Why not fly into one and out of the other? Depending on what order you plan to go to each place.
Thanks, guys.......I was weighing the traffic versus and car rental options......I like your idea, Placebets, but don't know what the one way car rental drop off fees would be.......will definitely check into that, though....
If you are renting a car you might want to compare those rates. In my experience it is much cheaper to rent a car in Vegas than most places. I have rented in Palm Springs but can't remember the rate I got. Also while the cost of the flight might not matter to you the convenience of flight times and connections would still be important. I would guess you will have many more options and better connections flying into Vegas. For example, from my location I can fly direct to Vegas but could not do that to Palm Springs. That would make all the difference to me if I was making this choice.
Rental car rates can be pretty expensive in Palm Springs, especially from the airport with all the tourism fees, or if there events like tennis or golf tournaments going on.
I looked at rental rates for my trip in October and PS was considerably higher than Vegas. Same car is $20-25 more per day compared to Vegas.
When you drive from Vegas to PS try going the back way via JTNP and the Mojave Preserve.Edited: 27 August 2013, 17:35
mombear - don't forget to compare the cost of the rental car drop fee against the extra gas cost of driving from one place back to the other.
