Im from the UK and me and a couple of friends are hoping to go on a road trip across the US this summer. However, we are not quite sure how to go about this as we are not sure how easy it will be for us to purchase a car once we get out there. We have looked into hiring but it is very expensive to do so for a long period (we will hopefully be travelling in the US for about 2 and a half months). At the moment it looks like we will be starting our trip in Seattle and ending up in New York or Washington D.C. Does anyone have any advise for me on buying a car? I have got a lot more questions but will save them for another time....
