Long road trips have their own charm and are more fun with friends.

In such cases, a portable tyre inflator pump can be very handy and get the job done in minutes. You can invest a bit more and even get a digital inflator pump now .
Most car owners will agree that the boot space can become a mess if not regularly organized. We practically use the boot as a store room of the car and keep dumping all kinds of stuff in it which we do not want inside the car. This leads too a lot of small stuff being gathered on the boot bed, creating problems while loading some big suitcases. However, a boot organizer can be of great help and will keep all your stuff together, in one place.
Interior Vacuum Cleaner
A handheld interior vacuum cleaner can do wonders to your car’s interiors. These low power cleaners do a wonderful job of picking up all the dirt, dust and other bits from the interiors and save you from a lot of manual hand work. Many people use normal high powered vacuum cleaners to clean the interiors, which is not advisable. The normal home cleaners are quite high powered and until there is a ultra low power mode on it, it can damaged some of the soft elements of the interiors. Handheld vacuum cleaners are especially useful if you ride with a pet often.
Air humidifier and refresher
This is a cheap and effective alternative to make your vehicle feel fresh and cozy everytime you step in. It can be attached to the power socket in the car easily to function. It functions automatically and you can choose any sort of perfume/smell you would like your vehicle to be filled with.

If you are a coffee/tea lover, this one will definitely suit you. This coffee mug can be placed in the cubbyholes of your car easily and comes with heat function. Now we often buy ourselves a hot cuppa of coffee but it gets cold while we are driving. This cup solves thatproblem and keeps your drink warm/hot and ready to be enjoyed whenever you get time from the traffic woes.
Rear LED multi function strip
While we have already told you that mood lightening can elevate your car’s interiors at an affordable rate, these external LED strips can make your car stand out while adding functionality too. These can be installed under the boot lid and they provide multiple illumination modes. The LED strips comes programmed for different functions such as left/right indicators, brake, accelerate and random colorful lightening. Quite a cheap accessory to make your car stand out at night.
Tyre Pressure Monitor Valve
We all have faced the issue of low air pressure on tyres. However, many times we get to know this only after driving the car for some miles, which often results into us not finding a air pump as the car is already far from populated areas. However, having one of these air pressure monitor valves greatly reduces such chances as you will always know the air pressure even before you set to drive. When fitted, its green labeling means the pressure is good, yellow means its less than average while red means its time to visit the air pump immediately.
Car Seat organizer
With all the gadgets and other things around now, keeping your car tidy can be a tedious task. This is especially the case when many people are travelling on your car. Getting a seat organizer can be the best thing to do if multiple people often ride in your car. The organizer will make sure that there is no clutter inside the car and the interiors remain tidy. Moreover, it saves you the pain to look in the car searching for something that got dropped and is now hard to find. One can simply dislodge all such small things and gadgets etc into the organizer itself.
Turbo water hose
Cleaning your car can be a pain sometimes, especially after a drive through unpaved roads. Regular washing by water using a pipe/hose is not very effective and taking your vehicle for a car wash every other day isn’t very economical as well. However, you can get a Turbo water hose for quite cheap and use it to clean your car much more effectively. It comes with multiple throw modes and a separate canister for a soap wash.
