Car Hire Palm Springs

Palm Springs Airport Guide

Most people go to Palm Springs simply to relax or to take part in the many sports that are offered there. There is more to the city than the resort culture and if you have the time, visit the Agua Caliente Centre where you can learn about the tribe that made the area around Palm Springs their home. After that visit you can take a hire car out to the Indian Canyons to see the remains of ancient tribes that once populated the region. Another must do activity is to take the aerial tramway around Palm Springs and see the city from the air.


Palm Springs Airport Directions

Palm Springs International Airport is virtually in the city centre and all you have to do is to drive west from the airport along East Ramon Road and you’ll be in the centre in minutes.


Palm Springs Airport Parking

There are a lot of parking spaces at Palm Springs International Airport. You can use the cell phone lot for quick pick-ups or the short and long term parking areas, both charged at the same rates until after 24 hours. There are no easy access spaces for less mobile drivers who should drop off at the front of the terminal and seek assistance if necessary from the parking lots.

Palm Springs Info

Palm Springs is one of California’s playground cities having dozens of golf courses and many opportunities for tennis, swimming and cycling in the city. The climate is perfect for the outdoors life although it can get a little oppressive in summer.
Palm Springs began as a coaching station in 1862 and was initially called Palmetto Spring. The railroad replaced the coach and the name changed to Palm Springs. The rise of the film industry led to the city being adopted as a second home by many Hollywood stars encouraging more people to relocate to the desert resort.
