Europcar in the USA

There are infinite ways to discover Uncle Sam’s land when you hire a car in United States of America. Whether you are off for 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 West Coast.

There are 46 stations located in main North American airports. Picking up your hire car from an international airport allows you to start your journey as soon as you hit the tarmac. Europcar’s practical airports locations include Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando, New York and San Francisco.

When you rent a car in the US with Europcar, you need to collect your hire car at the Fox Rent a Car counter. Europcar works in partnership with Fox Rent a Car, a trusted American car hire operator. 

Driving in the USA

In the USA, motorists drive on the right-hand side of the road.

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

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

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

Driving under the influence of alcoholic drinks is heavily penalised in the United States. Texting while driving is also prohibited, so be careful to not use your phone while you are behind the wheel.

The United States is a large country with many remote areas. Plan your route by carefully planning the distance between petrol stations and rest stops along your journey.

In the USA with Europcar

Always dreamed of doing the great American road trip? When booking your rental car, ensure that you choose the vehicle that is most adequate for your car hire needs while in USA in terms of size, room for luggage or air conditioning, from compact city cars like Toyota Yaris or Nissan Versa, to 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

Where to start? The USA has world class destinations which often have played starring roles in famous films or TV shows. Take a Californian road trip from Los Angeles to the glitz of the Las Vegas strip, before visiting the breathtaking Grand Canyon. Six hours north of L.A lies San Francisco and its iconic bridge. If beaches are more your thing, plan a drive along the East Coast of the USA where the golden shores of Miami and Florida await you. 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, New York with all its wonders.
