Oil change alarm plagued us for 5 days. We were told to ignore the warning by the Hertz agent.

I was given an upgraded vehicle because the rental site did not have the car I reserved. This was great except I needed a particular size car for my sister who is in a wheelchair. The one problem with the vehicle was that it was too high up for my sister. I ended up having to borrow a car from a relative to take my sister out for lunch and errands.....

The staff were very friendly during drop off and pick up. It was a very speedy process. They even gave us a free upgrade to an SUV because the roads were in bad condition due to snow and ice. However, the car's tires weren't the best. It would have been nice to have a sturdier, more all terrain type of tire for the condition of the roads we were driving in.

I reserved a compact car, but none were available. They gave me a mini van (they did offer to allow me to drop it off at E instead of full). However, I was travelling to Chicago and had to put in gas anyway to cover the distance. The tire pressure light was on in the van. When I called the office to ask for another car, or if it was safe, they told me their mechanic had checked it out already. They didn't offer to switch to another car.

My one-way rental from Michigan to Kentucky went well. I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff in Michigan and the efficiency (30 seconds) of the return in Kentucky. I was surprised, however, that the rental car had 49,000 miles on it -- I usually expect to get a newer car than that.

We always try to get you the best price. However, you can remember a few things to keep your next rental affordable. Make sure to:

  • Compare daily and weekly rates from all the different suppliers
  • Book as far in advance as possible. You'll usually get the car of your choice and save more

Just following even a few of these tips can help you save on your Traverse City rental car.

What rental companies have outlets in Traverse City?

From budget-friendly brands like Economy and Budget to global names like Enterprise and Hertz, CarRentals.com has some of the best brands in the business. Scan through the reviews to get an idea of which one is best for your next trip.

What type of rental car should I get for my trip to Traverse City?

Whether you want a roomy family vehicle or a low-cost economy car, the sheer wealth of options in this Michigan metropolis means you're certain to find a car that is perfect for you. Some options include:

What's the age requirement to rent a car in Traverse City?

Normally, the age limit for renting a car in Traverse City is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an extra fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read the supplier's terms to figure out what the exact fee is before you rent your car.

Is insurance required to rent a car in Traverse City?

Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to buy additional insurance through rental car company, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Many credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover) will provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles such as trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Traverse City.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

You will need to search for a gas station close to your rental car supplier

What fuel policy do you recommend?

At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Traverse City?

If you plan to check out all that Traverse City and maybe even the rest of Michigan offers, you're going to want unlimited miles. You won't have to worry about extra charges if you decide to drive all over Traverse City. Go over the fine print to be sure they are truly "unlimited."

Know before you go

Be sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot on your Traverse City adventure. It's worth the time to:

  • Check out your vehicle and be sure there is no damage or scrapes. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Get comfortable working the entertainment and GPS (if available). You don't want any unneeded distractions in a new city
