A friend and I are planning to travel up Route 101 from San Francisco to Portland. We're coming from NZ and most of the rest of the trip will be probably be by public transport.
So we want to hire a car but I'm coming up again two problems
a) really hefty daily hire rates (which I presume are because the hire is one way?)
b) or the online booking facility says they are "sold out", which I presume may just mean they don't do one way hires.
So a couple of questions... Is there a company that does one way hire without charging astronomical rates? And if its not possible to do the trip by rental car is it the sort of trip you can do by bus or shuttle? We were planning on taking 4 days to get from SFO to Portland up route 101.
Many thanks for any help anyone can offer!
