I love going on road trips. There’s something about them that feels so exciting, adventurous, and freeing.
With summer being just around the corner, this is the perfect time to plan your first or next road trip.
Before going on your road trip, it’s essential that specific car safety concerns are met. This includes having your car checked at your automotive repair shop.
You’ll want to make sure your oil and filter are changed, your tires are well inflated, your windshield wipers are replaced (if needed), and your fluids are topped off. Basically, you want to ensure that your car is in good condition before you head out.
Now that your car is road trip ready, here are 30 of my must-have items when packing for a road trip.
Road Trip Essentials You Should Pack
- Comfortable clothing
- Road trip playlist
- Portable device charger
- Cash (including change)
- Moist towelettes
- Pocket knife
- Over-the-counter pain medicines
