Car accessories you need on a road trip

Unfortunately, road trips mean plenty of time behind the wheel. Luckily there are plenty of options to choose from so you can enhance your experience by making the journey smoother, enjoyable and safer. Whether the accessories are to keep your car cleaner, to charge devices while driving, saving your life, or even those little car gadgets that we all love like a convenient phone holder to make the travel a whole lot easier, we just can’t do without them.
If you have an ultra-modern car, you likely won’t need as many of these functions as those who do. Having some touches of the modern world can add plenty of safety and comfort to your ride.

With dual side openings, you will have easy access to everything inside from whichever side of the vehicle you choose.

Armour All Car Vac

Keeping things clean and organised when travelling can be hard, especially with children. Even if you have accessories in your car to have your things organised such as mobile phone stands, wire separator, cup holders, etc. Things may still be in a mess when you have plenty of things to carry around for your travel.  The Armor Car Vac can clean your vehicle like never before and is compact, lightweight and very easy to use. The device is handheld and can plug into your cars 12-volt outlet. The best feature here is the fact the vac can pick up both wet and dry messes.
