Los Angeles Airport

Airport Car Hire

Hire a car at Los Angeles Airport! Then head to the city and explore some of L.A.’s most iconic neighborhoods—Hollywood, Bel Air, and Beverly Hills. Drive the full length of Mulholland Drive, and take a Universal Studios Hollywood tour to learn about the movie industry.

Check out the attractions and street performers at Venice Beach, or drive your rental to the famous Santa Monica or Malibu beaches. Back in the city enjoy the delicious food at Mexican, Ethiopian, Armenian, and Korean restaurants and the distinct culture of each neighborhood where they’re located.

Los Angeles Airport is roughly the size of eight mid-sized American airports combined. 45,000 people work here. Also, while LAX is the airport’s international code, it is also how the locals call it, pronouncing it “Ehlay X.”

L.A.’s a great destination, but the surrounding regions have more to offer, so why not get a longer-term car rental? There’s a lot to explore in California—mountains, desert, the Napa Valley wine country, and cities like San Francisco and San Diego. You can drive to nearby Las Vegas or discover the Pacific Northwest. You can even pick up your car at Los Angeles Airport and drop it off in a different city. Start planning your adventure now!

For this privilege, the companies must charge a Customer Facility Charge that will be used to fund a consolidated car hire center in the near future.

Nearest petrol station

There are many gas stations near LAX. Which is the most convenient depends on which rental company you are returning a car to. If returning a car to one of the companies located along Century Blvd., then there are at least four stations after the exit from the 405. Of these, the Chevron station closest to the Interstate is the most expensive.

Those renting from a company located north of Century Blvd. will find many stations along Manchester Ave. Note that the ARCO station at the corner of W Arbor Vitae St. and Aviation Blvd. should be avoided due to its significantly higher prices.
