Road Trip Essentials

Whether you're headed out on a big 4WD lap or just a quick family weekend away, there are a few important things to remember. Here's a quick guide on what to take with you!

First, make sure you have a way to communicate with the outside world. If your car breaks down or someone gets hurt, you need to be able to call for help! Your phone will do the trick in most cases, but if you're somewhere remote and don't have coverage, consider investing in a satellite phone or UHF that can reach emergency services no matter where you are.

Next up: safety gear. If you're going remote make sure your car has basic recovery gear so that if something goes wrong, you can get back on the road quickly—and safely! You'll also want some basic tools so that if something needs fixing while you're away from home, you won't be stuck without them.

Finally: don't forget about yourself! Bring along some entertainment for the ride and anything else that could come in handy in case of an emergency (like snacks).
