Transporting fish questions!

Hello, everyone! In a few weeks, I'm going to have to transport my fish home from college for break! I was going to transport them in the cups I bought them in like I've done before, but because it's winter and I live in the midwest, and one can never be completely sure of if the heat is going to work consistently, in a vehicle, I was wondering if maybe I should buy two small thermoses to transport them in. Would this help regulate the the temperature at all? It's a fairly long drive (5-6 hours). I was thinking of putting them in fish bags and then putting them in the thermoses for the trip. Good/bad idea?

Not sure if thats a good idea or not. I would buy some heat packs and put whatever your taking them in inside a small box and stuff some shredded newspaper to take up any unused space. You can order heat packs on line not sure if any of the pet stores would have them but they might you could call and ask. Good luck and have nice trip. I got my heat packs from ebay.

I'm planning on using a spill proof unused tupperware container wrapped in a towel and put into a insulated container like a lunch box or sterile lite box and toss in a hand warmer, but I'm afraid he may get too warm that way... any thoughts?
