Simply wait there to be collected and transported straight to the car lot, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The minimum age for renting a car in Los Angeles is 25 (reduced to 20 on payment of an Age Differential Charge). You will need to present your full and valid drivers licence along with an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) where appropriate. You will also need your credit or debit card and, where you have booked in advance, your reservation details.
