Car Hire

FlyDriveBannerV2

There’s no better way to discover the real USA than by having the flexibility and convenience of driving your own car. Explore the open road at your pace, stop when it suits you and take the time to explore all that this amazing continent has to offer.

Driving in the USA is easy and enjoyable, the roads are well maintained and the petrol is considerably cheaper than it is in in the UK.

IMPORTANT CAR HIRE INFORMATION
Please check that you have the correct size of car for the number of people travelling with you and the amount of luggage you are taking. It can become very expensive if you need to upgrade your car hire when you pick your car hire up at your destination so please check before departing the UK, where it is so much cheaper to upgrade. If you are unsure please do not hesitate to check with our Sales Team who will be happy to assist.

NEVER GET LOST
Once you’re on the road you will want to make the best use of your time, so getting lost will not be part of your plans! Although the roads are well sign posted, having the reassurance of satellite navigation will get you to your destination both calm and relaxed. As satellite navigation is not available with every vehicle it is important that you pre book this when first making your reservation to avoid disappointment.
