… just remember to check luggage allowances before you board!
Tick off a road trip around America from the Bucket List by renting a car.
Renting a car to travel America will be one of the best ways to make sure you see all the sights and quirky locations that you’d otherwise miss.
You’ll need to be over 25-years-old to rent a car for a decent price… but you could always make friends with Americans at camp who already drive!
You’ll want to make the most of your time travelling America, and that might mean hopping from State to State, or even coast to coast!

TrekAmerica is a great way to see a lot of the country in a short amount of time.
Your tour guide will take you to all the best spots and you’ll be exploring with other travellers. You’ll be taken around on a minibus and so you won’t have to worry about travelling from place to place.
TrekAmerica tours can be booked while you’re still in the UK or when you’re at camp! If you go through us, we can get you 10% all trips too.
Get yourself a bed before you start travelling. There are lots of cheap and interesting places to stay in cities right across America.
