To see the real heart and soul of Route 66, you need to get up close and personal with it. We're not just talking about visiting a few major cities along the highway, we mean journeying from start to finish by car, meeting the locals and experiencing the spirit of this legendary route.

Of course, Route 66 Tours are not just for bikers. All our great destinations and tours can be also explored by car, whether you drive yourself or let one our expert tour guides take the wheel. From the comfort of a private vehicle, you're able to see Route 66 with your own eyes -an experience much different from a coach.

Keen to see Route 66 on a car tour? Here are the key details that you need to know.

What cares are available?

At Route 66 Tours, our main aim is to ensure your experience is as genuine as possible. While the sights and sounds of Route 66 are pretty special, you'll be spending a lot of time in a vehicle, which means car selection is critical.

We liaise with Hertz who prioritise safety, comfort and function - allowing you to have a wide selection of high-quality vehicles to choose from. Hertz also offers 24/7 roadside service and all vehicles are extremely reliable and comfortable.

For those driving one way, the fee charged directly by Hertz is not included. Additionally, travel Insurance is also required, but is not included in your package.

The available cars include standard SUV tour cars or V8 sports cars and convertibles.

Standard SUV tour cars

With premium storage space, comfortable seats and premium entertainment options, our most popular tour option are standard SUV tour cars. Select from:

  • Chevy Captiva*
  • Hyundai Santa Fe*
  • For Escape*
  • Jeep Patriot*

*Subject to change and limited to availability.

V8 Sports cars and convertibles

If you want to see Route 66 from a special set of wheels, this is also possible. You can choose to upgrade to a larger SUV or select an option from our limited range of V8 Sports cars and convertibles.

Just imagine cruising down Route 66 with the roof down, the wind in your hair and the smell of freedom and burning gasoline - memories that will last a lifetime. Select from:

  • 420hp GT Mustang*
  • 426hp SS Camaro*
  • 436hp Corvette*
  • 375hp Dodge Challenger R/T*
  • 505hp Corvette Convertible*

*Subject to change and limited to availability.

Hertz have recently introduced the V8 Muscle Car Adrenalin Collection. These popular vehicles are in great demand across the United States and as a result cost more to hire than a standard SUV.

As such, if you're interested in navigating down Route 66 in a Convertible or V8, please let us know as early as possible as limited upgrades are available.

Self-drive or tour guide

One of the most important decisions that you'll make while planning your Route 66 road trip is whether you want to take the wheel or not. This comes down to a number of factors, including:

  • Driving ability and experience
  • Driving confidence on overseas roads (US drives on the right-hand side)
  • Desire to drive the famous Route 66
  • Desire to watch the scenery go past
  • Whether you'd enjoy being chauffeured along Route 66 with a driver/guide.

With a self-drive, we provide a Route 66 guide, but you have complete control about where and when you go. This means you can sleep in, depart late or even take a detour to somewhere off the map. 

This said, if you don't want to drive on the right-hand side of the road and would rather avoid dealing with traffic and parking, you can be a passenger in your chosen vehicle. Whatever your preference, we want to offer you a way to see the real Route 66.
