America’s vast, epic landscape is perfect for road tripping. From the great mountain ranges of the Rockies and the open plains of the Midwest, to the dramatic coastal roads of California and dozens of iconic cities, no other country packs in such variation quite like America.

One-way car hire is the perfect way to cover these incredible distances, giving you the freedom to stop off and explore whenever you please – it’s the perfect excuse for an adventure!

Route 66

One of the original US highways, driving along Route 66 is the ultimate American road trip. Steeped in history and culture, it played a huge role during the 1930s when thousands of American families used it to emigrate west.

The route starts in Chicago and ends in Los Angeles, making it perfect for one-way car hire. In between, you’ll cover over 2,000 miles of pure, unfiltered America, touching sections of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.

Along the way, you’ll pass by the mighty Grand Canyon, the vast, sweeping hills of the Ozarks, Native American reservations and some the United States’ most iconic cities. The route was officially decertified in the 80s, with much being overlaid or routed around by broader interstate highways, but you can still “get your kicks” by driving large parts of the original Route 66.
