Hi all, I’m here to ask for some help in my week long trip home back to the states. I’m mostly concerned about car rental and getting data on my phone. Both of the aforementioned should not be a problem when it comes to ID because I am holding a U.S. passport and U.S. driver’s license. The issue is I’ve been away for so long that I cancelled my phone plan back home and also sold my car.
Of course, one of the few important thing you need in the states is a car and a phone.
- I’m on a pretty tight budget, so I’m hoping to rent for a low fee and as hassle-free as possible (meaning no extra fees added onto the daily fee for the car). I’ve been looking at a website similar to air bnb (https://turo.com/), but I’d be open to any other suggestions if you guys have any.
- Since I will need data right as I land to get in contact with the rental car person and my friends I’ll be visiting, I hope to already have data when I land. Has anyone traveled to the states recently and can suggest how I would go about doing this? I found some sellers on Ruten selling pre-paid 30 days T-mobile SIM cards, but they’re a little expensive.
FYI I will be traveling to LAX via SFO. Does anyone know if there’s a place I can get a SIM card inside of these two airports?
