Way better than a rental car

Rolling through Motor City

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.

Detroit favorites

While there’s nothing as pressing as the present, Detroit wouldn’t be the cultural hub it is today if not for the past.

purple lines

Motown Historical Museum

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.

The Henry Ford Museum

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.

Museum of African American History

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.

I hope I have excellent experience with this rental car

Not the best looking car, but it’ll get you from point A to point B. Sean was very helpful and had pickup/drop off set up really well. When the headlight blew. He was very helpful about replacing it during my trip. Would highly recommend.

I found this car last minute on a business trip, needless to say I was fortunate enough to rent through amazing and caring owners. They went out of their way to accommodate my situation. Great communication and caring people to work with. I couldn’t recommend them more, A+++
Charlie P.- July 9, 2021
The vehicle that I used from Mohamad was awesome, it had a full tank of gas, everything worked on the vehicle and it was very clean. The air freshener used made the car smell sooo good. I appreciate Mohamad for giving and trusting me with his vehicle, and even gave me extra time to return it. I am so glad I was able to get this vehicle, his wife was so hospitable beyond my imagination. This trip was awesome, thank you so much, I am so grateful to you both Lida, you are a beautiful person…. Thank you.

Hit the road

Michigan is surrounded by water, which means when you book your Detroit car rental alternative on Turo, you’re not far from a scenic escape into nature or a relaxing change of pace.

Book the perfect car
Way better than a rental car

Saugatuck

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.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park

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.

Ann Arbor

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.

I love Turo! I have low credit, so everytime I rent a car I have to put down a security deposit. Plus since I have no credit card, I dont even qualify for high end vehicles like f 150s and big SUVs. Also since it's the summer after covid restrictions, all rental companies doubled their rates! Turo saved my vacation and gave me an affordable alternative and everything worked out great! This will be the wave of the future! Thank you turo!

The customer service from the pickup at the airport to the drop off was excellent. I would recommend this company to anyone in the DTW area that needs a clean and reliable car. Beverly made it super easy to make changes and update my trips duration with no problem at all. For anyone skeptical of renting outside of national companies don’t be with the Turo app or this particular company.

The trip was nice and easy. I was able to pick up the car and drop it off with ease. The only thing was the communication in the beginning was a little off but everything turned around and Sean was very accommodating when I missed my flight and had to push my reservation back. Next time I’m home.. I’ll for sure be renting from him again!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Amazing experience! The customer service & communication was top notch. The vehicle was exactly as advertised. It was clean, had a full tank of gas, and it operated perfectly. We even had the option of adding a booster seat for my young daughter and it was waiting in the car for us already installed. Picking up and dropping off was smooth and quick. Booking a rental car via Turo with Syed’s vehicle was way easier (and cheaper) than dealing with a conventional rental car service. It simplified our travel logistics and reduced wait time by a lot. This was my first time using Turo and I will continue to use Turo in the future. Very happy with the price and the overall experience. Thanks Syed! You were so gracious, kind, and helpful. 🙏🏽
