Accessories are now an integral part of automobiles and provide various facilities which enhance your driving experience and comfort. Whether you plan to buy a new car or a used rental car, you should be aware of the important accessories to install in your car right away. A feature rich car will not only make your experience smooth and comfortable but will also give you a better control and a safer drive. Let us find out the accessories which are absolutely indispensable to have in your vehicle:

1. Satellite Navigation: Driving in a new place without directions is never a good idea, and clunky maps have aged long ago. Satellite navigation or satnav provides you the layout of your surroundings as well the directions to your destination. In the era of Google Maps, satnavs are an indispensable addition to your car. No longer ridiculously expensive, you have a wide variety of options to choose from. It is better to invest once in a good satnav than to fumble around with your smartphone navigation every time you drive.

2. Dash Camera: A dash cam is a small digital video camera that mounts to the dashboard and records the driver’s journey whenever the car is turned on and moving. However, it’s not just a cool gadget to record your travelogues. It can be a crucial tool for ensuring safety on the road, and in case of an accident, a valuable evidence for your proper conduct against illegal activity. For a regular traveller on busy roads, it is a must-own product, which can save you a lot of financial worries.

3. Jump Starter Kit: Driving cross-country and the battery dying on you in the mountains? A jump starter kit will save you. There's no guarantee that someone will be around to give you jump when you need it, which is why it's wise to always keep a jump starter kit in your vehicle. A backup power source, it’s a must-have for seasoned travellers.

4. In-car charger: In today’s connected world, it’s highly unlikely that you travel anywhere without your smartphone and other gadgets of choice. A multi-port in-car charger protects you from undesirable consequences of your smartphone dying in the middle of a journey.

5. De-icer and ice-scraper: Driving in winters can be a safety risk if you do not de-ice your windscreen well. With laws and regulations for this in effect, a de-icer should never be missing from your car. De-icer liquid and ice scraper are the quickest and easiest options to counter winter blindness.
