    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    National / Alamo is prob the cheapest big name.

    You could look for independants / small companies. they are normally a lot cheaper.
    Don't know any in LA. Do look at the insurance extras though. The American's don't know how to drive..... and have HUGE parking spaces at Malls etc.

    Been to US twice on business, great place.

    One good tip about Alamo: Don't book online over here and then think you've got a good deal. When you get there, they'll start adding compulsory insurances to the price you were quoted and it's suddenly double!

    My missus works for an airline, so I get free flights, cheap car hire, discounted airport parking and cheap travel insurance.

    hmmm .........after looking on the web and Ste's advice - I found alamo to be the cheapest so I have booked - it did say that insurance/cdw etc etc was all in......so I may drop them an email to confirm

    usually when I have booked car hire in the past I have paid up front for it online - so this felt a bit strange - even no deposit required!

    try travelocity.com as your starting point - I used them on my last two visits and found the prices to be good. They compare all the companies and include all prices/taxes etc

    travelocity is good for hotels, cars, airfares (especially).
