Location Information

For a convenient car rental in New Orleans, stop by Budget on Canal Street. Rent a car here and you’ll be just a stone’s throw away from the French Quarter and the hottest spots in town. All you have to do to travel throughout this vibrant and exciting city is grab one of our quality rental cars and go!

If you’re traveling on business, read our New Orleans guide for business travelers. Renting a car from Budget will allow you to easily get to any business destination in the city. With a rental car, you’ll also be able to enjoy any free time during your business trip and visit some of the many restaurants, bars, and entertainment options in the city. Coming to the Big Easy for a fun leisure vacation? Our New Orleans location is just minutes away from the city’s top attractions—which you can learn more about in our New Orleans Vacation Guide—like Bourbon Street and Jackson Square. When your visit is over, you can drop off your vehicle at our Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) location. With Budget rental cars, your trip is all the easier!

Cheap Car Rentals

When you rent a car from Budget, you can count on getting a quality car at an inexpensive rate. Browse our selection of rental cars to find a model that works for you, and we’ll rent it to you at a price you can afford.

Van Rental

Are you coming to New Orleans with a large family or travel group? Renting a van might be the best transportation solution for you! With a minivan or a passenger van, you can get as many as 15 people to any destination in the city.

One-Way Car Rental

If you’re making a travel stop in New Orleans, but it isn’t your final destination, consider a one-way car rental. With a one-way rental, you can pick up a car here, and drop it off at any other Budget location in the country.

SUV Rental

An SUV rental is ideal for anyone traveling with a medium-sized group and a good amount of luggage. With one of our SUV models, like the GMC Yukon-Denali or the Ford Explorer, you can get the perfect balance of cargo space and passenger space.

Long-Term Car Rentals

For visitors staying in New Orleans for longer periods, typically between one and eleven months, you can save more on your rental car with a long-term rental. With Budget’s long-term car rentals, the longer you rent it, the more you save!  

Luxury Car Rental

We have a variety of luxury rental car models available if you prefer to travel with a little more style and class. Whether you take a Chrysler 300, Chevrolet Camaro, or any of our other sweeter rides, you’re sure to hit the town in absolute luxury.
