Travel Inspired Dad Jokes – Happy Father’s Day!

If you’ve ever travelled with your family, be it a Griswold-style road trip or a far-off adventure, you know it can be full of blips, unpredictability, and often, heaps of hilarity – especially when dad’s along for the ride.

It’s almost as if travel ignites a certain cheekiness in fathers, empowers them to keep the mood light and somehow sharpens their punny-bone. Dad jokes may be eye-rollers, deep sighs, and face-palm worthy in the moment, but when we think back to some of our best family vacations, they wouldn’t be half as good without dad’s obtuse sense of humour.

So, for the love of dads on Father’s Day, we’ve compiled some of our favourite dad jokes, inspired by travel. Enjoy!
