Wind blowing through your hair, tank full of petrol, car in third gear…

There is no better way to celebrate the freedom of a road trip than with music.

Here’s a list of 7 anthems put together by our team of road trip veterans:

- Cars Gary Numan. When the lyrics go like “Here in my car / I feel safest of all / I can lock all my doors / It’s the only way to live” you’ll have no choice but to have this track up loud.

- Mustang Sally – Mack Rice. Everyone’s favourite, a must for any convertible rental.

- American Pie Don McLean. Driving on route 66 with your US car rental?* This song is for you.

- Little Deuce Coup by the Beach Boys. Perfect for an easier pace.

- Highway To Hell – AC/DC. An Aussie classic.

- Daddy’s Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car – U2. You’ve purchased travel insurance with your car rental, right?

- Ride Wit Me – Nelly. A more modern take on the car trip anthem. WARNING: you may be dancing in your seat to this one.
