This travel control device controls switching of vehicle travel between propulsion travel whereby the vehicle is made to travel while maintaining the vehicle speed at a target speed and coasting travel whereby the vehicle is made to travel by inertia, and is equipped with a travel control unit that, in cases in which the vehicle speed during coasting travel has exceeded the allowable maximum speed of a prescribed range, switches travel of the vehicle from coasting travel to propulsion travel and causes the vehicle to brake, and once the vehicle speed has decreased to a prescribed speed that is above the target speed, releases braking of the vehicle.
