New Orleans Rental Car Deals

Here's an important thing to remember as you drive your rental car around New Orleans: When crossing St. Charles Avenue, don't linger on the median (or "neutral ground" as the locals call it) because that's where the streetcar tracks are. The streetcars cannot stop on a dime and have been known to collide with vehicles—rental cars and others. Another thing to remember is that Lafayette—the heart of French Louisiana is a 2-hour drive west. Whether you pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location

If you're arriving in New Orleans by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Enterprise, Avis, Budget, Dollar, and Thrifty all have locations in Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (formerly Moisant Field, airport code, MSY). Alamo's and National's pick-up counters are only a shuttle ride away. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)

Picking the rental car that's right for you

Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, minivans, and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in New Orleans, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing

Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
