There’s several different sizes of vehicles—like Scout, Voyager, and Nomad—depending on how many people you’re bringing along and how much space you need to spread out. All vehicles do have a pretty decent list of standard features, as it does sounds like they’re fully stocked with pots and pans, DVD players, normal bathrooms, and even an Xbox 360. There’s even running hot and cold water to make the open road feel a little bit more like home. Still—you might want to plan at least one night at a hotel every once in a while to break up the journey.
As for pricing, all this convenience and relative luxury isn’t going to come cheap; our sample quote for a week in June came out to around $1,000. That’s for the Scout option, which promises to be a decent size for just a couple of people or a smaller family of four. We tried to see if there were still options available for this year’s Olympics, but unfortunately it looks like they’re either sold out or prepared to price gouge—“Please contact the office for special rates for these dates.”
Overall, it’s definitely a unique way to check out the country, and it’s kind of nice to see a company like Hertz getting behind the idea. That way you at least have a big corporate overlord to contact with complaints if things go sour.
