Essential Information for travelling to Palm Springs
What's the best time to visit Palm Springs?
The stunning weather makes Palm Springs a year-round destination for lovers of heat. We recommend visiting from January to April as the temperatures still soar but are more hospitable than the summer months, when they can reach triple digits.
Do I need a visa?
Currently, many British citizens traveling on a valid, individual machine readable or e-passport, with a return or onward ticket, and who are staying for less than 90 days, qualify for the Visa Waiver Program. This means they can travel visa-free with only an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).
Palm Springs Flight Information
To visit Palm Springs, you can fly from Heathrow (LHR) to Palm Springs International (PSP) in around 15 hours, including a stopover. Or you can fly direct to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) from Heathrow (LHR) in around 11 hours, and transfer to Palm Springs in 2 hours.
