Car hire at Los Angeles airport

The car hire service is available at counters outside the airport building and can be reached by free shuttle bus. In the baggage pick-up area or in the arrivals hall you will find telephones that can be used to order the shuttle bus from your car hire company to the terminal exit. The bus stops of the shuttle buses are marked by purple-coloured signs with the inscription "Hired Car Shuttle". Some smaller hired car companies do not have a counter at Los Angeles Airport (LAX). Customers need to hire their car in advance. The providers bring the booked hired car directly to the exit of the respective terminal at your arrival so that the customer saves time and can start driving directly from the terminals. If you hire a car cheaply before your departure via, you will find out in your travel documents where exactly you have to pick up the hired car.

Car hire at Los Angeles Airport: drive into the city

The airport is located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, close to the Pacific coast and about 25 kilometres from the city centre. The city centre of L. A. can, therefore, be reached from the airport by hired car in about half an hour to one hour, depending on the volume of traffic. Traffic jams and heavy traffic are frequent in Los Angeles, especially in rush hour traffic between 7:00 am and 10:00 am and between 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Therefore, you should plan enough time for your journey with the hired car to and from the airport. From the pick-up station at the airport, take Interstate 405, which takes you directly from the airport to the city by car.

What are the options for my hired car?


Mietwagen Versicherung

With the right insurance through California

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hired car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Los Angeles.

One-way rental

For those who want to do a road trip to Los Angeles with a hired car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hired car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location. This is particularly useful if you are heading for cities that are far away from each other, such as San Diego, Las Vegas or San Francisco. 

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hired car. Distances in California are often very long. If only one person drives the hired car, this can be quite exhausting. So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.

Safe journey with the SUV

Do you travel to Los Angeles with friends or family and have a lot of baggage? Then it's best to hire a minivan. In this minivan, you should have no space problems. If you want to drive a lot through the terrain, you can hire an SUV. In this way, you will never get stuck. If, on the other hand, you need a hired car for the city, we recommend a small car. It is manoeuvrable and fits into even the smallest parking space. As you can see, everyone will find what they are looking for on If you want to adapt the car even more to your wishes, you can also select the options all-wheel drive, air conditioning or automatic.
