    Always carry two containers of water. A large container is handy if you need to top up your radiator, or clean up a mess. You should also carry a smaller bottle for drinking, to prevent dehydration.

    First-aid Kit

    This is the thing you hope you will never use, but it could make a difference for you or other drivers. Basic kits are available from groups such as RACV or St John Ambulance for only $40-50, or you can assemble your own. Include bandaids, disinfectant, bandages, and a booklet with simple first aid instructions. 

    Fire Extinguisher

    These can cost $20-50, from auto shops such as Supercheap Auto and Autobarn.

    Cloths and rags

    Use these for cleaning unexpected window stains, checking the oil, and wiping up spills.


    Wet-wipes are mainly useful for personal hygiene, such as fingers, if you are eating and drinking on the run.


    Old blankets and rugs can be adapted for many uses, from protecting the seat, to wrapping large or fragile objects to transport.

    Shopping Bags

    You can use bags for shopping, collecting rubbish, or protecting valuables from rain or moisture.

    Street Directory

    If your GPS breaks down, or you don't have phone reception, the hard copy street directory can still help you out.

    Writing materials

    There is nothing quicker than grabbing a small notebook and a pen or pencil for addresses, contact details or other information, especially when there is little time to gather the information.


    A novel, magazine or puzzle book can help pass the time if you are stranded waiting for help to arrive. Your phone might have low battery power or credit, which you need to save for more important needs.
