Car hire in California
Hiring a car in California
The most populated state in all of the USA, California is one of the most popular places for tourists from around the world to travel each year. More than 250 million people each and every year come from both domestic and foreign locations to visit the state, largely thanks to its sun, sea and sand, and a number of other highlights that give it a variety and diversity that goes unmatched in most of the other 50 states nationwide.
So whether you want to head into the Pacific for a spot of surfing or shark diving, go into the city to see the fast-paced way of life in Los Angeles or visit the mountains and hills that take you so far from the city, it will be hard to believe you've travelled only a short distance, California really has it all. From movie star lifestyles to nature in its finest form, driving holidays in California are the best way to experience the USA.

Such is the variety in terrain and scenery, that the only way to really see the most of what California has to offer is to hire a car. Not only will this allow you to visit as many amazing sights as possible, but also to partake in some of the best Pacific coastal routes imaginable.
