Car Rental

21 May 2010 NZtoUSA said

Hi there,<BR>I'm looking at being in the USA for just over 2 months before my contiki starts.<BR>I was wondering if anyone could recommend car rental companies - I will be 20 when I come over, and am looking at going from LA to Pierre, South Dakota (so want to be able to return it in SD).<BR><BR>Or would it be a better idea at the end to drive from Pierre to LA (I'll be turning 21 while over there, so on the way back will be 21).<BR><BR>Thanks if anyone can help me

    well you have to be 21 to hire a vehicle..and there is also a surcharge for drivers between the 21 and 25 years. There’s lots of companies though. Alamo, Budget, Avis, Hertz, Dollar name a few Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
