These days when you visit Detroit, it’s not just the lustrous, Golden-era history that will enchant you, but the revival of the city’s culture bursting around every corner. From the Heidelberg Project, a community project that fills downtown neighborhoods with art, to the young chefs raising the bar on the city’s already stellar eating options, you’ll have plenty to take in.
Pick up your Detroit airport car rental alternative upon arrival to get into all of Detroit’s nooks and crannies — and you won’t be able to miss the iconic local history of Motown and automobiles.
While there’s nothing as pressing as the present, Detroit wouldn’t be the cultural hub it is today if not for the past.
Step into this small house that was the birthplace of Motown music, and belt out a tune in the same Studio A where the likes of The Supremes and Marvin Gaye laid down their tracks.
In the suburb of Dearborn, you’ll find this extensive collection of exhibits on the evolving technology of automobiles, plus fascinating historical memorabilia, like the presidential limo from JFK’s last ride.
Presenting a broad view of the African-American experience from the Underground Railroad to the present, this large collection of artifacts, art, and stories provides an educational and moving journey.
For the quintessential Lake Michigan beach town experience, book your Detroit car rental alternative on Turo to snap out your towel on these fine dunes. You can also quaintly sip cider or cocoa in town.
After you get over the indignation of having to drive two hours into Ohio for hike-worthy terrain, direct your Detroit car rental alternative to this park, where your efforts will be rewarded with cold, hard waterfalls.
For a small-town feel in a city that isn’t actually small, head over to the home of the University of Michigan, where you can delight in the refined arts and dining scene, or football fandom.
Absolutely the easiest way to rent a car in Detroit. Beverly was amazing and very friendly. Highly recommend her to anyone.
I definitely recommend Shawn to anyone looking to rent a car in Detroit. He made sure that I had everything that I needed to ensure I had a some trip and I definitely will be renting through him again.
Great car. Syed was great to deal with. I’d use him again when I’m back in Detroit.
Was the best trip i had so far! Ron was a great host. Was available on THE FIRST CALL and the car was perfect, on time, and the feeling yu get while driving this car is unimaginable. Anytime i come back i will be renting with Ron!
Syed was my first rental on Turo. He has set the bar extremely high for the rest of all of you. This is why I used his services for my second rental. He is very professional yet warm and personable. When it's time to rent, look for his cars. Thanks Syed!!!
The car rental process is so easy and safe. Trevor is a great host, and always so accommodating.
My first time using Turo, no rental cars available, this was so convenient for me. Dasia was on time with the pick up and return,very friendly and good communication!
This car is Amazing!! Classy, Powerful and everything else one could possibly desire out of a high end luxury vehicle. To top it off Ali was a great host, great communication, flexible and provided top notch service to go along with an incredible driving experience! Thank you Ali we’ll be renting from you every time we come back to the Metro Detroit area.
This was my first Turo trip so I was a little Apprehensive at first but I have no complaints Stephen was extremely accommodating the car was immaculate I most definitely will be renting again in the future.
Kelly is amazing guy who rented me his silver Volkswagen Passat very clean gross sharp car well-maintain very reasonable guy on the prices always on time.
Once again mr shawnprovided .e with a good car and customer service next time in town ill b renting from him again for a 3rd time
Calvin was easy going and convenient to work with. Absolutely loved the car, had a couple maintenance notifications that Calvin was very upfront about before starting the trip. Would definitely recommend this vehicle 🚗
Beverly has a great set up! I’d say the best thing is close proximity to the airport! And she offers a very affordable pickup/drop off service (which others have a ridiculous cost). Beverly was also extremely nice enough to ask what time I needed to be back at the airport after drop-off. And because she wasn’t able to drop me off at the airport for my flight, she arranged an Uber for me! Now that’s going above and beyond! I’d give her 6 starts if I could. When I come back to the area, I will rent with her again! Best Turo experience thus far! Friendly and helpful! Thanks Beverly!
Zipporah's Lincoln is a Motown stunner. Very comfortable, clean and the perfect styling for getting around Detroit. She is very prompt on communication and so accommodating with delivery and drop off locations.
Car was great! Drove very smooth. Pick and drop off to airport was very convenient. Looking forward to renting with Beverly again!
This was by far the best experience I've ever had receive a car. Syed was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. This was my first time with Turo. Because of him I would definitely use it again.
Clean car, great communication and good gas mileage. Martez checked in during my trip and made sure all was well. He definitely knows what he’s doing and I would recommend any of his vehicles.
👍 great Host all around amazing. car in great condition and he responds quickly as well. Will rent again 😃
Trevor picked me up from the airport and he was prompt and polite. He stayed in contact with me so I knew right when he was pulling up. The Spark is a very small car, but it got me from point A to point B just fine. I only had to spend $15 for the half tank of gas I used so that was nice (it was good on gas). I would rent fro Trevor again.
Had a small issue and she swapped out cars for us, even brought the car to us.. great service.. until next time, thank you!
She was punctual and has great communication skills I’ll choose her over enterprise and hertz anyday
Have used this provider multiple times. Friendly, always on time, flexible to plan changes and the car is always as stated. Quick to respond.
Sommer was a great host. She communicated quickly when I had a question. She was prompt and thorough in the delivery and pickup of the vehicle. I will rent from Sommer again. This was a great experience and the vehicle drove well. No problems. I highly recommend Sommer.
Fast and easy pick up and drop off. Response time was within minutes and answered all my questions. Would rent again
Great service. Very convenient, clean fully working Car. Very Happy with Service and Turo. Telling all my friends about Turo. Thank you kindly.
The car was clean and ran smoothly, everything happened on time, and the hosts were kind. Highly recommend!
Car was clean and in good condition. Picked up and dropped off at the airport in a timely fashion.
I really appreciate all of help and support throughout my trip. From the beginning to the end you treating me so kindly. I definitely recommend a trip with him. He is the absolute best. If my cars ever go down again I will definitely be contacting you. Thanks again.
Spectacular experience! This was my first trip with Turo. Syed was waiting for us at the airport to deliver the keys, the process was smooth and efficient. He gave us a breif rundown on the car and we were on our way in less than 15 minutes. Dropping off the car was just as simple. The car was everything we hoped for, in near perfect condition, clean, luxurious, and a smooth comfortable ride. We had zero issues. I absolutely recommend the Alfa over any of the other rental options available near the airport.
I thought this ride went very smooth. I booked the car for 7 Days on a Detroit visit. This host showed up on time for both pickup and delivery. He made it a breeze. He was also very responsive when I sent him messages on the app. One of the best experiences I have had on Turo!
Great car smooth ride.. pick up and drop off easy good location.. Tekeila answer quick very friendly.
I was in town for a funeral , they were very accommodating picked me up from the airport , beautiful inside and out made me feel comfortable and welcome even spoke Spanish amazing you guy are the best!
Great, clean car. No issues, good communication, and really nice people. I would book again.
Super fun car, host made the whole process extremely easy and hassle free, highly recommend!
Mohamed is a superior Turo owner- attentive to every detail, reliable, punctual, prompt with his communication. Highly recommend. Would rent again from him any time.
The easiest and best rental I ever had. Car is like new, everything works. Great communication!
My rental was awesome! My new lady mentioned a love for Tesla Cars. I wanted to surprise her with a ride in one on the way to dinner. Our gracious host was kind and patient through a two week period of my lady getting sick and at least 3 cancellations and reschedules before we actually used the car yesterday. He also helped this first timer successfully negotiate the rental app and process. The car and my efforts made me look great and strengthened my budding relationship a lot! We may also be in the market for a new Tesla! Thanks
This was my second trip with one of Simons cars. Simon is professional, attentive and an experienced host. I expect to rent from Simon again. Great trip. Thanks Simon!
Beverly was kind and sweet! She was very flexible and worked with me when I had to cut my trip short due to a family matter. Thank you, Beverly, for an outstanding first Turo experience. I’ll be seeing you when I need to come to Michigan again, for sure :)
Great host. Reliable, great communication and car was advertised. Could not have asked for a better experience.
The car was very clean and rode smoothly. Tekeila was a great host who answered all my questions and made the pick up and return a seamless option!!! Would definitely book again
Car got me around town just like I needed for short runs. Quick and efficient. No frills or thrills, but what more can you ask for if you just need to get around.
Clean car. Very nice and professional host Looks like it’s family business and it’s well rolled and handled. Highly recommend this guys
Danielle was great and very nice. She made things super easy and communicated well. The car was perfect too. I highly recommend!
Great car, great host, highly recommend. Car is even nicer than the pictures and drives super smooth.
Great experience renting from Beverly! Easy to communicate with, and to work with:). Next time I need to rent a car, I’ll be checking with Beverly.
I love renting from Sean he's so understanding and flexible with his rentals. When I rent a car off this site I prefer to go thru him.
The car was perfect! Exactly what I needed to get around Detroit. Jash is hands down the nicest person I’ve ever rented a car from. Easy to talk to and ready to lend you a hand if you need anything at all! I would recommend anyone looking to rent a car in the Detroit area to check out Jash!
Syed was great! He made our trip so smooth. He delivered/picked up the vehicle curb side at the terminal, which helped us save time. The car was very clean and in a great condition. We very much enjoyed riding his car. I will definitely rent his car again for our next trip!
Taking care of emergencies in comfort and style. Rest assured that your sanity will be helped kept in check by taking a chance on this host and vehicle. In these times, it's comforting knowing a host is looking out for you by providing a sanitary vehicle in addition to extra ppe for our safety. I am more than happy with this rental, and the host's level of communication/service. Highly recommended 👌
This was the perfect vehicle for my trip while in Detroit! The host was great on communication and going the extra mile. I will definitely book again when I come back
I love doing business with awesome people this was more of a blessing as always thank you Tekeila! In welcomed back with a new upgrade for the steering wheel lock. 😌🙏🏾🙏🏾
First off, I’d like to commend Beverly for her top notch customer service. Someone extended their rental for the car we had reserved months in advance. Instead of canceling our reservation and leaving us “stranded” she gave us another car for our reserved time. She was extremely accommodating and I cannot express my full gratitude through this review, but thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness!
Simon has figured out the perfect way to do "Peer to-peer" car rentals. Its ingenious, really. Its essentially the same as renting from.an agency, without the extra cost and hassle at the desk. The parking shuttle from the airport drops you at the car. He unlocks it remotely, and away you go. I saved about 30% (No airport concession fees!) The car was as good as anything from an agency. The Fusion Focus is stingy on gas, but has all the pickup you need for in-town or freeway driving. Comfortable, clean. Just an all around great experience. Now I need to see if Turo qualifies as a "Travel Expense" so i can pay with Amex Rewards points.
Pick up and drop off were seamless. Vehicle clean and in great condition. No issues, and good communication with Aurfan. Would recommend.
Very nice and informational definitely will use her vehicle again if ever needed in the future.
Super nice guy, let me at airport, dropped me off after (short drive from his house), was easy going and no stress, was perfect. Thanks Syed!
Shawn made this a very pleasant rental. 5 stars. Great communication. Easy pickup and drop off. I much prefer his method to actually meet you or drop the car off in the ramp ( not a 10 minute shuttle wait, then ride the shuttle to the cheap parking lot by the Sheraton) This is my favorite turo to date. And the car was spotless. Ran beautifully. This isn't your Dad's old Honda accord. The 2020 is a very sporty ride and a joy to drive. Great car. Great guy renting it to you. Next time I'm in Detroit. This is my go to.
The car was exactly what I needed for my trip and the customer service was A+. I highly recommend renting this car from Simon when you are in town.
Great host! Picked us up and also flexed his schedule to accommodate us a bit early for our departure. Highly recommend!
Harrison is an awesome host! Very easy to get a hold of him and a guy who understands your needs! Thanks so much Harrison!
Very timely pickup from the airport and the vehicle was exactly as advertised. Perfect way to get where you need to go without breaking bank. Great service.
