 when I went a few yrs ago I flew into SLC and drove from there via Idaho

if you think car rentals are bad , I take it you havent even looked at hotels yet. Best time is no different than Alaska either right before the summer or right afterwards

I was there and think 5 days is a bit too long 3-4 days is sufficient for the parks and if you are flying back from slc or den or dont mind the drive then you should go to flaming gorge recreation area it is gorgeous

Once your driving, consider Glacier National Park in Montana as well.

 only prob is Id say its 400+ miles from West Yellowstone to Kalispell, true the main thing is driving the Road to the sun road, but I would want to spend alittle more time up there especially by the ever disappearing glaciers

 I would make Glacier a trip by itself and from there also Banff and Lake Louise and fly into Calgary

Both times I went I drove from the East coast so I don't know much about flying there... I know you can also fly to Cody wyoming, It's definitely farther but might work out better. (If you are in Cody check out the night rodeo, it's a lot of fun)

If you're not planning on doing any serious hiking you don't need more then a day there. (OK, in August 2 days. There's so many people and so much traffic it can take an entire day just to drive across the park)

If you have a choice between Yellowstone and Glacier go to Glacier.
