THRIFTY Car Rental Services at LAX Airport

Official LAX Airport car rental suppliers like Thrifty are permitted to meet and collect arriving passengers beneath the purple sign saying "Rental Car Shuttles" on the Lower Level in the Arrivals Island, where air travelers reclaim their baggage. The courtesy shuttle takes customers with a Thrifty reservation to the remote Parking Lot C location, where all car hire providers have their offices. Here customers will be handed their keys and documents, before being shown to their rental car.

Air travelers arriving without a car rental arrangement may use the free phones, which can be located in the interactive Visitors Information Centers (VICs'); the VIC's can be found in the area of the baggage reclaim islands on the Lower Level in the Arrivals halls. Upon making a reservation with Thrifty, passengers can ask for their courtesy shuttle pick-up to Parking Lot C. At the end of the car rental contract, customers are returned to their relevant terminal.
