What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Baton Rouge National car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car rental in Baton Rouge?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Baton Rouge?
Most suppliers in Baton Rouge set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to review National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Baton Rouge?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Baton Rouge. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Baton Rouge getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Baton Rouge. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Baton Rouge?
Baton Rouge has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Louisiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've gone out in Baton Rouge's downtown or checked off all the activities in Baton Rouge. If you want to add even more entertainment on your Baton Rouge vacation, you can check out one of the two theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the family to Blue Bayou Water Park or Celebration Station.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
