The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Checklist [2019 Edition]

Looking for a way to add some life to your summer vacation? Getting a group of friends together, picking a destination, packing up your bags, and hitting the road is one of the best ways to enjoy the season before it ends. Nothing beats bonding with your favorite people quite like spending hours together in a road trip to remember. 

If your upcoming summer plans include a road trip, we’ve got the ultimate list of packing essentials, car prep tips, and ideas for recording your favorite entertainment to help you plan the best trip ever.

Pack Only the Essentials

Whether you’re just headed into the city or have a full cross-country drive ahead of you, if your main living space is your vehicle, every bit of space counts. No matter how long your road trip may be, packing only as much as you need in your carry-on or suitcase is the best way to help you save a lot of valuable space. With more space, you’ll have more room for the most essential things like snacks, drinks, games, and most importantly, legroom.

Prep a Basic Emergency Kit

Nothing ruins a trip quite like being stranded in the middle of nowhere with no basic resources. If AAA has you on hold, or if you have no cell signal, having an emergency kit prepared and easily accessible could be a lifesaver. While there are pre-made emergency backpacks that exist for purchase, you can’t be sure they will have every necessity, so we recommend DIY’ing it.

Make sure to include these basic items to be sure you’re all set:

    • Emergency food & water
    • Thermal blankets
    • Flashlight with extra batteries
    • First aid kit
    • Emergency cash
    • Roadmap
    • Car charger for your cell phone
    • Jumper cables

Plan Healthy Foods and Snacks

The fastest way to kill the positive vibe on a road trip? Getting stuck in the car while you’re feeling sick or sluggish. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and bring healthier snacks and foods to munch on along the way. Rather than relying on fast food, jerky, chips, and other gas station snacks, having some of these essentials will keep your energy up in the best way:

Sliced vegetables like celery, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, and broccoli are all packed with nutrients and stay fresh for a long trip.

Fresh berries and fruits like grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and plums are delicious, vitamin-packed snacks.

Dry items like trail mix, pita chips, dried fruit, protein bars, granola, and pretzels are all great snacks to have on you at all times.

Storable meats and cheeses are a great way to throw together a quick sandwich on the road, or just take a quick piece for some fast protein.

Pro tip: Line your cooler with insulation to keep food fresher longer, and only keep it open as long as you absolutely need to when getting something out. How you pack up your cooler each day makes a difference!

Take a Look Under the Hood

You should treat your car like your own body on a road trip. It needs occasional pampering, a little TLC, and regular check-ups for maximum performance, especially before you put it to work. When the check engine light suddenly pops on or you start feeling a rattling under the hood, it can make any pleasant road trip stressful.

To avoid this, make sure that you take your car into your local mechanic for a regular checkup a few days before taking off, along with prepping a few other things. Here are a few things you should take care of:

    • An oil change, basic tire check, and rotation if needed.
    • Making sure you have wiper fluid all filled up to the brim, and that your wipers are still functional.
    • Putting a recent copy of your insurance information and registration straight into your glovebox for easy access.
    • Cleaning the car inside and out, and making a plan for garbage disposal so things don’t get too messy.

Download the Best Entertainment

When you’re on your trip and have played all the road trip games you can think of, what could be better than turning to your favorite music, show, movie or podcast? Unfortunately for media lovers out there, WiFi isn’t exactly readily available out on the open road and data runs out quickly.

With media-recording software in the Replay Capture Suite, you can download, record, and save all types of online media to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

Record Music: In order to achieve road trip success you must have one essential thing: a playlist. With Replay Music you can easily record any music or entire playlists from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Apple Music, and any other online music site or service that you listen to music on – if you can stream it online, you can capture it forever! With this tool, you’ll never run out of music again. Here’s a playlist that’s full of songs to get your car singing:

Download Podcasts: Replay Radio allows you to download any podcast to listen to any time. Whether you are new to the scene, or for those who are seasoned listeners, Replay Radio makes it simple to download and archive podcasts to listen to anywhere, on any device.
