so me and my husband are planning a world trip in fact, and we will be coming in from Canada to the U.S. to fulfil our great american road trip dream. we will be in the U.S. for perhaps 2 odd months or more, we don't have any set timelines per say. I guess we will figure that out during our travel but more than 3 months would probably be a no-go
- I needed some advise on whether to rent a car and travel from coast to coast or is there a a better way to go by?(please do let us know if there are any recommended car rental companies)
- Is it also better to perhaps buy a relatively stable and cheap car, maybe around $700, if any is available? Since my husband is French, how difficult do you think would the process of buying / renting a car would be for a foreigner?
- also, do you recommend perhaps trains or any other means?
- Is taking planes during the trip a better idea? If yes, are there any cheap airlines that can be looked into? and is it better to book once we are in the U.S. or the rates fluctuate significantly and we need to book way beforehand? (like ryanair and easyjet for Europe)
we will probably be starting our journey from D.C and our mutual interests are, 1. to see the wonders, e.g grand canyon, yellowstone,death valley etc 2. try to exhibit as much of the great natural beauty 3. we are both musicians so hit some of the folk / blues music/ festivals
would be a real help if we can get some guidance from you guys. looking forward.
thanks in advance.
