1. Essential documents:
    While you can produce your vehicle documents online via DigiLocker, keep the physical documents handy just to be on the safer side. You might not find an internet network everywhere. In such situations, the physical documents related to your vehicle will help you cross Check Posts smoothly.

    A first-aid kit is a must while on the road. You never know when you or a fellow passenger might need primary medical attention.

*Antiseptic cream

  1. Drinking water:
    To enjoy your time on the road, you must keep yourself hydrated. Thus, there must be a couple of bottles of drinking water in your car all the time. Depending on the duration of your trip, you can also carry large bottles of drinking water in the boot of your car. Extra water will also help if your car gets overheated or you need to clean something.

    You will need your smartphones charged to make calls, make payments, and find directions or places to eat/stay nearby. So, you must carry phone chargers in the car. Also, don’t forget about the USB cables to connect your mobile phone with your car’s music system and play your favourite songs.
