Driving in the USA: parking and other tips

Lets review what you need to know before you pick up the cheapest car rental for your holidays in the USA. You don't have to worry about your foreign licence, your UK driver's licence is fine for driving in the USA. It is recommended however to bring an international driver's permit, as some car rental companies require them. It's worth checking out local rules, as regulations may vary state to state.

Let's talk about speeding. Limits vary in urban areas from 25 to 30 miles/hour. On highways you'll see everything from 55 to 75 miles per hour. Speed regulations are strict so it's better to drive slower than risk a ticket with highway patrol. There is little tolerance for drinking and driving. Always designate a driver to take you back to your hotel before you start the party.

Road trips in the USA: what to do, what to see

New York

New York

New York, New York (of course sung by Frank Sinatra). This incredible city has been the inspiration for many songs, paintings, poems and novels and we can't even count how many films have been made here. With its large and leafy Central Park, its tall and epic Empire State Building, the charming Ellis Island and the spectacular Statue of Liberty there are endless ways to spend a trip in the Big Apple.

California

California

California is one of the best states for road trips. The weather makes it a great destination year-round. Grab flights that touch down in San Francisco or Los Angeles and let your USA rent car take you down Rodeo Drive, through Beverly Hills and off the Disneyland. Grab a map, your friends and your road trip soundtrack and don't forget to stop in places like Yosemite National Park.

Florida

Florida

Florida is the state of eternal spring. Thanks to its close proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the weather here is fine all twelve months of the year… just watch out for the occasional hurricane in July! The best places to visit are of course Miami Beach (a hot spot for American celebrities), Tampa Bay and Orlando. Some of the best beaches in the country are in Florida, so don't forget your swim kit.
