FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Detroit Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Detroit

Car Rental at Detroit Airport

One of the most important cities in recent American history, Detroit is best known for its automobile industry. Today, Motor City is still the headquarters of some of the country's biggest car companies - but there's a lot more than cars to be discovered here. Rental cars at Detroit Airport will give you easy access to the best that this Michigan city has to offer, from the proud history of Motown music to some truly inspiring artwork. Rent a car at Detroit Airport and see it all for yourself!

What cultural sites can I visit in Detroit?

The DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) is one of the largest art galleries in the continent. Inside this architecturally impressive building, you'll find artworks from all over the world. Perhaps the most interesting pieces are the Detroit Industry Murals, painted by Mexican artist Diego Rivera. Today, Rivera is better known as the husband of Frida Kahlo, but he was an accomplished artist in his own right. Here you can see seven murals inspired by the local motor industry.

Of course, for more about the motor industry, drive your cheap rental car at Detroit Airport to the Henry Ford Museum. The collection here was started by the man himself and celebrates American innovation. You can see artifacts from inventors like Thomas Edison and the Wright brothers, as well as historical curiosities, such as the limousine JFK was riding in when he was fatally shot.

Tip

General Motors remains the most important company in Detroit. To learn about it, pick up your rental car at Detroit Airport and visit the GM Renaissance Center, an enormous complex that manages to be a corporate headquarters, a tourist attraction, and a local leisure center, all in one. Come from Monday to Friday at 12 noon or 2 p.m., and you'll be able to enjoy a free tour of the center.

All about Motown

Music lovers can't miss the Motown Museum, which celebrates this historic record label. It is set in the original location of the Hitsville U.S.A. recording studio and can be easily reached with a rental car at Detroit Airport. There are some interesting artifacts here from the careers of great artists like Diana Ross and the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and dozens more Motown stars from back in the day.

Fans of another kind of music can follow instructions to complete a self-guided tour of 8 Mile filming locations. Eminem's Oscar-winning semi-autobiographical movie was filmed on location in Detroit, and many of the iconic sites can be seen and explored today. Be warned that if you visit all the filming spots, you will be leaving the safety of the tourist-friendly city center. For your security, you should stay in your cheap car rental from Detroit Airport.

Where are the most beautiful natural areas around Detroit?

Belle Isle is in the middle of the Detroit River. The entire island is a park, complete with an impressive aquarium and beautiful lawns. It's connected to the mainland by a bridge, so you can drive there in your car hire from Detroit Airport. Over the decades, impressive conservation work has taken place here, undoing the effects of pollution from the motor industry to create a lush green paradise.

Getting around Detroit

There's no better way to celebrate the heritage of Motor City than with Detroit Airport car rentals. Thanks to Henry Ford, we can now enjoy cheap car rentals in the United States. A rental car is the fastest, most convenient, and safest way to see his hometown.

Can I take a road trip from Detroit?

You could easily visit local Michigan towns like Ann Arbor or Lansing, which are within a comfortable commuting distance of Detroit. A more impressive road trip would cross the entire state of Michigan and take you into Illinois, Chicago is about 280 miles away. Remember, though, the Great Lakes region is bigger than it looks! To get all the way to Minnesota, you'd have to drive for over ten hours. It would be easier to look for cheap car rentals in Minneapolis.

When should I book my car?

For the cheapest car rental at Detroit Airport, make your reservation in advance. Usually, the earlier you book, the lower the prices will be. This is equally true in Detroit as in other destinations, so keep this in mind if you're looking for cheap car rentals at the New York JFK Airport, cheap car rentals from Dallas Airport DAL, or cheap car rentals in Philadelphia.

With HAPPYCAR, you can look at all the available options for car rental at Detroit Airport and compare prices to find the offer that suits you best. HAPPYCAR will help you find the best car rental at Detroit Airport, no matter what time of year you're traveling.
