Top tips for renting a car in Louisiana

  • Travelers planning a trip to the "Sportsman’s Paradise" state of Louisiana should consider many factors before choosing a vehicle for the journey. Summer is hot and muggy, and the winters are often mild, but the state is known for its hurricanes and tropical storms. The terrain, depending on where you go, can be swampy and wet. A larger, stable vehicle makes more sense, especially if you plan to do outdoor activities like fishing, boating, and hiking. Trucks or hybrid cars with roof racks make sense for transporting kayaks or camping gear. Because there’s a chance of high water in the late summer to winter months, a vehicle with a higher threshold might be a smart choice.
  • If you’re traveling with young children, always check with the car-rental agency to make sure they provide car seats. Louisiana has strict laws regarding child safety seats, and children one year or younger, or those weighing less than 20 pounds, must be seated in a rear-facing car seat. Children heavier than 20 pounds must be front-facing and properly strapped. Booster seats are for children 40 pounds or more. Older children should have seatbelt straps over the shoulder and lap. It is the driver’s responsibility to make sure the child is properly secured in the correct seat.
  • When renting a car in Louisiana, some travelers might want to cross borders to other countries. Most car-rental agencies in Louisiana allow border crossings, but there are distinct rules for doing so. Many agencies will charge additional insurance for crossing into Mexico, and some might not allow it at all. Some will not permit certain vehicles like luxury cars or larger vehicles to cross to another country. Be sure to ask about all the possible fees, as every agency is different. Also, be sure to let the car-rental agency know you intend to take the car across the border.
  • It’s a good practice to ask about tolls in Louisiana before renting a car. The state uses GeauxPass, a statewide toll system for roads and bridges all over the state. Most car agencies will give you an option to purchase a card pass, and if you plan on extensive travel in the state, it’s worth it to easily bypass the tolls. It also makes your road trip more enjoyable, since you don’t have to stop at each toll to pay the fee.
