    Driving in the US

    I'm planning on driving when I go over in a couple of weeks, do I need anything other than my full driving licence with me to rent a car??

    No.

    ACTUALLY, you will need a credit card in your name, they will need to put a charge on it, then when you return the car you can decide to pay cash or use the credit card!

    A credit card

    I assumed that no one would think renting a car was free.

    You can't use a debit card can you?

    I didnt think so anywho..

    Credit card, driving license (photo and some ask for paper as well) and some ask for your passport - which you will have anyway.

    Hope you haven't taken out their insurance!

    Rental companies in the US charge a fortune for insurance. There are a few companies based over here that enable you to pay for everything you need in advance, thereby evading those charges and the resultant taxes and other rip-off fees.

    Take a look below:

    I used the top one a few years back, even though I'd booked a fly-drive, it still worked out cheaper.
