The North American continent is tailor-made for self-drive touring and whether you choose the open roads by car or by motorhome, you’ll be able to explore Canada and the United States at your own pace and in your own time. From the picturesque New England countryside to the wondrous National Parks, from the expansive Great Lakes to the rich heritage of the South, this is a land just waiting to be explored.
If you have spent any time at all in the US or Canada, you will know that ‘popping down the road’ can mean a half-hour drive and when away from the cities, how uncongested and driver- friendly the roads are. So although car hire is not mandatory when visiting North America, it is definitely recommended and our great range of Discover America Fly-Drive holidays highlight just how much of this vast continent can be visited when you have your own wheels.
A few tips
Make sure your vehicle is large enough – boot (or ‘trunk’) space in most North American cars is surprisingly limited and it’s costly to upgrade when you collect your vehicle
Request Sat Nav – a wrong turn in the US or Canada can add many miles and minutes to your journey
We include all car insurances, so you don’t have to accept any that are offered to you when you collect your car
