Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

Are you thinking of making a long journey for the holidays? Carry these items in your winter emergency kit to make sure you’re ready for anything:

  • Fire extinguisher: Small fires, although rare, can ruin more than just a day of travel. Keep a fire extinguisher intended for automotive use on hand to stay on top of any small fires you may experience.
  • Tow strap: This handy piece of equipment can help make sure your Kia Optima or Sorento climbs out of a ditch with the aid of another vehicle. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual has complete directions on how properly use a tow strap.
  • Long-lasting food and water: With enough water and long-lasting food, especially on long trips, you should be set for most extreme cases. Granola, protein bars, and water are perfect additions to make the best car emergency kit.
