It's only about a 15 minute drive, so once you clear customs and get your car, it should be no problem. If you have a very late arrival and think it might be too much for you, a cab shouldn't be too expensive. You could then go back to the airport the next day to pick up a car. What you save in one day less car rental should cover the extra cab expense.

Its pretty simple - just ask when you pick up the rental car how to get to Lincoln Blvd. heading north. Once on that street just take it a few miles to the north until you come to Fiji Way or Mindinao Way, at which point you'll make a left hand turn. Depending on where you are going exactly in the Marina, you'll probably then want to turn right on to Admiralty Way which is the road that circles the perimeter of the Marina.

Do not use the freeway. Go north, young man, go north.

Thanks for this helpful info. Think we will pick up a car at the airport as long as we can avoid the freeway.

Absolutely you can avoid the freeway. It's a piece of cake getting to Marina del Rey from the LAX area via Lincoln Blvd.

It will take you longer to wait for and ride the free shuttle to the off-airport car hire lot than it will to drive to MDR.
