Business trips can mean a lot of time spent behind the wheel. Maximise your business opportunities and travel in comfort and style with these 10 car accessories that make business on the road that little bit easier.

1. Armor All Car Vacuum Cleaner

Travelling between meetings can mean eating on the go. It's not always easy to keep the car nice and clean, but the Armor All 12V Car Vac definitely makes it easier.

Lightweight and compact, simply plug it into your 12-volt socket and hoover away! It even comes with a carefully designed sloped tool, which makes it easier to reach those troublesome areas that seem to attract crumbs.

2. Thule Motion XT XXL Rooftop Cargo

Got a lot to take with you? Don't squish your suits on the backseat to make room for your business products. Instead, check out the spacious rooftop cargo box by Thule.

With dual side opening which allows for easy access, this hardshell roof-rack is sleek in a metallic black finish and aerodynamic. Perfect for carrying all your essentials to those product-sample meetings.

3. Handpresso Auto Hybrid Coffee Maker  

Cut the queues for drive-thru coffee stores and instead make your perfect espresso on the go with the Handpresso Auto.

Plugging into your 12-volt socket, this coffee maker creates your perfect espresso shot in just 2 minutes. Compatible with both Nespresso, ESE pods and ground coffee, all you need is your favourite roast and some cold water for the perfect shot.

4. SUNSBELL Car Kettle Boiler

Not a coffee enthusiast? Prefer tea? Or want to make an instant snack on the go? Why not swap the Handspresso Auto for the SUNSBELL Car Kettle Boiler instead?

Just like the Handspresso, all it requires is cold water and a cigarette lighter. Carefully designed to fit the average cup holder, the kettle comes with a safety lid, and has a 750ml capacity - meaning it can make tea and soup on the go!
