KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Covington

  • Car rentals in Covington are a wonderful way to get around this small city on the northern shores of Lake Pontchartrain in Louisiana. Since public transportation is largely unavailable, car rentals in Covington can get you around the city and to interesting sites and cities beyond Covington city limits. You can visit the Insta-Gator Ranch and Hatchery in town or the Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge just outside town to the southeast. You can drive to Baton Rouge to the west, New Orleans to the south, or Biloxi, Mobile, Gulf Shores, or Pensacola to the east.
  • Located just an hour’s drive south of Covington across Lake Pontchartrain, the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) makes a convenient and efficient location for securing Covington car rentals. Once you deplane at MSY, you can get to the Rental Car Center by exiting baggage claim and walking towards the Long-Term Parking Garage to the Rental Car Center Shuttle Stop. Here, you can board the shuttle about every 5 minutes, 24/7. The shuttle ride to the Rental Car Center takes about 15 to 20 minutes. When you drop off your rental car, you can take the shuttle back to the terminal.
  • When you're driving car rentals in Covington, you will most likely experience traffic congestion simply because Covington roads are too small for today's larger vehicles. The streets of downtown Covington were mapped out and built in the 1800s before the automobile was even invented. Therefore, it is sometimes difficult to drive on these small streets, especially if a large vehicle, such as a pick-up truck or an SUV, is approaching you from the opposite direction. For those driving car rentals in Covington, exercise patience and caution.
  • For those driving car rentals in Covington, you will experience some problems with the roads. Roads in Covington have notoriously bad conditions, with potholes and sinkholes, for example. Such problems seldom seem to get fixed in Covington. For those in Covington car rentals who want to drive to or towards New Orleans, drive defensively. New Orleans is a city that has a high number of traffic accidents compared to other cities.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Covington?

    For those looking into car rentals in Covington, consider renting a small car, such as a compact or an economy car. Because Covington streets are so small and narrow, it will be much easier to navigate your way through the city if you're driving a smaller car. And if you drive across the lake into New Orleans, a smaller car will be easier to negotiate through the city’s traffic congestion.

  • What's the speed limit in Covington?

    Most streets in the city of Covington have a maximum speed limit of 25 mph. If you drive beyond the Covington city limits onto undivided rural roads, the speed limit is 55 mph. The speed limit of Interstate 12, which courses through Covington, is 70 mph. But as I-12 stretches further out into more rural areas in both directions, the speed limit becomes 75 mph. The speed limit in a school zone is 15 mph. If, when you are driving car rentals in Covington, you get a speeding ticket, it can cost from $100 to $300 in most situations.

  • Where are the best places to park in Covington?

    Downtown Covington has parking lots called Ox Lots, as a nod to Covington's history. These Ox Lots provide parking off the street that is free to the public, welcoming everyone from downtown visitors to city employees. You're unlikely to find parking meters on the streets of Covington, but if you cross the lake to New Orleans, you will find that parking meters operate Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 7 pm and charge $2 to $3 an hour.

4.0 Mediocre

Apr 2021

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was very polite and friendly.

Cons:

I waited 30 min and they couldn't decide which car to give me. I ended up with a smaller car which was fine except it was very dirty inside, the tire light came on. For $95/day you don't send out a car that looks like its 30 years old. I wasn't going to wait for another car so just took it. I heard the supervisor on the phone telling someone they were short handed but there were 4 employees inside. Not sure who was around back cleaning cars. I had a reservation so not sure what the issues were. Car should have been ready.

Cons:

Everything we booked on the internet was found to be false when we physically showed up to get the car. The car itself. the cost. drop off time. etc... Staff was not helpful at all and then when we accidentally left an important object in the car, I showed up the following morning to try to recovery my property and the gentleman there was extremely difficult in helping me to find the car. He was insistent it had already been rented. i begged then insisted we just take a look in the back to see if it was there. Turns out it was and I was able to recover the object. i will never rent a car from this place again.

May 2017

Pros:

The weather was turning bad. Thunderstorms rolling in. However, the Budget representative was there and got me into my car and on the way quickly.

Cons:

I picked my car up at 11am. I was a little early, instead of the noon scheduled pick up. The Budget representative said the weather was bad, so he figured no one would be there and he was about to leave. If I had got there at the scheduled time, would I have found the office closed prematurely? I'll never know, but I'm sure glad we got there early! The final price was 50% more than the booked price. That was a nasty surprise which will have me looking elsewhere next time.

8.0 Very good

Dec 2015

Pros:

Agent was helpful and helped out with a aurplus charge that the airport added without my consent. There is a $13 fee if you return the car with less than 70 miles between pick up and drop off, so look for that.
