LAX to San Diego

LAX to San Diego

With a huge international terminal, LAX has become the hub for international travelers coming to Southern California. Bugt what if you land in LA but really want to spend your trip somewhere else? Luckily there are plently of modes of transportation that are often times much cheaper than buying a flight from LAX to wherever you may go. See below for some of our favorite methods to get you from LAX to San Diego.


If you’re looking for a scenic route and cost effective, the AMTRAK might be your best bet. The AMTRAK travels parallel to the ocean almost the entire ride! Leaving from Union Station, it’s about a 2 hour and 45 minute ride. Tickets range from $37 for an unreserved coach seat to $56 for a business class ticket. With access to a food and beverage cart (yes, there’s alcohol!), this truly has it all… except for the stops. Although multiple stops are good because you can get off at any San Diego stop, that also causes delays. That’s also not factoring in any train issues which may cause even further delay.

Car Rental

When traveling into LAX, you can always utilize a car rental service from one of the many companies around. Depending on the size of your group, and what kind of vehicle you want, rates can be from $20 to over $100 a day. Once landing, most car rental services have a shuttle that pick you up outside of baggage claim and take you to the office. One good thing about car rental over a shuttle is that you have the freedom to go to more than just your hotel. Beware though… this might be a great idea until you remember all the extra money you will be spending on parking because parking is never free, especially downtown San Diego.
