My boyfriend and i are travelling to USA in June for 3 months - we land in NY and were planning on renting a car for the entire time and doing a full circle trip of the US.
When investigating car rental companies we found out that the price is very high for us as we are both under 25.
However we found one company that does a YDP where we can pay £400 up front rather than the $25 + tax per day. But that is only valid to one driver. And from Florida - so we would get the train down the east coast to florida then rent the car and drop off in new york (having to pay a drop off fee!)
Over all the car rental for two drivers would be £3800. (could we possibly get away with just paying the one driver?)
We have heard of companies where you can buy cars and the company is guaranteed to buy back off you for a discounted rate - does anyone know of these companies?
Would it also be cheaper to just buy a car (considering insurance and break down cover?)
We are so confused and need the cheapest and best deal for us.
We need as much advice as possible. We really wanted our journey to be a road trip experience and travelling on greyhounds and trains i don't think will be as enjoyable.
Again any advice will be so hepful!
