Ok, so me and a friend want to go on a mini tour of America next year and we need a few questions answering.
RV / car + hostels?
Wheres good for getting leathered?
Where’s the best like studenty kind of cities? (like we have Sheffield, Liverpool, Manchester etc that are noted for nights out)
When I was under 25, I used to rent cars at Hertz because I could always find a coupon waiving the additional fee for 21-24 year-old drivers. Also, I signed up for AAA (all you need is an American address to receive your card so if you have a friend in the US, you’re good to go), which gave me a free additional driver with Hertz. Between the coupon and the AAA membership ($89 a year), I was saving $25+$13=$38 a DAY!
I would advise you to buy a cheap GPS too, I got one online for about $50 4 years ago and I still use it.
In terms of hotels/hostels, whatever you choose, stick with the same membership program and you’ll save loads!
As what to see, what not to see, you’d first have to decide where you want to go. The US is a big country. America as a continent is even bigger… When would you go? Would you rather go on the east coast, the west coast, or somewhere else? You say a “mini tour of America”… How long would you have?? What do you like to do?
