Los Angeles average daily maximum temperature

Los Angeles' urban sprawl is the heart of west coast living. Huge highways choked with famous traffic jams meet glamorous greenery of high-gated mansions in Beverly Hills, contrasted again with the towering skyscrapers in the financial district and the sun soaked boulevards of Santa Monica.

Hiring A Car In Los Angeles

Nobody walks anywhere in LA so cheap Los Angeles car hire is a must. You can arrange to pick up car hire from Los Angeles Airport with ease and as long as you plan your travelling to avoid rush hours it should be easy to navigate the city without getting trapped in too much congestion.

Places To Visit In Los Angeles

You can enjoy cheap holidays in Los Angeles and still see the best that the city has to offer. There are cheap Los Angeles hotels throughout the city but you will need to organise car hire. Los Angeles' big draws such as Disney Land, Universal Studios and Hollywood's walk of fame all attract millions of visitors each year, but they are spread out, so you'll need car hire in Las Vegas to visit them all. Many people choose to pick up a star map and find out where their favourite actors live whilst others head to the beach or onto Santa Monica pier for fun in the sun.

General Advice on Hiring a Car

When you purchase car hire you are entering into a contract with your car hire company. Always check their terms and conditions before you buy to make sure you're aware of your responsibilities when you collect your car in Los Angeles, and any additional charges.


Here's a few things to watch out for:

  • Almost all car hire companies add a mandatory fee for drivers under the age of 25.
  • Check what level of insurance is included for the hire car in Los Angeles. In particular check how much the excess is (the amount you need to pay in the event of any accident) you may want to take out additional insurance.
  • Check what the fuel policy is with your car. Don't forget to fill up the tank before you drop it off if you've agreed to return it full!
  • Find out if there's a maximum daily mileage - especially if you're planning to do a lot of driving in Los Angeles!
  • You'll need to pay a deposit (or pre-approve one) to pick up the car. Most car rental companies will only accept credit cards for this.
