Is it possible to fly to the US this upcoming Thursday (todays Tuesday so about 3 days)? We've (My Dad and me) never flown to the US before, but my passport is valid and up to date. We're from the UK, and will be flying from it, which is part of the Visa Waiver Program.
The ESTA website says it is almost immediate in saying whether you've been accepted or not, but is there anything more that is needed. We're trying to plan a last minute 3 day holiday to see the last Shuttle launch, so return on Saturday.
Will this be possible? Also is it ok to just find a cheap motel or something when we get there? Or even sleep in a rental car?
