Los Angeles has long been a destination for individuals and families alike. From the glitter of Hollywood to the beaches of Santa Monica to the nonstop festivities of Disneyland, L.A. has it all. For a visitor to take in even a portion of all Los Angeles has to offer, getting a rental car is the way to go. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location
If you're arriving in Los Angeles by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies that serve Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, Payless, National, and Thrifty are the only car rental companies allowed to pick up and drop off their customers at the different terminals. Customers of other car rental companies must take an airport shuttle bus to the Off-Airport Rental Car Terminal to meet their rental car company’s shuttle. Expedia also provides maps of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)


Picking the rental car that's right for you
Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, vans and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Los Angeles, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing
Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
