15 things you need on a road trip

It would seem that autotravel does not require anything special: the keys, a couple of playlists with favorite music and that’s it. But a car trip always requires more effort and careful planning. When it’s done, the time spent behind the wheel is doomed to be full of joy and great experiences.

1. First aid kit

Wherever you stop – for a snack, an overnight stay, or just to make couple of scenic pictures, you should always be fullyroad trip equipped for first aid. Safety first!

2. Food and drink

The best way to save money and keep the atmosphere of the trip is to stock up on food and drinks. Stop to eat at special places, spread a tablecloth on the trunk of a car. And keep yourself full on the road, which is not always strewn with gas station shops.

3. Dishes

Take with you something from which you will absorb supplies from points 2: a travel cup, iron bowls, spoons, food containers.

4. Gas burner, pot/pan, thermos, matches

Are you going to wild places? There is no need to constantly eat chips and cookies. Quickly cooked scrambled eggs, brewed tea. What could be more joyful in the morning?

5. Necessary things for the car

A spare tire, engine oil, gasoline supplies and everything to get you to your destination painlessly.

6. Sleeping bags and tents

You can’t spend eternity in a car. Instead of hotels, try to save money and settle somewhere with tents. Check the temperature minimum of the area you will be passing through and bring appropriate sleeping bags.

Without documents, you risk getting to a police patrol, but not to your destination.

8. GPS

In case of leaving the car and visiting foggy and rainy places carry also raincoat with you.

10. A couple of plaids, a neck pillow
