5 Must-Have Car Accessories

Back to all blogs

When heading out, most of us have the habit of checking if we have remembered to carry along all the essentials like phone, car keys, and wallet before locking the main door. Today, this habit has extended to the car as well, for before starting the car, we all check if the car essentials and accessories are in place. Your car is no longer just a vehicle that takes you from one place to another, and these car accessories make sure that the very experience of the commute-be it a road trip or just the seemingly uneventful drive to work- becomes a lot more pleasant.

Phone Mount

The phone has come a long way and is no longer used for just making calls. We use maps for directions and to estimate traffic, use it on Bluetooth for quick hands-free calls while waiting for the signal, and connect to our playlist to make sure the day starts on a high. A phone mount not only makes sure that you can achieve all this smoothly without any distractions but also holds your phone in place so that you don’t have to worry about it sliding off the seat when taking turns or applying break.

USB Charger

As we increase the number of gadgets and devices we carry around, especially during long road trips, a USB charger becomes a car-must-have accessory. It makes sure that you don’t have to worry about the battery running low on your devices, and there are also chargers that allow you to charge two or more devices at the same time.

Tool Kit

It is always advisable to have a toolkit placed in your car at all times. Having a toolkit makes sure that you don’t have to go looking for a mechanic for minor issues like loose bolts or parts. The tool kit also comes in handy in case you need minor fixes in furniture or other types of equipment at home too.

Cleaning Cloth/Duster

You may have had your car cleaned before taking it out, but driving within the city often leads to it gathering dust and dirt. Hence, having a soft duster or cleaning cloth ensures that you can give it a quick dust down. It becomes even more essential to have a cleaning cloth in the car if you have young kids, making accidental spills of milkshakes or juices and crumbs of snacks common in the back seat.

Air Freshener

We all have our preferences when it comes to fragrances. While some may prefer citrus while others may want nothing but floral scents, but one thing we can all agree on is that bad odour is the last thing we want to be greeted by as soon as we get into our cars.

With a range of fragrance option that includes tangy orange, cool blue that reminds you of the sea, fresh floral scents of rose and lavender, and the popular musk, Godrej’s aer Twist car perfumes make sure there is just the right scent for everyone!

Having these accessories ensures that your car is more organised, and you can concentrate on the driving with minimal distractions, making it more enjoyable.
