New Orleans Favorites

Each neighborhood in New Orleans has something special to offer, but don’t pass up these great spots to soak up some of that New Orleans culture.

Backstreet Cultural Museum

Located in Treme in an old funeral home, this is the place to learn about jazz funerals and the history of the Mardi Gras Indians, plus get an up-close look at their intricate, hand-sewn costumes.


This hip neighborhood is home to Frenchmen Street, where you can always find a good live show, and it’s also worth a mention that big-name singer Solange Knowles owns a house here too.

City Park

Covering over 1,300 acres, you’re bound to find something happening in City Park — from New Orleans Jazz Fest to a carousel ride, or just a stroll through the Besthoff Sculpture Garden.

Isaac was very communicative and had quick response times. The pickup location was easily accessible and the car was full of gas and clean. The rental was a dream, and will definitely be renting his vehicles on our next visit to New Orleans.

Wow my trip was amazing with the help of Issac and his available rental at the last minute due to poor planning! He provided me with his car and it was well maintained and he was available whenever I needed to communicate with him!!!! Thanks Issac!!!! I recommend Issac and his cars when rentals are needed!!!

There’s more to explore just outside New Orleans, so book your New Orleans car rental on Turo to continue your eating tour or get a healthy dose of history.


This is the heart of Cajun Country, so point your New Orleans car rental about 3 hours west and to find the best boudin, cracklin, smoked meat, and gumbo you can handle.

Avery Island

For fans of hot sauce, a visit to this island where Tobasco is produced will not disappoint. Take a tour, learn a few new tricks in a cooking class, and explore the Jungle Garden.

Whitney Plantation

Just an hour west in your New Orleans car rental, visit the only plantation in Louisiana that focuses on and offers memorials to the lives and experiences of enslaved people.

Sang was a terrific — best experience I’ve had using Turo ever. He is so friendly and went out of his way to help and make sure the trip was smooth. Super easy pick up and drop off, and the car was great. There are a few Prius listings in New Orleans on Turo — trust me, this is the one you should go with!!

Daniel's car drove smoothly on the bumpy New Orleans roads. His car rides lower than what I'm used to, so be careful when entering and exiting some driveways so you don't scrape the bottom! Daniel made it easy and convenient for us to pick up and drop off the car anytime with a lockbox. Thank you so much for helping us explore NOLA in your quick Honda Civic!

This was my first time using Turo and I had an excellent experience! Damion was wonderful to work with. He brought the car right to the house I was staying it. The car itself was so much fun to drive. Tons of power and superior handling. I’ll definitely book again next time I need a car in New Orleans!
Ben F. - October 17, 2018

Car was great! Easy pick up and drop off! Only comment would be if your wanting to keep it for more then two days the mileage is 200, super low. If your trying to see the gulf and bayou plus drive around New Orleans, you will need to negotiate more mileage.
Samantha C. - January 1, 2019
FIAT 500 2016
Erin was great! She was very flexible with us returning the car early. This Fiat is a perfect car to drive around New Orleans - it only has 9 gallons of gas capacity but we were able to drive it for 250 miles before we had to stop for gas. Unbelievable! Huge money saver. The car was clean and drove just fine.
Polina K. - April 8, 2019
Nissan Versa Note 2015
Renting with Christian was a painless experience. We picked up and dropped off the car at MSY with minimal delay and with clear, direct communication to coordinate linkup instructions. The car was budget but got the job done and was a great value — much cheaper than renting from the usual car rental companies without being severely limited by included mileage.
William L. - November 25, 2018
Honda Civic 2009
This car is a tough cookie! Not the most glamorous ride but that’s not what is important to you if you’re booking this. What is important is a safe, reliable and cheap car rental. That is exactly what you will get. There was previous damage done to the car windshield and front bumper but the very kind owner, Richard, told us the car had just come from the shop and was fine. Richard also said these would be changed for future drivers. Drop off and puck up was a breeze and the car was freshly cleaned.
Elizabeth H. - November 5, 2018
FIAT 500 2016
Erin is a great host, we enjoyed the car and everything went as planned (despite some hang ups with unexpected weather events out of our control). The car’s interior wasn’t very clean, but Erin did what she could to vacuum it out during pick-up. The car was perfect for buzzing around New Orleans and squeezing into small parking spaces. I would rent from Erin again anytime.

Ford C-Max Hybrid 2013
Denis’ hybrid Ford was easy to connect with. It performed flawlessly. It was economical (40 mpg) and very easy to park. It had all the latest sensors and navigation aids. Denis was easy to communicate with and the pickup location was adjusted to be within a $15 Lyft ride of New Orleans airport. All 4 of our bags (airline checked size) fit in the hatch space leaving adequate comfortable seating for 4 adults. The car was comfortable both on tiny city streets and on and off the freeways. I would rent from Denis again in an instant.
Bill G. - March 20, 2019
Audi S5 2018
Damion was a fantastic host! Within moments of my reservation, he was communicating about pickup and delivery options. The days leading up to the trip, he checked in to confirm plans. When I had to make a change to the reservation, he was understanding and helpful. The Audi was in great condition - clean, sporty and just fantastic to drive. If only it had been a bit cooler to have the top down for long periods of time but that is New Orleans in September. Damion deserves 10 stars; truly a fabulous host to have on Turo.

Was in New Orleans for vacation with my Mother for the first time. The car was not at the airport itself but it was directly across the street in the parking lot of an iHop at a Days Inn motel. Pick up was SUPER easy, took a shuttle to the location, didn’t have to wait, they were already there. Shuttle took us directly to the car which was nice. Had to enter a code, took pictures of the car. There was a few bumps and bruises on the car, but no issues at all. Brakes weren’t A1 but it did not affect the ride of the car. I didn’t get to meet the host, everything was done through text message. Which was fine. Car was AMAZING on gas. It literally took $18 to fill this car completely to full, that’s crazy coming from California lol ..

This was the best car rental I’ve ever had. Damions communication was as impeccable as the the car was. He answered the phone every time and made this experience as easy as can be. The car is incredible and turns everyone’s head as you drive by with the top down. I drove my elderly father across the Mandeville bridge with the top down and it will be a day I will never forget. Thank you Damion!

When I had to get a car in NOLA I chose Ronald (again). Only my second time renting via Turo I had to go with Ronald and he did not disappoint. On time, flexible with pickup, car was amazing, I just hope my next rental via Turo is half as good as they will have big shoes to fill. Thanks Ronald for making our vacation that much better!

Zach was AMAZING! I oils definitely rent from him every time I visit the area. Extremely helpful, courteous, and understanding, I am very much pleased and appreciative of everything he did to help me even with all my last minute changes and requests. I felt completely comfortable communicating with Zach he has a very pleasant and inviting personality, I felt as though we’ve known each other for years. For the airport drop off he even offered to drop me off so that I Didn’t miss my flight and also helped me with my 50 lb luggage bags all the way inside! Loved it! As for the car.. its very reliable, if your looking for a gas saver look no further , I only filled up my gas tank 2 times in a 2week span and still had half a tank of gas left over for the fill up for drop off, mind you I was all over the place from Kenner to New Orleans daily , and let’s not forget about Mardi Gras traffic. Zachary, thank you so so much for being so patient and understanding of my unfortunate events. My first renting experience was just GREAT all the way around 😁 I’m very happy !

Muneeb is an outstanding Turo host. He was very flexible with reasonable changes regarding pickup and drop off times. As for the car... its incredible. Like renting an Audi A4 that is made 10 years into the future. I actually ordered a Tesla after driving his Model 3 for the day. There are clear limitations with Autopilot and Full self driving mode (highways only). Muneeb made it very clear to be cautious and pay attention at all times, which is important for first timers. He did a great job of explaining all the nuances of using a Tesla car (doors, credit card key, controls inside the car). I would 100% recommend renting this car if you want to check out an amazing Tesla!
