I really need some help. I’m a motion graphics artist who lives in Dayton Ohio, and my industry is in California. I have two friends who live in CA - one in San Francisco and one in San Diego, but I need to get to them so I can check out the cities. I need to make the least expensive flight plan that allows me to visit both cities in California and then return home. A friend mentioned JetBlue to me, but they only fly to and from San Diego; not San Francisco or anywhere in Ohio. So I think that is out. I also considered flying to one of the cities then renting a car to commute to the other one (a long drive, I realize), then fly home from the second city, but as I understand it, it is extremely expensive to rent a car one way. The other problem with that is the cost of buying two sets of airline tickets; one from Dayton to CA city #1, and another from CA city #2 back to Dayton...I don’t think I can plan round trip flight to one city and out of a completely different city. Or at least I have never heard of it, and I don’t see it as an option on Travelocity or Expedia.
As you can see I’m quite lost. Any help is greatly appreciated. My future depends on it!
