Things to remember...

Whether it’s your first road trip or you’re a seasoned traveler, every journey behind the wheel and across the state (or country!) requires good music. You can’t rely on the radio for such important matters.

Thanks to Spotify, you can take your music wherever your travels take you. We’ve been covering the top songs of each decade and compiling them into road trip playlists you can access anywhere, anytime.

Get in the groove with our 70’s playlist featuring some of the most iconic sing-along hits of the time including the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen, “Ziggy Stardust” by David Bowie, and so many more.

Before you go, make sore you check out your car insurance coverage. Do you have roadside assistance? Emergency medical coverage?

Road trips require special coverage to make sure you’re covered across state lines and in any of the events that may occur while you’re traveling. Enter your zip code on our site to compare free quotes before your next trip!
