California car hire: getting around the state

The West Coast of the United States is a great destination for those who want to explore more than one place in a trip, and travelling by car is the best way to explore it and not to miss anything.

To drive from North to South of California you can take the I-5. It crosses the whole state, terminating in Mexico. If you are arriving from the surrounding states, another highway might be more convenient on your trip.

For instance, if you are coming from the north the I-80 might be the best choice. Additionally, if you wish to explore the nearby states such as Nevada or Arizona, take the I-15 and, if your next option is Arizona, drive along the I-40.

Wherever you decide to finish you trip, with Budget you can pick up your car in one of our California’s branches and leave it in any other branch as Budget offers one-way car hire within the US and Canada. Also you can have useful extras as GPS, special insurance covers, or child safety seats.
