2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2021
Pros: I live in Austin and we experienced a winter storm which caused United to cancel my flight to New Orleans. I called and cancelled my car rental due to the unprecented winter storm. Hertz only refunded me $43. They kept $50 of my money even though this was not my fault at all. I won’t use kayak or hertz again.
2.0 MediocreFeb 23 2021
Cons: I prepaid for a car . When I went to pick the car up , hertz said they didn’t have cars available.
4.0 OkayFeb 22 2021
Cons: The car smelled like smoke and was missing the gas cap. I also received no instructions on returning the car on a Sunday when Hertz is closed.
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: We showed up to Hertz to pick up our car and waited about 15 minutes in line to be helped when the manager came out and said he couldn’t help us and they were closed and no longer renting out cars due to the bad weather. He “apologized” that the two workers at the desk did not notify us but said the most he could do was have us come back tomorrow at 12. We missed our tour and lost our money and even worse they made us wait outside to figure out a way to get back in town since we were stranded! When asked why we weren’t notified so we didn’t waste our time he said we tried to send emails but maybe we missed you. The person next to us waiting was in the same boat and said he never received a text, email or call either so clearly that was a lie. Worst service I’ve ever experienced would not recommend this Hertz.Cons: What couldn’t have been better!
2.0 MediocreFeb 17 2021
Pros: Nothing. Horrible service.Cons: You booked the pickup time for a time after their business closed on Saturday. Hertz then sent us to the airport location, where there was a huge wait only to find out they didn’t have any available cars. When we went to go get the car when they reopened on Monday, we waited in a long line again only to be told they didn’t have a car for us (and wouldn’t have had one even if they had been open when we tried to get it the first time).
2.0 MediocreFeb 10 2021
Pros: Nothing really.Cons: I could have driven away with a rental car. Instead I waited an hour and the car never showed up and I wasted $22 in round trip ubers just to go home and rent a car from another company.
2.0 MediocreFeb 1 2021
Cons: Customer service was that of an attitudinal teen.
10.0 ExcellentNov 9 2020
Pros: staff very friendly, professional. Easy pick up and drop offCons: Delivery of car to hotel
2.0 MediocreSep 20 2020
Pros: Horrible experienceCons: We booked a car 1 week prior to travel. Arrived at the airport of our destination and called the rental car company in which they told us they were closed and had no more cars. Our pickup time was for 4 pm and apparently they close at 4 pm. Why would they allow us to book this? And Why weren’t we notified in advance there were no cars?
2.0 MediocreSep 10 2020
Cons: The Staff.. they were rude.. I booked a car in advance for Labor Day weekend.. sent me confirmation and charged me.. I get there and what they have to tell me is they don’t have any cars to give.. what a pathetic group.. I was stuck in New Orleans for like 2 days cuz they didn’t have a car and I had to depend on a family member driving from hours away just to come get me at the last minute

10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2019
Pros: No one in line when I picked up vehicle or dropped off!!
8.4 ExcellentJul 18 2019
Pros: Staff and cleanliness and accessibilityCons: Thought it was a little expensive but in hindsight I think it was the fact that Louisiana state tax is 25% so that amped up the price. Good car overall. It may need an oil change and the transmission feels weird in lower RPMs
10.0 ExcellentJul 1 2019
Pros: New Car. Smoothly handed over. Everything great!Cons: Nothing.
10.0 ExcellentMay 21 2019
Pros: The staff, especially Anika, was very helpful.
2.0 MediocreMar 30 2019
Pros: Nothing. I booked a car and when we got there we were told there were no cars for us. Nothing was offered to make the experience right besides "you could wait about 5 hours."Cons: Having a car available! Or, not letting me book a car online when none were available.
8.0 ExcellentMar 11 2019
Pros: The staff at pick-up were curt, rude, and seemed annoyed when I pointed out they didn't review the condition of the car and there were scratches. The drop off staff were lovely, however.Cons: Following the proper procedure when providing a rental.
7.6 GoodMar 8 2019
Pros: Car was decent, it smelled like smoke and was very dirty and spotty on the outside.Cons: Cleaner car, and easier check out process.

Top tips for renting a car in New Orleans

  • New Orleans is a cultural melting pot of diverse heritage, world-renowned music, exceptional nightlife, and culinary options. Renting a car will help you maximize your time in New Orleans; whether you aim to explore the varied wetlands that the surrounding lakes and Mississippi River have to offer, or would prefer to discover secrets spread across the downtown metropolis, renting a car is the best option. Aside from checking out the distinctive Creole-styled architecture in the French Quarter, ensure you venture across Lake Pontchartrain and witness the isolated beauty of Fontainebleau State Park and Mandeville.
  • The Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport is located approximately 4.5 miles from the downtown area and you can expect to complete the drive in about 25 minutes. Major rental companies such as Enterprise, Budget, Hertz, and Dollar have a range of rental options to suit you; you can use KAYAK to find the best deal. Once you have collected your luggage, proceed towards the exit and take a right turn under the sheltered walkway towards the Car Rental Facility to pick up your keys.
  • Streetcars, commonly referred to as trams in other parts of the world, are present in the center of town and you must be careful while driving to provide the right of way and ensure you do not stop on the tracks. While drinking alcohol on the street is uniquely legal in New Orleans, having an open alcoholic container in your car while driving is not. Right-hand turns on a red light are legal in New Orleans unless otherwise indicated.
  • Like most major cities, New Orleans experiences rush hour delays at peak commuting periods of the work week. It is advisable to plan around the rush hour between 7:30 am and 9:30 am, as well as 4 pm and 7 pm. People come to New Orleans from all across the world to celebrate events such as Mardi Gras and the Jazz & Heritage Festival. During these festivities, traffic is particularly affected close to the French Quarter so, if you are in the city during this period, allow some extra time to reach your destination.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in New Orleans for $38 or less
  • Book your rental car in New Orleans at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • Commercially operated parking garages are the best option for secure parking in the downtown district. At Clarke Garage and Commerce Garage, both located on Gravier Street on the outskirts of the French Quarter, you can expect to pay approximately $10 to $15 for all-day weekend parking. Leave your car here for the day and explore the downtown district conveniently on foot.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge. That’s why KAYAK has produced the ultimate guide to renting a car to help you cut though the jargon and make the right choice for your rental car.
