Thanks to its pleasant weather and abundant rays of sunshine, Los Angeles is a year-round destination. While this is great for your holiday, it can make it difficult to find cheap flights to Los Angeles. In fact, certain times of the year can make it impossible to find a cheap flight to Los Angeles, such as during the Academy Awards at the end of February. Hundreds of people make their way to L.A to spot a glimpse of celebrities walking the red carpet, but events like these shoot up the prices. You can also visit on the 4th of July to catch the famous fireworks display. Again you will definitely pay extra for your flight tickets but the experience can be very rewarding.
To find the cheapest flights to Los Angeles, plan to go around January. This is the rainy season and hotels and flights to Los Angeles are slightly reduced than other times of the year. Other than January there isn’t really an off season so don’t hold out expecting to find the cheapest flights to Los Angeles at a different point in the year.

Downtown LA is located around 30km from LAX airport. The easiest and cheapest option is to get a free shuttle bus from the airport. Outside of arrivals you should take either shuttle G or C. C takes you to the Metro bus centre and from there you can either continue on your way to downtown LA or if you’re staying in Hollywood or Santa Monica, you can find means of transport from here. Staying in downtown LA isn’t highly recommended as most of the nightlife and activities take place in other areas of the city.
You can also jump in a taxi if you want convenient and fast travel from the airport, however the price won’t be cheap and it is expected that you tip your driver.
