I´m from Germany and I´m planning a road trip from NYC to Omaha, NE with my grilfriend (September, 30th - October, 4th or 5th). We are thinking about taking the I-80 for most of the trip and we don´t want to be on the road for more than 5 days (2 day stay with a friend in Chicago implied). Is that actually possible? I saw that long stretches of the I-80 aren´t toll free....how much do I have to calculate on toll?
Besides that I´d like to know if you could give my advices on cheap car rentals and what kinda car we should rent (reliability is most important :-))
Hope to hear from you!
