Pros:

The staff was friendly and helpful. Pick up and drop off was easy.

Cons:

I thought it was pricey but it was the cheapest option, so could just be that I don’t rent card very often.

Cons:

They need to make it explicitly clear (online and at rental kiosk) that they do not accept Debit cards so we don’t wait an hour in line at the airport only to find out that I can’t rent a car when I finally speak to the employee.

Incorrect billing, that I only found out about after checking with my bank - no receipt at drop-off, no reason for extra charge. The company fixed the problem, but I had to call in and inquire and wait for a refund.

The girl in Lafayette where I rented the car was extremely nice. The Hertz people in Nashvlle when dropping the car off were extremely RUDE. The car was ok not super comfortable but ok. The rAtes are outrageous. Also, I paI’d ahead for the car with a major credit card. You guy putting another $200 hold on my acct for days is unacceptable. I had already paid for the car. Ridiculous and I don’t like being told that AFTER I’ve already rented the car. I have insurance. No reason to do that.

I drove all the way to Lafayette to pick up my rental and the employee at the desk wouldn’t allow me to pick up the SUV. Apparently a major CC was needed, bank card not accepted for SUV. However, this information was not listed online or in the fine print of the rental when I booked. I offered to provide a major CC via phone since I did not bring one with me, the employee said they had to swipe it b/c they use an “old swiper”…which you can still manually type in card info. She also spoke about running a major CC to verify my associated flight, I said I didn’t book a flight, she replied, “exactly, that’s why I need a major CC.” Nothing made any sense. I can understand rules but that employee was awful! I asked if they could pull other rental locations away from the airport to see if they had available van or suv and she refused. She stated that a major CC would be needed for a van too. I drove 30 miles back to my home and booked directly with Enterprise and then drove all the way back to Lafayette. The entire process delayed my family’s vacation by 6 hours and it turns out I did not need a major CC to rent a van. National/Enterprise/Alamo - your employee at the Lafayette airport on the morning of September 1, 2022 is what gives companies a bad reputation. She was not helpful, contradicted herself a few times, rude and lazy. I won’t be renting from this location in the future, it wasn’t worth the 4 hour hassle. I also ended paying an additional $400, as my booking was not guaranteed when I picked up from a new location. An $800 rental became a $1200 rental.

Because my flight was late they had to move my reservation to the airport branch instead of the off the airport branch and I ended up having to pay about $50 more bucks. The counter clerk was nice, he tried to get me some discounts. But their drop off location is in a weird lot that has you walk through the side of the airport and there is no one there to hand the keys to. So you go to the same counter you got the car from and of course they ask what your mileage was, like I know?

Top tips for hiring a car in Lafayette

  • Car rentals in Lafayette have affordable rates, which make renting more convenient than taking a taxi from the airport to your preferred hotel. From the Lafayette Airport, you can visit the nearby attraction sites, such as the Lafayette Natural History Museum, the Zoo of Acadiana, which is approximately 8.5 miles away, or the closer Vermilionville Historical Center. Lafayette car rentals make your move within and around the city much more flexible and convenient.
  • Several car rental companies are available at the Lafayette Regional Airport, all located at 200 Terminal Drive. They include Budget, Hertz, Alamo, Thrifty, Enterprise, and Dollar. Complimentary airport shuttles are available to get you to these rental offices, and the roughly 0.6-mile trip shouldn't take more than 5min.
  • Typically, most streets and highways in Lafayette are full of bicycle traffic. When driving in Lafayette, it is essential to always be on the lookout for cyclists that share the same roadways with motorists. Always respect bike lanes in streets with sections specifically designated for cyclists. As a driver, you are advised to play your part and yield to pedestrians and cyclists at intersections and crosswalks as well. This can help mitigate a dangerous situation.
  • Traffic in Lafayette is one of the most congested in Louisiana. The high population and influx of vehicles can cause quite a frustrating gridlock on most roadways, especially during morning and evening rush hours. Expect to be stuck for a few extra minutes around 6am to 10am and 5pm to 8pm. The most congested is the I-10, along Bayou South Road. However, if you want to go to Johnson from Lafayette, you can take Congress Street to Rue du Belier to Duhon then Touchet through Broussard. It's one of the least congested routes out of Lafayette.
  • Book your rental car in Lafayette at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
