Planning can go a long way in making you reach your destination safely

Vehicle check up
Go to a professional mechanic or car dealer. Never take short cuts when rectifying car problems. Ask your mechanic to change the brake fluid, working conditions of the lights ad top up on the engine oil, power steering and transmission fluids not to forget the windshield washer. Remember to check the wheels and alignment.
Rescue Service
It is important to become a member of a car rescue service. Their services will come a long way in getting you in tow between one town and the next rather than leave you stranded.
Fill up: Ensure your fuel gauge is working and make sure you fill up your tank before you leave 
Spare tyre: Have your spare tyre checked thoroughly during your garage visit
Reflective triangles: It’s recommended that every vehicle must have a reflective triangle. These should be placed at least 50m away from your stationary car- at the front and at the back to alert on coming vehicles to slow down.
Fire extinguisher: This is very important to have one especially in the event you happen to get an engine fire or someone else happens to have a fire accident on the road you may end up being their life saver.
Tool kit: In this kit should have a complete set for tyre change in the event you get a flat tyre, your tool kit should also include jumper cables, a tow rope and spare light bulbs
First aid kit: Have a fully stocked first aid kit with anti diarrhea, fever tablets, pain killers and bandages 
Maps and GPS: If you are going to a new destination, a map will come in handy and will be a very important companion during your trip. Find the most current and relevant maps at your local bookshops.
For those who are not technically challenged, there are a couple of global positioning devices that will aid you in finding your way. 
Spades and Shovels: These come in handy if your car gets stuck in mud or in sand.
Keep extra engine oil in the boot
Have a torch in hand, it helps you to see whats wrong with your car and can be used to warn other drivers or attract attention if in trouble
Water: keeps you hydrated and help the radiator cool down when it overheats.
Blankets to keep you warm if you are travelling to a cold area or during the cold season. Blankets also help when you want to check under your car
Never leave home without your mobile phone
