These road trip questions for couples come with a twist! They’re all about road tripsone’s you’ve taken, one’s you’d love to go on, and more.

I love traveling as much as the next person. There’s something super fun about exploring uncharted territory, having new experiences, and making memories you can share with your loved one for years to come.

I especially love road trips (even more so since we bought an RV).

Working out what to wear, what to eat, what to listen to – the list goes on and helps build the anticipation that sits behind every good journey.

Creating good conversation is also a goal of mine during road trips.

Now, I have over 500 questions for couples including conversation starters and categories like never have I ever questions and favorite things questions that are super fun and more than fit for purpose for long car journeys.

However, in honor of the road trip, I decided I would create my own unique list specifically for the goal of increasing the quality of your next car conversation.

Here’s 50 questions for a road trip – but wait.

These questions for road trips are all about road trips. (Not road trip trivia like how many states does Route 66 cross – the answer is 8 by the way – but your loved one’s experience of road trips past and road trips planned for future. Just in case you were worried).

I know – how many road trip questions actually get meta? The answer is surprisingly few.

And when you ask and answer them, I’m not thinking about a one or two hour drive to visit your mom. I’m thinking about a real road trip – the kind you need to prepare for.

Chances are even if you’ve been with your partner a while, you haven’t had this kind of in-depth car conversation.

Without further ado, here are my road trip questions about road trips.
