How long do we need in the United States?

The United States is one of the biggest countries in the world. You could spend months travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. For your holiday, the question becomes, “How long do we have?”

Travel at a relaxed tempo

To really experience what the country has to offer, we advise at least three weeks for your trip. This way you can see more great things at a relaxed pace. Or, if you have slightly less time, your travel specialist can advise you on the best regions to visit based on your wishes.

How do we travel around?

From Californian coastal roads with beautiful beaches to panoramic mountain passes and awe-inspiring desert landscapes, the United States is best explored by car. The roads are safe and there is so much to see that you are constantly tempted to stop. Taking time to capture these moments on camera is almost a must.

Take advantage of our special deals and travel comfortably, complete with:

  • A navigation system
  • Air-conditioning
  • Full insurance and low fuel costs
  • Hire cars that are less than six months old
  • Plenty of space for your luggage
  • Safe and secure roads
  • A route with only a couple of hours between each location

Drive less, see more

Driving yourself means that you can reach places that group trips and public transport cannot. You can go at your own laid-back pace, avoid the busy cities, and stop when necessary. Your travel specialist will organise a modern and comfortable rental car for you. With only a couple of hours between each location, you’ll have more time to relax and explore together. And that’s what a great holiday is all about.

If you are thinking of renting a motorhome, talk to us now and discover why driving in a rental car is the best way to see the United States.

At Little America, our connections with airlines ensure you have a smooth start to your holiday from the time you step on the plane.
