Fly Drive Holidays in California

California could well be the ultimate destination for a road trip and there is a vast array of different routes, all combining phenomenal landscapes and exciting cities.

If you are just looking for great value flights and car hire here then we are happy to help but our fly drive holidays in California offer so much more than just that.
Our California fly drives have been designed to include all of the famous highlights and some of the best kept secrets too with easy driving days and carefully selected hotels included along the way.

They are also completely flexibility so you can change just about any aspect or even create your own holiday if you prefer.
Choose Your Hotel
We have suggested great value hotels from San Francisco to San Diego and lodges throughout the national parks in our fly drive holidays in California but you can choose any of our featured hotels.
