    Default Items to drive to Spain

    We're driving to Spain on Wednesday, so am thinking about taking a few items in addition to the mandatory stuff. My list consists of:

    1/ rachet and small selection of sockets (10,13mm etc..)
    2/ few torx bits
    3/ tyre inflator
    4/ warning triangle
    5/ fire extinguisher
    6/ first aid kit
    7/ spare bulbs
    8/ light deflector things
    9/ visi vest

    If anyone can think of anything then please feel free to suggest

    If you need to wear glasses when driving ( and I don't mean non-prescription sunglasses) then in Spain you are required to carry a spare pair, in case you break the ones you are wearing.

    Although I normally wear varifocals I carry a spare pair of tinted distance glasses myself just in case ( it is my distance vision which requires me to wear glasses when driving - I would not like to drive without my glasses especially at night or on motorways).
