There have been so many time where I’ve been in my mom’s car and started rummaging around her glove compartment. “You have aspirin, right?” I always say. I know it’s in there somewhere, which is so important. Having a travel first aid kit in your car can be really necessary. You never know what your passengers — or you — might need while you’re on the go. For that reason, a travel first aid kit is a great thing to have. You can make one for your car and one for your luggage. Wherever you travel, this is necessary.

What To Put In A Travel First Aid Kit

Prescription medicine: 
If you have any prescription medications, be sure to keep your medicine in your travel first aid kit. I wouldn’t suggest leaving your prescriptions in the car because the heat could affect the efficacy (and I’m not a doctor, so ask yours for sure). You might want to make sure you are always traveling with your prescription bottles, just in case someone ever asks you for proof of what you are carrying and why.

Pain killers: 
This is what I’m always looking for. I get headaches often and take aspirin to get rid of them quite a bit. To be honest, I just took an aspirin in the middle of writing this post. So always have pain killers for any aches and pains or headaches — especially if I’m ever traveling with you.

Adhesive bandages:
I have a blister on my foot that just popped. Ouch. I walk a lot, so my poor feet are always getting banged up. I constantly keep adhesive bandages in my wallet and in my purse, just in case. So if you’re traveling, definitely pack a few. Different sizes and types are are good idea too. 

Motion sickness tabs:
I remember the first time I was traveling in Japan, I got motion sickness so bad. I never got it before then, but it was awful. Now, if I text in the car, I don’t feel so great. So having some sort of motion sickness tabs just in case is a great idea.

Antacids:
Just in case those motion sickness tabs don’t work, or the reason for your passenger’s upset stomach isn’t the movement of the car, antacids are good to keep. Actually, I keep them in my purse at all times. There have been quite a few times when I’ve pulled them out when someone was feeling nauseous, so now I just keep them in there.

Anti-itch cream:
This time of year, mosquitoes are all over the place. Every time we go out, we come back with fresh bites. It’s awful — and itchy. I always keep anti-itch cream accessible in our home, and it’s a great thing to have in your travel pack as well.

Allergy medicine:
You never know if you’ll be traveling and stumble upon the thing that sets off your allergies. Maybe it’s dust or pollen or pineapples. Whatever it is, make sure you are prepared with allergy medicine. If your allergies are really bad and you usually have an epipen handy, maybe consider one for your travel first aid kit (of course, be sure to talk to a doctor about this first).

Alcohol swabs:
My grandma needed alcohol swabs for her insulin shots, so I grew up with those always being around. They’re great to keep in your travel first aid kit in a pinch. You can use them to clean scrapes or even just wash your hands if you can’t find any hand wipes.

Tissues:
We always have napkins in our glove compartment in case we spill or something needs to be cleaned, but those are too rough if you have to blow your nose. So a small pack of travel tissues is a perfect thing to keep in your travel first aid kit.

What else would you put in your travel first aid kit? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
