Information about your trip to Baton Rouge

Baton Rouge is the capital of Louisiana and the second-largest city in the state. During your visit, you have to see Louisiana’s Old State Capitol turned into a museum and the current Louisiana State Capitol building with your economy car rental. As a historic stop, you can visit Magnolia Mound, a plantation house near the Mississippi River. The house is an example of the French Creole influences iconic in this part of the United States. If you’re visiting Baton Rouge in February, you probably already know they go Mardi Gras crazy in the city, especially in specific neighbourhoods like Spanish Town. Prices are competitive and you should be able to find a cheap car rental in Baton Rouge. Between the airport and central area, there are about 20 car hire locations in Baton Rouge. When parking your Baton Rouge car rental central, there are various options from on-street parking to parking lots and garages.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Baton Rouge?

Having a car rental in Baton Rouge is the best way to get around and also be able to go to attractions out of the city centre. For example, if you’re up for it, the lively iconic city of New Orleans is less than a two hour drive away. For some wilderness and maybe even spotting an alligator, you can go to the BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp just out of the city. There’s a variety of options for parking your rental car in Baton Rouge, plus, on-street parking is free after hours and on the weekends. If you’re on your way south of the city, be careful when driving along Burbank Drive as the intersection with Nicholson Drive is known to be accident-prone. When it comes to traffic, Florida Drive is Baton Rouge’s most congested road.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Baton Rouge?

Before driving your car rental in Baton Rouge, we’ve put together a few tips and laws you may not be aware exist in Louisiana. It’s forbidden in Louisiana to wear headphones or any listening devices (except hearing aids) while driving a car. Speeding and reckless driving are the most common traffic offenses in Louisiana so please, drive safely. If you happen to be a smoker, you should know it’s illegal to smoke while there is an infant in a car seat in the car with you. If you’re planning on having a drink, we suggest appointing a designated driver who won’t consume alcohol or leaving your car rental in Baton Rouge behind. Just in case, check Baton Rouge’s department of motor vehicles for any possible changes or updates you should be aware of.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive a rental car in Baton Rouge if I’m visiting from another country?

You must be 18 or older to rent a car and 25 or older for a people carrier rental in Baton Rouge. If you are visiting from out of the country, you don’t need any specific permits to pick up your vehicle. Nonetheless, if your driving license is not in the Latin alphabet, we suggest you have an International Driver’s Permit translating your original foreign document.
