Car Rental & California tips
California is the USA’s most populous state, and boasts an economy that’s bigger than all but 8 countries in the world.
Transportation in California is based on a car culture, with many highways, freeways and expressways joining up its cities and towns. Large cities are known for traffic congestion and poorly maintained roads (by American standards), but equally this enormous state offers promises of the Pacific highway, sunlit vineyards, rolling hills and mountains and coastal road trips.
Whether for leisure or necessity, hiring a car in California is strongly recommended as railways and air transport is limited, while public transport in cities is even too limited to cope with the scale of the metropolitan areas involved.
