Getting to United States of America

Exploring United States of America

Loading map...

Driving around the US is a popular way to explore the country. Not only is driving a relatively cheap way to get around, but it also allows visitors to see the beautiful countryside. Most rental car companies will require you to be least 25 years of age, although younger people might be able to rent cars at slightly higher rates and with some insurance differences. A national driver's license is usually enough, but an additional international one is recommended.

To help you get around by car, gas stations usually sell regional and national maps, although many drivers choose to get driving directions on their home computers prior to their journeys; MapQuest and Google Maps are popular websites for obtaining directions. Drivers can get directions in the midst of their travels by calling 1-800-Free411, which will provide text message directions, or they can stop and ask locals for nearby directions. Americans are usually happy to give directions to travelers.
