Reaching the United States is easy thanks to frequent flights departing from the main cities. Many airlines fly to New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. To reach smaller cities (for example Denver, Colorado), you need to make a stopover. The costs are within everyone’s reach because of the increasingly competition: now it’s a breeze to reach the US with low budget .
If you are looking for low-cost or high-end accommodation, the USA can satisfy anyone. In the big cities there are hostels, luxury hotels, but also apartments available . A separate topic should be made for motels: they are in fact outside the large urban centers, especially along the roads. The cost per night in the hotel varies from city to city. Expect pretty high prices in New York and San Francisco . While it comes down from time to time in Orlando or in smaller cities.
Getting around in cities like New York and Chicago is a breeze thanks to the dense bus and metro networks. Another story if you are visiting Miami, Orlando or Los Angeles. In the latter the ideal is to use Uber or rent a car. The average cost of bus and metro tickets varies from city to city. In New York I recommend the Metro Card.
CAR AND GASOLINE – Rental costs
Renting a car during a trip to America requires a credit card. Prepaid or debit cards are not accepted. The rates are very cheap, but if one of the drivers is under 25 you will have to pay about $ 25 more per day. Do not despair though: the petrol costs very little . And in group the cost will be really low.
FOOD – Costs and how to save
Looking for the perfect hamburger? It will not be difficult to find it. In fast food the average cost of a menu is between 6 and $15 . In restaurants, expect to spend $10 up for sandwiches and burgers with fries or mashed / baked potatoes. Want to sushi? Prices are around 25-30 $. To save money: look for the hot dog carts , tacos (from $ 3) or if you’re on the road and want to eat in a hurry, Walmart is for you. There are ready salads, chicken sandwiches, healthy snacks, but also biscuits and any kind of dessert.
INSURANCE – How and which to choose
The choice of insurance is an important step in organizing a trip to America. Choose the one with the highest ceilings and guarantee the direct payment of hospital costs so you do not have to anticipate thousands of dollars. You read well: thousands. Health in the US is expensive. Always start with insurance and do not take the matter lightly Read more
