'It’s not the destination, it’s the journey' – so said every cheesy, road-to-redemption reality show presenter ever. But they might just be on to something, you know. When that journey involves switch-back turns through epic mountains, cruising along sweeping coastlines or trundling through rolling hills surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, road trips really are rather marvellous. Even better, an iconic road trip holiday is enough to justify a whole journey, and our famous road trips can take you across a whole country, or even a continent. The freedom of the road can evoke nostalgia or even be the stuff of legend:
that ribbon of asphalt stretching into infinity, crossing vast rugged landscapes, and following intricate coastlines. For road trip rookies, the US is a great place to start (maybe driving a classic Ford Mustang?), with a playlist to match the views. There’s the epic Route 66, Highway One from San Francisco to Los Angeles, or the Blues Highway from Chicago to New Orleans. Closer to home, Europe is also road trip central, with northern Norway and Iceland two classics of the genre. So what are you waiting for? Put your foot to the floor on an Original Travel road trip.

This is the first time we went on a trip with Original Travel,
a specialist advisor who listens to our expectations, and really
the feeling of being pampered from departure to arrival.
The concierge service is so efficient that we quickly become addicted.
Because while road trips are all about the freedom to explore, you still want someone to organise the bits in between. That's where we come in. Our Concierge service is the best in the business, and really comes into its own on a road trip where your plans might change on a whim. Our Concierges are there to make alternative plans, recommend en route restaurants for lunch and generally oil the wheels of the trip. Then there's the accommodation; an Original Travel road trip will involve the very best pit stops available, from chic boutiques to opulent resorts, depending on your requirements. And that's before we've even mentioned the boring logistics - from meticulously planning your route and hotels to organising car hire and navigational gear, so all you need to do is create your ultimate road trip playlist (although we can make some great suggestions for that too, with our destination specific Spotify and Deezer playlists), sit back and enjoy the ride.
So if you're thinking about hitting the road and exploring some of the world's most epic scenery and culture, the Original Travel team can create you a road trip to remember.
