Essential Items for Long Road Trips This Winter

If you do a lot of driving, especially during the holidays, you must have the items below, so you’re prepared for anything:

  • Tow strap: This is needed if your Toyota vehicle gets stuck in a ditch, and another vehicle is needed to pull you out. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual about the correct way of using a tow strap.
  • Fire extinguisher: This is great to have in the event of a small fire, but make sure it’s a fire extinguisher intended for automotive use.
  • Long-lasting food and water: It’s always best to have some water and long-lasting food, especially on long trips. Granola, protein bars, and water can last for about six months before expiring.
