2.0 MediocreJun 15 2016
The problem is more with Kayak not clearly statingPros: Very helpful and sympathetic AVIS staff. Reservation was cancelled at the desk with minimal issues.Cons: I can't remember renting a car and being charged a mileage fee above and beyond the base price, taxes and other fees that are usually included in the quoted total. Even then, when I was presented with the "estimated cost" that substantially exceeded the price quoted on Kayak, Avis was only "estimating" 80 miles @ $0.30/mile when the rental agreement clearly stated that the car would be returned at a location >300 miles away! Very deceptive on both Kayak and Avis' parts! Thankfully, I had the option of driving my own vehicle and the reservation was cancelled.

8.0 ExcellentJun 4 2021
Pros: It was very easy to schedule the reservation online. The price was unbeatable. The staff was very friendly and pickup was smooth.Cons: We had cancelled a reservation from Hertz when we reserved the Thrifty rental because of a $170 price difference. Since the companies are affiliated somehow, the agent could see both rentals, even though one was cancelled. Rather than trying to investigate more using confirmation numbers, she just picked one and told us we would need to call the hotline to make sure it was the right one. The hotline was also not very helpful, so we just prayed it was the right one and we wouldn't be out a a couple hundred dollars. It is still unclear what exactly the cost will be, as there are still charges pending on our credit card.
8.0 ExcellentNov 30 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and the rental process was quite efficientCons: The car was dirty and unwashed
2.0 MediocreOct 25 2020
Pros: Thrifty car location was not on Hollywood Ave. So I went to the airport and the Thrify booth was closed with a sign saying go to the Hertz Booth where the man was very rude and told me he did not do third party rentals. So he wanted to rent me a Hertz car completely ignoring the reservation I had and the charges that were paid the day before online and he would not listen to me. He was RACIST and Rude at the Hertz Booth and tried to duplicate charge my card for another rental. He refuse to correct the problem which I was not able to rent a car. My card will be refunded as i recurved a letter saying it would.Cons: First of all you did not tell me that Thrify was closed down on Hollywood Avenue Sevondly you did not tell me that the Thrify Booth was closed and that people would be sent to Hertz where this same older Racist rude white man would say I don’t do third party rentals this is my second experience with him.

Great employeesPros: Easy pick up and drop off. Employees were great!!!Cons: Nissan Versa as a mid size, while the car got good gas mileage it was small and did not drive well, affected dramatically by slight breeze and steering pulled. It was a challenge to drive for a road trip.

Thrifty good, local office okPros: The car was clean and the rental process was quick once I got a hold of the employee.Cons: I had problems contacting the local thrifty office in the 2 times I tried to call them. The first time was to get my car while waiting for my luggage. The second time was to extend my rental. Iended up calling the national number to extend my rental w no problems.
2.8 MediocreApr 9 2017
AwefulPros: The price was ok and the ease of online renting it through Kayak.Cons: Everything! The car smelled aweful! I literally had to ride with the window down it was that bad. Then when I brought it back there was no one at the counter at the airport to return the car. After waiting for almost 20 mins - I finally asked the person at the Enterprise counter if anyone was working at the Thifty counter so I can return the car. I was told that Hertz now owns Thrifty so I can bring it to them. I was rather annoyed .. why didn't they (Thrifty) have a sign saying as much? So unprofessional.

Top tips for renting a car in Shreveport

  • Car rentals in Shreveport give you a reliable break from the humid weather in summer. While the air conditioning is worth the rental on a hot summer day, you will also have greater accessibility to cool off in nearby Cross Lake than if you relied solely on public transit. If you want to take in the iconic spots in Shreveport, a leisurely drive along the Red River is sure to be enjoyed from the comfort of your own vehicle. There are also many popular destinations beyond public transit service that are only accessible by car, such as off-the-grid restaurants that are popular among locals.
  • Shreveport Regional Airport (SHV) that services the Shreveport area, has a single terminal with Shreveport car rentals available on the ground level. Customers can pick up their car from the lot, which is within walking distance of the south end of the terminal. Some of the rental companies onsite are Avis, Hertz, and Enterprise.
  • As a major gambling hub, Shreveport has a number of casinos where drivers should exercise caution and use defensive driving. The areas around casinos become particularly crowded on weekend evenings from 8pm until early morning around 2am, and during any major events and holidays. If you are planning to drive through the casino areas at these times, give yourself plenty of extra time for traffic or waiting for pedestrians to cross the road. Although there are crosswalks and stoplights near the casinos, gamblers are known to risk the danger and jaywalk in crowds.
  • Shreveport averages over 51 inches of precipitation per year and can see severe thunderstorms with damaging hail, among other weather events. Rain is common throughout the year, with the highest average falling in June. If you are not accustomed to driving in rain and find yourself in a heavy storm, consider pulling over and finding a safe place to wait it out. When driving in rain, give yourself extra time and space for stopping, and use your headlights to ensure proper visibility.

This option will also handle driving through water buildup, such as large puddles. Car rentals in Shreveport, particularly the maneuverability of a compact SUV, will allow you to safely navigate the busy downtown area with ease.

  • A majority of the two-lane highways in Louisiana have a 55mph speed limit. Within the city, you can expect 20mph speed limits in residential zones, with a 25mph speed limit strictly enforced in the downtown area due to heavy pedestrian traffic. Outside of the city, interstate speed limits can reach up to 75mph in rural areas. The highway patrol is known to strictly enforce the speed limit on freeways that pass through urban areas in Louisiana, such as Shreveport, where the speed limit drops to 65mph as you pass the city exits.

  • The average price for a gallon of gas in Shreveport is around $2, lower than the national average due to its proximity to Texas. Many of the lowest-priced gas stations are located along Barksdale Boulevard, passing by the Barksdale Air Force Base on the eastern side of the city. As you get closer to the Shreveport Regional Airport, the average price of gas will increase. 

  • There are nearly 9,000 parking spots in downtown Shreveport, with free parking available along the riverfront of the Red River and in designated city surface parking lots. Metered parking is monitored throughout downtown, costing approximately $0.50 for 30min. There are many private parking lots and garages that cost significantly more than city zones. All street parking in downtown is free on weekends and from 5pm to 8am on weekdays.

  • Finding the right price, understanding the add-ons and staying up to date with policy changes can be a challenge.
