33 night USA road trip visiting California, Nevada and Utah. This price includes flights, car hire and hotels.

This deal is based on 2 people flying out of Heathrow on Wednesday 1st May returning Monday 3rd June and staying for 33 nights.

You will stay in Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Simeon, Monterey, San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Death Valley, Las Vegas, Zion National Park (Area 51), Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Arches National Park, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon National Park and San Diego.

This guide includes a fair bit of driving so be prepared for this. Also it is only a rough guide so you can easily change locations or durations if each destination to fit it to your perfect holiday.

All of the hotels I’ve chosen have at least a 3.5 rating on TripAdvisor, they all have a good location and free parking.

Some of the hotels have a shared bathroom but all have good reviews, also it is difficult to find private bathrooms for a cheap price in some of the locations such as national parks.

If you don’t mind sharing bathrooms the whole trip or even sharing bedrooms you will save yourself a fair bit of £££

The flight I’ve included is direct from Heathrow but indirect on the way back with a short stop of an hour and 20 mins in San Francisco. The flights are with United. I’ve not included baggage, if you want to add a 23kg bag it is £60 each return. You’re entitled to a 10kg hand luggage case and a handbag. It will be warm so can pack fairly light and you can use laundrettes along the way if you are wanting to save money.

If you prefer a direct flight it is around £73 extra, again this doesn’t include luggage and that is an extra £50 each for £20kg, that is travelling with Norwegian out of Gatwick.

The car I’ve chosen is a basic car, if you’re like me and don’t mind what you’re in this is the cheapest option. If you want to travel in something nicer such as a Mercedes this is an extra £250 on the total price for the duration. If you want something even nicer such as Mustang this is an extra £430 on top of the basic car.

Hi @BlueSkies this is awesome! I'd skip the stay over in San Simeon and just use it as a rest spot - there's so much to see along that coast! Love it
Very tempting, although it is hard for me to plan that far ahead.
I do have some unfinished business in Pacifica and a special friend in Barstow, I could visit . . .

heated.

Yessss that’s what it was intended for, and sunset to watch the elephant seals! I love that coastal drive
Would love to do this.
Good lord, heat for the effort alone. Works out about £50 a day per person which is really good. If only I could get the time off to go 😁
Excellent post. 10/10 for the effort put in.
Amazing
Heat just for the post! Well done op.
Anyone know where I can buy some leave
I’d skip Grand Canyon and spend more time in San Diego. At breweries and the beach!
California is amazing. Yosemite national park is unbelievable. Have some heat. 🔥
Dream holiday
Good job. I am in the process of planning a 25 day West coast of America road trip in 2020 and my current potential route tallies with quite a lot of yours, bar visiting San Diego and Arches NP. Heat from me anyway.
Fantastic effort and a great deal! Not that there's any chance I could get 33 days off at that time of year to do it, and leave my 4 kids behind!!

No ambition!
I would like to have 33 days of holidays... 😣
Wow, heat added for the work put in and what looks like a great deal

Also as it takes in five weekends and two bank holidays it's only 22 days holiday.

It's not the number of days, it's the fact I work in education so have restricted leave dates!

Education at that time of year can be very stressful... A nice holiday would help!
Wow. Heat added for effort. Great work!!!
Super trip, but make sure to purchase SLI (insurance) in the UK before you go.
4 stars should be minimum criteria on TA but heat for effort!
Heat added for pure effort...👏🏻
I’d love it to do this but can’t get the time off work
Top effort

Top efforts - always find these really interesting!!
Epic post! Thanks for sharing. HAVE SOME HEAT

That’s what I was thinking.
How can i do this but with a motorbike instead.
Heat added for time effort and sharing
Thanks for the time you've taken in researching and posting this. This is what I plan to do when the kids have moved out so I'll use this post as a base for arranging my trip
Fab post good effort
Ho ho ho no ! Be careful ! This is not a package holiday ! Meaning if anything goes wrong your not getting your money back I deal with this at work on a day to day basis if your not bothered then ho ho go !
