Heading out on an auto adventure? Before you’re totally locked and loaded and heading down the highway, make sure you’re stocked up on road trip essentials. The best part? You can get them all on Amazon.

6-Port Universal Car Charger

Most vehicles only come with one or two charging ports, and that's why you won't want to head out on vaycay without a 6-Port Universal Car Charger ($21.99). Made to fit in your cupholder, this lightening charger comes with a safety chip to prevent overheating and will charge all your phones, tablets and game consoles!

High Road Car Organizer with Cooler and Snack Tray

Road trippers and busy moms will more than survive the summer with the High Road Car Organizer with Cooler and Snack Tray ($49.99). It's made with pockets on both sides, a drink holder that converts to a storage bin, a lined and insulated interior and a seatbelt strap. The booster-high height means its perfect for your little travelers and helps with independence, too.

42 Piece Premium Road Kit

For only $25, you can have peace of mind with a 42 Piece Emergency Car Kit that comes with a flashlight, jumper cables and everything you need to stay safe on the road. Coming in a high-quality bag, the kit weighs less than three pounds and won't take up much room amidst your luggage.

Fire HD 10 Kids Edition

Break up a long car ride or give mom and dad a nice quiet time when the kids have fun on the Fire HD 10 Kids Edition Tablet ($139.99). Coming with one year of Amazon Kids+, a free case and a two-year worry-free guarantee, this educational tablet is essential on your next road trip.

Plus-Plus Travel Case

If you have kids who are obsessed with Plus-Plus like we are, you are going to want to order this Plus-Plus Travel Case before your next road trip. The case includes a small base plate and Plus-Plus pieces for your child to build with. Easy to use on a lap in the car, the case zips up for easy storage when you are done. Best for ages 5 and up. 

Sea-Band Wristband

Can we all agree that motion sickness is the worst? Whether you have a normally queasy traveler or plan on taking some windy roads on your upcoming trip, it's a good idea to keep a few Sea-Band wristbands ($12) on hand. They work by applying pressure to acupressure points on each wrist which has been proven to relieve nausea and vomiting. They are reusable, washable and a natural way to combat car sickness!

Igloo Playmate Cooler


Whether you snag second-hand versions of these at garage sales, or pick up one of these limited edition Mickey versions, it's fun to give each kid their own Igloo cooler for your road trip. Pack it with an ice pack, snacks and drinks and your little one has control over when they can enjoy their snacks. 

Microfiber Towels

Road trips are messy business. Between cleaning up spills, mopping up after a sudden rainfall or taming other fluids (hello, car sickness), it's always a smart idea to have towels on hand. Microfiber towels like these from Amazon Basics ($12) come in a large 24-pack and absorb up to eight times their own weight.

BCOZZY Kids Chin Supporting Travel Pillow

Machine washable and coming with a built-in snap for easy transport, the BCOZZY Kids Chin Supporting Travel Pillow ($30) will give your kiddos rest on the go! Choose from seven colors and let the kids enjoy the support they need to get all the cat naps they want.

Rand McNally 2021 Large Scale Road Atlas

We're the first to admit that technology is great, but traveling in the wilderness doesn't always mean a great cell signal. Don't leave the house without keeping a Rand McNally 2021 Large Scale Road Atlas ($18) in the glove box or at your fingertips. It'll get you where you need to go, without arguing about whether you should stop for directions.

MyTidyCar Car Trash Can

Water bottles, fast food trash, snack wrappers––oh my! Controlling the mess is a must on the road, and the MyTidyCar Car Trash Can ($14) is here to save the day. The waterproof lining can hold up to three gallons and can be used as an organizer when the trip's over and the trash is at bay.
