144 Printable Travel Trivia Questions and Answers

Going on a family trip can be a lot of fun, at least as long as no one is too bored while getting to the final destination! With the advance of electronics, it’s pretty easy to have a high level of entertainment with a minimum of packing, but after a while, even staring at a screen can get old. One of the best screen-free ways to break the monotony of long trips for my kids turned out to be playing car trivia games.

They love a bit of friendly competition on the go, and we can all play, even the driver. I started making printable trivia games with family-friendly questions for them. We’ve got Animal Trivia Game, Nature Trivia Game, Earth Trivia Game, and even the seasonal Christmas Trivia Game.

Eventually, we started giving the trivia games as gifts. Printing another copy or two is always easy, and they make for a fun creative gift with a one-of-a-kind homemade vibe. It has worked especially well if someone comes for a visit from afar and faces a long trip back. One of my friends sent me a thank-you message and said they played my trivia game several times in a row, memorizing all the answers by the end of their trip (it was 19 hours long!).

That’s when I had an idea. If we use these games most while travelling and give them to friends who are travelling, wouldn’t it be fun to make a trivia game about travelling? I thought it would be!

Printable Travel Trivia game will make a great present!

How to Play Travel Trivia

Each Travel Trivia card comes with six questions – three easy and three hard. Players can choose whether they want to answer an easy or a hard question. The easy questions come with multiple-choice answers and are worth one point; the hard questions are open-ended and are worth two points. Rolling the die determines which of the three questions of that difficulty gets asked.

Travel Trivia Game Question Cards

A die template is included. It is also possible to use a standard d6 die and substitute rolls of 4, 5, and 6 as 1, 2, and 3. Another alternative would be to use a random number generator. Yet another alternative is to ask a player to choose a random number from 1 to 3.

If the player answers their question correctly, they keep the card for scorekeeping. If not, the card goes back to the bottom of the pile, so someone else will have to answer a question from it in the future. The game ends when all the cards are gone, and the player with the most points wins.

You can easily adapt the Travel Trivia game for the classroom. One possible variant would be eliminating taking turns. The teacher would have to read all the cards, and the students would have to venture guesses. Another variant would be playing in small groups.
