Using rental cars for business travel is fun, and nothing says excitement like a beige Chevy Malibu with zero options. So, “Bring your gadgets,” my dear Watson! I’m pretty sure that with enough gadget-dazzle you can take that ‘Bu up a notch or two.
Top Rental Car Gadgets [read more...]
1. PowerLine PowerCup Mobile Inverter
With 200 watts to power those gadgets, this product is an absolute necessity. It comes with two A/C, 1 USB port and is designed like a cup, so it will easily fit snuggly into any cup holder.
2. Grid-It Visor Organizer
When you are swerving down the road at 70 mph, digging around in your bag for anything is not recommended. I am a big fan of Grid-It products and this one is perfect for road trips.
3. Jawbone Icon
I have used my Icon for about a year and love it. I’ve been on calls in noisy hotel lobbies and even in the home office with children screaming in the background, and the call quality always amazes me
4. Waze App
There are tons (TONS!) of map apps out there. I think I have at least 5 on my phone right now. This one has two features that make it stand out, a sweet social feed to complement the Google Maps layer and a points system for driving over fun things in your route like muffins. This app adds at least 20 points of fun to your trip
5. Koolatron 12V Travel Cooler
Sure, space is always limited, but sometimes you just need to keep those drinks and road sandwiches cold. This thermoelectric cooler from Koolatron is the lightest one I have seen. At only 7 pounds, this little guy should fit into any piece of luggage, and is powerful enough to nearly freeze things .
Good luck on your travels! If you have any advice on rental cars or business road trips, please share your comments.
