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.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by CompareCarHire.co.uk? at this location
