Taking a road trip can be a great way to experience a country from the ground. You can stop off when and where you like and still admire all the scenery in between. Road trips can be fast-paced or slow and meandering depending on your needs and are a perfect for groups who want to travel as cheaply and as effectively as possible.

Italy – Amalfi Coast

Italy travel is diverse and fascinating and provides the ideal backdrop for a road trip. The Amalfi Coast is considered to be the country’s most beautiful stretch of coastline, boasting ragged clifftops, quirky hillside villages, and spectacular views across rolling green mountains and sparkling turquoise waters. UNESCO has even deemed the area to be “an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, with exceptional cultural and natural scenic values,” and awarded it a place on the World Heritage list.

America – Route 66 and Beyond

America is the king of road trips, with hundreds of people setting out on the famous Route 66 every year. Home to such a diverse range of landscapes and stunning scenery, it’s no wonder that the US roads are highly coveted by keen road trippers. But it’s not just the well-known route that’s open for adventure; all over the country lie perfect winding roads that snake amongst breathtaking surroundings. Try Texas with its unique landscape, or Pennsylvania which is home to a rich history.

United Kingdom – Everywhere

Being a small island, it is easy to take a short road trip around the UK which is diverse in scenery from the rugged coasts in Cornwall to the beautiful Scottish Highlands. Stop off in all the major hotspots as well as experience the much-loved British countryside and enjoy a hearty pub dinner. Visit the South East where you can find cheap hotels in Brighton and browse the shops in the Laines, before learning to surf in the South West.

New Zealand – North Island

New Zealand is renowned for its earthy, rugged landscapes that were made famous by Lord of the Rings. The vast and diverse scenery offer the ideal setting for your road tripping adventure and the mix of Polynesian and European heritage provide it with fascinating culture and history for you to explore.

Australia – East Coast

Like America, Australia is also a major hotspot for road trip enthusiasts, particularly its warm, sun baked East Coast. You can relax on the famous beaches in between driving through spectacular scenery and exploring the vibrant cities that line the coast, each offering their own selection of delicious restaurants, cultural experiences, and buzzing nightlife.
