Route 66

Perhaps the most famous road trip in the world, a Route 66 fly drive can turn your next holiday into the stuff of movie legends. From the windy city of Chicago, famed for its jazz and towering architecture, head west across the great planes of the Midwest. Stop at 50s roadside diners, drive empty roads that disappear into the horizon and discover real Americana in small towns and vibrant cities. Take a side trip to the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas before finishing your adventure in the golden state of California at the iconic Santa Monica Pier. A Route 66 road trip is your gateway to an all American adventure.
