Which vehicle class is right for my trip?

  • Compact cars are an economical and practical choice for city travel. Their smaller size means easier navigating around town and finding parking spaces in historic cities such as San Francisco.
  • Sedans are a great option for inter-city travel and longer journeys. Their extra comforts and amenities can help keep you relaxed and let you enjoy the ride. While on a longer vacation in Florida, it's easier to make the most of your time by visiting Miami, Orlando, or Fort Myers!
  • Sports cars and convertibles are a fun way to add some excitement to the drive. A convertible is a perfect companion for cruising coastal highways like Florida's A1A, while an exotic car is a stylish way to explore world-class cities like Atlanta or Las Vegas.
  • SUVs are the sidekick you want for adventures in national parks or on a beach vacation. With ample room for passengers and gear they keep short and long trips simple with their versatility. Rent a pickup truck in Texas to explore Dallas and San Antonio in comfort.
  • Minivans allow you to bring extra luggage along hassle free and give you a reliable, and safe means of travel. Passenger vans that can seat up to 15 are available at some of our US branches.

What to Do in the USA in Summer 2019

There are endless activities to enjoy in the US during the summer months and you will need a car to enjoy many of them. Summer school breaks mean many popular attractions like national parks and theme parks will be busy. Still, it's worth fighting the crowds to visit gems like Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, or Yosemite National Park. If you are heading to Florida or California, enjoy Disney World and Disneyland. And because the southern part of the US is quite hot in the summer, seek out some water and a beach whether in Los Angeles, Miami, or New York. You can also embrace the not-so-hot temperatures in places like Seattle and nearby Olympic National Park, or head to the Great Lakes outside Chicago for some boating or beach time. Look out for July 4th holiday activities at your destination including parades and fireworks displays. And celebrate the end of summer break with a barbeque on Labor Day, a holiday the first Monday in September.

Top Architectural Sights

Built in 1962 the Space Needle has become a symbol of both Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Visitors can take a 41-second elevator ride up to its observation deck that sits at a height of 520 feet. The 102-story Empire State Building in Midtown Manhattan was the world's tallest building for 40 years and is a strong example of Art Deco architecture along with the Chrysler Building. Both skyscrapers are classic sights that make up the Manhattan skyline.

Top Natural Sights

One of the most famous natural landmarks of the US is the Grand Canyon and visiting it makes for a fun road trip from Las Vegas or Phoenix. The awe-inspiring site is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and more than a mile deep. The South Rim is the most popular viewing point and is open year-round, but visitors can partake in all kinds of activities at several different locations. Yosemite National Park's well-known Half Dome is a granite dome whose crest rises almost 5,000 feet above the valley floor and is a popular spot for rock climbers looking for a challenge. The three waterfalls that comprise Niagara Falls straddle the borders of the state of New York and the Canadian province of Ontario. Together they form the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world with a vertical drop of more than 165 feet.
