  1. Default Buying and Insuring a car at 19-if your from England

    Everyone’s telling me that its impossible to do this: basically I live in England and In June I am traveling from San Francisco to New York in the space of three months just for a fun summer thing, I am desperate to get hold of a car/camper van, buy it, insure it etc and drive it across, selling it in New York, but I can't seem to find out how to do it.

    Is it possible to buy a car in the states if you don’t have an address there, or an American license? Are there any companies that can sort this sort of thing out? I've been driving for a year and have a UK license, but i am only 19... If anyone can give me any ideas that would be great, thanks!

    Nope, not impossible -- challenging, but not impossible. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!

    Go to this page and then scroll down to the discussion about the types of insurance available, from there you will find two threads that offer tips on how to do what you are trying to do.
