  1. Default 2-3 weeks trip NY to LA or Mexico

    Ok some help and tips are needed to plan a trip. Now I'm probably coming at you blind so please be patient with me.

    Me and the good lady are looking to drive from NY hitting R66 at some point down to LA mid Jan 08. Thinking about a 2-3 week time frame.

    * Is 2 weeks possible?
    * What would be the most direct route?
    * Is it simple enough to hire a car in NY and drop of in LA,
    Mexico or at the border?
    * What would the cost or car hire/gas roughly work out?
    * What's the going rates of motels per room on route? min-max?

    * Plus any other hints or suggestions you could give at this stage.

    Thanks, TBC... Neil

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! As you may know, Route 66 runs between Chicago and Los Angeles. Here is an excellent site for learning about what there is to see on the famous "Mother Road".
    * What would be the most direct route?
    I-70 or I-80.
    * Is it simple enough to hire a car in NY and drop of in LA,
    Mexico or at the border?
    Sure, there are significant drop-off surcharges and one can not drive a US rental car into Mexico, but folks drive across the USA in rental cars all the time. It takes about five days to drive from NYC to LA.
    * What would the cost or car hire/gas roughly work out?
    We have free tool that you can use to determine that.
    * What's the going rates of motels per room on route? min-max?
    $45 to $100 USD.
    * Plus any other hints or suggestions you could give at this stage.
    Here are some general tips for determining a reasonable budget for road trips.
