Top tips for renting a car in Long Beach

  • Ditch the unreliable public transportation and hop on a hire car, which is most comfortable and efficient way to explore not only Long Beach, but also neighboring Los Angeles and other destinations along the Californian coast. Head to El Dorado Nature Reserve for a picnic date, or drive through beautiful Naples Island in Alamitos Bay. The iconic Hollywood Sign is 30 miles away from Long Beach, and San Diego is a 2-hour ride away.
  • The two closest international airports from Long Beach are Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and John Wayne International Airport (SNA). hire car offices at LAX are off site, but you can take the free shuttle buses stopping under the "hire Car Shuttles" sign outside the Arrivals Level islands. Car hire services at SNA are situated on the Arrivals hall, between Terminals A and B, across from the John Wayne statue. The domestic Long Beach Airport (LGB) is closer but much smaller. Car hire desks can be found inside the Airport Ground Transportation Center, which is on the opposite side the terminal building.
  • The city of Long Beach is quite straightforward to navigate -- just watch out for reckless tourists during the summer months when the city center is more crowded. The stretch from Belmont Shore beach to downtown Long Beach has a sidewalk designed for cyclists, rollerbladers, and walkers, so be extra careful when driving there. Many LA freeways have one or more "carpool lanes" at the far left for vehicles carrying at least two occupants.
  • Traffic jams in the Los Angeles area are a given, but there are ways around them. Avoid driving from Long Beach to LA, particularly toward Hollywood, between 6:30 a.m. and 10 a.m., and then back to Long Beach between 3 p.m. until about 6:30 p.m. as those are the main rush hours. The San Diego Freeway (I-405) runs toward LA and Long Beach Airport, but you can take Crenshaw Blvd to help bypass the downtown gridlock during peak hour.
  • Book your rental car in Long Beach at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
