Flying Los Angeles-San Francisco

One option for driving the most popular stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway is to fly in to Los Angeles or San Francisco, book a one-way car rental airport to airport, and fly back from the other end. However, one-way car rentals are usually more expensive, incurring a drop fee, and it may be cheaper to drive back on the faster Interstate.
