KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Hammond

You can easily visit nearby attractions, drive to neighboring towns, and create your own itinerary without relying on public transportation schedules.

The car rental center at this facility is located off-site, separate from the airport terminals. It houses several car hire companies, including National, Thrifty, Enterprise, Avis, Budget, Alamo, and Dollar.  A courtesy shuttle runs around the clock between the terminals and the car rental center, making pick-ups and drop-offs at minute-minute intervals. Book your car rental in Hammond online in advance to avoid last-minute rushes at the rental counters.

Exercise caution when approaching railroad crossings, adhere to warning signals, and never attempt to cross when a train is approaching.

Pros:

The single overworked staff member was very pleasant and competent.

Cons:

Hire more staff at this location! You can never get through on the phone and will be serviced by a single person (multiple visits - this was the case). Interior of the building was antiquated and dirty.
