Location information for United States

Car hire in the USA

The USA is a vast country with a corresponding amount of tourist attractions to match. From the world-famous skyline of Manhattan to the legendary beaches of California and Florida, this country is brimming with abundant natural and historic sites, as well as numerous entertainment venues. With low petrol prices, USA car hire is by far the best way of getting around.

Major airports and ports

There are lots of international airports in the USA, but European visitors mostly land at JFK or Newark Airport in New York. Airports in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Honolulu are the arrival points for Asian and Pacific passengers. There are few international ports in the US, but Cunard sails from Southampton to New York.

Transport

It is 3,000 miles from the east to the west coast of the USA. People short on time are probably better flying between major cites or using car rental in the USA. Driving across the US is rated as one of the finest road-trips on Earth, and is popular among visitors with time to spare. Greyhound Buses are a cheap means of intercity travel for those on tight budgets, but the USA’s rail network only covers a few cities and routes.

Driving tips

Motorists drive on the right in the USA. People from Europe can usually use their home country’s licence and minimum driving ages vary from state to state, although the minimum age required to rent a car is 21. Globally recognised vehicle suppliers including Avis have service stations throughout the country, but travellers should compare cheap car hire in the USA here first.

Places to visit

Cars are best for trips outside the big cities, such as to New York’s Coney Island, home to the legendary amusement park and Long Island’s beaches. Florida also has some of the world’s greatest beaches, as well as theme parks such as Disney Land and Bush Gardens. The Grand Canyon (see image above), Yellowstone National Park and the Niagara Falls are other iconic draws, while the majestic Rocky Mountains offer sports and activities all year-round.
