Driving In The USA: My Experience And My Advice For A Roadtrip Of Hell!

Driving In The USA

Do you want to rent a car for your trip to the United States? I have prepared a mini guide on this subject, fruit of my experience after my roadtrip in California this year.

Rent a car in the United States

The price of the car rental is lower than in France. In the United States, this is a common practice. If you return your car to another city, the price will be a bit higher, but roughly, roughly 25 euros a day for the most compact car.

To drive to the US , I opted for the two most economical vehicles. But I confess that renting a Mustang Cabriolet would not have displeased me. I’m not very car, but it must be admitted that she has a mouth. And then, in this way your journey will be more in the American mind no?

There are several major car rental chains in the US like Alamo or Dollar. You also have Hertz or AVIS better known to us.

It is better to book in advance on the net , you will find better prices. For this, you have a large number of rental sites, I let you search on Google.

For my part, for my second 8 – day rental between San Francisco and Los Angeles via Las Vegas, I went through the rental agency Authentik USA . Their price is very competitive: 230 euros for 8 days with discount in a different city. Insurance included.

I did not take care of anything, just come and take the keys to the agency. No problem. In short, I recommend! A good option to drive in the United States.

If you are traveling alone, do not count on the autostappers to keep you company. This practice is prohibited in California and other states. In 12 days, I saw only two autostappers. Pity.
