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 in Detroit

The largest city in Michigan, Detroit is best known for the essential role it has played in the auto industry and the world of music. Whether you're here for Henry Ford or Motown Records, you'll find something to interest you. On the shores of Lake St. Clair, it is one of the closest cities in the United States to Canada and opens up the possibilities of travel north of the border. Rent a car in Detroit to see Motor City for yourself.

What can I see in Detroit?

You could easily spend a full day exploring the Henry Ford Museum, an enormous complex that explains much more than just the history of the automobile. The eclectic collection here puts together some of the most important items in American history, including the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was sitting when he was shot in Ford's Theatre, the Rosa Parks bus, and even a sealed tube which is said to contain Thomas Edison's last breath. Of course, there are plenty of cars here too. Head down in your rental car in Detroit and prepared to be amazed.

The other must-see is the Motown Museum, built in what was once Berry Gordy's house and studio, Hitsville USA. The collection here will take you back to the Golden Age of Motown, with exhibits celebrating legendary artists like Marvin Gaye, the Supremes, and Stevie Wonder.

Tip

Apart from the Henry Ford Museum, don't miss the chance to visit the gardens at Fair Lane, where Ford lived with his wife. In one of the most industrial cities in the nation, this is a great chance to park your cheap car rental in Detroit and take a relaxing stroll through a beautifully preserved green space.

Nature near Detroit

For the best greenery, head to Belle Isle. This island park can be reached in your car hire in Detroit. Ideal for swimming in summer, it also has wide green spaces, museums, a zoo, and the top attraction: a giant slide that will delight young and old.

You can also use your low cost car hire in Detroit to take you to the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge, a marshy wetland zone. Following decades of industrial pollution, this haven was set up to preserve wildlife in the area. Birds, including peregrine falcons and bald eagles, can be seen here, and the waters teem with fish.

What else can I see in Michigan?

Pick up your cheap car rentals at Detroit Airport DTW to begin your journey around the state. Ann Arbor, home to the University of Michigan and its famous football team, is about 45 miles away. The state capital, Lansing, is just 90 miles away to the west. You'll also find cheap car rentals at the Lansing Airport LAN if you prefer to start your vacation there.

Getting around Detroit

It's always a good idea to use cheap car rentals in the United States to explore the country, and that's never been more true than in Detroit. This is Motor City, so the best way to get around town is, of course, to drive! Follow in Henry Ford's footsteps by using rental cars in Detroit to explore the city and its surrounding area.

Can I drive my Detroit car rental into Canada?

The simple answer is yes! But with an important caveat. Rental companies want to know in advance if you're planning any international travel, so it is essential that you mention this when you book your Detroit car hire. U.S. citizens will not need a passport to enter Canada, but you must have proof of citizenship. Be sure to check in advance to see which documents are accepted, as this list does change from time to time. If you're not a U.S. citizen, requirements are different and may vary according to your country of origin. Check in advance before you pick up your cheap car hire in Detroit.
