How to create the perfect road trip for you and your other half

The perfect road trip involves a sing-a-long in the car, a detour down a country road, and a bag of crisps.

A study of 2,000 drivers has revealed the key components required to create the perfect road trip from the vehicle and passengers down to the destination. So if you and your other half are looking to spend some quality time together, make sure you include these in your travel plans. 

The Lake District, Land’s End in Cornwall and Snake Pass in the Peak District are among the most popular scenic destinations, followed by The Cotswolds and Snowdonia in Wales.

The survey also revealed one in five drivers consider it a perfect road trip if they rack up more than 1,000 miles, while three in 10 would like to take to the open road for more than a week.

It's worth noting, that it's rarely plain sailing once you hit the tarmac, with 56 per cent of road trippers expecting to have at least one heated discussion on their trip.

These high-speed fall-outs are most likely to be caused by disagreements over which route to take or criticism from backseat drivers

When hitting the road with a trusted companion, half think it is vital that the people in the car have good taste in music - twenty-one per cent have had harsh words regarding the choice of tunes for their trip.

If Brits had the opportunity to pick their perfect road trip ride, a Ford Mustang, Audi A3 or Land Rover Defender would be at the top of their wish list.
