comment How can I visit areas with unpaved roads in a rental car?
you pretty well always know you're going to succeed once you get to "how did you get my number?" - it's my favourite marker of a conversation that could, handled properly, go extremely well

comment How can I visit areas with unpaved roads in a rental car?
it mighr be useful to distinguish between "unpaved" roads, aka gravel roads, and "unmaintained" roads, which are far wilder. I would not expect to be able to drive a rental on an unmaintained or "unimproved" road. I would expect to be able to drive on on the graded and maintained road that I and my neighbours lived on for decades.

Have you actually seen such clauses? I lived on an unpaved road for years (it has since been paved) and have rented cars when mine was being repaired. Never have I seen such a clause

comment Will I be able to use United Airlines ticket that was paid by a credit card of my friend from USA?
Your name must match. Clients have bought me tickets without knowing my birthdate. Your valid, government-issued identification doesn't need to be issued by the US government, just some government (as opposed to say your employee ID or your student ID card) Use your passport from wherever you have a passport from.
