Route 66 Car Hire

Route 66 lies at the heart of the legendary US road-trip; a 2,448-mile stretch of historic tarmac connecting the Midwest to the Pacific Ocean and providing the basis for an all-American rite of passage.

Celebrated in pop culture from Pixar's Cars, R&B standard (Get Your Kicks on) Route 66 and Karl Pilkington's An Idiot Abroad, the highway remains a metaphor for freedom and the true spirit of the American dream. Despite its decommission in 1985, thousands still make this iconic road trip every year with only a few tweaks to the original itinerary.

Must-see attractions

Look out for the following points of interest along the way:

The Blue Whale (Catoosa, Oklahoma) is a smirking, 80ft mammal statue originally built as an anniversary gift but now enjoys the coveted Roadside Attraction status.

Petrified Forest National Park (Arizona) is a park of fossilised tree logs, over 225 million years old. Visit its archaeological sites and dig up a few dinosaur fossils.

Route 66 Mother Road Museum (Barstow, California) houses classic cars, vintage photography and auto-repair signs for the avid (and casual) collector.

The Wigwam Motel (San Bernardino, California) opened in 1949 and is undoubtedly the best collection of 30ft concrete tepee hotels in the area. Each unit has a barbeque grill and a kidney-shaped swimming pool.

Meteor crater (near Flagstaff, Arizona) is over 50,000 years old, 2.4 miles in circumference and 167 metres deep. You can't miss it!

Giganticus Headicus (Walapai, Arizona) is a 14ft, blue tiki head which loves having its photograph taken.
