KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Baton Rouge

  • Discover everything Louisiana’s capital has on display within your own time by renting a car upon your arrival. Don’t rely on delayed public transport or expensive cab rides, and seize the opportunity to not only visit attractions like the Louisiana State Capitol, but also to explore surrounding scenic places like a drive alongside the famous Mississippi River or a visit to Lake Maurepas and Wildlife Center, about 1 hour away by car.
  • Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport is located just over 7 miles north of the city, and the quickest way to reach your next destinations is by opting for a hire car directly from the various agencies on the airport grounds. Simply follow the signs to the baggage claim area, where companies like Avis, Hertz, or Enterprise offer their vehicles. The quickest way to the heart of Baton Rouge is via the I-110 South.
  • Driving defensively in Baton Rouge is a good choice, as local drivers have a reputation of driving rather aggressively, including rarely using signal blinkers, driving fast through the city, and changing lanes without warning before squeezing into tight spaces between other cars in the lane. Don’t let local drivers stress you out and adhere to all speed limits and street regulations, even if you may be honked at once or twice for those decisions -- it is better to play it safe.
  • Rush hours can be intense in the city and morning rush hour between 7 and 9 am as well as evening rush hour from 5 to 7 pm should be avoided, if possible. Especially the I-10 can face heavy congestion during these times, so plan your journeys around those peak times to enjoy a more stress-free driving experience. On weekends, rush hour is not too bad, but when driving in the vicinity of the LSU campus on the day of a game, there can be plenty of traffic as well.
  • Book your car hire in Baton Rouge at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Baton Rouge are around 68% cheaper than other car types, on average

I didn’t like anything about the experience. There were no cars available for rental at any Hertz location which was a waste of time and energy. The company reps refused to assist me with contacting other locations for availability. I was able to finally obtain a rental from Enterprise and will just stick to them in the future because although they were out of cars they actually contacted me to get me set up with another location that had a car in stock for me.

Pros:

Return was easy

Cons:

I used the airport code to find a car. Booked economy. Got to the airport to pick it up and they told me I booked it off site and that location was already closed. (Why would it let me book the car if I was booking when the location was closed?) So the airport said they could only get me a full size and I would have to pay for a full size. According to the employee, this happens to people a lot. Unacceptable. Not using Enterprise again. Haven't received email receipt.

When we Picked up the car the right front tire Air pressure was only at 25 pounds per square inch. We were told to take the car to fire stone on Siegen Lane and have the car repaired. We did so only defined on our trip that fire stone had done nothing to solve the problem. So every day on our vacation we started out finding a gas station to put air in the right front tire.
