We all love playing music while we are traveling and especially if its a road trip. Roadtrips are fun, you can stop anywhere you want, you can observe the nature and you can even choose your own route. To level up your road experience, Today I bring you the best travel songs for road trips.
1. Dil Chahta hai (Dil Chahta hai)
Going on a road trip with friends is awesome and this song in the background is gonna take you into the Bollywood journey. Dil chahta hai means “The heart wants it”.
2. Safarnama (Tamasha)
If you are traveling solo and need someone to tell you a story, this song is gonna be the best choice. Perfectly crafted by the Industry standard A.R.Rahman, this song is gonna put you in a state where you’ll just love whatever you see around. Safarnama means “a travelogue”
3. Ilahi (Yeh Jawaani hai Deewani)
How can I forget the ultimate travel song of all times? Ilahi is the story of every traveler around the world who is a vagabond and travels on a shoestring budget. This song can explain a traveler’s life in 3-4 minutes.
4. Sau Aasman (Baar Baar Dekho)
Between the People and the world, under the sky, when a traveler begins his journey, this song is gonna help him go through it. The long tail lyrics of this song is perfect for road trips. Say Aasman means “a hundred skies”.
5. Dil Dhadakne Do ( Zindagi na Milegi Dobara)
This is one of my personal favourites when it comes to traveling. This song has a bumped up music that is very energetic that you are not gonna feel loose or tired. Ofcourse it is from the movie that changed the perspective of Road trips, the ZNMD. Dil dhadakne do means “let the heart beat”.
6. Gulabi ( Shuddh Desi Romance)
This song just has the perfect beats for you to be in the traveling mode and I don’t think so anyone can deny that having this song in the playlist is the best decision. Gulabi means “Pink” and this song was shot in the Pink City of Rajasthan, Jaipur.

This song has everything you’d ever want for a road trip. From slow beats to long tail lyrics, this song is gonna put you in a mood to travel. Khaabon ke parindey means “Birds of the imagination”. This is one of the best songs in this list of best travel songs.

This is the first song in every traveler’s playlist and I have to say, one of the most energetic songs too. Ude Dil Befikre means (Flying with your heart without worries) and this song totally describes it in the best way possible.

This song is gonna make you fall in love with yourself and your life. Here, Zindagi means life and the total meaning of the song is “Love you dear life.”
