Car hire in California

Car hire in California

Slide the hardtop back on your top of the range convertible as you cruise across the bursts of sea spray on California’s famous Pacific Coast Highway. Likewise, if your plans are to drive across the world famous Route 66, you can travel in comfort and check out the assortment of roadside attractions such as The Santa Cruz Mystery Spot. For the more picturesque views, buckle up for an  excursion across the Golden Gate Bridge or California’s Tioga Pass, containing the entrance to Yosemite National Park and of course, The Sierra Nevada Mountains.


Switch on the ignition and explore the vast range of entertainment attractions that California has to offer. For the motorcar aficionados, follow the road to the Peterson Automobile Museum, labelled as an ‘auto enthusiast’s paradise’ with exhibitions such as Hollywood: Cars of film and television and Hot Rods. If you’re a thrill seeker interested in visiting California’s infamous entertainment attractions, plan your trip from the seat of your car to explore wonders such as the iconic Disneyland Resort or Universal Studios, the bizarre Winchester Mystery House, Hollywood’s Walk of Fame and the San Diego Zoo.

Restaurants, Hotels and Shopping

Ideally, set your Sat Nav and embrace the culinary splendours of one of the food capitals of the world with a leisurely drive to Melrose Avenue’s Pinks Hotdogs for a taste of some good old American comfort food from a classic vendor that has been around since 1939, or for a spot entertaining dining off the Pacific coast, try The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, inspired by the movie Forest Gump, where unlike Forest’s choice to run, you’ll be only happy to drive to. Looking for a place to stay after a long day at the office in downtown LA?, drive off in a hire car stylish enough to make your colleagues envious, and discover the unique accommodation that California has to offer, such as the famous Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel which catered to stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin, or for a really extraordinary experience, check in to the Wigwam Motel on Route 66. Round off your journey and switch to cruise control for a spot of window shopping on Rodeo Drive, or head for a little retail therapy in San Francisco’s Union Square.
