I've been reading through the forums and found a good bit of information but nothing really that's exactly the same as what i'm planning.
Myself and four friends are students from Ireland and are traveling over for the summer, we're working/living for two months and then traveling for the remaining 3/4 weeks. The plan is to travel from San Francisco down the coast, across route 66 and finishing in new york, where we travel home from.
Obviously we've two options: renting or buying.
For the renting option i've found prices around the $900 dollar mark, which includes everything.
For the buying option i'm not too sure on some after reading the forum. Obviously the good thing about buying the car is its a little more carefree, and hopefully when we get to NY we can sell it and hopefully recover some of what we paid for it.
So my questions are this:
Is it as simple as just buying it and then selling it?
Do i need an address to register it to?
I've seen cars for pretty good prices (around $1000), but will there be extras that i have to pay when i buy it?
Am i legally required to have insurance? If so do i need to get insurance over there or will my current insurance that i have back home be sufficient?
That's pretty much it! Any information anyone could give me would be great.
Thanks in advance,
