Share Article

Summer car travel season is just around the corner. Here are tips on how to organize any vehicle for a relaxing, efficient and safer drive vacation.

Whether at home or driving, good storage and organization saves time, effort and trouble.

Yes, it’s that time of year again. Spring has sprung, wanderlust is kicking in and the open road beckons with the promise of freedom and adventure. 45% of Americans take summer vacations every year, averaging 284 miles one way according to Statistic Brain. And 91% of those trips are taken in personal vehicles as opposed to buses, trains or planes – in 2017, 39% of all leisure travel included a road trip.

Why? There are a number of reasons according to MMGY Global’s Portrait of American Travelers research. Nostalgia certainly plays a part, but there are practical reasons as well, specific ones cited being the ability to stop along the way and to pack as much and whatever the traveler wants to bring along, to include a beloved pet.

With leisure car travel on the rise, what to pack and how to organize the road trip vehicle is even more important. Here are a few clever containers and organizing tips to help along the way.

Curbing back seat boredom is not an easy thing to do on day-long drives.
The High Road Kid's Back Seat Cooler & Play Station is the perfect back seat organizer to keep kids hydrated, snacked and entertained, while giving two passengers their own personal storage compartments.

Hands-free use of a cell phone while driving is important for safety as well as convenience. The High Road AirFlow™ Dashboard Phone Holder keeps road trip navigation screens within easy view without blocking the air vents.

Have a lot to pack with limited cargo space? The High Road ZipFit™ Cargo Seat Back Organizer adds extra storage on the seatback without taking up precious cargo floor space.

And for long drives, a good clean-up station is essential, especially one with a trash bin and pockets for tissues, wipes and more. The High Road StashAway™ Seat Back Organizer & Trash Station has a large capacity bin and extra storage pockets, and even has a unique lid to keep trash, liquids and odors contained, even when filling.

And don’t forget the family pet – they need a place to stash food, treats, pick-up waste bags, toys and water. The High Road Doggie Seatback Organizer is just the ticket, and can be hung from a front or back seat headrest.

Whether at home or driving, good storage and organization saves us time and trouble, and with road trip season just around the corner High Road is here to help with a wide range of car organizers and containers to keep kids happy and clutter under control while on-the-go.
