trip is a back seat of course. Nevertheless, your partner needs to feel comfy and relaxed too. These Headrest Pillows are comfortable and safe.
Get the whole family involved in choosing favorites and make a mix you can play when you lose your favorite station or you’ve been driving so long that the popular songs start repeating. This Portable Bluetooth Speaker will let you enjoy your favorite songs all drive long.
If you travel for a long time you should do it in comfirt! Set a car freshener on the air vent. Keep fresh scents circulating throughout your car with the air conditioning turned on.
What would a road trip be without a few movies to pass the time? Choose your favorite DVDs and bring them along, or check out some from a Redbox and you can return them along the way. Better yet, download them to a laptop and everyone can watch when they want.
Nothing is worse than dog hair all over your car’s upholstery unless it’s that wet-dog smell that imbeds itself in upholstery and lingers forever. Buy a waterproof seat cover that lets your pet ride in comfort while protecting your back seats.
Hands up who doesn’t use their phone not just for maps, but music, photos, messaging family. Some even take phone calls on them! Road tripping can drain your battery fast so make sure you have it plugged in with a car charger.
Most cars now have a purpose-made USB socket for this (or a USB adaptor that can fit in the lighter socket on older cars). Just check if you need USB, USB C or a combination of both + the cord to plug your phone in!
If your navigation systems is not built-in to your car and you’re using maps it’s essential you can easily see these without taking your eyes off the road.
A car phone holder need not be an expensive addition, something simple like this can do the job and keep your eyes safely where they should be.
Everyone in the family should have access to a water bottle throughout to prevent dehydration – but pro trip – get a drink cooler! Water in the car tend to get hot fast.
Even on a cloudy day sun glare when you’re driving can be an issue. Make sure the driver especially has some good 100% UV protection sunglasses and all passengers may well want a pair too. (This is something it never hurts to keep a spare of in the globe box too).
A good utility shovel can dig your car out of trouble. Plus, it’s also handy for chopping away branches, clearing pathways, and battling roving hordes of the undead that happen to ruin your road- or camping trip, earning it another name — a survival shovel — and a place in the pantheon of car essentials.
When your trip is over and everyone is back home, you’ll need to take care of your car. Even though you looked and planned everything ahead, your precious iron friend still needs to be cleaned after a long road trip. This great Portable Car Vacuum Cleaner will save your time and clean your car smoothly.
Of course, you should make sure your car is up-to-date on tune-ups and oil changes before hitting the road. Bring along an emergency road kit, too, filled with bandages, antiseptic wipes or spray, jumper cables, and other necessities.
