Hertz spoke to 2,000 Brits who had been on road trips, and named the top 10 most Instagrammable destinations based on their answers. The infamous Route 66 came out on top, which takes you all the way from Chicago on the East Coast of America through to Los Angeles on the other side of the continent. Along the way, stops include the Grand Canyon and the Pacific Coast Highway, the Texas Cadillac ranch, and Oatman in Arizona.

Second on the list, the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon, followed by the Pacific Coast Highway, which takes you from San Francisco to Los Angeles along the West Coast. 

But it wasn't just roads in America that made the cut, either - The Argyll Coastal Route in Scotland was named in the top 10, as well as the Great Ocean Road in Australia and Snowdonia in Wales.
