Carmel to Oakland Airport

If I have a 1pm flight out of Oakland on a Monday, what time should I

leave Carmel - also have a rental car return.

You will hit traffic on 101 N and 880 N during rush hour so it may be better to leave around 9 or so as it is a 2 hour drive and that should give you enough time to get to OAK as that airport is relatively small.

Is it better to fly out of Oakland or SFO?

Better in what sense ? Driving time ? That should not be the issue. It will be easier to get via 280 to SFO than Oakland but that should not be a factor for a 1pm flight.

Non Stops -- SFO has more. Flight Delays -- greater chance of delays getting in and out of SFO. Cheaper flight ? Depends on when you are flying and your route.

Cheaper Car rental -- Again you need to shop around and see
