Top tips for hiring a car at Lafayette Regional airport

  • Getting public transport from Lafayette Regional Airport (LFT) is challenging because public service vehicles might not reach the airport’s premises. Instead, you can rent a car and enjoy the freedom of visiting different points of interest in the city, such as Avery Island and the Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum. Additionally, you can enjoy the privacy you desire because you're driving alone. Another advantage of getting a convenient car rental at Lafayette Regional Airport is that you can drive safely at any time you feel like, unlike when using public transport means, which normally follows a fixed route operate along a pre-planned route.

Picking up a Lafayette Regional Airport rental car is convenient and will save you the time and hassle of using public means to get to the city center.
  • Returning your car rental at Lafayette Regional Airport is as hassle-free as you rented it. That's because you'll return it at the same point you picked it up: on 200 Terminal Drive. Follow the Rental Car Return sign as you approach the airport, and you'll get assistance on where to park it. Sometimes your flight departure might be at night when the rental agencies are closed. You can still return the car during the after-hours. Your rental agencies will guide you on where to drop off the keys and park the car.
  • Rush hour can get you stuck on the roads for a few minutes to an hour near Lafayette Airport due to increased traffic. The morning rush hour lasts from about 6 am to 9 am, while the evening rush hour lasts from about 4 pm to 6.30 pm, with the Friday rush hour starting earlier in the afternoon. Although roads and streets are usually busy with motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians during the weekends, the traffic will slow down but it won’t come to a standstill. Surrey St and Blue Blvd, running along the west and north side of the airport, experience heavy traffic during these times, and you can easily miss your flight if you leave late. It would be best if you drove to the airport between 10 am and 3 pm when traffic flows quite smoothly.

I received a phone call 2 hours before my reservation advising me that there would not be a car available. The person on the phone said they were expecting a truck in 4 hours but didn’t want to promise anything. Also said I should call back later when she was off. I called at 5:45pm to get an update. Was left on hold for 21 minutes and then hung up on. I drove over there and saw at least 10 cars in the C slots. Once I got to the counter, there was no one there and they said “it was first come first served” When I pointed out that I WAS FIRST - my reservation was an hour earlier and no one else was there, all of a sudden there was a car available.

Flight arrived late, but a National staff person was still at their desk, despite it being after their normal hours. The pickup and return were very efficient and quick, though they can have somewhat of a long line at busy times--so plan accordingly.

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.

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 experienced total loss with the flood in Louisiana, including 2 cars. Insurance is moving along incredibly slowly and apparently there was not rental included in our coverage. Therefore, I have to pay for everything myself. As a Realtor, a care us essential! While I will eventually be able to write it on taxes as a business expense I STILL have to pay for it. Not sure why no one seems to get that part! The affordability of the car and it's overall good condition is the KEY to my survival as a mom if busy children and an REALTOR trying to provide for my family.
