- Paper Maps
- Seatbelt Cutter and Window Breaker
- Emergency Money
- Jumper Cables
- Energy Bars
- Tire Inflator and Sealer
- Pencil and Paper
These important items are often left out when we think of the basic things we may keep in our car. During Spring Break, be prepared with these items.
- Paper maps (yes, they still exist), like those we found at the Rand McNally Store, are great for an old school road trip. They also are life savers if you happen to get lost, have no cell service, or your GPS stops working.
- A seatbelt cutter and window breaker like this one we found on Amazon, can be extremely helpful particularly if your vehicle is submerged in water. Attach to your visor to reach in a hurry.
- Keep a small stash of money (dollars and coins) in a safe place for emergencies or unexpected tolls. Keep count of your piggy bank at least once a month and replenish as needed.
- Jumper cables are essential to any car’s trunk. Keep a pair that are reliable by checking out the 10 Best Jumper Cables by Best Reviews Guide.
- Who doesn’t enjoy a nice, warm blanket? Have one accessible for an impromptu stay or picnic.
- A portable tire inflator can help you or someone else in need pump up a flat tire. Check out this cordless inflator from the Home Depot.
- Keeping a small notebook and a few pens in your glove compartment makes it easy to take notes when on the go or in an emergency.
Small amenities come in handy for any road trip. Take a look at these mini travel-sized accessories, snacks, and travel aids from minimums.biz.
We hope this list helps you feel safe, prepared, and gives you peace of mind while traveling. A neat trunk organizer can help you make the most of the space available no matter the size of your car.
