That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Detroit. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park.

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Detroit. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Budget rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Budget.
