Transportation

Road
In general, the road infrastructure is in very good condition, although some secondary road sections can sometimes be damaged or impassable due to bad weather conditions. If you want to rent a vehicle, you need to be more than 25 years old and hold a credit card.



Rail
The railway network is in good condition. However, passenger trains are slower and less travelled than in Europe. The inter-city transit network is more concentrated, busier and cheaper.

Air
The domestic network is considerable. We would like to draw your attention on the fact that safety rules are very strict in the United States. When you check in your luggage, it is important that you answer all questions both precisely and honestly.

 


Internet

The Internet suffix is: .us



Languages spoken

Official language: English. In the USA, English is spoken by a majority of Americans. However, about 32 million people speak another language at home. Half of them speak Spanish especially in Arizona, Texas, California and New Mexico. The other languages are Amerindian languages such as Navajo and Hopi. It is important to note the languages spoken by immigrants in the main ethnic communities (e.g. Chinese, Japanese, Italian, German, Polish, Greek etc. ).
