Summer is here and now is the perfect time to get ready for the road. Packing for a road trip can be a lot of fun, however, it’s important to stay organized. Knowing what to pack and where to pack it will make your journey smooth. These tips and organizers will help make your trip easy, and are available at your local AAA Travel Store.
CHECK TRAVEL ADVISORIES
It’s more important than ever to research your route in advance. In the midst of COVID-19, travel restrictions are changing constantly. Contact your AAA Travel Agent or check travel advisories for updated information.
CAR CENTER CONSOLE
To minimize exposure at rest areas, self-pump gas stations, and other places, keep your PPE (personal protection equipment) close at hand in the center console or the door side pocket. The Eagle Creek Quick Trip Bag, with three zippered compartments, is perfect for organizing items like masks, sanitizer wipes, disposable gloves and so on.
It’s also great for organizing toiletries or for first aid supplies.

Now’s the time to clean out your glove box and only put what you need back in. A set of Eagle Creek Pack It™ Sacs makes organizing simple.
Keep important documents like car insurance, pen and paper, etc. in the small Sac for easy access. The medium Sac is the perfect size to keep travel tech items like charging cables, mobile battery and ear buds from getting lost.
And what’s a road trip without snacks? The large Sac has lots of room for snacks; think trail mix, nuts, things that won’t melt in a hot car.

MIDDLE SEAT AREA
Keep car chaos at bay with the Eagle Creek Pack-It Starter set. The small cube is perfect for packing everything you need to hit the beach running: swimsuit, sunhat, and sunscreen.
The medium cube fits under most seats to maximize space and has a handle making it easy to grab and go. Roll-up t-shirts and shorts to save space. The mesh top makes it easy to spot what you’re looking for and allows clothes to breath, especially important after days on the road!
Finally, the folder is perfect for hotel stays or family visits, keeping 8-12 items wrinkle free. Washable and water repellent, these Eagle Creek essentials are great for organizing cars, RV’s and of course suitcases.
Tip: If you leave your car to go into a restaurant, etc. be sure to keep your valuables with you – including laptops, medications, smartphones, etc.

TRUNK & CARGO AREA
For longer trips, duffle bags and soft sided luggage are good choices since they can be stuffed into awkward corners & deep trunks. If your trip includes hotel stays, a semi-structured spinner wheeled bag like the Eagle Creek Expanse, is the answer. Eagle Creek backs up their products with their No Matter What™ warranty. With handles on all four sides it makes it easy to grab inside a packed car from any direction. Plus, the wheels make it easy to maneuver through large parking lots and long hallways without having to lug heavy bags.
