What Should I Pack?

Back to Drive Trips

The last thing you want to do is over pack, since you'll likely have to load and unload your vehicle several times during your trip, adding souvenirs along the way.

Essential items include comfortable shoes, mix-and-match outfits, sunglasses and a camera with plenty of batteries and film or digital memory cards. Also, consider the climate for the region you are visiting and pack accordingly.

If you're staying at a resort, check to see if there is a dress code or ask your AAA Travel professional for recommendations.

If you plan activities such as golf or snorkeling, consider renting gear at your destination instead of taking up valuable trunk space.
