Car Rental at Detroit Airport (DTW): All you need to know

Detroit in Michigan is quickly becoming one of the top tourist spots for people who enjoy visiting the Midwest. There is plenty to see here, from museums to the city’s zoo, but don’t rely on buses or taxis to see it all when you can enjoy the sights from the comfort of your own set of wheels. Make your next trip to Detroit cheap, easy, and fun by renting your own convenient transportation from CarRentals.com.

How can I get a cheap rental car at Detroit Airport?

We don’t need to tell you to browse and compare all the deals available to you to find the best rate, but you can also increase your chances of finding a low price. Consider the below tips:

  • - Know approximately how much mileage and fuel you’ll need in advance; 
  • - Think about your travel plans and choose a car based on your specific needs;
  • - Do you need a second named driver? Having just one will keep costs down.

Is there an age restriction on renting a car at DTW?

All renters will need to be 21. And there could be a surcharge if you’re under 25.

Which rental companies will I find here at Detroit Airport?

The wide range of rental companies here include Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and Budget. You’ll also see some smaller, local companies offering great deals. Browse their inventory to compare rates and check user reviews before you book.

Where are the rental car companies based at Detroit Airport?

The Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is located just outside of Detroit in the suburb of Romulus. Passengers arriving at the Detroit Metro Airport should accept their luggage from baggage claim, and then follow the signs to Ground Transportation. From that point, passengers can reach their Detroit Airport rental cars via a shuttle from the specific rental car agency.

Do I need to purchase car insurance for my rental car?

Yes, you’ll need to be insured before you get behind the wheel. If you don’t have your own personal cover through your current car or credit card insurance, you’ll need to look into getting a separate one. US citizens can purchase insurance through the checkout at CarRentals.com, or directly from the rental company they book with.

What do I need to bring with me when I collect my rental vehicle?

When you pack for your trip to Detroit, make sure you pop your credit card, your driver’s license and your insurance document in your bag, since you’ll need to present those at the car rental counter.

What fuel policy do you recommend?

For the sake of ease when you turn up to collect your vehicle, a full-to full policy is your best bet. Drive away with a full tank of gas and return the vehicle refilled – simple!

Should I hire a car with unlimited mileage?

Detroit is full of must-see spots, including Hitsville USA, the original home of Motown, the Henry Ford, an indoor/outdoor museum that has much more than automobiles, and the Detroit Zoo. Make sure you see it all without watching your miles clock up by choosing a rental car with unlimited mileage.

Can I book a one-way car rental at Detroit Airport?

One-way rentals are possible, though they might come at an extra fee, so check with your chosen rental company.

What type of car should I rent at Detroit Airport?

This is where the fun begins, as you get to choose whichever car type you like! Think about your travel plans and how much space you need in your vehicle and make your choice on this basis. Here are a few popular options:
