1. Phone charger:
Be sure to bring a phone charger along with you in case your car breaks down, but also make sure that the charger is compatible with your phone so that there are no problems.
You may have to stop along the way to fill up on gas or to purchase food or other supplies. Be sure to have enough gas in your tank so that you can be on the go as soon as possible.
Even if you are just driving through a town, it may be wise to stop at a restaurant along the way and grab food. Having food in the car can keep your stomach from growling, which may stop you from eating while on the road. If you are planning a road trip, make sure to take enough food so that you can eat at least once or twice a day.
Keep spare batteries in your car so that you can stay connected with others via the phone in your car or use the GPS system. The GPS system is vital when driving through unfamiliar areas or hilly terrain, which can create track confusion. If your car breaks down while on the road, it may be difficult to find help without help from others. Make sure to pack enough battery power and a car charger so that you will be ready for any emergency.
5. Road maps and directions:
Your car should have a paper map of your destination on hand. If you are traveling through an area that is unfamiliar, it is wise to use the GPS system built into your car. Make sure to bring enough road maps as well as directions for the area as some towns do not have signs pointing the way to town from the highway.
