KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Shreveport

  • Car rentals in Shreveport give you a reliable break from the humid weather in summer. While the air conditioning is worth the rental on a hot summer day, you will also have greater accessibility to cool off in nearby Cross Lake than if you relied solely on public transit. If you want to take in the iconic spots in Shreveport, a leisurely drive along the Red River is sure to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own vehicle. There are also many popular destinations beyond public transit service that are only accessible by car, such as off-the-grid restaurants that are popular among locals.
  • Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV) that services the Shreveport area, has a single terminal with Shreveport car rentals available on the ground level. Customers can pick up their car from the lot, which is within walking distance of the south end of the terminal. Some of the rental companies onsite are Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • As a major gambling hub, Shreveport has a number of casinos where drivers should exercise caution and use defensive driving. The areas around casinos become particularly crowded on weekend evenings from 8pm until early morning around 2am, and during any major events and holidays. If you are planning to drive through the casino areas at these times, give yourself plenty of extra time for traffic or waiting for pedestrians to cross the road. Although there are crosswalks and stoplights near the casinos, gamblers are known to risk the danger and jaywalk in crowds.
  • Shreveport averages over 51 inches of precipitation per year and can see severe thunderstorms with damaging hail, among other weather events. Rain is common throughout the year, with the highest average falling in June. If you are not accustomed to driving in rain and find yourself in a heavy storm, consider pulling over and finding a safe place to wait it out. When driving in rain, give yourself extra time and space for stopping, and use your headlights to ensure proper visibility.
  • Book your car hire in Shreveport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Intermediate car hire in Shreveport are around 30% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Shreveport

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Shreveport?

Excellent. We were upgraded for free. The car was very nice and accommodated our needs well. When we returned the car, my husband accidentally left his wallet on the counter. A few minutes later the associate came running after us to return it promptly! My only complaints are that I didn’t love the air freshener that they used…it was kind of a heavy smell. And for the drop off, the email sent didn’t have very clear instructions on where to park and what the drop off process was.

KAYAK

Pros:

Thrifty car location was not on Hollywood Ave. So I went to the airport and the Thrify booth was closed with a sign saying go to the Hertz Booth where the man was very rude and told me he did not do third party rentals. So he wanted to rent me a Hertz car completely ignoring the reservation I had and the charges that were paid the day before online and he would not listen to me. He was RACIST and Rude at the Hertz Booth and tried to duplicate charge my card for another rental. He refuse to correct the problem which I was not able to rent a car. My card will be refunded as i recurved a letter saying it would.

Cons:

First of all you did not tell me that Thrify was closed down on Hollywood Avenue Sevondly you did not tell me that the Thrify Booth was closed and that people would be sent to Hertz where this same older Racist rude white man would say I don’t do third party rentals this is my second experience with him.

KAYAK

Pros:

Very helpful and sympathetic AVIS staff. Reservation was cancelled at the desk with minimal issues.

Cons:

I can't remember renting a car and being charged a mileage fee above and beyond the base price, taxes and other fees that are usually included in the quoted total. Even then, when I was presented with the "estimated cost" that substantially exceeded the price quoted on Kayak, Avis was only "estimating" 80 miles @ $0.30/mile when the rental agreement clearly stated that the car would be returned at a location >300 miles away! Very deceptive on both Kayak and Avis' parts! Thankfully, I had the option of driving my own vehicle and the reservation was cancelled.
