Not your ordinary Father’s Day gift idea

Give your dad the gift of time by taking him on a fabulous family road trip.

It can be so difficult to find a gift that adequately represents the love we have for our dads, and the appreciation we have for the many things they do for us. But one thing all dads cherish is time with their family, so this Father’s Day, why not organise a road trip he won’t forget?

Plan the perfect day

Firstly, decide on a destination, then think of places to see and things to do together along the way. It doesn’t need to be somewhere new or remote, just a place you’re confident Dad will enjoy that has a couple of fun places to stop en route.

Climbing to new heights.

Remember the time you spend together getting there is just as important as arriving – it’s all about the journey. Be sure not to leave food and drink out of the equation!

Once you’ve locked in the plan, load the coordinates into the Navman and you’re good to go.

The ultimate road trip checklist

Good company

Keep it to just you and your dad if you need some one-on-one time, or open the invite to the family – it’s generally the more the merrier!

The perfect playlist

Set the mood with suitable sounds for a road trip. Make sure you’ve got the right mix of genres to keep everyone happy.


Pack the car with snacks and schedule in a stop at a favourite eatery along the way.
