Traveling with a Betta

I leave Friday to drive home for the holidays and it just dawned on me that I have to bring my betta with me, and I don't have the container I used last time (the little one he came in...it cracked).

Any suggestions on how to transport him? I'll be gone a month, or else I'd just leave him with a feeder. I'm splitting up a 1000 mile drive into 3 days and have another tank at home I can put him in while I'm there. Last time I just put him in the container I got him in and wedged it between the front seats while I was driving and brought him inside with me when I stopped. Brought a bottle of water with me and did at least one water change along the way, and he seemed no worse for wear. Any easy suggestions?

Gosh, that's a puzzler. Perhaps a quart mason jar with holes punched in the lid to allow fresh air in?

how about something like this you can place it in a small cooler to keep a steady temp
using a couple of heat packs/hand warmers

+1 ^^^ one of those cheap little "betta tanks" at any fish selling store, has ventilation and semi sturdy, I'd get that, pack him in a small cooler which would keep light out which can reduce stress, and do some water changes on the drive

That's basically what he'll be in when I'm home. I have a large-ish one that i bought last time I was home and had to bring him. He's a little guy, supposedly a baby when I bought him back in the spring. Still decidedly smaller than most of what you see. He's not in a huge tank here tbh. Only 2 gallons...had intentions of getting a larger tank but living on student loans hasn't left room in the budget to upgrade.
