KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Windsor

  • Consider using car rentals in Windsor to get around the city if you want an enjoyable vacation in Ontario. When compared to taking public transportation, Windsor car rentals provide a lot of benefits. For instance, you can arrange and change your trip schedules without telling anyone. You may visit some of the city's main tourist attractions, such as Jackson Park and Caesars Windsor, anytime. As opposed to using the city's buses and trains, you can take your pet along when you rent a car in Windsor.
  • Most tourists fly into Windsor International Airport (YQR) to enter the city. If you're traveling over the holidays, think about using the YQR on-site car rentals. This is due to the fact that the airport has a number of car rental companies, so you won't have to wait as long as you would at an outside agency. For instance, it offers car rentals from Hertz, Discount Car & Truck Rentals, Alamo, Europcar, Budget, and Avis, all of whose locations are near the baggage claim area of the airport.
  • Make sure the rental agency provides you with the restraint devices for the children's safety if you are using car rentals in Windsor. For instance, make sure your car has a booster seat or child seat, and always drive with your kids in the backseat until they are 12 years old and older. Watch out for potholes when driving a rental car on neighborhood roads; if not driven carefully, they could cause damage to your car's springs. Drive carefully in your Windsor car rental because Lauzon Parkway, University Avenue West, and Tecumseh Road East are some of the busiest streets and are where many pedestrians cross the street carelessly.
  • In the city, rush hours start at 7 am to 8:30 pm and 5 pm to 7 pm. During this time, high traffic always affects the majority of the roadways leading into the city center. Rearranging your travel plans to avoid this so that you may enjoy it is one way to prevent it from happening. You should also be aware of the city's major holidays, such as Labor Day or Independence Day, which, depending on where they are observed, may result in the closure of some city highways.

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Windsor?

    When choosing the type of vehicle to rent from any of the cheap car rentals in Windsor, consider the number of passengers and your location. An SUV or minivan is one of the recommended vehicle options for groups larger than four people. However, if you intend to drive these kinds of vehicles, parking spaces might need to be organized in advance. If the majority of your destinations are in the city center, think about getting a small car, such as a compact car. The modest parking spaces in the city center are just big enough for smaller cars. These vehicles may also fit through most of the congested city center streets.

  • What’s the speed limit in Windsor?

    Windsor's standard speed limit is 30 mph, but there are several roads where the restriction is a little higher or lower. For instance, you should not go faster than 25 mph on Sandwich Street, Matchette Road, and Malden Road. At Campbell Avenue, the speed limit increases to 45 mph. Your speed limit should be lower than 20 mph in areas around schools and hospitals.

  • What are the best places to park in Windsor?

    Consider parking in Lot 5 (Dieppe Riverfront) or Lot 10 (Park at Goyeau) for about C$2.32 (approximately $1.75) per hour while in the city center if you need a secure spot to leave your rental car in Windsor. Consider parking for free in Public Parking Garage #2 if you need to park quickly and for a shorter period of time than two hours. Only people visiting Windsor who are staying in hotels should take use of hotel parking.

I found out that the reservation was not st DTW, but rather at a smaller regional airport and, though on the phone the representative was very kind and transferred the reservation for no charge, at DTW the representative would not honor that and insisted on doubling the rate. So I left and rented from Thrifty.

It took me at least an hour to get my car. There were 3 agents working. Since I was doing a turn around flight this utilized far too much of my needed time. This was the LONGEST I've ever had to wait and get a car and the issue wasn't stock. There were plenty of cars on hand.

Cons:

I booked a car through Kayak to be available to me when I landed at the Detroit Airport. The car I reserved, for some reason, is not at the Detroit Airport. It's in Windsor Ontario. And the great price I received was in Canadian dollars so it wasn't so great after all. And when I attempted to contact customers service, there is none to be found. Nice job Kayak!

The car was dirty and rattled with every little bump in the road. But the most annoying issues was that the car charger didn't work therefore my gps died and I was lost 20 miles from my destination. I called alamo and they said no problem, just go to the nearest alamo to swap cars. Well... the nearest alamo was 50 miles away. Impossible to do, i was in the area on business. Ended up having to spend $150 for a new gps that would plug into the USP port. Very dissatisfied all around. Never again.....

I the email it said that they would like to offer me alternatives, but I was given zero and got the run around, oh and of course they were closed over the weekend when I got the email and I had to wait until a day before my trip to sort it out. No one helped at all, given zero alternatives, and just told to call priceline/discount company. I will never use them. Had to pay $500 more for a car since it was so close to when I needed it.

Jun. 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

Staff was great, helpful

Cons:

I was surprised to find no rental counter at Windsor station, just a video kiosk marked Discount (not even Eurocar). After calling, it took 20 minutes for an agent to arrive to pick us up and drive us another 20 minutes to the rental counter, where we took another 20 minutes to finally get the car and be on our way. That was nowhere advertised or stated, so it came as a surprise. As a minimum, I would suggest their confirmation email ask us to call 15 minutes before arriving so the shuttle can be there. Or they could monitor the train arrival times and just be there when our train arrives. Then you need to drop the car to the rental office over an hour before the train. Something to keep in mind.
