Route 66 is the quintessential American road trip. No other road has captured the imagination and the essence of the American spirit. It has inspired musicians, filmmakers and writers. Only 85% of the road has survived, but its spirit lives on. In the past decade, non-profit organisations and the US National Park Service have mobilised efforts and provided grants to protect and preserve what is left. Life is percolating through Route 66 once again, and people come from all over the world to get their “kicks”. Car enthusiasts ship their classic Mustangs, Fords and Chevys across oceans to cruise this iconic road and experience a true slice of Americana. The cycle of struggle, triumph, survival and nostalgia is laid out around every bend. Today, road trippers will see vintage motels, old-school diners, restored gas stations and towns that look frozen in time. It’s the trip of a lifetime.

Since 1926, driving down Route 66 has been the experience of a lifetime for travellers, adventurers, desperados and dreamers. While officially Route 66 no longer exists, a great deal of it remains to be driven and enjoyed. This tour will take you on a journey through eight states from Chicago to Santa Monica in Los Angeles.

"I was fortunate enough to drive Route 66 last year. My expectations were such that despite looking forward to the challenge, I was sceptical as to how much I would enjoy certain parts of the drive. To say that I enjoyed every bit of it would be an understatement, it is without doubt the ultimate road trip and one that everyone should do at some point in their life-time. There is so much to see and do, there’s just no way you can do it all in one trip". Bob Cole, MSCC Travel Club co-ordinator. Click here to read more...

Q - Should you hire a car or ship your own car? 

As wonderful as it would be to drive your own car across the USA, the reality is not quite that straight forward. The cost of shipping your car is very expensive, Insuring your car in the USA is difficult and should you have a problem with your car as you travel across America it could prove both disastrous and very costly.

A - In our opinion Route 66 is all about ‘the drive’ and the sights and attractions you’ll see on the way. Bear in mind that during the tour you are likely to experience temperatures in the mid-thirties, so those travellers in convertibles will find themselves putting the roof up a lot of the time so as to enjoy the comfort of the air-conditioning. In saying this, if you want to ship your car, that’s fine. We can put you in touch with our shipping partners who will take care of everything for you.

Our Cost to Coast tour price includes a Mustang Convertible (or similar*)

Driving a genuine 'American Muscle Car' across the USA is on so many people's wish list of things to do.

We are delighted to help make this dream come true and have included the hire of a Mustang convertible in our 'Coast to Coast' package price. Unfortunately Mustangs are not readily

available from Chicago however we are able to offer a 'Guaranteed

Mustang Convertible' at a supplement. As these vehicles are not

generally available, rates are much higher than a standard hire

car starting at around $249 per day plus $25 per day Collision

Damage Waiver, Roadside assistance, GPS hire, & taxes

and a $1500 One Way Fee. Please note: Crazy as it sounds,

it actually works out cheaper to do the Coast to Coast Tour

than to upgrade to a Guaranteed Mustang from Chicago!
