LEASING/BUYING A CAR |
The essential requirements:
* U.S. Drivers License
* Car insurance
Credit history: Most companies deal with a customer on a case by case basis. The customer they are most comfortable to do business with is one who has at least a two-year credit history in America. For incoming foreigners, it is therefore strongly advised to make the same documentation available that had to be submitted for opening a bank account or signing a lease. In a worst-case scenario you would have to find a U.S. co-signer.
