My father and I will be going on the following trip, combining plane and a rental car. My question is, if the road conditions are predictable enough to say that a normal economy car would suffice (we do not want to go offroad in Death Vally nor drive through the Grand Canyon if the conditions will be too harsh). Do we have to rent snow chains additionally?
16.3. Arrival in New York
16.3.-19.3. New York
19.3. flight to Phoenix, Arizona, then drive to Flagstaff
19.3.-22.3. Flagstaff (tours to Grand Canyon, etc.)
22.3. drive Flagstaff - Las Vegas
22.3. - 24.3. Las Vegas
24.3. drive Las Vegas - Death Valley - Ridgecrest
24.3. - 25.3. Ridgecrest
25.3. drive Ridgecrest - Vasquez Rocks - LA
25.3. - 28.3. Los Angeles
28.3. drive Los Angeles - Phoenix
29.3. flight to New York
Also, we are not sure yet if we should drop off the car when we arrive in LA and then pick up an new one on the last day for the journey to Phoenix or if we should keep it (there are a few free parking spaces at our hostel).
Thank you for any advice!
