Location information for Los Angeles


The development of Los Angeles began with the completion of the transcontinental railway in 1876. It is now a very expansive city, the largest one in the state of California. Sometimes it may take two hours to get from one part of the city to another. L.A., as the city is often referred to, is a collection of suburbs. Downtown, there are still some old buildings, in an interesting mix with brand new offices. At night, this part of the city is virtually deserted. However, a visit to Disneyworld, the Hollywood studios, Beverly Hills and the new Paul Getty museum is very interesting. If you want to go out or shop, the old part of Pasadena is your best choice.


The municipality of Los Angeles has almost 4 million inhabitants, although in the larger urban area surrounding the city, there are at least 15 million inhabitants.
The population is very mixed. Initially, the city was populated by adventurers that had moved to the west coast of the US. Nowadays, there are also immigrants from Latin America ('Hispanics') and from other countries around the Pacific Ocean (East and South-East Asia).


Los Angeles is located on the west coast of the United States, on the Pacific Ocean, about 150 kilometres to the north-west of the border with Mexico. The city has grown together with other cities like Long Beach, Pasadena and even with the far more easterly San Bernardino.
It is sometimes hard to tell what belongs to the city and what is not. For example: Hollywood is a part of Los Angeles, but West-Hollywood and nearby Beverly Hills are separate municipalities.
To the north of the city are the San Gabriel Mountains, off the coast are the virtually uninhabited Channel Islands. Five of these islands form a national park.


The city has a very diverse economy, important elements of which are international trade, the entertainment industry (film, television and music), aviation, oil and tourism. The combine ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are especially important to trade with countries on the Pacific Rim. Together they form the country's biggest port.
A part of the economy is invisible, or 'black'. Many immigrants (especially from Mexico) are illegally in the United States, and are therefore forced to work illegally.


Los Angeles has no fewer than five airports. Most people fly to Los Angeles International (LAX), which maintains connections with all major cities in the world, and of course the US itself. The airport is located 24 kilometres to the south-west of the city centre. The airport cannot be reached by public transport, but there are shuttle buses from and to the metro stations of Aviation and Union.

Other airports are Long Beach Airport, Bob Hope (Burbank) Airport, Orange County/John Wayne Airport (for Disneyland and the beaches of Orange County) and Ontario airport, located further to the east.

Public transport

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) provides the public transport in the city. There is an extensive bus network - which, like cars - are often stuck in traffic. Buses that operate under the name 'Metro Rapid' are an exception. These buses have right of way everywhere and move between the best-known places in Los Angeles.
For visitors to the city, the metro or the lightrail offer the best form of public transport. There are five lines and plans to further expand two of these lines. The metro used to have a bad reputation because of its many technical failures, but in recent years the system has been improved enormously.

Regional trains depart from the historical Union Station downtown. The fast long distance buses operated by Greyhound depart from the bus terminal on East 7th Avenue. This terminal is far removed from any sights worth seeing and it is not very safe - especially at night.

Traffic and Parking

The city has an extensive though very complicated network of highways. Twenty-seven highways run through the city, whith many unequal crossings where it is easy to take a wrong turn. We recommend buying a detailed roadmap of Los Angeles and preparing yourself well before going anywhere near the city. The roads are often overcrowded; many car drivers spend many hours a day in traffic jams. Downtown, there are many one-way streets.

Parking in the street is paid. You can pay by telephone: you dial a special number (listed on the parking meters) and provide your credit card number. However, you are not allowed to pay longer that the maximum allowed time. Clean ('hybrid') cars can park for free anywhere in the city. The car has to have a special sticker.

Cars that are parked where or when they shouldn't are towed away.


Choose a hotel that is closest to the destination you want to visit, or else you will first spend hours in traffic. There are a huge number of hotels in Los Angeles: from very simple budget accommodations to hyper-luxurious 5 star hotels, and anything in between. Generally speaking, the areas in the south and east of Los Angeles are considered of a lower quality; the better neighborhoods (and hotels) are located in the west. Ask whether or not the hotel includes parking facilities before you book a room.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
