A road trip with the family is an excellent way to explore a destination and inject a little adventure into your holiday while retaining all the flexibility you need when travelling with children. Being in a vehicle allows you to see the countryside and explore places you might otherwise visit – it’s in these unexpected places that adventure lies.

Classic destinations for a family self-drive holiday include the Canadian Rockies or California. In fact the USA is a great destination for a road trip, with options throughout the country, from the deserts of Arizona and Utah to the landscapes of New England and beaches of Florida.

Elsewhere, a family road trip is an ideal way to see a safari destination such as South Africa or to explore a country as varied and exciting as Namibia. Distances in Australia and New Zealand can be daunting but our team of specialists can advise you on route choices and ways to ensure you see a lot without becoming trapped in the car.

Talk to them about hitting the road and discover how every day can be different. Around the next bend is a new landscape, a new town, new attractions and new places to stay, which is exciting for both children and parents alike.
