We are travelling to USA this September and landing in Las Vegas airport.
We would very much like to travel around the South West planed a route driving to Kingman, Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Monument valley, Paria Canyon-Vermilion and possibly onto Zion before heading back to Las Vegas.
I understand that car hire insurance in USA doesn't cover for dirt roads and tracks or graavel paths. Is that correct? we really wanted to drive the loop at Monument valley (dirt road), maybe that is not possible in a hire car. Has anyone hired a car and driven the loop?
We hope to do some treking and many begin on dirt road tracks in Arizonia, possibly similar around Zion. Can anyone recommend or advise on car hire? I have read some where that people have had hefty fines for driving on tracks. We have also made a accomadation booking and have to drive on a gravel track to get there. Does that mean we are not covered when we hire a car? Has anyone one experienced problems with car hire? Any advise would be very much appreciated. Thanks
