Things You’ll Need for Your Summer Road Trip

Going on road trips is one of the best ways you can get in and around the Philippines in summer. Giving you total control of your time, pace, and destination, it’s a very liberating and classy way to travel. Still, if you want to fully enjoy your summer adventures on the road, best make sure you pack everything you’ll need for your journey. Below are just a few of them.

License and Registration

Obviously, you can’t forget any of these even if you’re driving a pre-owned car. Driving without a license is illegal, and it will incur a hefty fine should you get caught the same goes with leaving your vehicle’s registration papers behind during road trips. So before you start on your summer journey, best have your license and registration close at hand.

Spare Tire

You also need to make sure that your car’s spare tire is safely tucked in your ride before embarking on your next summer getaway. Chances are, one of your car’s tires might not last long enough to get you to and from your destination. So on the off chance that one of them does bail on you, at least there’s a spare tire ready to replace it.


Summer in the Philippines can get unpleasantly hot. Sure, your car’s air-conditioning system would help lessen the heat, but it wouldn’t be able to block of the sun’s bright and piercing rays. So whether you own a new or secondhand car, it’s best to bring a good sunshade on your next adventure.

Baby Wipes

Yes, it’s weird to include baby wipes on this list, but take our word for it when we say you need it on your summer road trip. Not only can it help you cool down while traveling, but it can also serve as an alternative toilet paper in case you run out of tissue.


Speaking of toilet paper! Don’t forget to bring lots of toiletries on your summer trip. This not only includes toilet paper, but also sunscreens, hand sanitizers, deodorants, small towels, and what-not. These may come in handy in case you need to freshen up and the restrooms you pass by don’t have any toiletries at hand.


Even if you’re comfortable wearing shoes during prolonged road trips, your feet would eventually chaff under it due to the summer climate. So to rest your feet and help it unwind and cool down a bit, best bring your wonderful flip-flops on your escapade.
