On a self drive holiday, you’ll have the freedom to decide what you want to do and when. This is sure to be the journey of a lifetime.

The open road stretching out ahead of you, crumpled map in hand, music playing and ever-changing landscapes filling your window. The humble road trip is experiencing a renaissance of sorts in this new era of COVID-safe travel. Not only does it give us the chance to get off the beaten path and explore like a local, it’s also one of the safest ways to travel.

With incredibly luxurious motorhomes now available on the market, road trips are no longer reserved for budget-conscious students. Increasingly families and couples are opting to explore at a slower pace, from the comfort of their own home on wheels.

Are you ready for a new adventure? Let our travel experts will put together a safe and worry-free trip, so all you need to do is pick up the keys and hit the road.

Plan a socially distant coronavirus-safe road trip

While we are still living with COVID-19, many people are wondering if it’s safe to travel. We believe that by taking the right precautions, listening to official advice and following safety procedures, travel can and should continue. But of course, certain modes of travel and destinations are inherantly safer than others.

Hitting the road in your own motorhome is one of the best ways to explore while limiting exposure. The sheer size and diversity of the US make it the ultimate road trip destination.

Follow international travel rules ahead of your flight to ensure you arrive stress-free and healthy. But once you’ve touched down, picking up the keys to a luxury motorhome enables you to hit the open road while maintaining social distancing in your very own home on wheels- complete with bed, kitchen and bathroom.

We follow the official advice of the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), supplemented with information from the World Health Organization (WHO). We are using this information to navigate the best and safest way for you to explore and feel free again.

The best COVID-Safe US Road Trips

So, there’s just one question left: Where to go?

Route 66

No list of classic USA road trips would be complete without Route 66. Dubbed The Mother Road, this iconic highway was the primary route for those who migrated west from Chicago’s Rust Belt to sunny California. Today, its spirit lives on as thousands of people travel its length, reliving the days of kitschy Americana.
