Detroit Rental Car Deals

What could be more appropriate than to rent a car in MoTown? Most rental cars are American-made after all. Scoot out to Ann Arbor on a crisp Michigan fall day, in your rental car, and catch the University of Michigan Wolverines playing in their Big House. If it happens not to be autumn-time, tool around Groose Pointe Farms in your American-made rental car. Drive 60 miles northeast to Port Huron, and watch oceangoing freighters on Lake Huron—a slightly unusual sight considering how far inland you are. Whether you choose to pick up your rental car at the airport or from one of the many car rental companies in town, you will find some useful information below to help you get the right rental car for the right price.

Location, location, location

If you're arriving in Detroit by plane, you may wish to pick up your rental car from one of the many car rental companies at the airport. Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz, and Thrifty all have registration counters in the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW) terminal. Other major car rental companies like Alamo, Avis, and National are a short shuttle ride away. Expedia can also show you a map of the nearest car rental locations to your hotel and the rental cars they carry. (And keep in mind that off-airport car rentals are often cheaper than at the airport, even from the same car rental company.)

Picking the rental car that's right for you

Expedia offers a choice of standard rental cars, luxury autos, minivans, and SUVs to meet nearly every need. If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, let us know and we will forward your request on to the rental car company. And what's more, when you choose to "hire a car" (as the British say) from one of our car rental partners* in Detroit, you'll be dealing with a rental car company that has made a special commitment to provide Expedia customers with great customer service, a wide choice of top quality cars, and competitive total pricing.

Expedia's Total Pricing

Unlike some other online travel sites that show you a cheap discount rate for your car rental when you're shopping and then heap on taxes and fees when it comes time to pay, Expedia shows you the final price up front. What you see is what you pay.
