Going on a road trip can be a dream come true or a total nightmare, depending on who you do it with. Finding a perfect road trip buddy can be tough, but making sure they possess these qualities will make it much easier.

Driving Abilities

If you’re embarking on a long road trip with a single person by your side, it should be someone who’s a reliable driver. Traveling with non-drivers is not a problem in case of shorter trips with a group of friends, but it always comes in handy if at least two of you can drive.

Money Management

You should always travel with people who are ready to share the expenses without constantly being reminded of it. Discussing money with friends can be tricky, so try to avoid travel companions who aren’t ready to put their money where their mouth is.

Similar Travel Style

Road trips can turn into a total nightmare when you hit the road with people with a different travel style. In order to avoid constant arguments, discuss this with your friends beforehand, and have clear plans and expectations for your trip together.

Say YES to road tripping with your husband! 🙋 ~~~ 🚙 Have you taken a road trip with your best half? If so, what is your most memorable road trip experience? 😉 Luís and I have gone on lots of road trips since we got married. Being a bicultural couple has given us a great opportunity to travel more and switch between two countries. 🇵🇱🇵🇹 Plus, we love traveling together and exploring new places as it helps keep our relationship fun and exciting. 🥰 We've always had tons of fun during our trips and I do believe that traveling as a couple is a great opportunity to fire up the relationship. 💫 ~~~ 🚙 One of our favorite road trips has been driving from Western to Eastern Europe and come back which is approximately 6,600km (4100 miles). For three years in a row, we drove from Portugal to my home town in Poland for our vacation and we liked it so much the first year, we just had do it again. 😊 Currently we don't drive that far but we still love getting in the car and traveling around whenever we feel like we want to explore. 💫💖 . . . . #roadtrip #roadtrips #roadtrippin #roadtripportugal #palmtrees #ig_portugal #amar_portugal #sidewalkerdaily #mytraveldiary #travelcouple #traveltogether #travelcouplelife #travelbloggerlife #travelblogger #travelgrams #travelingpost #portugal_em_fotos #travelingislife #travelcaptures #instatraveler #joyrneysofgirls #roamingwomen #portugallovers #dametravel #sheisnotlost #welivetotravel #americanstyle #prettylittleiiinspo #prettylittletrips #wearetravelgirls
