While the USA is home to some of the most famous routes in the world, only a modest number of Irish have actually undertaken an all-American road trip.
A recent survey by American Holidays showed that only 12% of their customers have taken a USA road trip.
Considering how accessible the United States are to Ireland, with more direct flights than ever to cities across the USA, and how iconic some of the road trip routes, such as the Pacific Coast Highway and Route 66, there has never been a better time to take the ultimate road trip.
To inspire Irish travellers to undertake a road trip for their next adventure, American Holidays have put together these tips for planning the ultimate road trip experience.
Get inspired – If you can’t decide which route you want to take, give the new Road Trip Recommender tool from American Holidays a test drive. Unique to American Holidays, this tool gives you tips from the already existing itineraries worked up by the experts or helps you put together your own tailor made trip.
Plot your route – The last thing you want is to get to the end of your route and realise that you missed something amazing along the way. Talk to the experts beforehand to make sure you have a comprehensive list of what to see en route.
Don’t forget your drivers license – Try to have more than one qualified driver on board. There is so much to see along the routes with such stunning scenery that it’s only fair – not to mention safer – to share the driving and allow everyone equal time to take it all in.
Why not start planning your own Route 66 adventure today? The newly launched Road Trip Recommender tool – unique to American Holidays – lets you plan the perfect road trip itinerary to suit you.
