Sumary of The UK’s top road trips:
- Although the North Coast 500 was the runaway leader for staycation road trips, the iconic Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway emerged as the most coveted road trip hotspots stateside.
- Many UK adults are even weighing up making the typically ‘gas guzzling’ excursions more sustainable, as more than one in three would consider taking a road trip in an electric vehicle.
- Continental Tyres, which commissioned the research, is sponsoring the new motorsport series Extreme-E, which is bringing off-road electric racing to some of the most remote corners of the planet to highlight the climate change challenges faced by different ecosystems.
- When on the road, 68 per cent are comfortable checking their tyre pressure, and a few of those polled via OnePoll believe they could change their tyre if necessary.
