Europcar in the USA

Whether you’re completing a quintessential cross-country road trip along Route 66, exploring a metropolis like Chicago or New York, or going from beach to beach along the East Coast, there are infinite ways to enjoy this diverse country: Beach holidays, adventure travel, city breaks or road trips.

Europcar has 46 stations across the country in convenient locations in main US airports. Collect your hire car from an international airport and start your journey as soon as you hit the tarmac. You can find Europcar’s stations at practical airports, including Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando, New York and San Francisco.

Driving in the US

Motorists drive on the right hand side of the road in the USA.

In addition to a valid photo ID or passport, you will need an international driver’s licence to drive in the USA.

Each US state has their own laws, but here are some general rules that apply to all drivers in the United States.

The maximum speed limit in most states is 65 miles per hour (110 km/h). The speed limit around school zones decreases to 25 miles per hour (40 km/h) or to 15 miles per hour (25 km/h) during times where there are more people in the area. Speed is regularly monitored by speeding cameras or handheld radar guns. 

The offence of driving under the influence of alcoholic drinks is heavily penalised in the United States. It is also prohibited to text while driving, so take care not to use your phone while you’re behind the wheel.

Plan your route carefully, taking into account the distance, petrol stations and rest stops along your journey as the United States is a large country, with large expanses of remote areas. 

In the USA with Europcar

Renting a car in the USA with Europcar gives you a host of options, whether your journey is short or you’re doing the great American road trip. Choose from a selection of compact city cars like Toyota Yaris or Nissan Versa, or larger models for family holidays, such as popular models like a Kia Forte or a Hyundai Santa Fe for more leg room.

What not to miss while driving in the USA

The United States of America is as diverse as it is big with incredible, world class destinations. So live the American dream with a Californian road trip from Los Angeles to the glitz of the Las Vegas strip, before visiting the breathtaking Grand Canyon. Six and a half hours north of L.A lies San Francisco and its iconic bridge. New Orleans and Austin are where you’ll find some original southern hospitality and soul food; plus Nashville - the home of Country music. Not forgetting Chicago and Lake Michigan and of course the iconic New York City. If beaches are more to your tastes, drive along the East Coast towards the golden shores of Miami and Florida. If even just one of those iconic drives tickles your fancy, it will be the trip of a lifetime.
