  1. Default Car buying and insuring by non residents.

    We are Australians who wish to take an 11 month vacation in the US and Canada commencing Jan 08. We would like to buy a car and travel trailer and tour continuously. We have seen many mentions of the difficulties in buying and registering a car without a US address. Has any non US resident actually managed this who could advise us?

    There are probably thousands of foreign visitors who have gone this route -- but none of them tend to come back here and post such information. Probably the easiest way to do this, is to use the resources of companies that would sell you a vehicle and guarantee to re-purchase it when you leave. Predictably, such services are expensive relative to doing it yourself. One of these companies is Adventures on Wheels -- we really don't know much about their services, but they might be a good place to start.

    Foreign students face this issue all of the time and most universities and colleges provide advice for how to do this. Look at the second post in this thread for more information about this option.

  3. Default No Reply for buy with buyback from AdventureonWheels or autotourusa

    Firstly,

    Thank you for recommending Adventures on Wheels however we don't think they are in business anymore as we have received no replies to the emails we sent to all the their various locations. We also tried to phone the telephone number on the website during USA office hours ( as we are from Sydney Australia) and also got a dead end.

    Recently we also came across www.autotourusa.com (in Seattle) and have tried to email them but as yet have received no reply.

    Any suggestions?
