1. To avoid epic traffic jams in Los Angeles, avoid driving in the two rush hours of each weekday (7am to 9am and 3.30pm to 6pm).
2. If your car doesn’t have GPS it’ll be worthwhile hiring one – the freeways of Los Angeles can be confusing for first timers.
3. Before you opt for car hire in Los Angeles, check if your hotel has free parking. Motels and cheaper hotels in Los Angeles usually have free parking, while upmarket places tend to charge for the privilege. Streets in all commercial areas are metered, and many residential streets near commercial areas require parking permits.
