me and my friend are planning a roadtrip through the states during our summer holidays from college. We want to drive from the East to the West Coast, mainly through the South. Since we're both from Germany and already have to pay for the flight, we need to budget a lot. We hope that we can afford to travel about a month. So my question is if anyone has some tips for us on how to save money during the time we travel. We're planning on mostly staying at friend's places who live basically all through the South... just in the big cities we'll probably need a motel. Since renting a car for a month is way to expensive, we thought about buying a used car and then sell it afterwards. Do u think it will lose much of it's worth?
Thanks everyone... Britta
