Rolling through
Motor City

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.

Detroit favorites

While there’s nothing as pressing as the present, Detroit wouldn’t be the cultural hub it is today if not for the past.

Motown Historical Museum

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.

The Henry Ford Museum

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.

Museum of African American History

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.

Michigan is surrounded by water, which means when you book your Detroit car rental alternative on Turo, you’re not far from a scenic escape into nature or a relaxing change of pace.

Book the perfect car
Saugatuck

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.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park

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.

Ann Arbor

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
