Without wanting to sound like the start of an episode of Casualty, accidents can happen at any moment. From tripping over something to clonking the top of your head on your car's bonnet, most are minor and can be treated at home with some basic medical equipment.
A first aid kit handily packages all this medical equipment together in a compact and portable way for when such emergencies happen. One of these can prove invaluable in your car for when such accidents do occur. Hopefully, you won't be needing one any time soon but here are our top first aid kits for your car.
Smaller cars will offer less storage space meaning a bigger first aid kit can easily eat into your boot, especially if you have other equipment in there like a battery booster.
How many people do you carry around with you?
Larger families will undoubtedly need a bigger first aid kit with multiple copies of each bit of kit. A single triangular bandage may be fine for a single person, but if more people need one then it can become an issue.
What should a first aid kit contain?
The most bare-bones first aid kit should still come with an assortment of plasters, some antiseptic wipes and a couple of bandages which should be enough to deal with most cuts and scrapes. Larger kits will undoubtedly carry more stuff including medical scissors, foil blankets and gloves that are a bit more extreme but will become invaluable if needed.
