Hit The Road: Our Favourite Road Trips

""It's not the destination, it's the journey"" - said every cheesy, road to redemption reality show presenter ever. But they might just be on to something, you know. When the journey involves switch-back turns through epic mountains, cruising along sweeping coastlines or trundling through rolling hills surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, it all sounds rather marvellous really. Then there's the accommodation; an Original Travel road trip will involve the very best luxury pit-stops available, from chic boutiques to opulent resorts, depending on your requirements. So if you're thinking about hitting the road and exploring some of the world's most epic scenery and culture, let us steer you (sorry) in the direction of a few of our favourites Road Trip Holidays...
