Coast to coast drive from San Francisco

Jump to last reply

Hello USA! Next April/May I'm planning a big trip, part of which - I hope - will be a 3 week solo drive from SF to Boston. I'm not looking for advice on routes or what to see etc, as I already have my list sorted. What I am asking about is the vehicle.

My first idea had been to buy, then drive, then sell a vehicle for the trip. However, it transpires that a non-US citizen is not able to register a vehicle, due to the lack of a US address. That's fair enough. Rules are rules. (A pick-up or a convertible would have been my choice.) So - the next step was to check out renting a car. This is not a problem and, booking far enough in advance, the rates are reasonable. The annoying part is the one-way charge of 500 dollars.

Many years ago, when I did a coast-to-coast on I-10, the car I rented was in what the agency called their "floating fleet", and it was registered (if I remember correctly) in Wyoming, so there was no one-way charge.

Has anyone got any ideas about how to avoid that charge, or even alternate ways of doing it? I don't want to use the bus/train/plane alternatives.

TIA !!

Roger
