California US Route 66If this is you, at TripWheels we have special packages just for you.  Driving in the USA when aged 21 to 24, is viewed as a slightly higher risk to the suppliers than older drivers and therefore, a supplement is normally charged of around $25 per day, plus local taxes.  This can really mount up over a two-week holiday.

Fortunately we have a couple of options that allow you to pre-pay this supplement at a considerably cheaper weekly rate, so that when you arrive you have nothing left to pay for.  Alamo and National offer our Young Drivers Package.  Alamo/National will allow up to three young drivers plus older drivers on the one voucher, this makes Alamo or National a great option for couples or multi-generational families.  By selecting your age before you request a quote via the search, all the results you see will already have the young driver package included, meaning the price you see is the price you pay!
