Car rental insurance in Detroit

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Detroit car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Detroit.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Detroit car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Detroit

  • Experience the freedom and ultimate flexibility during your stay in Detroit and opt for a rental car upon your arrival. Public transport can be a hassle with delays, changing timetables, and expensive fares, so discover everything Detroit and the surrounding areas have to offer conveniently at your own place with a car.
  • Detroit Metropolitan Airport is situated just over 21 miles from the city center of Detroit, so with a rental car you will be at your next destination in under half an hour. Free shuttles pick travelers up from the terminals and bring them to the car rental center with companies offering vehicles of all shapes and sizes. The quickest way into Detroit is via the I-94 E.
  • Driving in Detroit can be a pleasant experience compared to many other US cities, as the streets are broad and usually well-lit. However, road conditions could be improved and potholes or cracks are not uncommon. Also be careful with lane changing, as in Detroit the left lane is not necessarily used by drivers to overtake, and they may even go slower than drivers in the right lane. Driving attentively and defensively will help getting around the city without any hassle or problems.
  • Michigan regularly has very cold winters with lots of snow, so when driving in Detroit during the cold season, make sure the rental car is equipped appropriately or ask for snow chains at a surcharge. During morning and evening rush hours (about 7-9 AM and 5-6 PM), traffic jams can occur, especially on the I-94, so, if possible, these times should be avoided to start a day trip. Always plan at least one hour in advance when driving during these times, and allow more time when going to the airport.
