Los Angeles (LAX)



90045 Los Angeles, United States

Los Angeles is a vast city spread out over a wide area, so visitors often explore by car. In fact, a hire car will be useful as soon as you leave Los Angeles Airport (commonly known as LAX), 16 miles (26km) from Downtown Los Angeles. People flying into LAX are well-placed to explore other areas of California, such as Santa Barbara, Huntington Beach and even San Diego.

We help many visitors find and compare cheap car hire deals, from a number of car hire companies, on a range of cars (including convertible and luxury vehicles).

Getting a great deal

We compare prices from all the major car hire companies at Los Angeles Airport (including Alamo, Dollar and Thrifty) to give you exclusive car hire deals.

We also ask each customer to rate and review their rental experience (from the overall condition of the car to the time it took to pick up and drop off the vehicle) — giving you honest, impartial advice that will help you decide who to rent with. You can see their feedback next to each car on our site.

Book your Los Angeles Airport car hire with us to ensure you get the right car at a great price.

Choice of cars

You will find plenty of cars at the airport, from economy and compact cars (like the Hyundai Accent and the Ford Focus, respectively) right through to SUVs and 12-seater people carriers. The range also includes convertible cars, similar to the Ford Mustang Cabrio.

Finding your perfect hire car has never been easier: simply use the filters on the search results page to narrow down the cars based on your individual needs. You can filter cars by supplier, rating, pick-up location, fuel policy, size and specific features (such as air conditioning and automatic transmission). We explain exactly what is included upfront, so you can make an informed choice.

Tips and advice

  • 1
    The majority of the car hire companies are based on the Aviation Boulevard.
  • 2
    Allow an hour to drive from Los Angeles Airport to the Downtown area, as the roads can be very congested — the quietest time to drive is between 11pm and 5am.
  • 3
    Los Angeles has an extensive freeway system which criss-crosses the whole county. The freeways can be confusing for novice drivers, so you might want to request a GPS to help you find your way around.
  • 4
    Make sure you book a car with air conditioning to keep you comfortable in the heat.
  • 5
    To avoid extra fuel charges, book a car with a full-to-full fuel policy. Simply refill the tank just before you drop the car off and you won’t pay a penny extra.
