Be sure and get car at the airport, as it is much more convenient than taking a shuttle. Travel light, if possible to reduce wear and tear on luggage and body. Shop around for the best deal. It pays off in saving money. I personally get car full of gas, as I belong to Costco and can always get gas for a lot less than what the rental car agency can offer. Try to be on time that is scheduled for car pickup and return. It is easier on customer and rental car agency.

John Wayne is a great little airport. It beats LAX hands down. It's close to everythungs. There is never a crowd. The flights never have to wait on the ramp on arrival nor takeoff. There is a very short walk to the gate. There is usually a very short security line. All this means that you can arrive a little bit later and get out of there quicker.

Don't necessarily rent a car at the airport. Offsite rentals can save big money. Don't use the first restroom when you get off the plane...everyone else is. Go to the next one available. Carry-ons saves a lot of time and eliminates the risk of delayed luggage. Be patient and be kind. Not everyone is a seasoned traveler.

Santa Ana is a much better location to fly in/out of versus LAX if you are coming to Orange county. The shuttle service provided by Fox is very convenient. The ride on the shuttle to the rental car location from the airport is short. Returning the car to Fox only took a couple minutes. I received my full deposit back on my credit card within 2 days. The rental rates at Fox were far lower than anyone else.

Aquarium in Long Beach was nice and educational. Only takes a couple hours to tour the various areas. Do not travel by car during peak commute times- too much traffic. Visit the Beaches on weekdays not weekends if possible. Orange county airport is much easier and smaller and faster to get through security than LAX.

don't fly in late. Evidently there is a county law that closes the airport and car rentals at 11pm. Would have been nice to know that ahead of time!
