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!

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.
