I've spent the last few days reading through all the posts around this place.
I don't do anything half-measures...I am planning a road trip in just over a month....Driving from mid(ish) October in NY to arrive in CA 4-6 weeks later.
Someone had suggested I buy a car in NYC and sell it in CA, but to be honest, as a single woman, driving across the country, I'd prefer the piece of mind of a rental. Besides I am hoping to get the car rental sponsored anyway. :-)
After seeing (on here, I think) that AVIS do one-way rentals, I looked on their site but didn't see anywhere I could get a quote.
I could pick up a car in Connecticut if it would be cheaper - or would NYC be the best bet due to volume of cars?
I'll start another thread about my rough itinerary for some of your expert opinions.
Thankfully, I run a successful website with members all across the US who are kindly offering me sofas (to sleep on), tanks of gas, food vouchers and hotel vouchers too. . .so that will at least help keep SOME of the costs down, but I already have a feeling this will cost well more than I've estimated...
Anyway thanks so much for advice/tips on the car rental...If I can manage to sort that - the rest will fall into place.
