Green Transportation

At Hotard, our commitment to the environment runs deep. Our company is grounded in the belief that what we leave behind for our children is every bit as important as what we accomplish today. Every day we take hundreds of cars off Louisiana roads and deliver the highest passenger miles per gallon of any means of group transportation. We are consistently leading the transportation industry toward a greener tomorrow.

Professional Drivers

Our driver pool is one of the things we are most proud of at Hotard. We have some of the south’s most accomplished and highly-trained drivers on the roads today. We know that your driver matters, whether you’re being picked up at the airport and taken to a local hotel, or if you are going on a 6-day road trip. We are proud that our drivers are the face of our organization and know that no matter who you ride with, you’re in good hands!

24-Hour Travel Support

No matter how much we want everything to go perfectly, no matter how well we prepare, there are those moments where you simply need help and you need it now! And no matter how much we wish they didn’t, it seems like more often than not, these things happen in the middle of the night. Our team understands that you need help when you need it, not in the morning when someone gets in to the office. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives will always have someone there to take your call, answer your question, and get you the help you need to ensure your travels with us are as perfect as we can make them.

We are here to make your sightseeing adventures a memory for a lifetime.

  • We were absolutely delighted with our driver, Denise, and Hotard's punctual service, willingness to improvise, spotless equipment and more.  Our Garden District guide, Mary Eshenour, was delightful, informative and very knowledgeable.  Everything worked to perfection, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotard to any group visiting New Orleans. And it was a pleasure working with our sales person as well!

  • The service you all provided this weekend was EXCELLENT and one of the best I have ever worked with. Hotard was very thorough and prompt with the booking and scheduling process and our three drivers, Darrell, John and Leonard were timely, friendly and very adaptable.   It is people like you that make our trips so successful. Thank you for this! I look forward to working with you all again when we travel to Louisiana again soon.

  • What a fabulous bus!  Your company has now spoiled us.  The bus was great.  We can't wait until our next trip.  Thelma Alexander was an excellent driver.  Her patience and professionalism with a group of "young" ladies is superb.

  • Thanks for helping make our daughter's event wonderful!  The bus was wonderful and Brandon was awesome! I will definitely recommend your company.
