Car Rentals, Los Angeles: 28 reviews and 10 photos

If you're coming to Los Angeles, you need to rent a car. I know it's expensive, but there's just no other way to see the city properly.

Los Angeles has no efficient public transportation... the subway only covers a very small portion of the city-- and probably none of the places you want to see. There are buses, but you'll need to make multiple connections to get places and it's going to take a long time. There are taxis, but you need to call for them in advance because you won't see them just driving down the street. This isn't New York... taxis don't do big business here.

Renting a car is really the only reasonable way to get around. It's the best way to see this sprawling, spread-out city and all that it has to offer. I highly suggest that you bite the bullet and just do it. You'll be glad you did!

All the major car rental agencies (including Hertz, Alamo, Budget, Avis, etc...) have locations at the airport.
