Share This Post


There’s something undeniably exciting about hitting the open road and embarking on a road trip. Whether you’re planning a weekend getaway or a cross-country expedition, having the right car accessories can make all the difference. At Automotive Parts Distribution (APD), we understand the importance of a well-equipped car for a successful road trip. In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to some essential car accessories that will enhance your journey and make your road trip experience enjoyable.

Roof Racks and Roof Boxes

Maximise your vehicle’s storage capacity with roof racks and top boxes. These accessories provide additional space to carry luggage, camping gear, bicycles or any other bulky items you may need for your road trip. Ensure you purchase a high-quality roof rack or roof box as they will be durable, easy to install, and compatible with your car. Say goodbye to cramped interiors and travel with everything you need conveniently stored on the roof of your car!

Travel Organisers and Storage Solutions

Keeping your belongings organised during a road trip is ideal for a stress-free journey. Invest in travel organisers and storage solutions to keep items easily accessible and prevent clutter. Boot organisers, seatback organisers, and cargo nets are practical accessories that help you maximise space and keep everything in its place. APD offers a variety of interior and exterior accessories for all vehicle types, ensuring a neat and organised interior throughout your journey.

Satellite Navigation and Smartphone Mounts

Never lose your way during your road trip with a reliable satnav system or smartphone mount. Dedicated satnav devices provide accurate and real-time directions, while smartphone mounts keep your device securely in place, allowing you to access navigation apps conveniently. Make sure you purchase a satellite navigation system or smartphone mount that is designed to fit your vehicle, helping you stay on track and reach your destination smoothly.

Travel Comfort and Peace of Mind

Long hours on the road can be tiring, but the right travel comfort accessories can make your journey more pleasant. Invest in supportive and ergonomic seat cushions to reduce fatigue, especially during extended drives. Neck pillows and lumbar support cushions can also enhance your comfort, ensuring you arrive at your destination feeling refreshed. APD provides a selection of travel, towing and breakdown accessories that could be beneficial to your well-being during long road trips.

Car Maintenance and Emergency Kits

Prepare for the unexpected by equipping your vehicle with car maintenance and emergency kits. These kits typically include items such as jumper cables, tyre inflators, first aid kits and emergency tools. Regular car maintenance checks before your trip are also essential to ensure your vehicle is in good working condition. APD offers comprehensive car maintenance and emergency kits to keep you prepared for any situation that may arise during your road trip.

Portable DVD players, tablet mounts, or Bluetooth-enabled audio systems can provide entertainment for passengers, especially during long stretches of driving. These accessories help to keep everyone entertained and make the journey more enjoyable for all.
