Louisiana car rental information

If you are new to Louisiana, you should understand some of the challenges that lie ahead as your drive around different cities. Certain places in New Orleans have one-way streets that were put in place way before the emergence of motorized vehicles, so they are narrow, with limited spaces for parking. Your drive through Jackson Square could potentially damage your car, since you will be running over “curb stops," or bollards. Drunk pedestrians in New Orleans can also pose some challenges, so you must be on the lookout while driving in this city. Since most streets are narrow, you should expect blind corners and sharp turns. To overcome some of these hurdles, consider an intermediate or mini cheap car rental that occupies less space.

Whether you’re driving a cheap car rental or rolling in the latest exotic car in Louisiana, you need to know key traffic rules and laws. The “Move Over" rule applies when you’re approaching a stationary emergency vehicle that is using audible or visual emergency signals. This law dictates that you must give way by pulling over or reducing your speed to around 20 mph. Text messaging and phone calls are not allowed while driving, unless there is an emergency. You must turn on the headlights from sunset to sunrise, including when there’s low visibility. The state of Louisiana forbids drivers from using any in-ear devices unless it is a hearing aid for the drivers. It’s important to check with Louisiana’s department of motor vehicles for recent law changes before you pick up your car rental.

When it comes to car rentals in Louisiana, you have to present the right documents. The first document is your original, unexpired, and valid driver’s license under your name. The driver’s license can double as proof of your age and clean driving record. For travelers outside the US, an International Driver’s Permit will be required alongside a driver’s license from their home country. An active credit card to reserve the rental car is required, as well as auto insurance. Make sure to confirm the type of documents required by specific companies before you rent a car.
