If we start to enumerate the essentials for a road trip, then the list never ceases to expand. That’s because you’re never sure about what happens on the road. However, when we say ‘essentials’ it’s about things without which you cannot make do.

Now there are so many items which we often carry-on road trips just for recreation. If you are carrying a caravan or a big vehicle, you will find plenty of space to accommodate all of them. But in many other cases, you may not be able to carry so many items.

So, in this piece of article, we will narrow down the list to 3 must-have accessories that will help you in case of emergencies.

1# Car Repairing Gear

First and foremost, you need to make sure that your wheels are able to take you to your destination and then must ensure your return to your abode. There are a few things that you must have on a road trip on a four-wheeler.

Puncture Kit– A punctured tyre can become a major obstacle between you and your destination. To make matter worse, a repair shop may be miles away if the tyre got flat in a remote place. So, it’s wise to carry tools that let you do this on your own.

Spare Tyre– Most probably, you already carry a spare tyre in your car and this habit of yours will help in such circumstances.

Tow Strap– If your vehicle has broken down badly and needs professional assistance, you’ll certainly need this accessory. You can tether the strap to some good fellow’s car and get yours to the nearest mechanic shop.

Lifehammer– It’s something that you’ll have to use in extreme situations, but you should still have it with you. It will help you break the glass and cut the seat belts too.

Jumper Cables– In case the battery is dead, you can use the jumper cable to get the power supply from someone else’s vehicle and transfer to it yours.

Flashlight– It’s essential that helps you get through many problems (related or unrelated to the car) that occur at night.

Repair Gloves– Safety is your topmost priority when repairing your car and it should never be done with bare hands.

2# Food & Water

You might be able to find packaged food on your way and maybe at the destination as well. However, if your road trip takes you to an isolated, it is wiser to have packaged nutty or powdered food items that can be easily prepared. They also remain fresh for a long time and can be easily carried.

3# First Aid Kit

Your first aid kit should include gauze, bandages, antiseptic lotion, scissors, and some basic drugs for fever, pain, and digestion. You may also carry some mosquito and insect repellents that are big if you’re staying in the wilderness.
