Top tips for renting a car in Baton Rouge

  • Discover everything Louisiana’s capital has on display within your own time by renting a car upon your arrival. Don’t rely on delayed public transport or expensive cab rides, and seize the opportunity to not only visit attractions like the Louisiana State Capitol, but also to explore surrounding scenic places like a drive alongside the famous Mississippi River or a visit to Lake Maurepas and Wildlife Center, about 1 hour away by car.
  • Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport is located just over 7 miles north of the city, and the quickest way to reach your next destinations is by opting for a rental car directly from the various agencies on the airport grounds. Simply follow the signs to the baggage claim area, where companies like Avis, Hertz, or Enterprise offer their vehicles. The quickest way to the heart of Baton Rouge is via the I-110 South.
  • Driving defensively in Baton Rouge is a good choice, as local drivers have a reputation of driving rather aggressively, including rarely using signal blinkers, driving fast through the city, and changing lanes without warning before squeezing into tight spaces between other cars in the lane. Don’t let local drivers stress you out and adhere to all speed limits and street regulations, even if you may be honked at once or twice for those decisions -- it is better to play it safe.
  • Rush hours can be intense in the city and morning rush hour between 7 and 9 am as well as evening rush hour from 5 to 7 pm should be avoided, if possible. Especially the I-10 can face heavy congestion during these times, so plan your journeys around those peak times to enjoy a more stress-free driving experience. On weekends, rush hour is not too bad, but when driving in the vicinity of the LSU campus on the day of a game, there can be plenty of traffic as well.
  • Book your rental car in Baton Rouge at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Baton Rouge are around 35% cheaper than other car types, on average

Make sure you know what kind of gas your rental car needs and refill in advance before leaving the city to explore the Mississippi River or its surrounding nature.
