Packing essentials for your next road trip

Updated: Jun 17, 2020

We absolutely love road trips!

Van life will probably forever be our favourite way to travel, it's the best way to see a place, a Country, interact more with the locals and get a true feel for a place. You can choose how long you stay in one spot, and when it is time to explore somewhere new. However, it is so very important to ensure you have all the essentials with you!

Whether you will be driving a short road trip, or a longer road trip, it is always good to prepare for any kind of circumstance, no matter how unlikely it seems. We now have our checklist pretty down-pat and reel off to double check we have everything we need before we leave.

This is a pretty comprehensive guide on what you will need for your next road trip!

Packing Essentials

Absolute Driving essentials:

Driving License a bit of an obvious one however this believe it or not has caught us out before. We were about to pick up our 1970's old school Kombi in New Zealand, you can watch our trip here, and Alex realised her license had almost expired, luckily the date just covered the trip but we could have been in trouble!
