The City of Angels and Tinsel Town are home to some of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. If you are thinking on travelling to LA and Hollywood, then here are some of Accident Advice Helpline’s tips on how to survive, and how to claim travel accident compensation, should you unfortunately suffer an accident during your travels.
Rental cars in LA and Hollywood:
Renting a car can be one of the most enjoyable experiences of travelling and also one of the most daunting. Although Los Angeles has an extensive network of public transport systems, the independence of being able to travel wherever and whenever you want on holiday by rental car is unmatched.
Be sure to choose a reputable car hire business. Before leaving the dealership, check any rental cars thoroughly for damage. Make sure you understand what exactly is covered in the rental agreement and insurance policies. If you do not understand anything, ask the person at the dealership to explain to you.
Be aware, however, that some of the more famous tourist destinations in and around Los Angeles can be inaccessible by car. It’s inevitable that if you go to visit Hollywood you will want to see the famous Hollywood sign imposing over the city. The sign however can only be reached by hiking. You can park your rental car just north of 6363 Deronda Dr, 90068, and complete the rest of the journey on foot.
If you have an accident whilst using a rental car in LA and Hollywood then you may be entitled to compensation.
Unfortunately, as with all major cities around the globe, Los Angeles has a high rate of crime. Always be careful and exercise caution when in Los Angeles, be extra careful and avoid travelling alone at night. Choose a hotel with a safety deposit box and leave all valuables in it.
Tipping is a very important part of culture in Los Angeles. Britain doesn’t have much of a tipping culture, so travellers should be aware that it is customary to tip in almost all situations in Los Angeles.
