Easter on the road in the US of A.

There isn’t the hype around Easter as there is around Christmas and Thanksgiving- but we at Airport Rentals feel that there should be! Better weather, a guaranteed four-day weekend and endless chocolate. These are the ingredients of a fantastic road trip in the United States, without the crowds of travellers you might find on other significant dates.

Easter car rental

The early bird gets the worm, and the early booker gets the rental vehicle they want for their Easter holiday. However, Easter 2015 is coming up fast- and there are still plenty of cars available. You might even pick up a last-minute deal! 
Take a look on Airport Rentals and you can compare a huge range of options from suppliers both international and local at 600 airport locations across the country. Everything you need to know about each rental vehicle is right there on the results page, from pictures and price details to reviews from previous customers. Filters allow you to narrow down the list and find the right car for your Easter road trip in the USA.

Pick up and go

The USA’s biggest cities with international hub airports are where most travellers pick up rental cars to explore the United States. These are the busiest airports around the States, and some ideas for where you could take your rental car for a four-day Easter road trip. 


The Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is, surprisingly, the country’s busiest. In the heart of the south, there are plenty of places you could go- including the famous Nashville, home of country music. 
Drive the 4 hours northwest to Nashville and spend a day soaking up the culture. Don’t leave without listening to some aspiring musicians on open mic nights and trying some of the city’s famed fried chicken! Then, get in a little scenery at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park before heading back towards Atlanta. There are plenty of scenic drives in the Park where you can take in the views.

Los Angeles

LAX is number two on the list of the USA’s busiest airports. It is the first port of call for many visitors to the country- and as such, there are plenty of car rental companies operating from the dedicated Rental Car Center. 
Los Angeles is a city that requires a car and you could spend four days exploring the urban area. However, if you want to hit the highways, there are some great possibilities. The coast to the north is called the Big Sur and is famously beautiful- try a trip up to San Francisco and back. Alternatively, head for the bright lights of Las Vegas and sneak in a visit to the Grand Canyon while you’re there.


Third is O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, the urban heart of the midwest. Fly in here and pick up a car rental to live a little of the American Dream and get acquainted with a fantastic city.
Chicago is right on Lake Michigan, one of the Great Lakes. Drive east along the shore and then cross to the Canadian border to visit Niagara Falls which lies between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. You could also make tracks to the south to visit some more midwest metropolises including St. Louis, Louisville and Cincinnati


The fourth busiest airport in the United States is Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, located between Dallas and Fort Worth in Texas. If you need a car to get around anywhere, it’s here in the deep south- where spaces are wide open and bigger is better. 
A car can take you all over the Lone Star state- in four days you could visit Houston, Corpus Christi, San Antonio and Austin if you hustle. Loud, lively New Orleans is also well within reach at around 8 hours’ drive from Dallas. Consider a one-way road trip and you could make it as far as Florida or California.
