Hello, I am planning on doing a Christmas holiday road trip along the following loop:
LAX - SAN - TUS (Tuscon) - ELP (El Paso) - ABQ (Albuquerque) - SAF (Santa Fe) - LAS - LAX
I will be flying into one of the above-noted cities and departing the same one. It does not matter which one, the road trip will simply follow this loop.
My question is, assuming similar cost for flights, which airport do you believe would be best to rent a vehicle (i.e. good low price, less hassles/admin. fees, good vehicle selection).
I am a member of Hertz #1 Club Gold. I usually rent from Hertz and get a small corporate discount, but I am not necessarily partial to them.
I would also consider flying into small LAX-area airports if people believe it would be worth it (i.e. Ontario, Long Beach, Carlsbad, Orange County, Palm Springs, Burbank).
Thanks in advance for any assistance or insight.
