Check out these seven road trip essentials from Amazon before your next journey. From audio books and car seat organizers to food trays and coolers, you’ll arrive at your destination before anyone can say, “Are we there yet?”

One thing about long road trips is that, after a while, the air in the car tends to get a little stale. If you have the air conditioner running, it can become dry too. In between opening a window, you can infuse the air with the calming scent of lavender or re-energizing orange essential oils. This diffuser and humidifier fit perfectly into a cupholder for your convenience.

4. SURDOCA Car Seat Organizer, 2-Pack, $14.99 (Orig. $23.99)
