Road Trip EssentialsIf you are planning on going on a road trip in the near future, it pays to be prepared.

1. Sat Nav: Sat navs are an essential part of modern day motoring. They can help you when you plot your route, get around traffic jams, or help you when you are lost. However they aren’t 100 percent reliable – remember to use your common sense when driving!

2. Maps: Sometimes sat navs lose signal or try and get you down impassable roads. This is when a map of your local area can be invaluable! Maps are also a great way to help keep older children quiet – they can try and follow on the map where you are driving.

3. First Aid Kit: It is always a good idea to keep a travel first aid kit in your car at all times.

4. Emergency Rations: You never know when you might get stuck in a traffic jam so it is prudent to always keep some non-perishable food (or sweets) in the car along with a drink.

5. Games & Toys: If you have children you will need to keep them occupied during your car journey. So take plenty of toys and games to keep them busy! If you don’t want to spend a fortune, there are a wide range of games you can play that don’t require anything other than observation skills: try ‘I Spy’, ‘the alphabet game’, or ‘measure a kilometer’.
