There are a couple of long weekends this year, and that means more opportunities to take a road trip! A road trip with friends is one of those activities that never gets old. The thrill of hitting the open road, listening to some tunes and chatting till the wee hours is what movies and memories are made of.
Road trips are definitely something you need to prepare and plan for ahead of time. Your car becomes your home when travelling, which means you will need to carry some things – just what are those 10 things to bring on your next road trip? We thought you’d never ask!
Good thing we’ve curated this list for you. Check them out!
1. Keep Dry
A portable towel is a must-have when it comes to road trips, there is no excuse for bad hygiene! Whether you stop at a motel or a dhaba to freshen up, a quick-dry towel will come in handy. This one has silver ion technology that makes it durable and absorbent. It’s 70 cms by 120 cms in size which is large enough for any use but still convenient because it folds down to the size of your hand.

2. Rest Up
Every road trip needs a co-driver, someone who takes over from the driver every few hours so that they can catch some rest. This is essential, especially when the journey is long and tedious. Having a good foam neck pillow can help with getting a good rest while the co-driver is on duty and vice versa. We like this custom neck pillow, get one for you and your co-driver as a way to remember the trip and get some rest.
