Top tips for renting a car in Ann Arbor

  • From the Michigan Stadium to the various golf courses and magnificent scenery around, Ann Arbor has plenty in store for travelers. Experience more flexibility when discovering everything the city entails by renting a car there. Whether visiting local attractions or driving out into the Michigan countryside, with a rental car there is nothing keeping you from exploring everything on your wish list.
  • Whether flying to Ann Arbor via the municipal Ann Arbor Airport or Detroit Metropolitan International Airport, both airports feature onsite car rental service desks, so picking up a car directly after landing is possible in any case. Travelers will most likely fly into Detroit Airport and the car rental center there can be reached with the courtesy shuttles provided. Head to the ground transportation, from where the shuttles depart regularly, to reach your car conveniently.
  • When visiting Ann Arbor during the winter, be prepared to face ice-covered roads and heavy snowfalls, as both are regular companions to the cold months. It is pivotal to check whether the rental car has winter tires fixed on and also to consider renting snow chains if planning to leave the city limits and driving into the countryside. It is crucial to adjust your speed and drive carefully if wintery road conditions prevail.
  • During peak times, traffic in Ann Arbor increases mainly on the ring roads I-90, M-14, and US-23, with commuters going in or out of the city. Morning rush hour is usually the most severe from 7 to 9 am, but compared to major cities it is a less intense experience. Evening rush hours peak between 6 and 7 pm and, if possible, driving through the city at these times should be avoided.
