Top tips for hiring a car in Los Angeles

  • Get ready to explore the dazzling sights of Los Angeles on the road trip of a lifetime. When you rent a car on your vacation, you will enjoy the freedom of discovering each corner of the city at your own pace. Rather than relying on public transport, opt for a hire car to easily navigate this sprawling city. Don’t miss the beaches, never-ending boulevards, or the Hollywood Hills -- all easily reached by car.
  • If you are flying into Los Angeles International Airport, you need to be aware that all the hire car companies are off-site. When you land, you will need to exit your terminal and use the courtesy shuttles. Your first option for your pickup is to go to the Lower/Arrivals Level islands outside baggage claim and wait by the "hire Car Shuttles" sign. Alternatively, you can go to the LAX Shuttle Airline Connection and take a shuttle bus to the Remote hire Car Depot.
  • Driving in Los Angeles can be challenging due to the city’s infamous traffic. Therefore, as a visitor, you should look out for Carpool and High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes. You will be able to spot these designated lanes on most of LA’s freeways. Whilst HOV lanes are found on the far left, you can spot a Carpool lane from the diamond painted on the road. To use these lanes, you must have at least 2 people in the car.
  • During weekdays, rush hour in Los Angeles starts between 5:00 am and 10:00 am. In the afternoon the roads are busy from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, although you should avoid driving on a Friday. You can also expect heavy traffic on weekend evenings, especially in or out of downtown and Hollywood. The best way to avoid traffic is to stick to driving through the connecting neighborhoods. Thankfully, the city is set out in a grid, so you have a variety of options for crossing town.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Los Angeles for £25 or less
  • Book your car hire in Los Angeles at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport car hire locations in Los Angeles are around 14% more expensive than airport locations on average
