If you plan to have a road trip from Boston to the country side ( we drove to Vermont because It’s the best place to witness the beautiful fall foliage ) I can't insist enough how important it is to reserve or pre book the car online. Because we had a lot of trouble getting a car as it was long weekend due to Columbus day (Thanks to Columbus) and all the cars were booked. Also make sure to ask your car rental company for EZ Pass. It’s the new electronic toll collection system in the Massachusetts.

Thats where my journey began. DOHA(QATAR) to BOSTON(USA)
