Road trip LA -> Seattle

Hey guys!

So my cousin and I (21 and 19) are flying to LA and road tripping up the coast and departing from Seattle. We're going from May 25th to June 5th. We plan on going up the coast to experience the landscape and beautiful features. We're not much into attractions. We plan on more of a scenic drive and experiencing the sights. We're very adventurous and pretty much down for anything. Any tips or even must see locations we should stop at in Washington? Feel free to ask any more questions. Thanks for the help!

First question - have you found a car rental agency that will rent to someone under 25? Have you investigated the additional fees that are charged when you drop a car somewhere other than where you picked it up? Often these charges are higher than the cost of the actual rental, and they go up the further away you drop the car from your starting point.

You might want to look at using the Amtrak train and then just getting off the train at different points along the route.

We actually found a rental place that allows a 21 year old to rent a vehicle

Good job finding an agency. Get your offered price in writing. A 22 year old aquaintance of mine recently got a big surprise when trying to rent a car here -- her quoted rate could not be found, and they tried to stick her with a rate hundreds of dollars more.

Check out the rental rates at Costco.com -- it is worth joining if you're not a member.

For trip advice, you should post on the Road Trips forum. It is not as state-specific.
