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 service, best place to rent a car when your in Detroit, picked me up from the airport and was great with communication throughout, will be my go to car rental when I visit Michigan
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.
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!
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.
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
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!
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.
Syed is very kind and helpful with great communication. He gave us a round trip ride from the airport to our hotel after knowing that we couldn't fit our luggage into the Giulia. The car is beautiful and fun to drive. Great experience!
I enjoyed this car, Ty is a nice person, willing to assist you in any way, the communication was very fluent, the car was clean, I definitely will rent it in a future time!
Very pleasant and helpful took his time to explain everything about the car . The car was vey clean and fun to drive. I will definitely rent again!
Clean car, the owner of the car is new to the app, but is nice and responsive. I definitely will rent again, thank you.
The process to pick up the car was very easy to follow and Simon is very responsive for any questions. Would rent with Simon again!
Syed was awesome! The car was awesome! Clean, ran great. Very well maintained. Super fun to drive and easy to get around town in. I highly recommend renting this car!
Simon was very helpful, smooth process, and car was as represented. I will rent again when I’m in the area...thank you Simon for being a great host.
Overall I had a great experience renting Trevor's Tesla Model 3. Pickup and drop off was super simple. Trevor responded quickly to my questions. Would rent again!
Simon was awesome with communication and ease of use for this trip! Could not recommend more!
Trevor was amazing. The communication, process, and everything were super easy and smooth. The vehicle was incredible and extremely spotless. If you are wanting to experience a Tesla, I highly recommend renting it from Trevor. I am looking at purchasing a Tesla in a few years and having the ability to drive his Tesla, it has made up my mind. Thank you for listing your vehicle for rent at a decent price! Grade A+++ communication, smoothness, and vehicle.
Gregory’s Malibu was clean, well-equipped, and comfortable. Gregory was GREAT with communication and worked with us to pick up and drop off the automobile. Very professional and punctual !!! I would recommend Gregory and this car to anyone.
Zipporah was an incredible host and her Lincoln MKZ was a pleasure to drive! First class luxury experience all the way around!
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.
Stephen was incredibly flexible and gracious. The car is spotless and is fun to drive. Would definitely recommend.
Love the newer Ford Fusions. Zenda was great host. I definitely plan on renting from her again..
Good car and good host. Kajan made it easy and simple for my family to be mobile while we visited.
Aurfan is great host! The car is super clean and drives really smooth. Will definitely book again! Thank you!:)
Syed was great with communication, he was prompt on the pick up. His vehicle was nice and clean . I would definitely come back and rent from him again.
Very cooperative and flexible. Car was clean and well groomed. Complied with mask requirements. Good experience all around.
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 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 1st experience! Brandon accommodated all our needs plus more! Would rent from him again!
Great car! Aurfan was very accommodating and on time. He picked me up from the airport shortly after my flight landed. We did have to drive to a near by lot to drop him off at his car. The lot was very close to the airport (5 min drive), so no problem!
Miles was a blessing!! He was on time. He worked with us in every way. I would definitely recommend him. The car was in excellent condition.
MotorCity has to be the most professional, flexible, customer service oriented outfit on Turo. You wouldn’t find a better run business in any car rental agency, and I would recommend anyone who reads this to rent from them. If they say it, it’s fact. If you need something, they will make it happen. If you’re looking for good people and value customer service, look no further. Amazing experience. Highly, highly recommend. Yes, the cars are gorgeous, they drive incredibly well and are extremely well taken care of. But product is replaceable, people are not, and MotorCity has the best. That’s it, that’s all, that’s everything.
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.
This was my first experience using Turo for a car rental. I wanted to rent an electric car, and found limited electric car rentals through standard companies. I rented the Chevy Bolt with Simon and had a great experience! The Bolt is a fantastic car, and Simon made the rental quite easy. There are some added tasks to this type of rental- had to take pictures of the car before and after, etc. But I am protected from a fraudulent claim by those pictures as well, so I liked the idea. The car was clean, ready to go, fully charged, and at the pick-up location when we got there. Getting it back to the parking area was easy and Simon explained everything clearly. I will use Turo again, and would recommend renting with Simon if you are in the Detroit area!
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!
Great people, responded to all my text, questions and concerns, easy to work with. Thank you
Aufan was very attentive and was on time. The veh was clean and drove really well.... Great job
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.
Syed is an excellent host. Reliable, on time, friendly, good communicator and helpful in every way. The Alfa is beautiful. Immaculately clean-like new. Highly recommend!
Simon's Chevy Cruze was the perfect rental for my Detroit trip. The car was clean, fast and great on gas. Pick up and drop off was straight forward thanks to Simon's detailed instructions. I would definitely rent from him again.
Great ride. Was easy to reach and have great communication and customer service. Really enjoyed the ride. The driver was also great. Overall Great experience !
Simon was great to work with. He responded to messaging very promptly. Instructions were clearly laid out. The car itself was spotless and ran great. I drove it from Detroit to Toledo and back without any difficulties. This was my first time using Turo and he did a great job of answering all of my annoying questions. Definitely recommend Simon for anyone looking to rent a car!
Great person to rent a car from Very honest and trustworthy will recommend His service and rent again
Jason and his spouse Cristina were really great. I definitely recommend them if you want to rent a car from DTW airport. I'mgoing to rent the same car again in a couple of weeks for another trip!
Great host!! Accommodated with early pick up and location convenient. Relieved the rental fee from host is the same prior to COVID pandemic. Disappointed in Turo though -- the company regulates insurance and other misc. fees. Fees were half of the car rental like never before!! Why Turo?! Since this COVID pandemic, it seems companies fees have skyrocket.
Aurfan was great and the whole experience was really smooth. Made my quick trip to Detroit even better and easier than imagined. Car was just what I needed. Would recommend renting his car to anyone.
Easy rental. Great car! Communicating with Trevor on pickup and drop off was easy - just follow the detailed steps he provides. He was also quick to respond to questions I had during the trip. It was my first time in a Tesla, so google was my best friend - specially on “how to turn off Tesla Model 3” 😂
This was my first trip with Turo and Beverly made it a great experience that I will definitely be using the app again! I rented the Dodge Avenger. It was the perfect car to get me around all weekend at the right price. It was clean and ran good literally no complaints! If I’m flying into Detroit anytime soon and need a car I will keep an eye out on Turo for a car from Beverly again
Excellent Turo operator with affordable and reliable cars. Host Beverly picked us up at the airport and was very helpful with local information. Car was clean as a pin. I encourage everyone to support this small business when traveling through Detroit. Five stars!
First time Turo user and Simon made it a great experience. I came to town for a friends funeral so the trip was already not enjoyable and I could not find a rental for the weekend. I stumbled on Turo, and it was a great solution! I received really detailed instructions from start to finish, my car was in good shape, tank was full, and it came with a radio adapter so I could play my Pandora via Bluetooth which was a nice touch. Thank you Simon for taking care of me!
I can literally write a book about the service I had with Simon, but I won't. Just know he is the best, if I could give him 10stars I would. 1st thing 1st, the service I had with him was Outstanding even from the time I booked the car (had just learned of turo). He was within secs of answering the issue I had. I wonder do he even sleep. The car was clean inside & out. Exactly where he said the car & everything would be it was. That Honda also rode like a new car (I have 2 of my own). If you need a car in the Detroit area book Simon, you won't be disappointed. I look forward to booking again from Simon. Again, thank you for EXCELLENT SERVICE!!!!
Ray is an awesome host.! The car was clean and a lot of fun to drive. I would highly recommend renting from Ray if you are in the Detroit Metro area. Thanks again Ray! 👍
Syed was very kind and accommodating. The car was very nice and clean. I would rent from him again!
Trevor was communicative and friendly. Trip was great! Car was clean and rode well.
Beverly is amazing! Very understanding and very easy to work with. I’ll definitely be driving one of her cars again!!
Simon had great communication in getting a rental car setup for me. When one option wouldn’t be available at the time I needed be accommodated with another option. Everything went smoothly and pickup/drop off at Qwik Park was very easy from the airport. I would definitely rent from Simon again if I am back in Detroit.
I make this trip a lot to Detroit. I have used other Turo in the past but Obey was the best by far! I highly recommend him and the car was in perfect shape just amazing!
Renting the car from Jash was great! Communication back and forth was easy making pick up and drop off seamless at the airport. The car was clean and well stocked if issues arose. The car was a good value and I highly recommend renting from him. Whenever I’m back in Detroit and need a rental car he will be the first I look for.
Great rental! Simon was helpful and gives great information to help with the process. Will rent again next time I’m in town.
They were so kind to me and the car worked just like it should. They worked with me when I missed my flight AND when I extended my trip. Yes, the car has some dents and such but if you want something to just get around in at a good price, this is it.
My host Beverly was very efficient and helpful. The Car was as new. She made trip to Metro airport and delivered the car. Couldn’t ask for any better service. Thanks again Beverly.
Kevin was amazing. He was very polite and professional. He made me feel really comfortable with renting from him. The car was clean, drove smooth, the inner lights were soooo cute. Kevin trip was by far the best experience I had with Turo.
Trevor was an amazing host! Very responsive to all my questions. His car is awesome. Took a little bit to get use to but felt amazing to sit back and relax in rush hour traffic and let the car drive on its own. Will definitely rent from Trevor again in the future.
Simon is a great host. This is my second rental through him and it couldn’t be easier. This car was spotless in and out, and communication was top notch. If I can help it, I will only rent from Simon when in Detroit.
