Top tips for renting a car in Grand Rapids

  • Grand Rapids is plonked amidst the scenic countryside of Michigan, only a 40-minute car ride from the Lake Michigan and Huron-Manistee National Forests. The best way to explore the wonderful attractions in and around Grand Rapids is on your own four wheels, so pick up a rental car to make the most out of your trip to the city.
  • 13 miles southeast of Grand Rapids is the Gerald R. Ford International Airport, where travelers can conveniently pick up a rental car. The agencies’ counters can be found on the first floor of the parking garage and include internationally renowned companies like Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz. The quickest way to Grand Rapids’ center is via the I-96 W, which will take you to the city in 20 minutes.
  • The winters in Michigan can be very cold and bring lots of snow. Therefore, it is imperative to familiarize yourself with driving in snow conditions if you visit in the winter. Make sure the rental car is properly equipped and fitted with winter tires. It is also recommended that you keep an emergency kit in the car with band aids, water, a torchlight, and some snacks, in case you get stuck in the snow and it requires time to be reached. Also, if you do get stuck, never spin the wheels, as the tires will only dig deeper into the ground.

The roads are well-maintained in most areas and drivers are not aggressive or in too much of a rush compared to many other cities.
