Hi everyone,

Me and a friend are looking to travel around America for three months over the summer of 2014.

We are researching about whether to a hire a car or to buy a car for this time.

As we will both be 21/22 we are finding it very expensive to hire a car, as insurance and costs are higher if you are under 25.
But, with buying a car we have read everywhere you have to have a permanent US address although we though buying a car to tour America was a common thing to do.

Any thought/opinions/help will be greatly recieved!

Thank you! :)
