Packing for a Road Trip: What to Bring

Family Road Trip

Ready to start packing for a road trip? Make sure you include these items to make the journey a more painless experience for everyone involved.

Smartphones and Chargers

We use smartphones for a lot these days, from audio to navigation. Did you know you can also check nearby hotel and gas prices through apps? When you pack your phone, make sure you bring along your chargers, too.

Change of Clothes

When you’re packing outfits for the trip, don’t forget to bring along an extra set of clothes or two in case of an emergency.

Cooler

Bringing a cooler is helpful because you can use it to stow snacks for the car ride and also take it with you to the beach. Don’t forget to bring water!

First Aid Kit

Whether you’re with your family, friends, or by yourself, it’s important to have access to emergency supplies. Lots of stores sell fully equipped first aid kits to bring along in the car.

Fun Stuff

In addition to any electronic devices your family may have, you may want to make sure every passenger brings along a book, activity, or favorite toy to ward off boredom.

With these items packed, you’ll be well on your way to an enjoyable trip — and well-prepared for any unexpected issues. Before you go, stop into Hiley Mazda of Fort Worth to test drive a new Mazda.
