Location Information

New Orleans is a phenomenal city with lively locals and so many fun and unusual things to do. Waste no time fussing over your transportation when you arrive; head straight to our central location in the heart of downtown New Orleans and rent a car, then get to the music and the food!

Our office on Canal Street is a mere 20-minute drive from Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (where we also have an airport car rental location for ultimate convenience). You’ll find plenty of the city’s greatest restaurants and some incredible tourist attractions surrounding our downtown location—including the French Quarter, one of the most historic neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Take full advantage of everything the city has to offer you by using our vacationer’s guide to the city to plan your upcoming trip. If you happen to be visiting New Orleans on business, we’ve got a whole list of things to do and places to eat while you’re in town.

Van Rental

Are you in need of a car rental in New Orleans with plenty of space for your passengers and luggage? We’ve got you covered. Out 12-seat passenger vans have so much space that the beignets will be all gone by the time they make it to the back of the van.

SUV Rental

If you favor a roomy ride that’s larger than a coupe, but smaller than a 12-seat passenger van, rent an SUV from Avis. Our lot in downtown New Orleans boasts a gleaming lineup of SUV rental cars to fit your travel companions and your luggage.

One-way Car Rental to the Airport

Before you can board your flight back home, you’ve got a whole checklist to complete with tasks such as packing, checking out of your hotel, etc. The last thing you should need to worry about is your ride to the airport. Pick up a one-way rental car from Avis and drop it off at our airport location!

Long-term Car Rental

Are you planning on staying in New Orleans for an extended period of time? A long-term car rental might just be the type of transportation package you need. Our monthly rental car option gives you an affordable rental car for as long as you need it.

Luxury Car Rental

Ride in style with a sleek and shiny luxury rental car from Avis. Take a Mustang convertible for a drive through the countryside on your way to historic plantation tours or cruise down Frenchmen Street in a suave and sophisticated Mercedes.

Economy Car Rental

For a practical vehicle that’s not too big or flashier than you care for, choose an economy rental car from Avis. Our lot in downtown New Orleans has plenty of economy rental cars to choose from, like the Kia Rio or the Toyota Yaris.

Preferred Service
