26 Travel Memes That Will Make You Laugh in 2022

Huskies travel meme

If you’re a frequent traveler I’m guessing you’re also a fan of funny travel memes.

As frequent travelers, we often find ourselves in amusing and precarious situations. Many of which can be perfectly summed up in a great travel meme. 

So just for fun, I’ve put together this list of the 25 Best Travel Memes on the Internet. You’ll find inspirational travel memes, airline travel memes, social media travel memes, and many more.

Best Travel Memes 2022

Journey Quotes

All travel memes and journey quotes for this article have been sourced from the internet. The original source for each image is identified where possible.

1. No children travel meme

I want to travel meme

This is my personal favorite travel meme. It describes my life perfectly.

I don’t have kids so I don’t have to worry about family responsibilities when planning to travel. I’ll go wherever the cheap flights will take me and try to never miss out on a good flight deal.

2. Hotel travel meme

Travel meme

This is one of the most hilarious travel memes I’ve found.

I don’t tend to mess with housekeeping much, but I have to admit this is really funny.

I’ve actually worked in housekeeping before, many, many years ago. I’ve seen some things. But definitely nothing like this.

3. Airplane travel meme

Best travel memes

Agreed! There’s something relaxing about flying and looking down on the world below. 

Funny travel quotes like this also perfectly sum up how I feel about flying. I love being away from everything, not knowing anybody, and just having this time to myself.

I’ll listen to a good book or podcast and just enjoy the quiet. You can’t go anywhere until the plane lands, so you might as well make the most of it.

Does anybody else find flying therapeutic?

4. Group travel plans meme

Vacation countdown meme

I think this travel meme sums up everybody’s experience when planning a trip with friends.

At least until we learn to stop asking people to join us beforehand. Now I just tell people my plans after I’ve booked my trip.

If they want to join, great! if not, they can stay home. 

I also love how the pics in this travel meme include dogs! Dogs are the perfect recipe for a funny vacation meme.

5. Packing travel meme

Travel meme - email address

This is one of my favorite funny travel memes going around on social media. I think it’s one we can all relate to.

Personally, I buy lots of clothes I never end up wearing, mostly because I’m a terrible shopper.

Yes somehow these clothes always end up in my suitcase. It’s amazing how that works sometimes.  

6. Airline baggage policy travel meme

Travel memes instagram

How perfect is this funny travel meme?

Airline baggage policies often both amuse and infuriate me, mostly because many are a bit ridiculous and don’t make much sense.

I do understand the airlines need to make up for the cost of low ticket prices somehow, but I feel they could do a better job explaining their convuluted baggage policies.

Not all airlines are bad at this, but some certainly are.

I think many also miss that the weight limits are not because the plane will be too heavy, but because the airline is limiting the weight of the bags for baggage handlers.

You wouldn’t want to be lifing 100 pound suitcases all day either. Keeping them closer to 50 pounds is safer for the staff moving your bags on and off the airplane.

7. Water at the airport travel meme

Best travel meme

This has happened to me too many times. I’ve since learned to bring a refillable bottle in my carry on.

I can’t imagine how much money this has saved me in just the past year. Now if I could just remember to buy chewing gum before I get to the airport. 

To be totally honest though, while I may not be spending money on bottled water at the airport, I sure don’t seem to have a problem spending money on wine at the airport. Who’s with me?

8. Carry on bags travel meme

Image of kermit the frog drinking a cup of tea

I’ve seen this a million times as well.

Fortunately, I usually manage to squeeze my bag in somewhere in the overhead bin. 

It always makes me wonder how some people have so many items when the airlines’s baggage policy states each passenger gets one carry on.

I’m starting to think people just hide their bags when they go to the counter for check in.

9. Airplane boarding meme

The Office travel meme

Some people take FOREVER in the aisle. I don’t even understand how whatever they’re doing could possibly take that long.

Do they not see the line behind them?

Seriously though, can someone explain this to me?

10. Reclining airplane seat meme

Best travel memes

I’ve never been one to recline my seat on an airplane because it doesn’t make the flight any more comfortable.

I also don’t want to squish the person behind me.

Like everybody else, I hate it when the person in front of me reclines their seat. For some reason, this always happens when I’m watching a movie or eating.

Why someone would recline their seat during meal service is beyone me, but it happens. If you paid for your seat on the plane, you can recline it if you wish. It’s really not that big of a deal. I’m usually just happy to be on a plane in the first place.

11. Southwest Airlines meme

Best travel memes

I love how seriously some folks take the boarding situation on Southwest Airlines.

I never really put much thought into it other than to ensure I check in right away to get a good boarding position.

I’ve definitely overheard some squabbles between passengers before though. This usually seems to happen when someone tries saving a seat for someone else who hasn’t been able to board yet.

I don’t really get why people insist on doing this. It’s not the end of the world if you don’t get to sit by your friend or partner during a flight.

And if it is such a big deal, why didn’t you just pay the $20 for the first boarding group? Makes no sense to me.

As for me, I head to the back of the plane to grab a window seat and silently hope no one sits next to me.

12. Reward points travel meme

Image of character from The Office sitting at his desk. Funny Travel memes

Gotta love The Office…and travel reward points. 

I don’t know about you, but I always make my purchases using a credit card that gets me points for travel.

I personally use the Chase Sapphire and a few Marriott rewards credit cards. I use the Sapphire for airfare and the Marriott cards for my hotels. It works out perfectly.

If you don’t already have a good travel rewards credit card or business travel rewards card, I strongly encourage you to get one. Use it for all your daily purchases, you’d be surprised how quicly those points add up.

Just be sure to pay it off in full each month. The reward points are no longer worth it if you’re paying hundreds of dollars in interest fees to carry a balance.

But if you can handle the card responsibly, say hello to free flights and hotels.

13. Airplane boarding travel meme

Image of John Goodman holding up a small gun

Any meme with John Goodman makes my list. 

Plus vacation memes about people blocking the airplane aisle are so accurate. I don’t understand this aspect of traveling by plane.

When I’m boarding a plane I usually feel awkward if people are waiting behind me to pass. So much so that I’ll do whatever I can to limit my time in the aisle.

If I’m taking longer that a few seconds, I’ll usually just step out of the aisle to let other pass if there’s room to do so. Not sure why everybody doesn’t do this.

Also, what’s up with people waiting until they board the plane to start digging things out of their carry on roller bag? Why? Just why?

14. The summer tourist vacation meme

Image of Jack Sparrow running from a gang of pirates

My own reaction is similar. I live in Los Angeles and know that certain areas of the city are just off limits come summer.

I’m talking about you Santa Monica and Hollywood Blvd. 

Even when I make my travel plans I consider the possible crowds for the destination I want to visit. I usually avoid Europe entirely in the summer. Not only are there too many tourists, but the prices are way too high.

I’d much rather travel in the spring and fall when everybody else is back at work. You wouldn’t believe all the deals you can get by opting for off season travel destinations .

15. The Alpaca Road Trip Meme s

Image of a white alpaca

Every list of funny travel memes needs an alpaca road trip meme. Plus, this one shows the true spirit of a road trip.

Road trips are best when they’re spontaneous, with the right people who are down for anything.

16. Waiting for my friends to travel meme

Image of skeleton on a couch

People often ask me when we’re going to travel together?

I used to entertain these comments with destination ideas and time frames. Now I just respond by suggesting they let me know when they’re ready to book the trip.

This is usually the end of the conversation. I think many people just like to talk about traveling, but don’t really have any intention of doing it. 

17. Always posting on social media travel meme

Funny Travel Memes 2019

We all have that friend who has to post every single photo they take on Facebook. You know the one.

18. Parents traveling without you meme

Starting Vacation Meme

Many of us can relate to this in one way or another, whether it be travel or something else. It always seems your parents start doing cool things after you’ve grown up and moved out.

19. Covid Travel Meme

Travel Memes Covid

So many of us had travel plans this year that were cancelled. I know some of us handled it better than others. Here’s to hoping we’re out of this soon.

20. I wish I was quarantined in Paris travel meme

Travel Memes 2020

This was absolutely me for the majority of the pandemic. I live in a suburb of Los Angeles and would have given anything to be stuck somewhere more interesting.

21. Airlines travel meme

Funny Vacation Memes - Travel memes images

I’ve only done this once, and never again. Unless I find a spectacular deal, I much prefer to pay a little extra for more comfort and convenience these days.

22. Cruise Travel Memes

Travel Memes Coronavirus

I don’t think anyone had it worse during Covid than the cruise industry. I have no idea how they plan to operate again, but I’m sure things will be interesting when they do.

23. When your mom is always worried travel meme

Best Travel Memes

I absolutely relate to this one. No matter where on the planet I go, my mom is always worried about the safety of the destination.

Honestly, most of the destinations I visit are safer than where I live.

24. Airline seating travel memes

Airline memes

In all honesty, it never ceases to amaze me how little room some airlines leave for passengers between the rows. I’m lucky I’m on the small side.

25. Airport Travel Meme

Travel Memes

I admit it, I’m definitely guilty of this one. I’m excited to be at the airport and traveling, but also bored at the same time. It’s a difficult situation.

26. Bank account travel meme

bank account travel meme

When your travel dreams are bigger than your bank account. I feel like this is true for most of us, and it’s definitely true for me.

I really hope you enjoyed this list of the 26 Best Travel Memes on the Internet? If you would like to support this blog please consider sharing this post. Thanks for reading.

Funny Travel Memes That Obsessive Travellers Can Relate To

When people hassle you for travelling too much (as if that’s a thing).

55 hilarious travel memes to inspire wanderlust and adventure #travel #funnymemes #memes

My lovely family often blames me for travelling too much.

They always keep telling me why do I need to travel so much.

And when will I do all the normal things that ‘normal’ girls of my age do (Earlier it was marriage, now that I am already married, it has come down to having kids!).

Now both mine and my husband’s side of the family thinks I am obsessed with travelling. And whenever they tell me this, I roll my eyes and reply that I could have been a serial killer or drug addict.

And the irony is that I had started travelling as a kid with my parents and extended family of uncles and aunts!

When You Love to Travel but your Bank Account is Cryin’ For Help

55 hilarious travel memes to inspire wanderlust and adventure #travel #funnymemes #memes

I picked this meme because not only is always appropriate to include High School Musical references, but also because it rings true as an ever-present struggle for many keen travellers.

Jetting off to new and exciting places can be expensive at the best of times, so when you’re constantly prowling Skyscanner for the next best deal your bank account is the first to suffer!

The play-off between the need to see the world and the need to sustain a living is a tough one, but as anyone who loves travel will tell you, you make it work somehow!

Okay, I’m closer to the 30s than to the 20s, but still…look at this map again.

There are so many places out there to explore! So, nope, not today.

I still love planning, but he definitely loves to laugh a bit too evilly whenever he puts a kink into my perfectly planned road trips.

I found this meme on Pinterest years ago and have kept it in my “Humor” board ever since.

While I love the idea of just winging it and throwing a dart anywhere at a map, it’s also ironic because 70% of our world is covered by water.

So this meme just puts it into perspective how much we take the ocean and travel for granted. It also makes me laugh every time I see it and show it to people!

This cycling meme particularly appeals to me, because I do a lot of my travel by bicycle.

I can’t mention how many times someone said the next section of road would be flat, and I ended up faced with this!

I think the beauty of this travel meme though, is that it is symbolic of any type of travel or even your journey through life.

I feel alive! Is this what happiness feels like? Here, have some. 

Long Haul Flight Memes + Airport Travel Memes

The joy of getting a row to yourself.

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

Travel can be so stressful and flights are certainly no fun fair with security lines, all that waiting around and the thought of spending hours in a cramped seat with total strangers sitting just a bit too close.

But what if some magic meant you had a spare seat on the plane or even better two!

This meme perfectly sums up the mix of happiness and relief of a full row to yourself on an aeroplane.  

After all the stress of the airport, that extra leg space or perhaps nap space will definitely result in the happy seal face!

The Ridiculous Overweight Baggage Charade

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

I find this travel meme hilarious in the way it states the obvious.

Having to unpack and repack my stuff into a different bag that goes on the same plane just doesn’t add up, does it?

I love it when some airlines aren’t really that strict about checking the weight of your carry-on, but the ones that insist on doing so and then making people unpack and repack – it’s a hassle that travellers could do without.

I like how this meme puts across this issue that most travellers face at some point.

Weird Thoughts From 36,000 Ft

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

If you have been on a plane before, you know that it can be a frustrating and exhausting experience.

You don’t really realize how much time you spend aimlessly scrolling through newsfeeds and texting your friends.

If this meme doesn’t speak to you on a spiritual level, I don’t know what does!

I always find myself counting the seats on a plane or tapping incessantly when the boredom hits while on a long haul flight.

This meme reminds me that I am not the only flier who thinks about some, well, interesting things while they fly.

Weird things happen when you’re stuck in a metal tube with a million other people.

Adulting the Sh*t Outta Life

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

I have a little bit of a reputation for being a hot mess.

Although I’ve made it to 30+ countries relatively unscathed, I usually do lose a passport, forget essentials like underwear or just plain miss the flight.

I connect with this meme practically on a spiritual level because, like success kid, I feel victories in the little things when it comes to travel.

That’s why I now pack two or three spare batteries instead of one!

When I was a child, I was fascinated with planes. Flying and being pampered while in the air! Maybe it was as I was a kid, I was happy to get what I could .

With the increase in carriers over the years, I’ve realized how things have gone downhill!

Gone are the days where flying is only for professionals, the cheaper flying gets, the quality of services being provided falls further!

Thoughtful Travel Memes

The only thing you buy that makes you richer.

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

Travel always had a positive effect on my life and I cherish the fact that I have been born to travel and I consider myself very fortunate to be able to travel.

‘Travel is the only thing you buy,that makes you richer’ is my favorite travel meme.

Everything in this world is temporary but the learnings,teachings that we gain from travelling stays with us.

It enriches your life as you come to know about other religions, people’s characters, their lifestyle and way of communicating.

I have gained a lot from traveling.

Travel Buddy Memes

When your friends bail on you and you’re left flying solo.

55 travel memes for your next vacations. Work, adventure, lol, repeat. That's life. Don't miss them #wanderlust #travel #traveling #memes

I chose this travel meme since this is one of the reasons I started traveling solo.

I was tired of friends cancelling and rescheduling travel plans. I realised that life is too short to be dependent on anyone else.

I would prefer doing something that I love on my own rather than waiting for people who may or may not join.

Digital Nomad Memes

Perception vs reality.

55 funny travel memes that are so true it hurts. The adventure and hilarious side of vacations, then the sadness of going back to work... #funnymemes #travel #memes

I love this meme about being a digital nomad.

Although many people think being a digital nomad is a glamorous lifestyle of lying by the beach during the day and partying at night, the reality is much different.

Most of us spend all of our time in front of our laptops working and, like the final picture shows, are often working so late that we crash out in front of it.

35 Funny Travel Memes You Will Easily Relate To

travel meme images

Last Updated on February 26, 2024

Traveling remains one of the most thrill-inspiring human experiences. It doesn’t matter whether you’re exploring the icy landscapes of Antarctica, going on scenic road drives in New Zealand, or sampling Africa’s finest wildlife on scintillating game drives. There’s simply something about traveling that makes it so therapeutic. If it were up to us, we would all tag along our friends and family members.

However, the financial and logistical challenges that come with traveling mean that you can only go on a trip alone or with your nearest and dearest ones. Thankfully, you don’t need to lock everyone else from sharing in your adventures. Not when you can post suitable travel memes on your social media platforms to keep your online community abreast of every happening during your vacation. Compared to blogging and vlogging, travel memes are a fast, convenient, and cost-effective way of keeping everyone updated during your trips.

We have prepared a collection of 35 vacation memes that every traveler will love. Our travel memes will help your friends to partake in your experiences in an exotic destination, albeit virtually. The memes cover a broad range of aspects related to traveling. For instance, you’ll find memes that you can use to set the right mood for your next trip. You can also browse our list for travel memes that will prep you for unpleasant surprises during your vacation. The memes are also incredibly hilarious and will help to relieve the stress and fatigue that’s associated with traveling.

Using our travel memes, you can communicate to your friends and relatives on your intent to travel, or the fact that you’re already out of your city or country. That way, you’ll avoid unnecessary calls and visits. Posting our travel memes on your Facebook or Instagram account weeks prior to your departure is a perfect way of finding suitable travel partners. You never know how many people in your location were also planning vacations to your destination of choice. Most importantly, our vacation memes are an excellent way of traveling with all of your family and friends without necessarily having everyone leave their physical locations.

But now that I am a backpacker who no longer packs a bunch of stuff, I advise people on how to pack light ! If you still pack like this girl, worry not, do it step by step and you’ll get better at packing light!

50+ Funny Travel Memes

They say laughter is good for the soul, and I try to find humor every day. Travel memes make the day go by easier, and life’s too short to be serious 24/7. Here are a few funny travel memes that I’ve created or come across over the years on social media that sparked conversation and a few laughs. There is a funny travel meme for every type of travel situation.

Baecation Memes

Some of us choose to travel over dating. Some of us have hilarious stories from baecations. Here are a few memes about traveling with or with a significant other.

travel meme images

This one was sparked after seeing several people talk about fly outs and sponsored Dubai trips. I also was still frustrated by traveling with someone I thought I knew (not a bae) but I didn’t know at all and in the end, cost me a ton of money and a friendship. When I created the travel bae application/Travel buddy, now available in digital format , I always knew I wanted my future partner to love travel so here’s an easy way to vet them. I reposted this at a later date and asked the WHTW Squad what questions they would add. In general, most people agreed they want someone to travel with and needed this “application” to hand out to prospects.

travel meme images

It depends on the destination and who had the idea for the trip. If it’s a destination I picked, I’m partner 1. If I’m just along for the fun I’m partner 2.

Funny travel memes about group travel vs solo travel

Unless it’s a baecation or my close friend. I prefer solo trips. I don’t even listen to people when they make comments about wanting to join me. Usually, when it’s time to go, they are nowhere to be found. Some will even go through the act of inquiring about pricing just to flake.

travel meme images

Does anyone else have people ask about joining your trip and then ghost you? The minute you post about the trip they are shocked you went without them? Ahem, just a friendly reminder. You will be left behind. I’m not afraid of solo trips.

If I had a dollar for every time someone said they were interested in the trip and then dragged their feet but pretend to be mad when they see me posting from a trip we discussed, I’d be rich! We’re all adults and I’m not chasing anyone around to travel with me (chase a check).  I’m not afraid of solo travel. Check out “7 Reasons To Travel Solo!”

In 2016, Arthur returned to our screens, not for the reason you think. Someone started “meme-ing” faces and gestures from the childhood show. It was only appropriate that I adapt Arthur’s fist to travel. The caption was not far fetched as I constantly receive invites to travel but during this time I was ready to save money and take a small break. A lot of people can identify with the struggle of wanting to buy every flight deal vs being responsible.

travel meme images

Ok this one may not be funny but I want to mention the misconception about travel is that you have to make a lot of money to be able to travel. I receive far more questions about where I work versus how I travel. Read this article to to find out how I was able to book over 15 flights on points last year . How I fast track to high hotel statuses . How I’ve been able to travel so much and not accumulate debt and pay off student loans. How an airline financed my trip to Dubai.   How I visited Cuba for under $300 for everything . How I use social media to pay for trips. Hint. It’s not all credit cards or having a lot of money. I use various discounts and points for every aspect of the trip. Down to even getting into airport lounges at a discount.

Here is a link to all the travel discounts I use to travel without breaking the bank.

In my early travel blogging days, my friends would give me crazy looks or roll their eyes (you know who you are) when I would take extra time to capture a shot or walk off and start narrating. Before we unpack I have to capture the room and take notes. Some friends were afraid I wasn’t enjoying the moment. As time progressed they got used to it and realize they benefit from my effort to produce great content.
