Top tips for renting a car in Palm Springs

  • You’ll want a rental car while staying in the Palm Springs resort community so that you can take advantage of its award winning golf courses, art galleries, and chic boutiques. With a rental car you can also drive through the desert to Joshua Tree National Park, the Living Desert, or one of its other forests or botanical gardens.
  • Palm Springs International Airport is small, relaxed, and hassle free. Despite its size, many major carriers fly out of this airport. It also offers most of the amenities of any large airport including on-site car rental agencies such as Alamo, Avis, Budget, and more. Once you are off the plane, simply go to baggage claim, and retrieve your belongings, and the car rental company is right there.
  • When driving through the desert, make sure to have plenty of gas since you don’t know how close the next station will be. Additionally, because of heat you should have plenty of drinking water with you in case of car trouble. If it rains when you are driving through the city, be on the alert for street and parking lot floods.
  • Note that in the winter the population increases considerably, resulting in more traffic. Traffic is thickest in Palm Springs between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. Commuters returning home from work can also cause traffic backups between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Some of the heaviest traffic is on Hwy 91 and State Route 111.
