Traffic Information

Traffic Information

When you arrive at Los Angeles International Airport take the shuttle bus that stops at terminals one to seven to the car rental area. The A405 links the airport to the city just a few minutes drive away. We also have a desk at the Renaissance Airport Hotel. Our Beverly Hills office is on La Cienega Boulevard near Culver City while the Venice Beach branch is near Pacific Avenue and the Marina del Rey. There are two Santa Monica offices, one in the lobby of the Shore Hotel near the Pier Aquarium and one on Santa Monica Boulevard.

Los Angeles is a large and busy city intersected by numerous freeways. Individual districts have roads laid out in numbered grid plans and in peak hours and at weekends journeys are often faster if these roads are used rather than the freeways. A Sat Nav is almost essential for navigating Los Angeles without getting lost.

Parking is Los Angeles varies from free street zones and expensive hourly meters to underground or multistorey parks with reasonable daily rates. Be careful not to park in a residential permit zone.

Like many large American cities, public transport in Los Angeles is limited meaning just about everybody drives so start your visit with a cruise around the city in your rental vehicle. This is the ideal way to get an overview of Los Angeles and its eight main districts. The city's historical heart is Olvera Street where the first Spanish-Mexican village was built in the late 18th-century. Here you can visit the oldest building in Los Angeles as well as enjoy traditional Mexican food. Close to Olvera Street is the 19th and early 20th-century area of downtown Los Angeles. The impressive City Hall, brick-built homes and old movie palaces can all be seen here. Further North in the city is the Heritage Square Museum which documents the development of Southern California. Film buffs can take guided tours of the city's Hollywood past, taking in film locations and studios including Universal City. The city also abounds in museums and art galleries catering to every interest.

One museum with a difference is the La Brea Tar Pits just off Miracle Mile. This is unique for being the only urban, active Ice Age excavation site in the world. Tar has seeped through the ground, rising to the surface over tens of thousands of years while trapping and preserving the remains of plants and animals. Many of the fossils recovered are on display in the Page Museum where you can see the remains of mammoths, wolves and sabre-toothed cats. A fascinating part of the tour is walking along the edge of the pits where tar is still bubbling up exposing new fossils every day.

Highly recommend SIXT rent a car. Holidaying in the USA from Australia we left the car rental until the last minute and these guys were amazing. Lovely modern affordable cars so we felt safe driving from L.A to Vegas. Staff on both ends were 10/10. Really nice people, did their job really well I will only use these guys now wherever I can when travelling. Thankyou so much
