Renting or Buying a Car – Cars and insurance
If you are interested in buying a car please find several helpful links below:
– Kelly Blue Book provides impartial estimates on cars’ values. Make sure that you look at the private party price if you are not buying from a dealership.
– Ratings and information on a variety of car models and years. Also has tip sheets on buying used cars and looking for insurance.
– Online classified ads to find used cars.
– See tips on “buying a car.” AAA is also a member service that provides roadside assistance and towing in the event of problems. If you will be driving a lot during your time here or are thinking of taking a long road trip you might consider buying coverage.
Unlike insurance, coverage works for the individual, not the car, and is valid for any vehicle you are in.
While most companies will accept a foreign driver’s license to rent a car, most car rental companies will not rent cars to drivers under the age of 25. Cheap rental deals can be found below:
