Car Rentals, Los Angeles: 28 reviews and 10 photos

Most people come to Los Angeles through LAX. And, unfortunately, our public transportation system is not that great. The best alternative to getting around is renting a car. Please be aware that here and any state in the US, the car rental daily charge is significantly more expensive if you do not return the rental to the same location you rented from. This charge is applicable for each day you rent no matter where you are going.

So, if you plan to rent a car in LA and want to hang out for 3-4 days before driving down to San Diego or up to San Francisco and dropping the car off, I suggest making two separate reservations. One for just staying in LA and return it to the same rental office. And, second reservation at a different rental office to drive to your next destination where you will be dropping off your car. If you plan to stay in the next town for 3-4 days, I suggest a third reservation and rent the car for the same location return for those days.

The expense is almost double and in some cases even more than double during holiday weekends.
