    Los Angeles Airport Car Rental

    Airport Car Rental

    Get your rental 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!

    Car rental desks

    All car rental desks are located away from the airport's terminals. Advantage, Alamo, Dollar, Fox, National, Sixt, and Thrifty are allowed to pick-up and drop-off their customers at the terminals. Each has its own shuttle that will take you to their rental location. For this privilege, the companies must charge a Customer Facility Charge that will be used to fund a consolidated rental car center in the near future.

    All other rental companies are required to pick-up their passengers from the Remote Rental Depot. This means the customers of these companies must take to shuttles to reach the rental locations. At the airport, the customers should take the Economy Lot E shuttle.

    Services and facilities

    Los Angeles Airport offers nearly as many opportunities to dine, shop, relax, and be entertained as the city itself. All terminals have countless bars, restaurants, and cafeterias, as well as shops and stores. There are banks, currency exchange offices, ATMs, and business facilities. You’ll also find many lounges, medical facilities, spas, beauty services, a lost and found office, and the Flight Path Museum. There is no luggage storage service. The airport offers assistance to travelers with reduced mobility, but you should contact your airline in advance if you’d like this service. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

    Nearest gas 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.

    I drove out of Los Angeles into suburbs east of Los Angeles. Overall, driving was easy, just about like anywhere else.

    I am used to LA as i lived there. Most rental places involve a bunch of standing around waiting. Usually they switch you to another car other than what you asked for. At Advantage I got the car I wanted and was out the door in less than 15 minutes and drop off was super fast in less than 5 minutes and I had my email receipt in the shuttle on the way to the airport. The shuttle drivers are super nice and so helpful.

    The only disadvantages of renting car in California in general are high costs of gas in this state. If you rent a car at the airport, be prepared to pay some additional tax.

    LAX is too far from anything I ever need to do when I travel to the area, so rental car is a must. Traffic and car travel is expensive and difficult, but necessary. Don't trust mass transit or alternative means of transportation on the ground.
