Travel Overview Planner

The Travel Overview page allows you to break down your road trip or holiday into different destinations with arrival and departure dates, accommodation details and daily activities. It also comes with a continuation sheet. 

Daily, Weekly, Monthly and Yearly Planner Pages

We’ve accounted for all lengths of trips with a daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly planner page. Whether you’re going on a road trip, planning a week’s holiday or setting off on a year-long adventure, this printable travel planner will help keep all those useful bits of information all in one place.

You can use the planner pages to keep track of what you need to do while planning your trip and also as an itinerary when on your trip. Depending on the season and destination, you may need to book accommodation up to a year in advance. When we spent Christmas skiing in Bettmeralp, in Switzerland, it was so popular that families booked accommodation up to 18 months in advance!

The Daily Itinerary page includes space for things to see, notes and meals. The meal section can be used for planned meals, restaurants to try or types of foods to sample. If you are on a road trip in Brittany, make sure you try Breton Cake – a buttery, melt in your mouth cake come shortbread not to be missed:)

Meal Planner page

Travelling on a budget? Then this meal planner is handy – especially if you are on a motorhome, RV or campervan road trip.  Planning your meals means you can organise your shopping list which equals less waste and more money saved.

Campsite Details Page

Having travelled Europe for a year in a motorhome, and buying a 4 x4 with a tent on top to overland Africa, we know a thing or two about the details that are handy to know for campsites on a road trip.

The Campsite Details page includes spaces for campsite information such as price, whether you’ve booked it, check-in and out times, facilities, address and contact details.

Travel Lists included in the Free Printable road trip  planner

Packing List, To-Do List, Departure Checklist

If you are anything like me then lists play an important part in your travel planning. This printable travel pack includes a packing list, to-do list and two types of departure checklists. One is prefilled with RV and motorhome checks to be made before departure, and another is blank so you can make your own.

We had our checklist on the fridge in the motorhome so I could do a quick check just before moving off. We still managed to drive off having forgotten something. Like when I forgot to turn the water pump off. A falling towel in the shower knocked the tap on and water sprayed everywhere!

Travel Journal Pages

I love to keep a journal on our travels and I paste entrance tickets and pictures from leaflets into my journal as we travel. I always think I’ll remember places and what we did there, but it’s surprising how quickly the memory gets jumbled up with all the other places we visit. So it’s nice to have a record of what we got up to.

There are two types of journal pages in the printable travel planner – one to note specifics and the other to let your thoughts flow.

Vehicle Details and Emergency Contacts

There are pages to keep track of your road trip vehicle details (always handy in an accident or emergency), as well as emergency contact details. All these are useful to have in one place. Hopefully, you won’t be needing them, but the last thing you want to be doing in this situation is searching around for car details and contact numbers for insurance etc.

I always have this information on hand now, after learning the hard way during our road trip in Italy, when we hit wing mirrors with a local van coming in the opposite direction.

The leather-clad young driver jumped out of his van shouting in Italian and jumping up and down. His wing mirror was broken and after throwing it across the road, he continued to gesticulate and throw a hissy fit in the middle of the road. He spoke enough English to tell us we should be communicating with him in Italian and how ignorant we were to come to his country and not speak the language.  Anyway, the point of the story is, that while he was outside arguing with Lars, in what was very clearly Italian expletives, I was inside the motorhome frantically trying to find insurance details, phone numbers etc.

Nowadays I always have what I might need right at my fingertips. And you might like to know … our wing mirror was fine. I think it’s called karma 🙂

My way of handling stress – perfect next stop was Florence, where we happened upon this Lindt shop. Sometimes a girl just has to splurge.

Expenses

It’s always handy to keep track of your budget. You might like to use these pages if you prefer to keep a paper record. Because we are on the road most of the time, we use an app on our phone to track our expenses. However, I do use a paper budget record when planning a trip to keep track of how much it will cost us.

Travel Lists included in the Free Printable road trip planner

Destination Planning, Country Notes and Travel Bucket List

This is for the dreaming, research and pre-planning stages of your travels. Thorough travel pre-planning usually makes for a more stress-free road trip or holiday.

Finding out about the places you’d like to see on your trip, the best routes, what foods you may like to try are all part of that process. There’s lots of information on the internet to help you plan your trips …
