Louisiana is found among the southern United States. Although its capital city is Baton Rouge, its largest and arguably best-known city is actually New Orleans. Louisiana is also home to an impressive 69 airports in total - seven of which are commercial - which make travelling to the state easy for goods and passengers alike. The region attracts many visitors for its paranormal activity, and many of its buildings are reported to have ghostly goings-on. If you are interested in hauntings then hiring a car in Louisiana gives you the freedom to drive to one of these spooky houses - such as Shreveport Municipal Auditorium.
If spooky goings on are not for you, you can rent a car in Louisiana and head to one of The Pelican State's many festivals. Around 400 take place every year, so your trip is bound to coincide with one. LA is even known as the festival state; probably the biggest and most well-known festival of all is Mardi Gras which takes place across some of the state's biggest cities. For a festival-free zone try heading to the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans. It is considered as being one of the leading aquariums in the whole of the U.S.
In the majority of the towns and cities in Louisiana you will find roads which have five lanes: two going left, two going right, and one in the centre for turning left. You must watch out when using this lane as traffic from both directions can use it, so check that it is clear before pulling into it. When approaching a stop sign you must stop. Even if there is no other traffic on the road, you must come to a complete halt. As in all US states, use of a mobile phone for calling or texting is banned while driving.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
