There are definitely more buses than that (not a lot more, but still), at least in the summer when there are a lot of tourists around, but information is difficult to find on the Internet. There are many different companies and they don't all have up-to-date schedules on their website. The site Corsica Bus seeks to gather information about public transport ...

You can certainly rent from private parties their Relay Rides is the site that allows you to do exactly that. Insurance is something else entirely. Normally insurers in the US want to cover the driver long term 6+ months. I have been in a situation like this looking for a short term insurance for someone and I've not had much luck. Relay Rides doesn't ...

I believe Iceland has the most road (by length) per person meaning a little money has to go a long way in maintenance. And priority will be given to those roads that are totally impassable rather than just poorly maintained. Whilst technically being a road quite a bit of it is gravel track and full of pot holes. This will increase wear and tear on a car ...

Tips to rent for cheaper Last time I went I rented with SADCars. Compared to North American prices I still found it expensive, not to mention the horrifying price of gas (2.5CAD/L), but a much more palatable alternative to the more established companies. They rent some old cars with high mileage, some not very pretty, but mine did about 2000km without ...

'Expensive' is relative. That said, a quick search on https://book.cartrawler.com saw me get prices for under 500 euros for ten days. Still not very pleasant, but better than 1100 euros. Your question is really asking why Iceland is so expensive, as the relatively high cost of things in Iceland is not limited to just car rentals. Numbeo shows that the cost ...

I'll give the answer the other way: as a Belgian who rent cars in USA, prior to coming to USA, I went to my local administration and ordered an international driving license. It is basically a holiday card size 12 pages booklet containing the translation of all my local driving license fields into 4 languages. It has my name and other information on it, has ...

A US license will be fine, especially at any airport hire location (I imagine you plan on landing at Geneva?) Hire cars in Europe normally come with insurance included, although there is also typically a ~€1000 excess for damage to the vehicle, which you can pay an additional (typically vastly overpriced) fee to reduce. I'd be suprised if your US car ...

Last time I was there, it was very easy to go from one side to the other (that's not the case in Geneva for example) and I can't imagine it has become more difficult recently, with Schengen and everything. So you can choose the side that's more convenient for you. Things to be mindful of: Swiss motorway vignette: Swiss cars are more likely to have it. ...

Received a parking violation May 2015 in France via a notice on the windshield of our rental vehicle. Had parked, as all others did, partially on sidewalk and partially on road. No signs to indicate no parking. Tried to go to municipal police stn and also mayor's office to try to pay as the ticket only indicated an infraction, but not the fine. Finally the ...

Sure, should be no problem. Here's a list of all the car rental companies operating near the SD airport (from the San Diego Airport website). I had no problem finding a small car at Dollar for 3:30 today at ~$50/day.

There's no rule against it. A quick search on hertz.com revealed plenty of options left for today. I would try to secure it online rather than at the desk.
