Traveling during a pandemic can be a stress-inducing event on its own, without the added concern that you've forgotten a crucial item that brings you comfort and reassurance in these uncertain times. That's why we've compiled the items that you absolutely cannot do without (and a few that're just kinda cute) if you're debating planning a road trip this summer. While you're jamming out to your summer 2020 road trip playlist or working from your lap desk out of the passenger seat, you can feel certain that you checked all the boxes off your packing list.
Whether you're planning a weekend ride out of the city or taking a more extended cross country road trip, we've got you covered with hand sanitizer, cozy sweats, and everything in between. Since you'll be spending lots of time in the seat of a car, we made sure to include everything you'll need to ensure your comfort, safety, and entertainment.
