Of course, this city has more going on such as its professional sports and burgeoning art scene.

We work with some of the top companies, like Thrifty, because they are well-known for their successful track record in providing customers with the best vehicles on the road. We can help you and your trip get off without a hitch.
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But getting your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Los Angeles is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Los Angeles. For bigger cities, like Los Angeles, you may find navigating and parking easier in a smaller car. Commute times in Los Angeles average 43 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. If you are wanting to get the most out of your trip near Los Angeles's coast, then you can rent for a convertible to enjoy some top-down driving.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Thrifty. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Los Angeles is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to be concerned about your mileage limits if you are planning to spend a day at the beach or root on the home team.
Thrifty usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different Thrifty. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Los Angeles, having access to your own automobile can come in handy. When you're ready to discover more of California, you can go wherever you like, without trying to signal for a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
