DriveAway Holidays gives you the freedom to explore and discover places that would otherwise not be ventured into, in the comfort of your very own hire car.

Being such a large country, each region of the USA has its own unique landscape and attractions. Experience the bustling cities of New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC on the north-east coast, and in the north-west, there is Seattle and Portland. The west coast is a very popular destination, and being home to cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego, it’s no wonder why. This is a great area of the USA to tour in your rental car, with some of the finest beaches found here as well. Or soak up the sun and enjoy the laid back lifestyle of Miami, located on the south-east coast. Featuring classic art deco architecture and boulevards lined with palm trees.

In the centre of the country, things are different once again. This is where cities such as Phoenix, Las Vegas and Dallas are found, and is also of course where the world famous Route 66 passes through. Although it's no longer the thriving highway it once was, you can still travel on parts of it, which will take you through many great sections of the US. There are endless options and possibilities waiting to be explored; family or couple, solo traveller or business trip - whatever it is we've got you sorted.
