Although, mostly useless in day to day life, compilation CD’s managed to capture the perfect selection of songs to represent a season or mood and it was this attribute that made them the perfect road trip companion. Alas, such CD’s are becoming hard to find, meaning the responsibility of programming tracks for your next road trip falls to you and with it, the power to create the greatest playlist ever!

With age group, length of the trip and mood to consider, this task is not always an easy one. So, after much thought, collaboration sessions and hours of debating, the team at Alpha Car Hire has finally put together a list the best road trip songs to kick start your next playlist!

  1. The Beetles – Drive My Car
  2. AC/DC – Highway to Hell
  3. Willson Picket – Mustang Sally
  4. Foghat – Slow Ride
  5. Meatloaf – Bat Out of Hell
  6. Johnny Cash – I’ve Been Everywhere
  7. Percy Mayfield – Hit the Road, Jack
