Taking a road trip is a great way to travel to really take in local sceneries, local culture, and explore many miles of touristic spots as well as off the beaten paths. Not only is taking an affordable road trip fun and adventurous, it can also be economically beneficial compared to other ways of travelling.
Additionally, road trips allow for them to be part of the trip themselves instead of just a means of getting from point A to point B. Like flying or taking a train from origin to destination, and skipping the fun adventure in between. Although taking a train can be a fun adventure.
Some countries are a better option to go on a road trip for the budget conscious based on things like car hire fees, gas prices, and local prices. For example, based on car hire and gas, you can take a very affordable road trip in Saudi Arabia where it costs about $32.95 per day. While in Norway a road trip can cost about $134.75 daily.
