KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Alexandria

  • The easiest and least time-consuming method to see the sights in the region is in a car rental in Alexandria. Some bus lines only operate during rush hour, which is another reason why hiring a car service is better than taking the bus. Car rental is your best bet if you want to explore more of Alexandria and the surrounding area than you could if you depended just on public transportation or walked everywhere. If you want to see more, strolling alone will not go far.
  • Cheap car rentals in Alexandria gives you an opportunity to make various day trips to nearby cities or states without any restrictions. For instance, with your rental car, you can conveniently drive from Alexandria to cities like Pineville, Natchitoches, and Eunice. In light traffic, it takes about 1 hour to drive from Alexandria to Natchitoches or Eunice. Apart from these cities, you can visit states neighboring Louisiana, including Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi.
  • Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) offers car rentals in Alexandria that may be picked up at the terminal. There are many options for renting a car, including Avis, Budget, Thrifty, and Hertz, to name just a few. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you hire a vehicle at this airport. Car rental age requirements may be as low as 18 in various nations. Having a credit card and a driver's license that is in good standing are also necessities. Non-U.S. and U.K. drivers will need an International Driver's Permit in addition to their home country's driver's license.
  • If you are driving your rental car alongside your child, ensure you comply with the child seat rule in Alexandria. For children that are below 9 years, the law requires that they must always travel while in belt-positioning booster seats. On the other hand, if your child is below 4 years old, you must ensure that they are in a forward-facing car seat with an internal harness. You will get booster seats at any of the car rental locations across Alexandria. However, you will have to pay some additional daily fees for each booster seat or child seat.
  • Getting about in a rental car in Alexandria is a breeze due to the roads' excellent condition and the local motorists' general friendliness. Every major thoroughfare in the city goes through the middle of town, so everyone has to be on high alert. Keep at least three seconds of space between your car and the car in front of you, indicate your turns early and clearly, and stay in your lane while driving in Alexandria. Following these suggestions should make your time behind the wheel much more relaxing.
  • All the cheap car rentals in Alexandria, likely any other city in Louisiana, require anyone renting a car to be at least 21 years or older. When you come to pick up your car from any of the car rental locations in Alexandria, you must have a valid driver’s license with a clear photo. The license has to remain valid for the entire rental period. Apart from the driver’s license, you also need to have a major credit card or debit card when coming to pick up your car. Both the license and the debit or credit card must be in your name.
  • Renters of Alexandria car rentals are responsible for being aware that pedestrians often cross roads without first ensuring that traffic is evident in both directions. There are times during the day when it is more probable that some of the streets in Alexandria will be highly congested with the amount of traffic on the roadways. The city's central business center is characterized by traffic conditions that are consistently difficult to navigate. The times of day that see the highest traffic on the roads are from seven to nine in the morning and four to six in the evening.
  • Book your rental car in Alexandria at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard rental cars in Alexandria are around -119% cheaper than other car types, on average

4.0 Mediocre

Dec. 2015

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing.

Cons:

I wound up paying more than twice the quoted rental price. Avis hides the fact that they charge by the mile in paperwork that no one explains to you, and of course there are several pages of it. This is by far the worst business transaction I have had with any company. DO NOT use Kayak or Avis!

8.0 Very good

Jun. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

The front desk worker on pick up was very helpful. The rental was great, comfortable and roomy for whole family.

Cons:

The car was never inspected at pick up or drop off. No one present at drop-off had to put keys in drop box.

Cons:

The Rental Counter was closed when I landed, and there was no help, or instructions available. The corporate help was non-existent. I was forwarded to another contact, who said that the booking should not have been allowed in the first place, but that did me no good and 7pm & no transportation.

It was ok. Car could have been cleaned better, customer service wasn’t friendly although wasn’t rude. The rental was backed into the parking space so close to the next car I had to crawl through the passengers side

2.0 Poor

Feb. 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff not friendly and not helpful

Cons:

They charged extra driver fee because I prepaid for the car with my credit card but the reservation was in my fiancé’s name. That seems ridiculous that I had to be a driver on the car even though I never sat in the car just because I prepaid for the car through kayak with my card.

2.0 Poor

Cons:

Arrived to pick up rental and was told they had no cars because they all needed an oil changes.

Jul. 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Nothing - never got the rental. Reservation was for 8 am and booked two days in advance. Received a call the night before pick up saying the car wouldn't be available until 3:30 pm. Received another call at 3 pm stating there was still no car and "try again" the next day. Still no car...

Cons:

If a car is not available after a reservation has been made, offer a different vehicle at the same price. Not an offer of larger vehicle for a much higher cost.

9.6 Wonderful

Pros:

Landed at ten pm. Car ready and waiting check in and return was so easy.

Cons:

Expensive to switch drop off locations.

9.2 Wonderful

Jan. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Picked me up for the rental and dropped us off at the airport when we were done with the rental. Car return was super quick and easy.

Cons:

The car wasn’t ready when we arrived and it took 45+ minutes to get the car after arrival.

5.6 Fair

Nov. 2015

KAYAK

Pros:

There was no option other than going in a picking up the vehicle. The seats were clean, but we had to stop at a gas station to buy paper towels and window cleaner to clean all the windows, inside and out, because we couldn't see.

Cons:

There was a mix up at the time of pick up with the amount we were to be charged. They overcharged our account and then they could not recharge the correct amount within a 24hour period. This cause somewhat more trouble in that another 50 mile round trip was needed to pick up someone (whom needs to be present) with a different bank account/credit card.
