Emergency Must Haves When Traveling

Thank you SmartPlanet for providing me the Sharper Image 4 in 1 Emergency Tool at no cost for my review. All opinions are my own.  In addition, this post contains affiliate links. See full disclosure here.

A few weeks ago my family and I traveled from Texas to Florida by car. It was a long car drive with very few stops. Since our family is so big this is our normal way of traveling. When we are on the road it’s important that we make sure to have the right Emergency Must Haves When Traveling. We want to be prepared and we want to be as safe as possible.

When traveling, especially on a long road trip, it’s important that you prepare for the unexpected. I am a big believer in never being too prepared. Here is a list of emergency must-haves when traveling:

  • Towels: These are perfect for unexpected spills or if anyone gets sick.
  • Grocery Bags: Perfect for if someone unexpectedly gets car sick.
  • List of Emergency Phone Numbers: Even though you have a list of phone numbers stored in your phone, it’s important to have a list of numbers written down somewhere if you are in a car accident and your phone becomes lost.
  • First Aid Kit
  • Blanket: If there is an emergency, flat tire, or car accident, a blanket may come in handy.
  • Sharper Image 4 in 1 Emergency Tool: This is an all in 1 tool that includes 4 emergency tools. It includes a flashlight, emergency hammer, seat belt cutter and a road flare.

I love this gadget because not only does it take up very little space in the car, but it includes items that you don’t necessarily think about having with you while traveling. I would never think to have a seat belt cutter, emergency hammer or a road flare. Even though these items can be useful and extremely important in certain situations they are often forgotten about when preparing for a road trip. We hope we never need this gadget but will be thankful for it if we ever do need it.

When each winter begins, I go to thrift stores and pick up cheap extra things we might need in the car in case our car stalls during the cold winter months. Someone always seems to leave the house with out mittens or a hat….so I make sure we have extras for everyone in the car.
