Picking up Burbank Airport car rental 

Although much smaller than Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the Hollywood Burbank Airport, previously called the Burbank Bob Hope Airport is closer to Hollywood and the main tourist attractions in the city. Its two busy terminals offer plenty of retail and dining options as well as free WiFi.

The rental car counters are located in the Consolidated Rental Car Facilities of the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC). Use the elevated walkway located adjacent to the Valet Center in front of the terminal to reach the airport car rental ctr facilities. From there, you may proceed and collect your keys from the rental counter of your chosen company. When you are ready to return your vehicle, the rental car return entrance is situated on Avenue B which may be accessed via the Hollywood Way and Empire Avenue Airport gates.

Know before you go in your Burbank rental car

Keep these driving tips in mind when picking up your Burbank Airport rental car. 

  • The airport is located 5 kilometres from downtown Burbank. In normal traffic, it takes around 10 minutes to drive to Burbank and approximately 25 minutes to Hollywood. For the quickest route to Burbank, get on the I-5 S/Golden State Freeway and exit 146A to arrive in the downtown area.
  • Los Angeles is notorious for heavy traffic at all times, but especially during rush hour. Try to avoid peak travel times and use a GPS to avoid congested areas.  
  • Carpool lanes, designated with a diamond painted on the pavement, can be used if you are carrying a passenger. Enter or exit only where there is a break in the double yellow line. 
  • Pedestrians always have the right of way. Also, follow the speed limits while driving your rental car.
  • Speak to your car rental Burbank, CA provider about toll payments. 
  • Motorcycles can legally drive in between traffic lanes, so be mindful of them. 
  • Right turns on red are allowed unless stated otherwise; treat it as a stop sign and only turn if there is no oncoming traffic. 
  • Finding on-street parking is a challenge, but luckily parking garages are scattered throughout the city center. To avoid wasting time, we recommend asking your hotel concierge for advice or looking up parking locations on websites like BestParking before heading to your destination.
