Travel Extras for When You Take to the Road in Your Car

Travel Extras for When You Take to the Road in Your Car

Traveling through Switzerland is a dream come true for many tourists, and one of the best ways to see as much of the countryside as possible is to travel by automobile.  If you’re using a car to tour around the country, you’ll want to keep your camera at the ready, and make sure that tanks is full of gas before leaving.  But other preparations aren’t always thought of in advanced, so consider some of these items:  both helpful add-ons and fun diversions.

Bike Rack
When you’re traveling through such beautiful open countryside, you won’t want to spend every waking second stuck inside your car behind those windows.  To get out in the open air and cover as much ground as possible in a short time, you can you use a bicycle. 

Unfortunately, bicycles are big and bulky, and even fitting one in a common compact car on your travels while you’re also bringing along suitcases and other luggage would be a nightmare.  Using a bike rack, you can store all the bicycles needed for you and your fellow travelers, freeing up interior space for more comfortable travel in less close quarters.

Train Horn
Driving around the countryside of Switzerland may be a dream for adults, but it can be the most boring experience ever for younger children who do not take pleasure from long road trips.  A train horn is an aftermarket device ripe with novelty value.  It isn’t a replacement for the car’s own horn, but rather a sound effects machine used to play tricks on others. 

One blast of that authentic-sounding train horn add-on and you’ll have people turning their heads at parking lots and on pedestrian pathways.  Just be sure not to use one while actually driving, or near the actual road, as that can be tremendously dangerous and startling to other drivers.

First Aid Kit
A first aid kit can be a real lifesaver for travelers on the road, especially if there are many miles or kilometers separating towns and other settlements.  If someone cuts himself and needs some quick and easy care, a first aid kit can help, saving you the expense of the hospital as well as the amount of time generally spent there.  Sure, if someone is seriously hurt, the hospital should be the priority, but for basics cuts, a first aid kit should work.
