I was planning a road trip this summer (either 4 weeks in June/July) or 6 or so weeks in August/September. Looking around the forum it seems there are a lot of you in the know, so thought it would be best to ask you guys..
There are 2/3 of us heading over from the UK wanting to do a road trip at our own pace, and are wondering the best way to travel.
Looking at car rental even for the cheapest model comes to a crazy price, mainly the 1 way surcharge, also the young drivers surcharge (we are aged 20-21), and various other taxes and charges. We had thought it may be better to purchase a reasonably cheap car once we arrive, drive it over then try and sell it upon departure - what kind of hurdles are in the way with doing this? Issues like insurance, taxes, registration etc - we are clueless.
What about public transport? Buses are a consideration failing any other viable alternative to car rental/purchase at a reasonable price.
Thanks for any of your ideas!
