8.0 Excellent29 Jan 2021
Pros: perfectCons: the ability to introduce and additional form of payment when the need arises due to extending the contract.
10.0 Excellent24 Jan 2021
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent20 Jan 2021
Pros: Checking in and pickup was super easy. I was allowed to pick out the vehicle from several SUVs.
8.0 Excellent8 Jan 2021
Cons: I waited 45 min for a shuttle from the airport. It was cold and snowy. I think having a direct phone number to the local office would have helped.
8.8 Excellent4 Jul 2017
Consistent, reliable servicePros: Quick, helpful shuttle service with friendly drivers. No-pressure check-in. I love that they accept my "no thank you" and move on. I get to the car quickly without a sales pitch. There are plenty of employees around ready to direct you. A cooler of free bottled water is a lifesaver on a long travel day. Brand new cars, very clean.Cons: Cheap plastic car felt and sounded like it might colllapse on every bump, was jittery on the highway, crappy handling and oomph. But great gas mileage and it was transportation. I'll never buy a Dodge, but you get what you pay for in an economy rental, and it got us where we needed to go.

6.4 Good5 Jun 2017
Pros: The attendant that helped in the parking lot-"Dexter", great custoomer serviceCons: Lengthy check in because of an issue pulling up my license number in the computer--showed a Canadian license. Constant trying to sell me other features that I had already said no to when I set up rental online. Slow.

10.0 Excellent16 Feb 2020
Pros: Tricia was top-notch, extremely helpful to me when I was picking up the car and dropping it off. I wish more rental car companies had people like her to help folks like me!
7.2 Good29 Dec 2019
Pros: 2019 Camry was a great car.Cons: $13/day to add a spouse as a driver is ridiculous. Every other car rental company that I’ve used does this for free. Will not be using Thrifty in the future on this basis.
3.6 Mediocre26 Dec 2019
Cons: Vehicle smelled like smoke. Vehicle not ready when arrived. Rude drop off.
7.2 Good10 Dec 2019
Pros: The pickup was easy since there was no other customer in the office. The place was D E A D. That was good for me.Cons: The drop off process was very poor. There was no attendant. I was just told to leave the car in the lot and walk away. Someone would process it later and send me a receipt. But one day later I still do not have a receipt !!
7.2 Good6 Dec 2019
Pros: The van ran good. We needed to keep it longer, it was very easy to call the 800 # and extent the time.Cons: The pick up & drop off process needs improvement. The people behind the desk seem indifferent and lazy. We had to write down the damage on the vehicle, which was dirty and hard to tell. Upon return, there was no one outside to accept the vehicle. When I went inside, I was asked to return the key to the vehicle & get the mileage. No one looked at the car
5.2 Okay21 Nov 2019
Pros: Staff was friendlyCons: The shuttle took 15min to come, it was nowhere in sight, while Avis and Hertz etc has 3 come by one after the other, barely picked me up right before 1am, it’s when they close, so i almost didn’t get my car. Stood in the cold for awhile. It wasn’t that unbearable but the fact that i saw everyone else’s shuttle come 3 times and my company closed at 1am and it was 12:52 when they picked me up. I would rather not use Thrifty’s again if i has a choice.
7.2 Good20 Nov 2019
Cons: Car was not ready when we arrived
7.2 Good15 Nov 2019
Pros: Nice carCons: Pick-up was hectic and I think I was charged more than I was quoted
8.0 Excellent14 Nov 2019
Pros: Drop-off was smooth. Car was clean and a good choice.Cons: The car was in need of an oil change the whole time, according to the display, as well as having the tire pressure low, which i had to look at the whole time, but no trouble, really. The computers were down at pick-up, which made the wait about an hour, but the agents were quite friendly and apologetic about the situation
6.4 Good28 Oct 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy. Process was quick.Cons: Booked a "luxury" car. Upon arrival I was told they didn't have any cars in that category. Why let me book it then? I ended up with a Toyota Corolla....hardly luxury. They said on the plus side, I didn't get charged any extra. I should have been charged less in my opinion. Why pay for luxury but receive compact?

2.0 Mediocre12 Jul 2020
Pros: Nothing. Dumped Payless rental retrieval of rental car to Avis center where the lines were horrendous. Waited for more than an hour long to get a car instead of full size SUV for which I paid for. Most horrible rental car experience!
2.0 Mediocre3 Jul 2020
Pros: The Budget car rental staff and policy are the worst I have ever dealt with. Especially Kayak. HOW CAN YOU LET A DRIVER RESERVE A VEHICLE THAT YOU MUST BE 25 TO RESERVE AND THEN CANCEL FOR A FEE. WITH NO AGE VERIFICATION. Completely B.SCons: HAVE AGE VERIFICATION BEFORE RESERVING A CAR THAT REQUIRES A CERTAIN AGE TO EVEN PICK UP!!!!!
6.4 Good31 Jan 2020
Pros: Car was nice, new, and clean.Cons: No one at front desk for 15-20 min when they opened. Hard to see signage at DTW. No one really there for dropoff outside too plus hard to see dropoff signage.
3.6 Mediocre27 Dec 2019

4.8 Okay4 Aug 2019
Pros: Drop off was easy, I'll give them that. But honestly, that was about it. Skip to "what could have been better for the rest of the story"Cons: Waited nearly an hour to pick the car up. One desk clerk checking in a line of people out the door. Cars weren't ready for customers, had to keep waiting for them to "find" cars from Avis (their parent company) to give to the folks in line in front of me. Car was absolutely filthy on pick up.
8.8 Excellent21 May 2019
Cons: Only reason you didn’t get Excellent was because I was told one price & then at the counter I was presented a higher price +$125.00 than I was originally quoted when I made the reservation.
4.4 Okay16 Apr 2019
Pros: Yes the staff was friendly and helpful and the drop off was easy. It took me awhile to locate someone to pick up the car.Cons: The cleanliness and smell in the interior of the car. The price to extend could have been less.

Pros: drop off was easy.Cons: car wasn't very clean. crumbs in car and tourist brochures from prior driver left inside. Gave a car different than ordered. Had to wait in the cold a long time for the shuttle.
2.0 Mediocre16 Mar 2021
Cons: I was denied a car because I was 21 without a credit card.
8.0 Excellent11 Mar 2021
Cons: My car started having check engine lights after the 2nd day & so my cruise control was disabled for the longest driving portion of my rental. I tried calling Budget about it & spent an hour on the phone, but just got sent back to the main menu after finally getting to talk to a live person and so I gave up. I ended up having to diagnose and fix the problem myself (the gas cap wasn’t on tight), but it took a couple of days before the check engine light went off & I could use the cruise control again.
4.0 Okay23 Feb 2021
Pros: Yes
6.0 Good28 Dec 2020
Cons: There was poor instructions given to where the car was to be found by the attendant. The vehicle didn’t not have updated registration tags, which could have been a bad experience for me. The car had a very awful smell.
10.0 Excellent27 Dec 2020
Cons: It was a little confusing that Avis and Budget were renting from the same kiosk.
6.0 Good5 Nov 2020
Cons: Pickup and drop off were painful. I literally spent more time in line and waiting for the car than I spent flying from Baltimore to Detroit.
3.6 Mediocre27 Oct 2020
Cons: I returned the car full but yet they charge me $40 for gas they are thieves
4.8 Okay8 Sep 2020
Pros: The staff in Detroit was friendly.Cons: I reserved a full sized car and at check-in I was asked if I would take a minivan instead. I said OK even though I knew I that I would be buying more gas. The agent motioned toward the parking lot and said your car is out there. He gave me a slot number and I wandered around for at least 15 minutes trying to find my minivan before the driver a passing vehicle offered me a ride to find it. Eventually, we found my vehicle and in more than 40 years of renting cars, this without a doubt this was the filthiest one I EVER received. I almost went back to the counter to refuse it, but with a 10 hour drive ahead of me I wanted to get on the road. Leaving the lot I expected to have the gate attendant review any damage. I told him that there was body damage to the car and he said, "we don't care about what we don't intend to repair" and he waived me on out without leaving his booth. The minivan drove OK, but as expected got poor fuel economy. When I arrived in Newark to return the vehicle, the check-in agent took my paper work and seemed surprised when he said, "you know you've go body damage on the right side of the car." After a moment of panic, I had to show this person that the damaged areas had been marked up in Michigan. He shrugged and said, "OK" before dismissing me. The bottom line, I will think twice before renting another can from Budget.

3.6 Mediocre9 Jul 2020
Cons: I already explained this - I booked the rental car with a flight to DTW, and instead they gave me a car at the downtown detroit location. They said I could actually rent from the airport location if I would simply pay double the amount that was quoted. I ended up walking to another rental company.
4.4 Okay9 Jul 2020
Pros: staff was courteousCons: I rented the car and selected "DTW" as the location. When I arrived they said I had actually booked the car at the downtown location. They said that they could give me the same car but for double the price. Since I had a one-year-old with me (and the rest of the family) I couldn't take an Uber, so I ended up walking to another car rental company and renting for them. The overall cost was ~$200 higher, though cheaper than what Enterprise offered. It should be made much clearer to people that when they book a flight to Detroit, the rental car should be at the airport location only.
2.0 Mediocre27 Dec 2018
accidentally booked car at WRONG facility! had to Cancel, No car availPros: price was affordableCons: the car was at another facility when I arrived, I had no ride to get it, and they could not give me a car there because they were booked. I thought the slogan is "we'll pick you up" but they wouldnt drive me to another facility. disappointed. booked online with budget while i was waiting and walked across the street. got my car then cancelled enterprise.
7.2 Good5 Nov 2018
Pros: The customer service was great during pickup. I accidentally went to the wrong location to pick up. Brooke at the DTW airport location was very helpful. Once I got to the correct location - customer service there was great as well.Cons: The car smelled of marijuana, I didn’t notice it until I had already left the pickup location because they brought the car to me with the windows down. I don’t think it had been cleaned very well because there were candy wrappers in the glove compartment and splatters of something on the passenger side door.

2.0 Mediocre1 Sep 2020
Pros: The rental car itself was ok.Cons: Kayak booked my reservation 30 minutes away from the airport. When this was determined by the staff at Hertz Detroit airport, they were unwilling to help arrive at a solution. I had to leave the Hertz area and book through Thrifty/Dollar in order to obtain a rental car. Additionally, the area where I needed to work with the Hertz Detroit airport representative was in a closed in space, making me less comfortable during COVID.

Great car, some staff not-so-greatPros: Car was excellent -- clean and ready to go. Unnecessary stress at initial check-out, but returning the car was quick and easy.Cons: Initial check-out was bad. Credit card reader didn't work, and rather than try another one (that particular card reader wasn't working), I was told to call the third party I had pre-paid for the rental (Kayak) and tell them I'd have to use a different card. Finally, I went to a different clerk further down the counter who simply ran my card on her card reader and it was fine. The whole encounter added another 15 minutes of unnecessary stress. I had also noticed the customer in front of me having a similar problem with the same clerk.
10.0 Excellent11 May 2017

Disappointed in Avis quality controlPros: The Volvo V60 was an awesome car overall — really comfortable, responsive and got good gas mileage.Cons: Almost everything went wrong with this 3 day rental. I wasn’t on Avis Preferred yet that’s my tier listing. The car class we ordered (intermediate SUV) wasn’t available although the parking lot was PACKED with SUVs — we tried to take several others but “they weren’t in the computer” (in all fairness, our agent, Sara, was really great — it appeared to be a back office and operations staff problem). Since we had waited 45 minutes already, we swapped UP to the Volvo V60 - the car stank of cigarette smoke, it hadn’t been washed (why was it in the system if it hadn’t been cleaned?) and it had big scratches on three sides. We stopped at the exit gate and had the nice guy there fill out a damage report including the smoke. Then the low tire pressure guage went off — we filled up the tires and it still stayed on the whole weekend — stressful! We had guests who told us our car stank of smoke.... When we returned it, there was no one there to do a check in (on a Monday at 5pm) for 15 minutes... THen I had to show him my damage report — he wanted to take it — I told him “no way - this is MY copy and you have your own.” Guess he gave up and just charged me. Probably someone else is getting the car without a cleaning also... Detroit - get your act together!

2.0 Mediocre17 Aug 2016
Cons: Your website had a picture of a convertible which is what we wanted. Of course there were none but the people from National said that this is a trick by Kyak to deceive their customers. We were really wanting that car and got screwed. Thanks for the LIE
4.4 Okay16 Jul 2016
Pickup was terrible. Drop off was easyPros: The car was great and drop off was quick and easy.Cons: The pickup was terrible. Attendant in the lot just stared right through me as I asked a question 3 times and then yelled into his radio. Eventually I gave up and figured it out myself. He never acknowledged that I was even standing there. Then i walked all the way across the lot to the building and the clerk inside asked a bunch of questions about insurance even though I purchased it when I booked the car. I didn't know it was third party but he acted like it was no good. Then told me to go out by the fence to get a truck. The only vehicles by the fence were needing maintenance. Someone drove by and told me to go back in and have him call for one. So I did. Waited 15 more minutes and the lady from Alamo came to ask if I was waiting for a truck and that it had been parked on the other side.

Top tips for hiring a car in Detroit

  • Experience the freedom and ultimate flexibility during your stay in Detroit and opt for a rental car upon your arrival. Public transport can be a hassle with delays, changing timetables, and expensive fares, so discover everything Detroit and the surrounding areas have to offer conveniently at your own place with a car.
  • Detroit Metropolitan Airport is situated just over 21 miles from the city center of Detroit, so with a rental car you will be at your next destination in under half an hour. Free shuttles pick travelers up from the terminals and bring them to the car rental center with companies offering vehicles of all shapes and sizes. The quickest way into Detroit is via the I-94 E.
  • Driving in Detroit can be a pleasant experience compared to many other US cities, as the streets are broad and usually well-lit. However, road conditions could be improved and potholes or cracks are not uncommon. Also be careful with lane changing, as in Detroit the left lane is not necessarily used by drivers to overtake, and they may even go slower than drivers in the right lane. Driving attentively and defensively will help getting around the city without any hassle or problems.
  • Michigan regularly has very cold winters with lots of snow, so when driving in Detroit during the cold season, make sure the rental car is equipped appropriately or ask for snow chains at a surcharge. During morning and evening rush hours (about 7-9 AM and 5-6 PM), traffic jams can occur, especially on the I-94, so, if possible, these times should be avoided to start a day trip. Always plan at least one hour in advance when driving during these times, and allow more time when going to the airport.

  • A 4-wheel drive car is advisable for this area, especially during the winter season. Even though pick-up trucks are a beloved choice of vehicle of the people in Detroit, a more compact car is recommended when driving in the city, as changing lanes and finding a parking space becomes considerably easier.

  • Always adhere to the speed limits given on posted signs. Generally, 25 mph are permitted in residential areas, 55 mpg on unposted highways and up to 75 mph on freeways. The Basic Speed Law also applies, which means driving as fast as is sensible and adapting to the weather and road conditions.

  • The average gas price in Detroit is technically $2.90 per gallon but at gas stations like CITGO, it can go as low as $2.30 per gallon. Gas stations around the airport and alongside the freeway can be more expensive, so check in advance how much gas you have so you do not have to opt for the first station you see, even if it costs more than others.

  • Street parking, parking lots, and garages are all good options for parking a rental car. Street parking is mostly metered and operated usually between 8 AM and 6 PM Mondays through Saturdays, so parking outside these times is free of charge. Garages include the Buhl Garage or Cadillac Square, but with prices ranging from $15 to $24 per two hours, they are a rather pricey solution. Generally, parking in Detroit comes at a cost, so opting for a hotel with a parking lot is recommended.
