Los Angeles airport Q&A

Where are the car hire desks?

Desks are located off the main airport site, but car hire companies operate shuttle services to their vehicle terminals. Once you've picked up your luggage, look for purple rental car signs outside baggage reclaim in the arrivals hall and hop on your free bus to the car hire desks.

What should I buy at duty free?

You've breathed the same air as Hollywood hotshots, so why not smell like them? Pick up celebrity scents at the perfumery, as worn by P Diddy, David Beckham, Elizabeth Taylor and more!

Are there any cashpoints?

You'll find cash machines all over Los Angeles airport, on both the upper and lower floors of Terminals 1-8 and the Tom Bradley International Terminal.

Where's the best place to eat?

From burgers and pizzas to fine cuisine, there's a lot of lip-smacking fare on offer at LAX. Where you eat might well depend on which terminal you're flying from, but one thing is for sure - you won't go hungry! Highlights include the architecturally quirky, space-age Encounter Restaurant, which offers sweeping views of the airport.

The secret tip

If you need to travel between the nine terminals at LAX and have lots of luggage with you then your best bet is to hop on a shuttle bus. However, if you are travelling light it might be quicker to walk. The horseshoe-shaped arrangement of the terminals means distance between buildings is kept to a minimum.
