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 mems, and many more.
Best Travel Memes on the Internet
1. No children 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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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 Memes
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
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
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
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
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
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
I’ve only done this once, and never again. Unless I find a spectacular deal. I’m willing to deal with a lot of things for a good airfare deal.
22. Cruise Travel Memes
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
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. Most of the destinations are likely safer than where I live, so I’m not sure what she’s always so worried about. But that’s moms for you.
24. Airline seating travel 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
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.
I really hope you enjoyed this list of the 25 Best Travel Memes on the Internet? If you would like to support this blog please consider sharing this post. Thanks for reading.
