Find Your Way Around Los Angeles Airport

Los Angeles is one of California’s prized jewels, a destination unto itself. You can stay here for weeks and not see everything it has to offer. Next time you fly to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), ensure you get to the places you want to see—without waiting for buses and taxis—when you reserve a cheap LAX car rental.

Pick Up Your Car at the Airport

Follow the signage to your terminal’s Baggage Claim, collect your bags, and step outside. This is where you will meet the rental car company shuttles, which will take you to your preferred car rental provider within 5 to 15 minutes. While the rental car companies have representatives and kiosks on the airport property, the vehicles are all located on off-site lots. LAX is only 16 miles from downtown Los Angeles, so you’ll be on your way to fun in the California sun shortly.

Out & About in LA

Soak up some SoCal culture when you drive 12 miles northwest to Santa Monica. Famous for its pier, you can ride the Ferris wheel, fish off the pier, and watch the surfers do their best to “get barreled” in the morning sunshine. From there, head 7 miles east on I-10 to Rodeo Drive, a beautiful area to walk around in, and one of the area’s premier shopping districts. Go window shopping, splurge on a souvenir for yourself, or try to spot a movie star.
Southern California is a driving state, which means your LAX rental car is your key to getting around. Why not see more of the area? Twenty-eight miles south of Los Angeles is Seal Beach, where you can walk on the pier and do some eating and shopping on Main Street. Additionally, if you’re visiting LA with the kids, bring them to Disneyland®, which is located in the city of Anaheim, about 25 miles south of the downtown area.

Returning Your Car Rental & Enjoying the Airport

When you’re ready to head home, return your rental car to its company. The shuttle will bring you back to LAX terminals. Should you wish to take a more direct route to the airport, you can book a one-way car rental, drop the vehicle off at a location close to your hotel, and then take a taxi to LAX. Additionally, if you’ve rented your vehicle from an off-site agency, you may need to make additional arrangements to get to the tarmac.
When the airport was founded in 1928, it was named Mines Field, and had only one hangar. Today, LAX has nine terminals and is one of the busiest airports in the world, serving millions of passengers and more than 60 airlines. If you have some time to relax before your flight, browse the duty free shops or pick up a book or magazine at one of the newsstands. You may also want to sip a cup of tea, get a cookie for the flight, or enjoy a deli sandwich during your downtime. The airport has also set up several art exhibits throughout the terminals for visitors to admire.
