When it comes to traveling, I am a plane girl through and through but there is just so special about going on a road trip. From the memories you create to all of the fun stops along the way, if it’s been a while since your last road trip, here’s your sign to start planning your next one! To make road trips even easier, there are a few essentials I have and love. I promise they’ll be game-changing! Here are the best road trip essentials from Amazon.
Road Trip Essentials from Amazon
Car Seat Organizer
I am all for an organizer that helps keep tension at bay, especially on a road trip. Yes, tensions will always be high when you’re with multiple people in a small space, but this car organizer makes it easier to manage small items like water bottles, and to hold up your kiddo’s iPad!
If you have kids, these window shades are a must-have when road-tripping, especially during nap time. I can’t even tell you how many times these have saved us and they’re an item we’ll never not use!
When it comes to our car, I am always looking for items that will keep us organized. This trunk organizer is especially great during a road trip. Place it with all of your essentials, snacks, and beverages in the back of your trunk to make it easier to access.
Car Trash Can with Lid
Keep trash all in one place with this car trash can. It also has fragrance tablets to keep trash scents at a minimum.
Leather Sunglass Holder
The days of losing your sunglasses in the car are over. This leather sunglass holder is magnetic and easily fastens to your sun visor, making it easy to keep track of your sunnies!
First Aid Kit
A first aid kit is a must in any car, especially if you have children or are going on a road trip. This one is my favorite! It has over 55 items to help with any first-aid emergency.
Leather Car Neck Pillow
If you feel a constant strain on your neck from not sitting against the car seat/headrest properly, this car neck pillow is one of the best purchases you can make for a road trip.
Sanitizing Hand Wipes
We are a sanitizing hand wipes family, especially with a little one. I’ve tried all different brands but these ones from ALO are hands-down my favorite. Not only do they clean and sanitize our hands, but they smell delicious (love the orange bergamot scent!) and leave your hands so soft.
Portable Hand Vacuum
It’s no secret that cars get (extremely) messy on road trips and this portable hand vacuum makes cleaning up easy. Easily recharge on the go, too!
Cup Holder Tray
Tired of balancing your lunch on your lap while on a road trip? This cup holder tray will change your life. Not only does it have two cup holders, but it also has a flat tray surface to hold your food.
Car Seat Cushion
If you’re going to be taking a long road trip, or are pregnant with tailbone pain, I cannot recommend this car seat cushion enough! It’s super soft and comfortable when you’re spending hours in a car.
Wireless Power Bank
You might be laughing about having a power bank when you’re going to be in a car, but this one is game-changing. It not only serves as a charger for your phone but also has a plug for other electronics and can even jump-start your car. This alone makes this gadget worth it!
For all of my fellow passenger princesses, you know how important a car blanket is. This one is the best of the best; it’s so soft and has a nice little pouch it can easily be folded up into. Perfect for kids, too!
