KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Marquette

  • Car rentals in Marquette are advantageous for various reasons. The first one is that having your own car gives you the freedom to move around the city and visit any place that you wish at your own convenience, without having to work with bus schedules. There are also amazing places that one can tour around Marquette such as Lake Superior, the Presque Isle Park where one can jump off the cliff into Lake Superior, and also drive to the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse and enjoy a tour of the Marquette Maritime Museum.
  • For travelers flying into Sawyer International Airport (MQT), locating Marquette car rentals will be a breeze as the car rental offices are located within the airport. These can be found in the central U.P where car rental companies such as Almo, Avis, Budget, Dollar rent a car, Enterprise, Hertz, National Car Rental, and Thrifty operate. All that you require is to be 18 years and above, and have a valid driver’s license. Visitors who are not from the U.S or Canada, are required to have a valid copy of their home country’s license.
  • Going for a drive outside the city center is relatively simple, as the roads are wider, and provide a scenic view of Marquette. However, since the downtown area is busy, it is important that you drive carefully while keeping a lookout for pedestrians and cyclists. Drivers are advised to follow the 3-4 second rule to allow space between them and the car ahead. For easier navigation, you can also use GPS.
  • Despite driving in Marquette being an easy task, there are some challenges that come with driving in the city center especially rush hour traffic. In the morning, this starts at around 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m., while in the evening, traffic snarl-ups start at 4:30- 5:30 p.m. Northern Michigan University is also located in Marquette, meaning the traffic gets even more hectic when students are in session.
  • Book your rental car in Marquette at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Marquette are around 48% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Marquette?

    As you are looking for car rentals in Marquette, an important thing to have in mind is the number of people you are traveling with, and the luggage you have as well. If you are alone, we would recommend renting an economy rental car. For travelers who are in a group, or have their kin with them, then the best car would be an SUV, as it is roomier and will be more comfortable. If you are planning to stay within the city center, renting a smaller car would be ideal as it will be easy to fit into parking spaces.

  • What’s the speed limit in Marquette?

    There are different speed limits based on where you are driving in the city. For the residential streets, the speed limit is set at 25mph. On the freeway, car rentals in Marquette should stay within the speed limit of 75mph, while the state roadways allow up to 65mph. There are speed cameras in the city that help the Marquette traffic police track down traffic rule offenders, and those driving over the limit, therefore one should ensure that they drive with caution. Drivers should also slow down during winter seasons as the city experiences severe winters and the roads get slippery.

  • Where are the best places to park in Marquette?

    It can be hard to find parking space in downtown Marquette, as the streets are lined with shops, leaving narrow spaces to parallel park in. If you are lucky enough to get a spot, note that these spaces are metered and you will be required to pay $1 per hour. Pay stations can be found all over the area, and there are plenty of signs to direct you to one. Alternatively, drivers can pay using the Passport Parking App. If you are only parking to run a quick errand, there is a provision for 15 minutes of free parking. There are also various parking garages such as the Lakeshore North-97 l, North Main St., and Spring St. lots.

7.2 Good

Nov 2016

KAYAK

Pros:

Friendly and thorough staff, free upgrade when the car I requested was not ready on time.

Cons:

Uncomfortable car (corolla), free upgrade was a car with worse gas mileage so it ended up being more expensive for me

7.6 Good

Oct 2016

KAYAK

Cons:

Associates tell me it will be a small wait to give them time to clean the car I reserved. I said "No Problem" then the manager tries to "upgrade" the rental to a more exspensive car. I decline and tell them i'll wait. The manager continues with "Its only like 5-10 bucks more per day" and then just stares at me waiting for me to fork over more money. Again I decline. The manager leaves the office and returns less than 30 seconds later saying, "Just give him the upgrade, I dont feel like cleaning out the car he reserved" Just a bit of hassle, I would have much rather just picked up the car i reserved instead i was childishly going back and forth about upgrades when the whole reason he wanted me to spend more money was because he didnt want to clean out the car i reserved.

Pros:

Staff was friendly

Cons:

Had issues getting in contact, had to extend my rental, called and spoke to Sharon and she extended, told me she would call me back with information but never did. Days later I got a call from someone asking why I hadn't returned the car. I had to switch cars also cause my Impala had a low tire pressure front driver side and windshield wipers were bad.

No one was at the counter and there was no note as to when they would be back. Obviously I couldn't pick up the car I'd reserved. This was at 1:30 in the afternoon on a Friday. Thankfully Avis' counter had a rep there and was able help me out.
