Useful information on Los Angeles and rental cars

Los Angeles in Southern California is the second biggest city in the United States by population, and is a center of international trade, business, entertainment and culture. L.A. is an important economic power, and the city includes the famous “Hollywood” district, with its movie, television and music corporations.

Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, and Hertz operate car rental lots all over the city. You can find and compare prices of the cheapest vehicles from any one of the major car hire suppliers when you book with VroomVroomVroom.  Once you've picked up your car rental Los Angeles, you're free to fight the traffic and explore the vast metropolis or you might just choose to hit the freeway and visit one of the other great cities in California. There are at least half a dozen big cities (population over 200 thousand) within an hour or two of driving in your car rental.

Glendale (6 miles away) and Long Beach (20 miles) are often considered L.A. suburbs, and Anaheim (the home of Disneyland! - 24 miles) and Santa Ana (30 miles) aren't that much further. Besides Anaheim, the most popular road trip from Los Angeles might be to San Diego, which is about 120 miles or about a 2-hour drive away via Los Angeles car rental!

Will you arrive in Los Angeles via LAX?

Flying into Los Angeles International Airport (most commonly known by its designation LAX) is the #1 way to reach L.A. for travelers.

Owned and operated by the City of Los Angeles, LAX began as a general aviation field in 1928, and served as a wartime flight hub before opening to commercial airlines in 1946.

It is now the 3rd busiest airport in the country and the 6th busiest worldwide, serving more than 61 million passengers in 2011.

The airport's central complex (or “Central Terminal Area”) has nine passenger terminals. They are connected by a two-level roadway with baggage claim on the lower level. Free shuttle service is provided between all terminals and remote parking lots.  

What you need to know when renting a car at the airport

There are many rental car companies operating out of LAX, with all Los Angeles car rental sites located off the airport. Most of the companies provide travelers with phones in or near the baggage claim areas on each terminal's lower level, so you can call for a free shuttle to pick up and transport you to get your vehicle.

The airport allows the major rental car companies – including Avis, Budget and Hertz – to pick up and drop off their customers at the terminal via courtesy shuttle. These meet arriving travelers under purple Rental Car Shuttle signs on the islands outside baggage claim.

Dozens of other car rental Los Angeles companies can be reached using the phones we mentioned earlier! Just look for the “Visitors Information Centers” in the baggage claim areas. Then you can use a free LAX shuttle bus to get to the Off-Airport Rental Car Terminal and meet your car hire courtesy shuttle. Customers board the shuttle buses on the islands under the blue signs.  If you're visiting by plane, check out our LAX car rental page for more information regarding booking via the airport.

All About Los Angeles, the home of "Hollywood" and movie stars...

los angeles downtown

Los Angeles in Southern California is the second biggest city in the United States by population, and the center of North America's third largest metropolitan area (behind Mexico City and New York City). As a center of international trade, business, entertainment and culture, Los Angeles is a rich economic power with worldwide importance. 

It's also the city that includes the famous "Hollywood" district, with its movie, television and music corporations. The "City of Angels" is known as a very ethnically diverse metropolis, with its Spanish name – "Los Angeles" means "The Angels" – and its history as a part of nearby Mexico from 1821 to 1848. Some residents call themselves "Angelenos".

Los Angeles was founded in 1781 by the Spanish, was a Mexican holding after Mexico's War of Independence, and was finally sold to the United States in 1848. California became a state two years later. Los Angeles hosted the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics.

Here are some activities for music & museum lovers!

There are many interesting and fun activities in Los Angeles, and with your car rental from VroomVroomVroom it's easy to experience a lot of them when you're in L.A.!

Los angeles street

Drive your rental car over to the Getty Center in Central Los Angeles. Located at 1200 Getty Center Drive, it's the most popular art museum in the city, and features a spectacular collection that includes works by Cezanne, Monet and Van Gogh, spread throughout its architecturally stunning six buildings and gardens!

If you're a fan of classic music – and especially if you would call yourself a music connoisseur – then by all means, take the car rental you've booked using VroomVroomVroom down to 135 N. Grand Avenue for a symphony performance of the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. You may never experience a more crisp, clean sound from a musical performance, because the Disney Hall boasts the most acoustically sophisticated design of any building on Earth!

The Griffith Observatory is another must-visit attraction in Los Angeles. Your affordable car rental will give you the ability to zip over to Observatory Road (at the end of Vermont Avenue), where you will find the observatory inside the 4,000-acre Griffith Park. (Note: When you visit the observatory, you can drive your rental car directly to it and park for free in its lot.) This free public planetarium has the best views of the Los Angeles basin, and offers exhibits and public telescopes, as well as a bookstore and a café for souvenirs.

Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is another attraction where you can spend a quiet afternoon. Located at 5905 Wilshire Boulevard in Central Los Angeles, the museum has been displaying famous works and educating L.A. art lovers since 1965. Proud of its ethnically diverse collections (numbering over 100 thousand total pieces), the museum features European, American, Latin American and Asian art, as well as an adjacent contemporary art museum called “BCAM”. You can take a free tour and even catch a film or concert at this world-class art lover's paradise.

If you've used VroomVroomVroom to compare car rental rates and find the affordable vehicle that you want to drive around Los Angeles, you're going to love taking it for a drive over to the California Science Center. The center, which can be found at 700 Exposition Park Drive, features over a hundred interactive science exhibits, and since 2012 is home to Space Shuttle Orbiter Endeavour. The shuttle is to be the crown jewel of the science museum's new Air and Space Center, a 200 thousand-square-foot expansion to the main building.
