Wait for the Budget shuttle beneath the sign. You can expect a Budget shuttle approximately every 5-10 minutes. Please make sure to board the correct shuttle, as the others will take you to different rental car facilities.

For after hour returns, place completed contract and keys in the returns drop box.

Picking the right rental car depends upon what you want to do in the LA area. Options range from passenger vans, suv rental, or even luxury car rentals. No matter the size of your group or your destination plans, Budget has the right LAX car rental for you.

Van Rental

Don’t risk getting split up in LA traffic. If you’re traveling with a crowd, you’ll want to consider our passenger van rental options. Each van can fit up to 12 or 15 passengers.

Families with small children will enjoy our minivan rental choices, which are perfect to reach amusement parks like Universal Hollywood or Disneyland.

Long-Term Car Rental

LA is a major hub for so many industries such as entertainment, manufacturing, apparel, and more, which brings a lot of long-term travel to the area for both business and leisure. We offer monthly car rental at the Los Angeles airport to accommodate your long-term travel plans.

Luxury Car Rental

Take advantage of LA’s beautiful weather in one of our convertible car rentals, and enjoy the city and surrounding area with the top down. Check out Palos Verdes Drive, Angeles Crest Highway, or Mulholland Drive for incredible views you’ll never forget.

General Directions
COUNTER: **Airline Passengers** Exit the baggage claim area & look for the purple sign marked: "Rental Car Shuttles" suspended from the ceiling on the island across the way. The Budget shuttle will arrive every 5 - 10 minutes. The shuttle takes you to the rental facility at 9775 Airport Blvd. (At LAX, Avis & Budget are in separate facilities, so the customer must take the Budget shuttle to the Budget facility. The Avis shuttle only goes to the Avis facility.)
**Local Renters** From the 405 Fwy, exit on Century Blvd & turn west for 1 mile. Turn right onto Airport Blvd. Budget is on the left. NOTE: No customer parking is available on the Budget lot. Customers arriving by car need to park in the paid public areas.
CARS: Located outside the rental facility.
RETURNS: Same as pick-up.
When you arrive, proceed to the courtesy bus pick-up area. Inform the Budget bus driver that you are a Drivers Circle member. The manager or key person will have your contract ready and personally escort you to your vehicle.
After-hours Returns
Park & lock the car. Place the completed contract & the keys in the Drop Box located in the Returns area. Remember to take your personal belongings with you.
