I just booked a trip to New Orleans with a side trip to Austin. I am afraid I messed up on the return to The Airport. Our flight is a 4:00 PM on a Monday in New Orleans but we will be in Austin on Sunday night. our plan was to leave very early and drive straight to the airport. I am not familiar with the traffic from Austin to New Orleans, or returning a car at the airport. I have always driven to New Orleans, so not familiar with airport at all. Has anyone made the trip, is it doable??? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. According to google it is 8 hours drive, but how about traffic and logistics at the airport. Thank you all!
