Top tips for renting a car at Lake Charles airport

  • No matter what the reason, the Lake Area in Louisiana is always a superb destination. On any trip here, you will probably land at Lake Charles Regional Airport (LCH). On business, sightseeing, or for a semester exchange, the best way to enjoy the region is through using Lake Charles Airport car hire services for all of your travel needs. Not sure where to start? No problem! KAYAK quickly and easily searches all the service providers, allowing you to compare the best offers. Just select what you need, and let us do the rest.
  • Car hire at Lake Charles Airport means that you can take full advantage of the extensive network of roads that connect the area, cities, natural parks and the bayous alike. From the airport, you have easy access to Baton Rouge via Highway 385 to Highway 3092 and then on to the I-10, and the I-210 South Bypass. This trip will take you roughly 2h. Should you need to go west, to Houston, you can also use the I-10, and the I-210 (Southern Bypass) but you will use Highway 3092 instead. Going to Houston, you can expect to spend 2h 30min on the road. The airport is also well-connected to the rest of the county and state, making driving a pleasure.
  • To make your journey as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, we advise you rent a car that meets the needs of the route you have planned. When heading into the bayou or the countryside, it's better to consider an SUV or other similar, larger vehicle. Business meetings or city tours require premium or compact, but comfortable cars. Whichever car you choose, be sure it has a good air conditioner, as Louisiana is renowned for heat and humidity, year-round. This way, you can avoid arriving at your destination tired and sweaty.
  • There are four companies providing in-terminal services for car hire at Lake Charles Airport and three more that provide services at the airport, either through concierge collection, meet and greet or shuttle services. Whichever option you choose, you can expect a fast, efficient and friendly service. For big groups, it's our recommendation that you hire a van, or a tour carrier, as it will save costs. It also makes logistics easier, than trying to coordinate a group split across a few cars. Make sure your selected driver is comfortable driving a big van, and what the State regulations are for your specific situation, as certain provisions may apply.
  • Book your rental car at Lake Charles airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car at Lake Charles airport

  • How easy is it to find the car hire at Lake Charles Airport counters?

    The car hire counters are located on the first floor. You need to exit through the main doors and walk into the parking lot, where you will see all the rental offices on your left, as well as the parked rental vehicles.

  • Do the car rental companies provide any value-added perks?

    When you make a reservation, keep an eye out for some useful perks provided by some agencies. You might find a free tank of fuel, pre-registration or free cancellation, for example.

  • When are the car rental companies open?

    Most of the companies have similar opening hours, typically between 11:30 to 23:30 or from 10:00 to 20:00. Usually, on Sundays, the opening hours are reduced, or they may be closed completely. You can always arrange an after-hours pick-up or drop-off if needed.

  • What else should I know when I rent a car?

    Always check the fuel policy in your rental contract to avoid extra charges, and the same applies if you have a limited mileage policy. If you have unlimited mileage, you don't have to worry. Purchase some extra insurance so you always have maximum coverage.

  • Which car rental companies will pick you up at Lake Charles airport?

    Car rental companies that offer shuttle or pick-up services from Lake Charles airport to off-airport locations include Ace, Alamo, Avis, Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, and National.

Pros:

Alamo didn’t have a car for me. They did the same thing to me last year. You need to stop contracting with them. The lady over the counter even stated don’t go through a third party

Cons:

The car was supposed to be ready at 12, I received a phone call from Alamo that there was no car. She stated she would call me back as soon as one became available She I showed up at 8pm and they still didn’t have a car. It wasn’t until I became visibly upset and started saying things so the customers could hear me that did they mysteriously came up with a car.

Cons:

I request a rental 6 days before getting my rental. When I got there, the lady ran all my information and then said we don't have the convertible that you requested. Then, she asked if I wanted another car. If I wanted anot her car, I would have requested another car. I wanted the convertible that I requested. I ended up with no car from Budget. I was so mad.

Pros:

When I returned the rental car in Dothan, Alabama, the return agent could not believe the price I received for a one way rental. I informed them that I utilized your website to secure the price. They advised that the lowest they had ever seen was double what I paid.

Pros:

All I needed to do was drop off the car. Quick and easy transaction. Value for money question didn't apply -- that's why it's rated with one star. Survey should really have an NA option.

Cons:

No negatives.

Reserved Large SUV over a MONTH in advance and the night before departure I received a call informing me a large SUV will not be available by the most rudest and unprofessional AVIS agent I have ever dealt with…. It was interrupting my plans therefore I should have been the one being rude… What could make things better would be making sure you have the rental that you CONFIRMED on the reservations with the customers…

Cons:

My flight was running late, I called to make accommodations since my pick up was scheduled for 2 but i wouldnt make it in until around 430 (they closed at 4) and was treated rudely by staff at LCH. Asked if they could drop car at FBO for general aviation (only a 3 min walk) since i was flying in private aircraft as they’ve done in the past and just told no. When I picked up car at competitor they told me they would have been happy to drop car and the enterprise attendant working is known for being rude and not helpful.
