A road trip is supposed to be an enjoyable experience whether you are going solo or with friends. But that’s not always the case, as inconveniences can pop up and ruin the fun. That won’t be the case if you follow these five tips to make your road trip more enjoyable.
You don’t want to run out of juice for your phone or camera while on the road. Imagine not being able to document those beautiful memories or call someone in case of an emergency. Be sure to keep your devices charged before leaving, and consider bringing along a portable charger, just in case.
An Indestructible Magnetic Cable is an excellent option as you can use it to charge both Android and iOS devices. Our unique charger design makes charging your phone or tablet a breeze. Our 360-degree rotating cable head allows you to power up from any direction. No more annoyingly twisting and turning your cable to fit in your charging port at one angle and position.
Another great option is Car Wireless Charger Cup which will let you charge your Qi-compatible devices wirelessly. With the cup powered up, all you have to do is stick your smartphone into the phone-charging slot to charge up. AirPods work the same way (just put the case into the charging port). Note that your smartphone must support wireless charging, or else it will not charge. For AirPods, both wireless and traditional models will charge due to the presence of a charger plug.
You should find what you’re looking for in your car without rummaging through a pile of junk. A storage container with compartments such as a can also help hold loose items like maps, sunglasses, and toll money.
If you have a lot of devices, consider getting a car mount or a Multifunctional Car Seat Organizer to keep them within reach but out of the way.

What about your passengers? A Car Back Seat Organizer is also a good idea to keep the entire car organized as everyone has a place to keep their items. Discover six mesh pockets, one center pouch, and one transparent pocket for tablets and devices. Whether it’s snacks, sunglasses, candy, or toys, have all your family’s needs and wants in one place — and not scattered across the backseat or side storage pockets.
Your car isn’t immune to the occasional breakdown no matter how well you take care of it. So, it’s important to be prepared for minor repairs. A small toolkit with basic tools like a screwdriver, wrench, and pliers can come in handy for tightening loose screws and bolts.
A tire repair kit is essential as it can help you fix a flat tire quickly and easily. You get a threaded drill head and fork head, in addition to rubber repair tape strips and a tube of glue that helps patch and seal punctures. This Tire Repair Tool Kit can be a trusty life-saver when in the right hands.
And if something hits your windshield, Windshield Scratch Repair Liquid will save you from having to replace the entire windshield. Repair a multitude of window or windshield chips and cracks — from bugs, cobwebs, half-moon cracks, star-shaped cracks, and combination-style damage. Note cracks have to be less than 1 in / 25 mm in diameter in order for effectiveness. For best results, repairs should be made as soon as possible after the damage occurs and before the crack site is contaminated by dirt or water.
A clean car is a happy car. And this is not just about the outside appearance, but the interior as well.
Ensure to keep garbage out of your car and in a designated place. This will prevent it from building up and making your car smell bad.
A mini trash bin by your side can help with this. Made from non-toxic ABS plastic, our little trash bin mimics the look of large, full-sized trash cans, with a “PUSH” logo at the lid opening. The can fits right into a standard-sized cup holder for a trash bin for snack wrappers right within your reach. The can measures 7.9 x 2.7 inches (L x W).
If you prefer something bigger that will also keep away liquid, Waterproof Car Trash Bin is a great solution. All you have to do is attach the handle buckle over your driver- or front-passenger seat for a handy trash can for your vehicle. Trash now has its own home (and it’s not on the floor or stuffed in a side pocket or cup holder!).
Are your furry friends coming too? Don’t forget to take care of their needs. Have water and food bowls, a mat or blanket, toys, and cleanup bags ready.
If you’re travelling with a cat, think about getting a carrier that can also serve as a litter box. Keep their essentials organized in a Universal Car Storage Mesh. When installed, you get 9.8 x 98 in / 25 x 25 cm of black nylon mesh that securely holds magazines, water bottles, sunglass cases, kids’ toys, tablets, snacks (and so much more). Gain extra space in your vehicle without over-cramming compartments and backseat pockets.
Also, don’t forget that pets can be messy, and if you don’t have protection for your car seats, you’ll be in for a rude shock. Consider getting a Dog Car Seat Cover to keep your upholstery clean and fresh. Our seat cover is designed with care, for multiple layers of love. Built with a waterproof coating, 600D polyester Oxford fabric, thermoplastic polyurethane, soft cotton, and a non-slip net, your pooch can lounge in supreme comfort, whether it’s hours on the road or just a couple of minutes.
With all these essentials at your disposal, nothing can stop you from enjoying a road trip with your family and friends – except for maybe the traffic. But that’s beyond your control. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
