Road Trip Survival 101

Road Trip Survival 101

By Rawan AlZubaidi

Here’s a guide to surviving the bumpy ride 


After spending the 24 hours of road trip  in the middle of nowhere, my car decided to die just 300 meters short of home. I spent the next few hours sans human connection (and WiFi), berating myself for the stuff I left back home. That’s when I made a list of must-haves that every human, especially me, must pack while spending hours/days on road.

So, if like me, your vacation involves a long road trip, here’s a list of what you need:.

Essentials

  1. License, registration, ID, passport; are all  very important.
  2. Pocket money: To fill up your car tank and to buy snacks to keep you busy.
  3. First-aid kit in case of emergency. Pack it in a separate bag, so that you don’t misplace it in the junk of your own handbag.
  4. Jumper cable: This is HIGHLY necessary. Take it from me and my personal experience. I almost burst into tears of happiness for carrying it after our car battery died in the middle of the desert.
  5. Phone/iPhone/tablet charger and power banks: to avoid apocalypse.
