If you're anything like us you may have spent the last year exploring places closer to home, and swapped foreign jaunts for UK hotspots, such as secluded beaches, due to travel restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Whether it's day trips to quaint villages, longer staycations, camping trips with the family, or beach breaks with pals, it's safe to say we've enjoyed finding hidden gems, and have had as good a time (if not better) than jetting abroad.
And the best bit is, with a UK roadtrip, you can just load up the car and go - with no luggage restrictions apart from leaving room for the dog.
While some may be taking everything they own with them (or is that just me?) on their travels, it's important to pack some basic essentials for your car too, so you're never stuck without supplies on the hard shoulder at 2am.
With all eventualities in mind, we have curated a selection of serious must-haves, as well as a mix of fun car props, so you know you're covered on your long drives this summer.
From warning triangles, roof racks and sun visors to ketchup holders and food trays - pack them all. Because you just never know.
