KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Gonzales

  • If you love antiques and shopping, then renting cheap car rentals in Gonzales will give you access to some of the best antique markets in Louisiana, such as the Prairieville Flea Market and Gonzales Jambalaya Festival Association. Additionally, Gonzales sits on the Mississippi River road and is a great starting point to explore other river road attractions like the Houmas House Plantation and Laura Plantation. Public transportation in the city may be limited, and taxis are expensive, so using Gonzales car rentals is an excellent option to travel around the city and neighboring areas at your own pace.
  •  New Orleans Louis Armstrong Airport (MSY) is approximately 55 miles from Gonzales. The rental car offices at MSY are located on the first level of the parking garage across from the baggage claim area. Baton Rouge Ryan Airport (BTR) is about 20 miles from Gonzales. The rental car offices at the BTR are located across the street from the baggage claim area. Lafayette Regional Airport (LFT) is approximately 50 miles from Gonzales. The rental car offices at LFT are located directly across from baggage claim within walking distance.
  • When driving cheap car rentals in Gonzales, it is important to know that the city has a mix of rural and urban areas. As a result, the driving style varies depending on the location. Generally, drivers in Gonzales are calm and relaxed, but they can get impatient and aggressive during rush hours when the roads are congested. Bicycles are not very common on the roadways, so there is less risk of encountering them while driving. However, there are a lot of trucks on the road, particularly on highways such as Interstate 10. The common vehicles on the road are pickup trucks, SUVs, and sedans.
  • Gonzales has its rush hour traffic in the morning from 7 am to 8 am and in the evening from 4 pm to 6 pm, particularly on its main roads such as Airline Highway and Highway 30. Hence, it's important to avoid driving during rush hour traffic if possible. Additionally, certain seasons of the year can pose potential challenges for driving cheap car rentals in Gonzales. During the summer months, the city experiences high temperatures and frequent downpours, which can make the roads slick and hazardous to drive. In the fall, particularly between October to November, Gonzales is prone to flooding due to the area's low elevation and proximity to the Mississippi River.

Pros:

Return was easy

Cons:

I used the airport code to find a car. Booked economy. Got to the airport to pick it up and they told me I booked it off site and that location was already closed. (Why would it let me book the car if I was booking when the location was closed?) So the airport said they could only get me a full size and I would have to pay for a full size. According to the employee, this happens to people a lot. Unacceptable. Not using Enterprise again. Haven't received email receipt.

It was an easy experience. I had some wait time at the Budget in Baton Rouge but once I get checked in, I signed a few papers and checked the car. Then I was on my way. The car was a good and clean vehicle, tank was filled with gas. Pretty seamless. Drop-off in Broken Arrow was even easier. He checked the mileage and gave me my receipt, and I was on my way. Fast and efficient experience.

Pros:

The clean car itself. It looked and smelled new despite having higher miles than most rentals I've seen. It was also very comfortable. And the integrity. There were 3 scratches on the car that they caught and noted that before dropping the car off to me. I have been manipulated in this with others before.

Cons:

The price. I know you can't avoid all taxes and fees, but $90 for driving 64 miles one way is a little high in my opinion.
